A classic brasserie located on the second floor of the Barbican, Barbican Brasserie by Searcys is a luxe dining spot with a food menu designed to celebrate British and European classics, alongside some unique and fresh twists.
Led by Head Chef Clifton D’Souza, the menu offered up at Barbican Brasserie by Searcys features a choice between a two-course meal at £26, or three courses at £31 (you can also opt for just one course, if you’re looking for something quick). When it comes to choosing the dishes that will make up your meal, there are plenty of freshly made plates with seasonal ingredients to choose from. Starters include some classics, like burrata, adorned with pumpkin, pomegranate seeds, and fig leaf oil. Fusing the traditional with modern twists continues across the rest of the menu, with other starters like pan-seared scallops making an appearance, accompanied by beetroot, pickled onions, and tapioca crisp.
There is a rich variety of main courses to peruse – again, classics with exciting additions. You can choose from the likes of nduja stuffed chicken roulade with leek, borlotti beans, and marsala, or a rib eye steak with sundried tomato puree, eryngii mushrooms, and pecorino.
If you’re the type to opt for sweet rather than savoury, your dessert will be an indulgent treat. There’s a warm baked cheesecake with cherry ice-cream, and an intriguing dark chocolate and matcha cannoli, with poached blackberry.
Barbican Brasserie by Searcys' menu has something for those who prefer the more traditional, as well as those seeking to try exciting new flavour profiles and combinations.
Since the Barbican Brasserie is owned by Searcys, you’re not short on luxurious drink choices to accompany your meal either. You’ll find Searcys’ Champagne on offer, as well as a beautiful selection of wines. Insider tip: a particularly popular drink at Barbican Brasserie by Searcys is its Negroni, so you might like to give that a try if you’re looking to find a new signature drink.
