The very name Living Room suggests a place where folks can kick back and feel right at home. Everybody is welcome at this smart-casual chain of urban bar/restaurants, judging by the overwhelming choice of drinks, sharing plates, ‘home comforts’ and nibbles on show. The all-encompassing ‘British fusion’ menu spans everything from duck eggs Benedict to sea bass sashimi, via MasterChef-style plates of Gressingham duck breast with pickled pear, buttered kale and duck-fat chips, pies, burgers and 28-day aged steaks for the blokes, dessert platters for the ladies who lunch, and club sandwiches for the shoppers. The Living Room also keeps its vast demographic happy with a stonking list of beverages that runs from B52 shots and a world tour of cocktails to liqueur coffees, bottles of Czech Krusovice beer and magnums of Laurent Perrier rosé. Resident pianists provide the entertainment in the evening.
