SquareMeal Review of
Storming its way onto the Chelsea scene, this former boozer has been transformed into a “swish, Sloane-popular behemoth” comprising an all-day restaurant, cocktail bar and lounge, plus a huge number of terraced tables – all courtesy of the team behind nearby hotspot Boujis. Three floors of distressed-chic interiors are a mishmash of carefully sourced architectural salvage, so start things off with a fruity Cherry Blossom Bellini amid the pop of Prosecco corks in the upstairs bar. The kitchen’s take on Italian inspired food is in tune with the times, opening with the likes of beef carpaccio, truffle, frisee, fava beans, pecorino or sea bass, miso, baby spinach, fennel, pomodori secchi, imaginatively topped pizzas, rib-eye tagliata, 28 day aged, rocket, pecorino or dorset cab linguine with salsa verde, fava beans. Afterwards, lucky guests might even be allowed into The Chelsea Prayer Room – Goat’s secret 1920s speakeasy.
