A Rupert Street Food Safari

Where the buzz of Soho meets Chinatown and the bright lights of Piccadilly and Leicester Square, enter your new favourite foodie destination, Rupert Street, for the best in independent and innovative restaurants.

 

 

The Palomar

Where better to start your Rupert Street safari than at award-winning restaurant The Palomar serving the food of modern-day Jerusalem. Take a seat at the bar and work your way through the menu which is split into sections ‘Rip & Dip’, Oceans & Rivers, Pasture & Courtyard, Field & Courtyard and Filed & Garden. You won’t go far wrong ordering one from each section alongside one or two of their playfully named cocktails. Our favourite is the Au revoir Shoshana.

     

Tapas Brindisa 

On the hunt for the finest Spanish cured meat, cheese and fish in Soho? Get to know Tapas Brindisa. Check out their champion Señorío de Montana sharing board featuring the best cured ‘ibérico de bellota’ pork if you don't believe us. Grab a seat at the counter, order a giant glass of Rioja and watch the theatre of the open kitchen, or sit by the window and watch the world go by over lunch.

 

     
 

Hovarda

For a taste of the Mediterranean by way of top-notch Turkish and Greek-inspired dishes, stop by Hovarda.  There's a focus on fresh seafood, so be sure to check out the 'Catch of the Day' or push the boat out with a whole lobster, a Blue Native Scotish Lobster to be precise. Alternatively, soak up the vibes and enjoy a cocktail or two at the first-floor bar while a regularly changing line-up of DJs provides the tunes. 

     

The Blue Posts

Brought to you by the team behind The Palomar, The Blue Posts is a recently revamped pub serving up a selection of independently brewed cask ales, craft beers and ciders alongside brilliant bar snacks. On the first floor, you’ll find ‘The Mulwray’ cocktail lounge and bar.

 

     
 

 

Xu

Taking inspiration from the original social clubs and luxury dining rooms of 1930’s Taipei, head to Xu and embark on a journey into Taiwanese culture and cuisine. From the food, cocktails and tea through to the interiors of rich wood panelling, marble bar, hand-painted murals and Mahjong Tables, we guarantee you won’t want to leave. Stuck for what to choose, we recommend the Mahjong Feasting menu at £65 per person to give you a taster of their stand-out dishes.

     

Evelyn's Table

Make your way downstairs to the cellar of The Blue Posts where you'll find Evelyn's Table, a slick and energetic eleven-seater counter (half of these can be booked, while the other half are reserved for walk-ins) overseen by Head Chef Nacho Pinilla formally of sister restaurant, The Barbary. For a successful visit, we recommend working your way through the daily-changing line-up of modern European dishes such as cuttlefish ragout, rock salt fillet of beef and bone marrow, polenta with artichokes, plus lots more, too.
