SquareMeal Review of Indigo at One Aldwych

1

"GOOD"

Chef Dominic Teague has masterminded a quiet revolution at One Aldwych’s smart mezzanine restaurant, which now offers a gluten- and dairy-free menu (though dishes aren’t prepared in a gluten-free kitchen). Ingredients such as almond milk feature alongside native meats and fish on a British menu with international flourishes. Warm buckwheat and samphire bread showcased the kitchen’s credentials, followed by a well-executed starter of partridge breast, prettily presented in a swirl of cauliflower purée with a savoury jus and fruity blackberries. Next, Brixham monkfish shone brightly in a fragrant Thai-style broth of lemongrass, coriander and coconut milk, though gluten-free gnocchi were rather dry in their autumnal melee of roast butternut squash and pumpkin oil. Nevertheless, accomplished desserts (a forte) finished the meal on a high. Friendly staff offer prompt service in the comfortable space overlooking the buzzy Lobby Bar below. A good-value set menu (£22/£27 for two/three courses) is another plus.

We had dinner for 2 at 6pm on a Friday evening. On the balcony area it was modestly noisy, arising from the bar below, but never enough to preclude conversation. 2 2-course meals from a fair selection, plus 2 carafes of Merlot and then a Chenin Blanc came to £89 before service charge. Service was attentive and efficient, and we weren't rushed off our feet to make the theatre. All in all, beautiful ( a bit like the musical!).

I was fortunate to be treated to breakfast here this morning. The restaurant overlooks the lobby/bar area and is very light and airy, with comfy armchairs to relax in. The service was impeccable, with emphasis on explaining their gluten and dairy free options (which I didn't have, but was told by my companion that they are amazing, particularly the muffins and chocolate mousse). I had a perfectly cooked cheese omelette with a side of excellent streaky bacon and a cappuccino, which has certainly set me up for the day. A very nice calm oasis in the middle of bustling Covent Garden/Aldwych.

We visited Indigo to sample the much hyped Charlie and the Chocolate Factory afternoon tea. Things started well. We were greeted and shown to our table by a friendly waiter and offered drinks. All the places are set out beautifully, each with it's own sort of cartoon place mat of different Charlie and the Chocolate Factory characters. The food itself was very nice but the experience was let down by the service. There seemed to be plenty of staff but never anyone free or visible when you needed anything. Drinks were slow in arriving and we waited a long time for our bill, in the end having to go up to the greeter and request it for a third time. Furthermore, there seemed to be very rigid timings. The savouries were brought straight away when we arrived but then all the sweet courses for each table arrived at once and we had to wait over half an hour in between the savouries and sweets. You just can't operate like that, not every table will want the second course at the same time. That said, the savouries were excellent and the sweets and scones perfect for anyone with a serious sweet tooth.
