SquareMeal Review of
Heliot at The Hippodrome
What started life as the West End’s legendary Hippodrome before going through several seedier incarnations was lavishly refitted to the tune of £40m in 2012 and re-launched as a blingy cabaret and
casino. The latter’s shiny, 3D wall coverings and floors strewn with pennies evoke a ‘tacky Las Vegas charm’, but bare, oversized light bulbs, reclaimed pulleys and original metal girders give its
US steakhouse restaurant a more relaxed, ‘backstage’ feel. Check out the gambling action on the floor below while perusing a comprehensive menu that scores at the calorific, comfort-food end of the
spectrum – think ‘moreish’ mac ‘n’ cheese with poached duck egg and truffle shavings or ‘succulent’ bone-in beef rib with triple-cooked chips; full-on desserts such as knickerbocker glory and giant
strawberry pavlova also tempt. Service is ‘faultless’, while a ‘wedding-disco soundtrack’ keeps the mood light.
