Best brunches in London
Our passionate love affair with brunch shows no sign of abating, but with so many options out there, where to go?
Even on a Sunday morning, Red Rooster is hopping with a young Hoxton crowd. It’s an eclectic dining room downstairs at The Curtain with a distinctly night club vibe. We love the bespoke wallpaper, check armchairs, pans hanging above the bar and all the artwork sourced in Harlem.
The food takes its cue from Ethiopian born, Swedish raised, New York star chef Marcus Samuelsson’s heritage mash-up. This is cooking big on comfort and portions, so order wisely.
Don’t miss the exceptional corn bread with honey butter and chilli tomato jam, retro devilled eggs or Swedish style meatballs in creamy dill sauce with lingonberry. We found the famed fried chicken frankly rather uninspired: not as succulent or piquant as hoped though the collard green mac n cheese was delicious enough to fight over.
We only wish we’d had room for the amazing looking chocolate baked Alaska. Top it all off with an excellent Bloody Mary revved up with a powerful Japanese spice mix.
But it’s the Gospel Choir that really blew us away. Sensational harmonic singing – it was beautifully musical and utterly infectious.
Price: £70.00 brunch for two including drinks
