Foodie Friday #9: Bond & Brook in Fenwick, London


Fenwick Bond Street is a through and through hidden gem - Not only you can find some couture brands that you can't find in a mainstream department store, but recently my sister (@beautyorbread) & I have discovered their exquisite restaurant, Bond & Brook.


 
Bond & Brook is on the 2nd floor of Fenwick. It is an all day restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. (not dinner I am afraid as the restaurant closes with the store). My sister & I went there for lunch on a Saturday.

The decor was white, silvery & sleek, airy & bright. The atmosphere was elegant yet comfortable.


I had the seared tuna salad (you can opt for tinned tuna if you don't fancy raw tuna). Dressing was minimal, it made the dish so clean & refreshing. Perfect for a summer lunch.


My sister had the tomato & ham omelet. It came with a generous portion of salad!

Normally we would not have desserts but as we were enjoying the environment so much that we decided to turn this simple lunch into a luxury lunch and went for desserts & coffee.



I chose the dark chocolate mousse with syrupy figs, fig ice cream and pop corns. If you are serious about your chocolate mousse, this is it! First, the presentation was so beautiful, it looked like a dish from the Masterchef final. The texture of mousse was smooth & melt in the mouth, flavour was rich! I wish they gave me a bigger dollop of the fig ice cream to last me the whole bar of chocolate mousse. I was enjoying it up to about 3/4 of the bar, I was struggling a bit with the rest.



My sister had the macaroons. The four macaroons were not minis, they were the normal size! They were light & fluffy!

 

My coffee came with a little silvery container of smarties - that was so cute! A sprinkle of colours in a white restaurant - this little touch matched with their menu.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. We were planning to come back to try their afternoon tea. I think that would be exquisite!

Bond & Brook is a destination by itself, and Fenwick's sale will start on 25th June, will you be tempted to drop by?
