Food: Cornish Grill at Redhook

Sunday, November 27, 2011

It's hard to beat a Sunday morning spent lazily working through the supplements while polishing off a couple of reviving Bloody Marys, especially if that is then followed by a late (and very lengthy) lunch.

Redhook, one of the restaurants owned by the Rushmore group, the people behind Milk and Honey in Soho and New York, have teamed up with Cornwall in your Kitchen, a supplier of top-quality meat and fish to London restaurants, to offer exactly that experience one Sunday a month. A couple of chefs from big-name restaurants, a four-course fixed menu of fantastic seafood and meat, and an invitation to show up early and enjoy the selection of newspapers and the make-your-owen bloody mary buffet? That's my idea of a Sunday well-spent.

Redhook follows the Rushmore Group recipe for success of creating a quirky but relaxed and comfortable environment, paying proper attention to making really good food and cocktails, and filling the place with friendly, knowledgable staff. It's such a simple formula, but so often ignored by other, much better-known bars and restaurants.
