SquareMeal Review of
Bar Boulud at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park
Clever design, top-drawer Franco/US brasserie food, on-the-ball service and a formidable wine list have made the Mandarin Oriental’s casual restaurant a must for any person-about-town’s little black book. Bar Boulud’s well-dressed cosmopolitan crowd “love the buzz” and know that the menu will deliver exactly what they’re after. That means top-grade USDA steaks and arguably the finest burgers in town (try the ‘piggy’ – a beef patty with BBQ pork, jalapeño mayo, cabbage and a Cheddar bun), plus boards of fabulous charcuterie ‘maison’ for the hardened carnivores, alongside various smart salads and assorted French classics ranging from oeufs meurette and rillons croustillants (crispy pork belly with Dijon mustard) to moules provençale, coq au vin and herb-crusted lamb en croûte with spinach purée, green beans and mint jus. After that, there are posh puds such as gâteau basque or passion fruit ‘royal’, while perfect cheeses please the rest. If you can drag yourself away from generous pourings of house Champagne, the G&T list is worth investigating.
