Boopshi's 1

Squaremeal Review of Boopshi's ?

Schnitzels and spritz are the twin selling points at this family-owned restaurant, in the heart of Fitzrovia. Dreamed up by brothers Ed and Ben Robson, the new eatery is built around recipes handed down to the two guys by their Austrian grandparents – who apparently called each other ‘boopshi’ as a term of endearment. Food-wise, the menu has a strong Austrian and central European slant with bratwurst sausages, ox tongue, spätzle and apple strudel all featuring alongside the signature schnitzels – prepared using top-grade rose veal, free-range chicken or rare-breed pork. To drink, expect Viennese beers, house martinis made with Kümmel instead of vermouth and, of course, the spritzs themselves: the no. 5 version will mix London Dry gin, apricot purée, homemade orange and lemon sherbet with Prosecco (also served on tap).

“Schnitzel and spritz” says the Boopshi tagline, and that's exactly what you'll get. Simple as. I love it and it's gone straight into my hallowed Tried And Tested list. This may have something to do with the second element: the heavenly spritz which is, in my opinion, the best in London. Sharp and sweet at the same time (is the humble OJ a secret ingredient?) and glugging around in huge ice-ridden goblets. I have to admit I have come to the spritz party in London a little late but I spent a year...

Solid modern Austrian effort

by   platinum reviewer (125)

You really wish the young team at Boopshi's well. There are still a few points to fine-tune on the culinary front, but the dishes which are already perfect really score very highly. It's a simple modern space and they offer very classic Austrian dishes at a very enticing price/value ratio: it feels a bit special, with a minimalist design that any diner could be forgiven for mistaking for it for Scandinavian – if you are either looking for a mock chalet or for a Viennese grand café, this is not what...

Most people would struggle to identify many notable things about Austria, a country in central Europe with a population around the size of London whose most famous export is arguably Arnold Schwarzenegger. Against this background, onto the already-crowded London dining scene comes Boopshi’s, billed as a ‘Schintzel and Sprtiz’ experience. For the non-German speaking this simply means veal in breadcrumbs accompanied with sparkling wine – think of it perhaps as a continental version of the hot dogs...

    Review of Blacklock, Soho :: Boopshi's, Schnitzel & Spritz

    The other weekend I hung out with my brother and we spent the day over in the west end. We lived in the area for a few years when we were both very little and the area around Charlotte Street holds some great memories for us. Somewhere we hadn’t tried before was Boopshi’s. My brother and I love Austrian influenced food so the simple menu of schnitzel’s and spritz’s was right up our street!

    Like I said, the menu is lovely and simple (I much prefer this to a menu with 30 items on and no idea where to start). There is a choice of three types of schnitzel: rose veal, chicken and pork and a handful of other plates...

    Passport and Toothbrush: :: Passport and Toothbrush: Austrian Food at Boopshi's

    In my London Eats World blog series, I'm eating my way around the world without leaving London and this week I'm having Austrian food at Boopshi's.
    There are a couple of options for Austrian food in London, but instead of having dinner at the slightly tacky Tiroler Hut in Westbourne Grove, I opted for the classier Boopshi's in Fitzrovia.

    Samphire and Salsify :: Boopshi's, Fitzrovia | Samphire and Salsify

    Boopshi’s (I’m still not sure how you pronounce it) is a charming little restaurant just off Tottenham Court Road that specialises in schnitzels and spritz. The wiener schnitzel at The Delaunay is the best I’ve ever had, so I was excited to see how good these ones were.

    It’s a bright and airy space with long shared tables and old-fashioned school chairs to perch on. Service certainly wasn’t rude, far from it, but it lacked a certain warmth and chattiness that a place like this seemed crying out for...
