Dinner @ The New Tuttons

Tuttons in covent gardenre-opens its doors after multi-million pound makeover

I usually don't eat in Covent Garden unless I am taking one of the family out for a 'Tourist' meal, so I was excited to hear that Tuttons on Covent Garden Piazza, had re-opened  with a brand new look and an exciting English-accented menu to create somewhere Covent Garden can be proud of and not just a tourist pit stop.

The new menu draws its inspiration from traditional British ingredients such as pressed Sussex ham hock, Yorkshire black pudding, Shetland mussels and Kentish raspberry cheesecake.

So straight away I got on the bubbles (Nyetimber classic cuvée, West sussex 2007) after looking over an impressive array of wines from around the world I was surprised to see the Cuvée was produced in West Sussex it was light, fresh and a very good wine!

The Menu

In addition to Tuttons’ celebrated grill selection, including its 28-day hung steaks and popular Cote de Boeuf, some of the new dishes included:

(We had a taster plate and tried the four starters and the four deserts, I have starred my fave's. For my main meal I had the classic steak and chips with peppercorn sauce which you can see below - so tender and delicious!)

  • Lancashire roasted beets with goats cheese and beetroot mousse
  • Pressed Sussex ham hock with mustard piccalilli and soda bread*
  • Tuttons cured salmon, fennel, smoked caviar
  • Honey rolled beef carpaccio
  • Pan fried sea bass, linguini of vegetables with mussel, clam and saffron bouillabaisse
  • Wicks Manor braised belly of pork, caramelised Razor Russet apple with a warm puy lentil and red chard salad
  • Fillet steak (Rare!) with peppercorn sauce and matchstick chips
  • Rhubarb & custard tart with a ginger and vanilla Chantilly cream
  • Summer pudding trifle with seasonal berries and creamed custard*
  • Kentish raspberry cheesecake
  • Dark and white chocolate brownie

So Tuttons definitley gets a 5* star rating from us, with it's fresh, modern new look and fantastic new menu, T2G look forward to returning!

And after you have had a bite to eat you can head down below to Dirty Martini for a cocktail or two!
