SquareMeal Review of Boisdale of Bishopsgate

1

"GOOD"

“Unapologetically old school”, and a welcome alternative to the chains hereabouts, the City branch of Boisdale might be mistaken for a gregarious gentleman’s club with its deep-red walls, leather seats, dedicated cigar list and assorted Caledonian memorabilia. That said, it’s far from pretentious, with friendly service and a menu of hearty Scottish fare keeping things relaxed. You might kick off with a plate of Highland venison and wild boar terrine with pistachios, pickles and toasted sourdough, before tackling roast Blackface haggis with mash and bashed neeps, some grass-fed, dry-aged Aberdeenshire beef or pan-fried fillet of Orkney salmon with braised violet artichokes, wild mushrooms and chervil. After that, how about a dark Valrhona chocolate parfait and peach jelly? With its fondness for live jazz and its show-stealing whisky selection, Boisdale oozes dressed-down masculinity, but it’s also “perfect for a girly lunch”, according to one fan.

Grana Padano

Grana Padano has become the world’s best-selling PDO cheese and one of the most loved products in Italy. It has been made with the same passion for almost 1,000 years in the heart of the Po River Valley in Northern Italy using only local milk, and aged from nine to over 20 months. What’s more, 30g of Grana Padano PDO contains the same nutritional value as approximately one pint of milk and it is lactose free due to its long ageing and production process. Real Grana Padano cheese can be recognised by the small diamond lozenges on its rind. So always check there is some rind on the piece you are buying.

If you can manage to find the place down a little alley off Bishopsgate opposite Liverpool St Station, then you're in for treat as you step back into tartan time. Boisdale is unapologetically old school from the interiors to the menu. Scottish staples are all there from the haggis to the smoked salmon, the venison to the Aberdeen Angus steaks. n this occasion we were there for the grouse, roasted with all the trimmings. The did a superb job, and our simple starters of smoked Dunkeld Salmon, said and chicken liver pate were very good. The grouse were cooked to perfection, pink, but not bloody, and good tender young birds too. Service and delivery were very professional and in all it couldn't have gone better. The bill was big though, and at GBP35.00 a bird, not so surprising, however it must make Boisdale the top end of pricing for grouse in London. By the end of September the market price has come down considerably from August 12th at the butcher's door (circa nine quid), so they were slightly taking the Michael we thought. Including a large glass of Chablis, and a bottle of mid range Rioja, the bill came to GBP275.00

Following a previous visit to Boisdale for dinner with two girlfriends which had been very enjoyable to us all I thought I'd go again last night with another friend. Again, it was a pleasant experience, the food was superb, service second to none and the atmosphere was excellent. Before my first visit I was slightly concerned that the live piano music might be slightly disturbing but this is most definitely not the case, in fact, this contributes to the whole dining experience in a most agreeable way. The musician/s is/are exellent and provide a fantastic non- intrusive backdrop to the whole scenario. Will most certainly go again.
