Having spent a hot afternoon sunbathing, people watching and snoozing in Hyde Park, my wife and I were in need of some libation. Bar Boulud at the Mandarin Oriental seemed the obvious choice.
When in Singapore, we have visited Daniel Boulud’s ‘Bistro Moderne’ (here) on a number of occasions but have not got around to enjoying a full meal at the Knightsbridge outlet – this time, not wanting to spoil our evening meal, we managed to squeeze in a few small bar snacks.
Tuna Tartare – yellowfin tuna, wasabi, cucumber, wonton and preserved lemon.
Caviar & Blinis – Cornish salted caviar (harvested from British reared Sturgeon), blinis, crème fraiche and lemon zest.
A lovely bar with friendly service – we definitely plan to go back for a full meal next time we are in London.
