SquareMeal Review of Silk & Grain (bar)

Launched in 2014, Silk & Grain jumped on a long-running London bandwagon, offering bottle-conditioned and barrel-aged cocktails. Sitting by lofty windows in the lively ground-floor bar (there’s dining on the mezzanine), you could visibly age in the time it takes to digest the menu’s diagrams and prattle about that process. What to order are proficient, whimsically garnished, aged takes on the classics – Hanky Panky, Mary Pickford and a Metal (Ketel 1 vodka) Martini, for instance – along with original mixes such as Carney’s Brew (bourbon, house-made ginger syrup, lemon, Innis & Gunn oak-aged beer). To eat, try feta-stuffed peppers, black pudding Scotched quail’s eggs, or crispy pig’s ears: ideal with a verbosely described cocktail of ‘Tequila and our very own leather infusion, shaken with mint, agave, absinthe and bitters before being crowned with bubbly in a goblet fit for a queen!’
