Santo Remedio have been popping up around town recently in conjunction with their Kickstarter campaign to launch a new restaurant. Last week saw this favourite Mexican take over the grills at Pitt Cue. The ribs were given a chilli makeover and the starters featured Santo Remedio staples such as scallop agua chile (pictured).
After a particularly disappointing trip to the Theatre with Lazy Susan, The Dumbwaiter needed to get the night back on track. Thankfully, he had a plan up his sleeve – The Jugged Hare, one of London’s finest gastropubs. Usually a preferred destination for Sunday Roast, The Dumbwaiter used the opportunity to explore the rest of the menu. Having decided to share a suckling pig with Susan, with a Haggis Scotch egg to start, The Dumbwaiter was pleasantly surprised to receive another on the house – Och aye!
The Dumbwaiter took advantage of the sun making an appearance on Wednesday afternoon and took to the rooftop at The Ned for lunch. Over a glass of rosé with views of St Pauls, The Dumbwaiter enjoyed a lunch of crudités, chargrilled squid and a chopped salad.
108 Garage opened on Goldbourne Road to much fanfare and whispers of mafia connections. It still feels like a place to be seen and the food lives up to the hype. Tomatoes with goats cheese and caviar (pictured) was a standout dish.
St James’s Market is still finding its feet but The Dumbwaiter is a big fan of Aquavit, the New York import. The Brudnizki designed room is a looker and was brimming with business folk on working lunches. The Dumbwaiter enjoyed a Scandi lunch of herrings followed by a whole sea trout.
