Bob Bob Ricard

Posted in Restaurants & Bars

Bob Bob Ricard is one of my absolute favourite places to dine in London.  Where do I even begin?  When you walk through the door it is like stepping into the glamorous and elegant world of 1950’s Mad Men.  All I want to utter is “Hello dahhhlings…. mommy’s home.”  The menu boasts a variety of options at a range of price points.  The food is tasty, some dishes more memorable than others, but they are all helped by the surrounding decor.  They have caviar, Russian vodka, afternoon tea, an express lunch, a pre-theatre menu, and best of all…. a champagne button. Yes, an actual button that when pressed delivers champagne to your table (for a price).  This is something I need installed by my bedside table.  Then all I would need is a little monkey (wearing a hot pink waistcoat of course…. and matching hat) that I could train to fetch the chilled bottle and pop the cork but I digress….  If you are in town visiting go here, if you live here add this place to the rotation. It is divine indulgence.  It is the perfect setting for any fabulous occasion, or just going to dine will be occasion enough.
