Squaremeal Review of Bob Bob Ricard ?

Squaremeal London Hot 100 2016It's difficult not to be won over by Bob Bob Ricard's heady combination of luxe comfort food, on-point service and Russian ostentation (restaurateur Leonid Shutov is co-owner). Green leather-bound booths and shimmering surfaces set the scene for Anglo-Russian flavours that include plump Siberian pelmeni (soft beef and lamb dumplings), moist lobster-stuffed baby chicken and velvety, fall-apart braised lamb shoulder. The menu drips with high living: truffles, caviar and Champagne sauces abound. Of course, the impenetrable facade is prime celeb-bait, adding to the sense of occasion if you're so inclined – if not, the "particularly wonderful" Champagne button installed on every table should do the trick. We're told they sell more fizz than any other UK restaurant, and the Francophile wine list is happy to make favourable price comparisons with its Mayfair competitors. "Playful without being pretentious", this is worth the splurge.

    Elle Bloggs :: BOB BOB RICARD

    To mark the success of a recent campaign at work, we were treated to a celebratory meal at Bob Bob Ricard. Nestled away in Soho, the dining room is adorned with brass fitted booths, high ceilings and waiters dressed in candy pink waistcoats AND if that wasn’t enough, they have a button you can press for champagne…I know right?!

    The food is described as a mix of British/Russian and there’s everything from caviar and oysters to steaks and lobster on the menu as well as an astounding offering of vodkas...

    The Square 8211; Sam The Food Fan :: Bob Bob Ricard – Sam The Food Fan

    Bob Bob Ricard, so good they named it twice! Actually ‘Bob’ is the nickname of the Russian owner who owns two thirds of the business, hence the second Bob and Ricard is taken from the other owner’s name, Richard Howarth. It has been on my bucket list from day one of the blog. I have had drinks there before, a long time ago and I decided that instead of following the rest of the crowd on a January detox, I would spoil myself. What better way to start the new year than with total self-indulgence and I couldn’t think of a better place to do it. The healthy eating can wait….

    The restaurant is styled on the Orient...

    SilverSpoon London :: SilverSpoon London - A luxury lifestyle blog : Bloggers' Double Date at Bob Bob Ricard

    Bob Bob Ricard! Now BBR has been voted one of the 30 most Instragrammed Restaurants, and rather like a reality TV star the 'Press For Champage' button has got rather over-exposed on social media. Now, I have to admit, this put me off going a bit, but it shouldn't have. Bob Bob Ricard is one of the most beautiful and fabulously glam restaurants in London. The restaurant is all booths which makes for an intimate dining experience and gives the feeling of being on the Orient Express...

    Andrea's Passions :: Bob Bob Ricard: Champagne at the Touch of a Button, #Whoops - - Andrea's Passions

    I have tried to book a table at Bob Bob Ricard many-a-time since first hearing about the infamous ‘Press for Champagne’ button positioned at every table. Yes, EVERY table. But, funnily enough, most people (/women) appeared to have the same brilliant idea, which meant that tables were only ever available at most inconvenient dining times, despite trying to book months in advance. Enter Lauren Hudson, an absolute gem of a person & blogger, who managed to snag us a table at 6pm last Saturday. My elation at finally visiting the venue that pours more champagne than any other restaurant in the UK, and at last meeting this...

    Ramblings of a Food Addict :: An Instagram Frenzy at Bob Bob Ricard | Ramblings of a Food Addict

    I have always been a lover of social media and back in the days of MySpace, Bebo, Faceparty (we’re not even going to mention Habbo Hotel), the journey of social media has been a huge part of growing-up on the internet. Gone are the days where social media lingered only in your home but now it’s well-encompassed into our everyday lives, wherever you may be.

    My new love affair is with Instagram, which has led to obsessing over beautiful imagery and also attempting to create that perfect messy-but-not-really picture. Bob Bob Ricard has to be one of the most Instagrammed restaurants in London and there’s a few...

    The Lifestyle Diaries :: The Lifestyle Diaries: Girls' Date Night at Bob Bob Ricard

    A couple of weekends ago I had the pleasure of finally meeting the lovely Andrea, from Andrea's Passions, for a very special dinner at Bob Bob Ricard - the home the famous Press for Champagne button. Anyone familiar with the restaurant will know that it can be very difficult to get a reservation at BBR, and so when we discovered that there was a 6pm seating we jumped at the chance!

    Well, when you're at Bob Bob, there's only one thing to do as soon as you sit down: Press For Champagne!...

    Curious London :: Curious London: Bob Bob Ricard

    My father, who famously eats almost anything, once told me that eating oysters is like “swallowing a cup of cold snot”. He is not wrong, I’ve tried them myself. Until last week, though, I’d never had one baked, which turned out to be quite revelationary. A baked oyster is the smoother, softer cousin of the scallop, and this one was smothered in melted parmesan and black truffle, a shellful of rich flavour that was silky, not slimy. It was exquisite.
