Squaremeal Review of Gail's Kitchen ?

Following the success of its artisan bakery and café chain, Gail’s has launched its first restaurant proper – an all-day venue done out in soft grey tones, serving eclectic snacks and small plates as well as its much-vaunted breads and pastries. Located alongside the reception area of Bloomsbury’s myhotel, it’s not only a handy drop-in for guests but is also pitched at the local passing trade, with a dozen barstools overlooking the open kitchen. Bread naturally underpins much of the menu, from Taleggio and truffle-cream toasties to satisfyingly rich smoked mackerel rillettes served with wafer-thin slices of toasted rye, but also expect meatier dishes such as slow-cooked oxtail with baked ratte potato. Prices are a touch high, but don’t leave without trying the show-stealing desserts – gooey chocolate-chip cookies straight from the oven, for example. There’s a branch of Gail’s Bakery next door.

The food was delicious. We had a good range, but even the pizza was divine. I also tried to work out what...

    LUNCHING ABOVE OUR WEIGHT :: A Semi-Thwarted Lunch at Gail's Kitchen: Review | Lunching Above Our Weight

    We met up in our lunch hour to partake of this meal. It’s naïve and foolish to believe you can fit a proper meal in an hour, especially when getting to the restaurant requires literally minutes of power walking. We are serial worriers and aren’t the types to believe that none of our colleagues would notice if we were slightly liberal with the prescribed 60 minutes (to be honest, in Chris’s case he could have taken the whole afternoon because we doubt anyone has noticed he even works there). Still, we were keen to return on time and were therefore on edge. This was not helped by the blazing sun streaming through the...
