bond & brook

had the most wonderful saturday yesterday with the lovely tash of the house of scarlet, who invited me to go and gorge on food with her at the delightful bond & brook (located on the second floor at fenwick in mayfair). everything about it really was really quite beautiful. i got a wee bit obsessed with the menu (visually - layout and that), but the food was the winner of it all. break down of our consumption is as follows - we had champagne to start (obvs), hummus and flatbread to nibble on (amaze), followed by four of their larger-canapes pick'n'mix style tapas (which included venison, pea & ham quiche, lobster and hallouimi - again, amaze), for our mains tash had steak and i had cod (we were both very satisfied) and because if there is a scone on the menu, i have to have it, we nibbled on scones (with cocktails - no need for tea today) and rubbed our food bellies most contently. the atmosphere was not stuffy, a little warm (i got rosy cheeks - possibly/definitely the alcohol) but a wonderful place to escape oxford street/mayfair shopping. looking forward to returning to try out their afternoon tea in all its glory.
