Square Meal Review of Salon ?

Camped above Cannon & Cannon’s deli on Market Row, this new dining room is going down the ‘supperclub’ route – not surprising since the chef did time with the Young Turks before setting up here. Salon serves a fixed-price, four-course menu in cosy, plain-speaking surrounds, with seasonal British ingredients taking centre stage (coupled with provisions from the deli). Whet your whistle with a glass of rosehip fizz, before sampling razor clams with sobrasada, duck hearts with celeriac and lardo, and a dish of pheasant with cauliflower and pine nuts. After that, finish with quince syllabub or fascinating artisan cheeses (the ‘powerful’ English Gorgonzola has gone down a treat). Brunch and lunchtime ’deli’ menus are planned, while the drinks list favours ‘natural’ wines, London-brewed beers and fruit-infused spirits. ‘Delicious and excitingly novel food, served by friendly and obliging staff’, concluded one satisfied customer.

    Agent Restauranteur :: Salon Brixton – London SW9

    I don’t think there are many restaurants in London where I would happily sit, on my own, for 45 minutes, waiting for my date. I can now safely say that Salon Brixton is one of them……. This summer Salon Brixton is doing a series of one off collaborations. The usual 4 course menu is being revamped and extended to 7 courses, using the same seasonal British produce and imaginative cooking techniques. I bagged myself two tickets to Salon x Niall Davidson and thought I would treat my father to the delights of Brixton. Unfortunately Heathrow chaos caused an unavoidable delay, so I found myself sitting in this tiny attic restaurant listening to buzzy beats coming from the open kitchen’s laptop speakers, clatters from the kitchen and welcoming chit chat from the staff, for close to an hour. And I felt entirely an ease...

  2. The dining room is minimal and quite bare, but the hospitality of the chefs/front of house was enough to warm up any room up. As it was a Tuesday night when I visited, the team behind Salon were trialling a nightly weekday dinner (as opposed to just Thursday to Saturday), with just two people manning the dining room. Every night, Salon offers...
