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.
