This was my third visit to Bar Boulud – each time ive been, ive been for lunch and the food has always been excellent. Its an extremely buzzy place – completely full each time we have been and much better than anywhere else in Knightsbridge when you just want a place to rest your feet after a day of shopping (though the Park Terrace is also excellent and in the same hotel). Seatingwise – Id actually recommend the seats by the kitchen if you are stopping off for a quick bite – otherwise its always nice sitting near the front. However, it seems to be only for bigger groups unfortunately.
Foodwise – its a good selection of meat/charcuterie – like a slightly posher American diner. They do offer a basket of fresh bread which does fill up quite a bit however the sausages are very lovely and worth trying at least once. Its the salads that accompany them and make them that little more special. For the main, i dont think anything betters the famous Piggie Burgers – perfectly cooked to your requirements – and just the right portion to fill. I couldnt imagine having a full on hefty main in this place – its famous for the burgers so that's what i always have. Puddings are also various twists on cakes or ice cream desserts but depends really if you have the room! We never do…though they are lovely enough.
My bill for a 2 piggy burgers was a hefty £30 so quite pricey but was definitely a cut above your normal burgers/lunches out. This is not meant in a condescending way but its quite like the Knightsbridge version of GBK but well worth the money – i cant see this losing any of its popularity in the near future and ill definitely be returning.
