A posh breakfast withone of the coolest women I know? Don’t mind if I do! Lasca suggested breakfast at the Dean Street Townhouse, which I had never heard of. I’m so out of touch with London, it’s embarrassing! Upon further research, I discovered that this Soho establishment is part of the Soho House Group. I used to frequent Soho House in New York City way back when I called it “home” as a friend was a member, and I rather liked it. Anyhow, the Dean Street Townhouse opened in at the end of 2009 and serves up unpretentious locally sourced (British & Irish) dishes in a rather nice dining room. I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to see baked beans on a menu!
So there we were, two ladies gossiping over Buck’s Fizz at 11h00. Champagne for breakfast? Top me up already! My friend ordered the most delicious grilled Manx kippers and I had grilled mushrooms on toast with grilled tomatoes on the side. Fresh, tasty and the service was good – our waiter had that cheeky yet professional manner I adore about British service. Add that to the old-yet-new charm of the restaurant’s décor and the reasonable prices, and you have yourself a nice place to stop whilst enjoying Soho.
