SquareMeal Review of Bossa

Bronze Award

The first word that springs to mind when walking into Bossa is quality. From the stylish decor to the attentive service as soon as you step inside, it’s clear that everything here has been carefully considered - and immaculately executed.

Each dish arrives perfectly presented, and with a view of the kitchen from our seat at the chef's table, we can clearly see the concentration and passion that goes into each one. Creativity and skill shine through on every plate, from the ultra light steak tartare doused in fresh truffle, to the tapioca tacos with bone marrow and pickled onion. The scallops in tucupi sauce are particularly noteworthy, which are soft, sweet, caramelised and submerged in an earthy sauce.

Being a Brazillian restaurant, it would be rude not to order the seafood moqueca, and it comes as a picture-perfect plate of octopus, mussels, squid and prawn in a fluorescent orange bisque. The bisque provides a delicate flavour that compliments, but never overpowers, the seafood, and is served alongside rice and banana farofa to provide some texture. But our favourite is the staggeringly good lamb with aubergine and creamy borlotti beans. The lamb is flawlessly cooked, and releases just enough juice to filter through to the aubergine underneath, providing a real punch of flavour.

For dessert, we opt for a traditional egg and coconut custard that, while tasty, is eye-wateringly sweet and not for the faint hearted.

A first-rate sommelier is on hand to talk us through the list of wines, of which there are plenty of good ones to choose from. Sourced from producers across the world, you're sure to find something you like, but we can personally vouch for the Alexandre Bain 2019 Pierre Precieuse.

About

Bossa is a modern Brazilian restaurant in central London, serving smart, elevated Brazilian dishes and an extensive wine list in a luxurious dining room on Vere Street. Sitting in between Bond Street and Oxford Circus stations, Bossa is easy to get to from anywhere in London, making it perfect territory for catch-ups and celebration dinners. 

Inside the restaurant is slick and sophisticated, illuminated by downturned spotlights. Seating is made up of comfy banquettes and sleek armchairs, and a huge open kitchen runs all the way along one side of the restaurant, giving guests an up-close-and-personal view of the cooking. 

Bossa serves lunch and dinner, with a set menu available at lunch and an a la carte menu available at dinner. The latter is a traditional starter, main and dessert format (or beginning, middle and end as it is on the menu). Dishes feature classic Brazilian ingredients and are often riffs on traditional Brazilian dishes, but the cooking is more contemporary and luxurious. Among the starters you'll find dishes like mussel escabeche with carrot juice, parsley oil and toasted bread, oysters with aromatic pepper vinaigrette and pickled green apple, and a beef tartare with shiitake confit, dry yeast and truffle. The mains feature an elevated take on a Brazilian feijoada, with crackling pork belly, swiss chard and black garlic, and a seafood moqueca. 

Bossa also specialises in wines and carries an extensive wine list - head sommelier Lais Aoki is widely acclaimed as one of the best sommeliers in Brazil, and she heads up the wine selection at Bossa. The drinks list also shows off a selection of cachaca - a typical Brazilian cane spirit.
