BOB BOB RICARD
Nestled away in Soho is the most incredibly luxuriously decorated restaurant which makes you feel as though you've just stepped back in time to the 1920's. With booths reminiscent of glamorous train carriages, a luxurious English and Russian menu and waiters dressed in the most fabulous marshmallow pink waistcoats, Bob Bob Ricard is much more than your everyday lunch venue. The gimmick which attracts most people? The 'press for champagne' button of which there are two situated at every booth. My lunch date got extremely excited by this and pushed the button as soon as i pointed it out to him. Within a swift millisecond a waiter appeared and asked which champagne we would like... service at it's best! I had the lobster tail burger with fries whilst others plumped for the salmon tartar and venison burger. All of them were yummy but it was the desserts that stole the show. We went for salted caramel ice cream with brownie crumbs - divine, a trio of creme brulee's - diviner and the Chocolate surprise - beyond divination! A gold chocolate sphere which has hot chocolate sauce poured over it to make it melt and open up in the form of a flower to reveal brownie, cookie and ice cream inside. The theater of it was great and the dessert itself was delicious. If you fancy a visit go for this dessert if for nothing else!
