Squaremeal Review of Little Social ?

While big boy Pollen Street Social continues on its worldly way, this petite sibling across the road pays homage to the Parisian bistro, right down to its red leather banquettes, posters and Michelin road map on one wall. But Jason Atherton's take is no pastiche, delivering a menu that's focused, spirited and full of "finesse". British ingredients are joined by top produce from abroad (note the ever-present Umbrian white truffles), so expect surprising match-ups: cod brandade comes with a scattering of lemon zest and bottarga, while spiced cauliflower and duck broth gives roast Cornish cod an "extraordinarily flavoursome" Asian makeover. Steak tartare is "one of the best ever" and there are headline burgers and bone-in rib-eyes too, plus a clutch of creative desserts. Wines and service also get full marks. Some diners may be put off by the noise (a killer for romance), but we love the ebullient energy of the place.

Wine List of the Year Award Finalist

This Parisian-style bistro across the road from the main Pollen Street restaurant is a good example of condensation, with fewer than 50 wines, half by the glass/carafe. It’s heavily French, but there are still flashes of quirkiness alongside the classics, it looks great and it’s easy to follow.

    Culina Sophia :: Little Social - Review - Culina

    Little Social is impeccable. Nestled in a slither of a side street, it is an Elysium secluded from the tourist-thronged pavements of Regents St. Jason Atherton’s classic French bistro interior strikes a harmonious balance between refined elegance and comfortableness. Johannes, soon-to-be manager, glides around the room attentively, infusing it with his charm. The menu is French inspired Modern European with subtly innovative twists and combinations...

    It seems that Jason Atherton is becoming increasingly famous and successful. I think he has opened branches in Hong Kong and Singapore. Naturally, having being to Pollen Street Social, I felt I had to try another one of his social events. Little social. Slightly fastidious person that I am, I also brought along my big camera. However, due to my friends’ lack of appreciation for my methodical methods, my photos didn’t turn out that well. Well, that’s my excuse at least. I fell victim to expensive camera, lack of skill problems. Money can’t buy you taste sometimes.

    Time to see if this busy man was able...

    Neil On Meals :: Little Social, Mayfair, London | Neil On Meals

    For as long as I can remember, Saturdays throughout my childhood were dominated by football. Football training in the morning followed by watching one of the local teams (Nantwich Town or Crewe Alexandra) in the afternoon with my brother and old man. As I have matured into middle age (I’m 30 next year!!) football isn’t quite the all-encompassing entity that it once was at the weekend (although I do dust off the boots occasionally). Nevertheless, when my brother (who lives just outside London) offers me a ticket for the Arsenal, I can’t say no.

    Now a match day usually involves eating anything to line the stomach...
