It's easy to see why the group took home the 'Street Food of the Year' gong from 2012's Young British Foodies Awards, with their seasonal menu that includes venison steak, a slow-cooked venison stew and the delicious 'Veni-Moo' burger, a double-patty (one beef, one venison) sensation topped with beef bacon and béarnaise. Delicious fries and a squash-based salad option (with optional venison carpaccio) complete a fantastic lineup that remains incredibly well priced, topping out at a very reasonable £12.50 for the steak.
Their new Charlotte Street site was formerly home to the long-standing and much-loved Double J's Cafe, which sadly had to close its doors for the last time earlier this year. In taking over the spot, the Wild Game Co. have taken the opportunity to return to their roots, mounting stag heads and butchers hooks on the walls and ceiling above the space's original hardwood floor to make for a rustic, authentic interior, complimented by their inch-thick wooden serving platters.
With winter drawing in, it feels like just the right time to warm the cockles with hearty, well-sourced game, and at the price it really is an absolute steal. And be sure to pick up a jar of the superb 'Rubies in the Rubble' chutney on the way out!
On 27th January The Wild Game Co. will be teaming up with The Wild Beer Co., offering award winning Somerset beers along with their tasty Scottish fare. The evening will feature a specially created four-course dinner featuring earl grey cured salmon, pigeon and beer porridge, with six special beers to match. A must for foodies, at £44 a head, it's not cheap, but prepare to leave one of the best restaurants in Fitzrovia sated with the flavours of British cuisine.
