A Causal Fine-Dining Concept: Bar Bleu in Soho is one of the latest additions to the city’s gastronomic scene, serving seafood dishes from France and other countries with a selection of champagne to pair.
Look & Feel: Sitting in the hub where different cultures collide, the newly opened restaurant hides between the old buildings on Staunton Street where you would also find cuisines from different parts of the world. The seafood and champagne bar employs a nautical palette in its interior that echos the origin of the foods that it puts on your table.
On The Menu: Presenting its food with a casual French flair, Bar Bleu pampers your tastebuds with a three-course menu of your selection of seafood dishes using catches from across the world.
Start your meal with the bar’s Signature Oysters. Using No. 2 Fine Claire oysters, the dish is paired with cucumber and watermelon to complement the sweetness that the less fleshy oyster is known for. Diners are also open to the options of Japanese mackerel, sardines and charred octopus if they are feeling a bit rebellious.
Once guests have their appetite open for more dishes, this is the time to dig into a selection of warm, still seafood-oriented mains. Feed yourself with Norweigian salmon, black cod, scallop or king prawn if you wish to get something meaty for the meal. Carbs-lovers can also choose from carabinero risotto, prawn tagliatelle and a fish burger depending on the supper you are getting in the day.
Finish off the meal with the traditional French dessert, madeleines. The petite shell-shaped sponge cake is served with a side of lemon crème that cleanses your palette with a refreshing citrusy aftertaste.
Great For: Summer get-togethers, pescatarian meals.
FYI: Secure a booking in the cozy restaurant if you are visiting with a large group.
