SquareMeal Review of
Gaucho Charlotte Street
Set among concrete office blocks on the ‘wrong’ end of Charlotte Street, the Bloomsbury outpost of the Gaucho chain is a buzzy medialand haunt par excellence. The unassuming ground-floor lobby
belies the ‘wow’ factor of the dining room below: descend into a cavernous, double-height space decked out in trademark black & white, with cowhide seating & pendulous light fittings
casting a low, warm glow over diners, while ultra-attentive staff are keen to describe & show off the available cuts, from melt-in-the mouth lomo (fillet) to traditional churrascaria (a
marinated spiral cut). Start with something Latin (a tangy ceviche made with thumb-sized queenie scallops or light crab & chilli salad with soft-boiled quail’s egg), & round off with sweet,
creamy dulche de leche flan. Pre- or post-prandial cocktails can be sipped in the mezzanine cocktail bar.
