Review: Bob Bob Ricard

Since Bob Bob Ricard opened up in Carnaby Street I have been jealous of all the people who keep posting pictures of themselves pressing the iconic 'Press for Champagne' button - but last weekend this all changed and I became one of THOSE people, feel free to be jealous. Its not just the fact there is a button to press for champagne although that is the best thing I have heard since sliced bread! It's that there is a dress code you have to dress slightly elegantly, making a meal seem a little bit more special. As it was a Sunday I was excited to try out their take on a Sunday Roast better than the same pub lunch you get where the roasties are never cooked. 

Before I go into the review I should tell you that while I was there, it was such a special place that someone proposed. It was very romantic around100 red roses were delivered to the table and then the guy got down on one knee. I was very close to tears and then Adam decided to start off clapping until everyone in the restaurant was; from this everyone in the restaurant received a glass of champagne from the couple which was so lovely.

Right, now that is off my chest let's get back to food and Bob Bob Ricard, the restaurant is beautiful with a red and blue colour theme taking inspiration from the Orient Express and adorned with gold detailing.  Elegance was oozing from every corner, with thought going into the tiny details such as individual booths for diners and a "Press for Champagne" button at every booth. You will not be surprised to hear that Bob Bob Ricard is famous for serving more champagne than tap water! 

To Begin



To start it was essential to start with what has made Bob Bob Ricard famous: Rose Champagne and some sourdough bread.

Starter 


I would not normally go for a starter for Sunday lunch but the food just sounded incredible so it was a great excuse to eat more and try some more items on the menu. So Adam and I shared Wafer-Thin Beetroot & Goat's. Cheese Salad which was light as air and A Russian inspired dish of Lobster, Crab & Shrimp Pelmeni. This is traditional dumplings with Salmon Roe which looked similar to caviar, both starters were exquisite.

Main Dish


I am not going to lie, this dish was incredible and the 16oz corn-fed Arkansas USDA Prime Black Angus which is so good, it's presented on its own on a wooden board taking centre stage. You also get beef dripping roast potatoes, honey and thyme glazed carrots and parsnips, caramelised onion, Yorkshire puds and creamed horseradish with lavish truffle gravy. It literally tastes amazing. It is a bit on the pricey side at £29.50 but can you put a price on love?

Dessert


By dessert we were extremely full but I had heard through the grapevine amazing things about the Bob Bob Ricard Signature Chocolate Glory...what was this??? It sounded amazing and Chocolate is my best friend. The dessert lived up to expectations with chocolate Jiveara mousse, chocolate brownie, berries, passion fruit & orange jelly. This is a very rich and flavourful dessert and a spectacle with hot chocolate being poured over the dome to showcase what's inside.
