SquareMeal Review of Blue Door Bistro

Casual and comfortable and barely an artefact’s throw from the British Museum, Blue Door Bistro has done a good job of disguising its status as a hotel restaurant – it feels more like a great independent eatery. Drop in for a bite in the light and airy room at lunchtime; crab cakes with celeriac rémoulade and chilli sauce, followed by a classic Caesar salad will probably suffice. Come the evening, supreme of guinea fowl wrapped in bacon with butternut-squash mash, a decent steak or prawn Stroganoff with basmati rice may be more the thing. The wine list matches the food well: plenty of variety, yet not too greedily priced, and a very generous selection available by the glass.

I picked this restaurant for the convenient location as I had a meeting nearby. I was extremely pleasantly surprised. The service was outstanding, friendly, helpful and professional, and the food was interesting and very well executed. My pea shoot and halloumi salad was sublime.
