Hixter Bankside 1

Squaremeal Review of Hixter Bankside ?

Mark Hix’s original Hixter in the City didn't last long, but this second branch seems to have hit its stride in time to survive the difficult first two years. Occupying a former metal box factory near the Tate Modern, it’s an unashamedly cool urban destination complete with Tracey Emin neon sculptures, girders, pendant lights and bare brick walls. Like its stablemate Tramshed in Shoreditch, the menu is all about chicken and beef: roast barn-reared chooks arrive at the table perched upright with stuffing and chips on the side, while the Glenarm carcases (aged in Himalayan salt) yield all manner of ‘mighty-marbled’ steaks. To start, try buttermilk-fried monkfish cheeks or woodland mushrooms on toast, and save room for a helping of ‘credit crunch ice cream’. The “great bar” is as much of a draw as the dining room, though it's not as hip and frenetic as the Soho original – some might see that as an advantage, of course.

It’s all about the steak……………… (and chicken)

Read Nuzy Sayani’s review of Hixter Bankside Nestled behind Tate Modern is Mark Hix’s steak and chicken restaurant. Whilst the South Bank is a magnet for culture, it has taken a while for the restaurant scene to catch up making the south side of the river a vibrant and essential part of London. I visited Hixter on a Thursday evening and the former metal factory was busy but not overly crowded. The décor reflects its industrial past with exposed brick work and metal but is warmed up by...

Chicken and Beef, what's not to like?

Jan 2015

Having eaten at Tramshed in Spitalfields, I knew pretty much what to expect 2nd time around and it certainly didn't disappoint. We went to this branch because we had been to an exhibition at the Tate Modern and it was a short walk (into a pretty dead area on the weekend, not sure if it is more lively during the week). There were a few groups having Sunday brunch but not the restaurant was not very busy. We all started with a Twitter and Bisted cocktail, grapefruit mixed with Campari and...

We went to Hixter Bankside on its second evening. It’s located near Union Street Café, though proved to be a little hard to find. Having eventually located it the vibe is rather like its near neighbour, in that they are both in old industrial buildings, have decent amounts of open space, cool staff etc. Union Street is a bit more distressed industrial chic, Hixter a bit more wannabe art gallery, but both are perfectly acceptable. Apparently, though clearly I can’t confirm this, there is also some...

    Luxury Columnist :: Hungry for Hixter - Mark Hix comes to Bankside

    Excited by the news that Mark Hix had opened up an outpost in Bankside, we ventured out on a stormy Sunday when the streets were deserted. We’re big fans of Tramshed in Shoreditch, which also has his legendary chicken and chips on the menu. Located in an old metal box factory, we couldn’t miss the neon Hixter sign.

    We were warmly greeted and taken through the ground floor bar to the airy restaurant. The torrential rain seemed to have put off fellow diners as it was fairly empty at first. I’m told that it gets really busy on Saturdays, and no doubt it’s only a matter of time until it’s on every foodie’s radar!...
