When it comes to celebrating birthdays, I’m a low key kind of girl! I don’t do clubbing but I will definitely be up for languishing in good eateries with stylish interiors. One restaurant that really fit the bill for me is Bob Bob Ricard in London.
Bob Bob Ricard
Bob Bob Ricard is a Russian and British fusion restaurant located just off Carnaby Street. I’ve literally walked past it a million times and never even noticed it was there. There is nothing extremely flashy about the exterior, but as soon as you enter the restaurant, it’s like you’ve traveled through a passage of time.
Stumbling into the plush surroundings of a 1920s train like carriage, each table is cornered off by booth style seatings and finished off with gold details.
I have to confess, despite not being a drinker, the main reason I picked Bob Bob Richard as my site of celebration was because of this ‘press for champagne’ button here.
The food prices at Bob Bob Ricard are at first glance, quite pricey. However, there is a range of prices to suit most budgets! I would say it starts from £18 and up.
Since we’re celebrating, for starters we opted for these lobster stuffed dumpling. They look incredibly Chinese!
I really love a good fish pie so I ordered that for my mains. It came out looking like a tortoise shell. If you look even closer you can see the restaurant name on top of the shell!
Breaking through the crispy thin pastry revealed the fish pie! It was surprisingly more soupy that the mash I was expecting. It was perfect.
But the best bit of the meal at Bob Bob Richard was the dessert.
I’ve never had an Easton Mess before but this was absolutely delicious.
Anyone in their right mind would order two desserts and then share with your friend! So that’s what I did. Our second choice was a brownie inside a golden chocolate shell.
As expected with fine dining, the portions look small however I was definitely feeling very full and satisfied at the end of it. If you’re looking for something unique with beautiful interiors and good food, Bob Bob Ricard is a really perfect place!
