Square Meal Review of Gail's Kitchen ?

Following the success of its artisan bakery and café chain, Gail’s has launched its first restaurant proper – an all-day venue done out in soft grey tones, serving eclectic snacks and small plates as well as its much-vaunted breads and pastries. Located alongside the reception area of Bloomsbury’s myhotel, it’s not only a handy drop-in for guests but is also pitched at the local passing trade, with a dozen barstools overlooking the open kitchen. Bread naturally underpins much of the menu, from Taleggio and truffle-cream toasties to satisfyingly rich smoked mackerel rillettes served with wafer-thin slices of toasted rye, but also expect meatier dishes such as slow-cooked oxtail with baked ratte potato. Prices are a touch high, but don’t leave without trying the show-stealing desserts – gooey chocolate-chip cookies straight from the oven, for example. There’s a branch of Gail’s Bakery next door.

    Munch My Way :: Gail’s Kitchen, Tottenham Court Rd.

    Gail’s Kitchen serves some pretty darn good food for a relatively good price. The place is owned by the famous Gail’s Bakery and was recently awarded the Michelin’s Bib Gourmand 2014.

    The food is inspired by bread and bread oven that was transferred from Gail’s Artisan Bakery. The food is all about sharing as each plate comes in a sharing size portion...

  1. This review of Gail’s bakery will be short and sweet…much like what our experience was like when visiting them after an excellent lunch at Morito. The desserts at Gail’s bakery are excellent and it’s an excellent spot to just hang, drink some coffee and munch on some delish desserts...

    Saying it straight :: Gail’s Kitchen.

    If you’ve been to a Gail’s Bakery, then you’ll have some idea of the feel of the place. Gail’s Kitchen is their new restaurant. It will be no surprise to you that bread is a key element in their offering and given my deep and enduring love of carbohydrate, this makes me very happy.

    And on top of the excellent bread selection, that comes as you sit down, you can have some more bread-y things as you go along.

    The waitress politely suggested that Renaissance Man and I had chosen too much food. She doesn’t know me. I suspect that we could have done justice to our original selection, but no-one, least not me, wants to look greedy – at least not at the beginning and so we stuck with the recommended number of dishes – almost. Renaissance Man did, I am pleased to say, sneak one in at the final moment, for which I was most grateful. I think you could easily demolish 2-3 dishes each. If not more. I know I could...

  1. Tucked away behind the hustle of Tottenham Court Road lies not one, not two, but three gems. Gail’s Bakery and Gail’s Kitchen with Myhotel Bloomsbury appropriately sandwiched between the two. Gail’s Kitchen - a recent offshoot of the bakery with ex River Cafe chef James Adams fronting the kitchen. A daily changing menu of small plates from £7 upwards, many based around bread and cooked in the bread oven...
