SquareMeal Review of Benugo Bar & Kitchen at BFI Southbank

The distinctive Benugo look comes into its own at this flagship venue housed within the British Film Institute (BFI), a funky space of sharp design & vibrant colour. The chilled-out lounge/restaurant near the entrance offers low-slung couches & cushions of carefully mismatched fabrics (a great perch during the day), while the kitchen deals in good-value set lunches as well as an extensive carte, both tooting the modern British horn: expect the likes of fresh pea & Cashel Blue risotto, smoked haddock with colcannon & poached egg, or rump of lamb with grilled leek & caper sauce, followed by gooseberry fool or lemon meringue pie. Elsewhere, there are steak sandwiches & ‘pints’ of mini sausage rolls for idle nibbling. A bopping venue for cinephiles & South Bank trendies alike.

The best thing about this pre-theatre meal was the friendly staff! the food came quickly but some dishes were underflavoured (the soup) and others over salted (the salmon). I felt that the kitchen must have been in as much of a hurry as those diners going to the theatre as the lamb in the main course was cold whilst the vegetables around it very hot... it was a shame as it was evident that some thought had gone into the combinations of ingredients.

We go to this lovely restaurant often as we use the BFI a lot. Don't what they have done but last night we had cheese and it was 20g with a few biscuits on a pretty coaster for the exorbitant price of £2.50. I did comment and the catering manager was excellent as he realised we were making constructive criticism. Hope they rethink the cheese plate.
