Review on Hixter
Having made a big impression with his Tramshed restaurant in Shoreditch, Mark Hix has followed the winning formula with the opening of Hixter in an old East Indian warehouse in Devonshire Square. Formerly occupied by Shushino, the cavernous building has smart interiors with exposed brick walls enlivened by specially commissioned artwork from British artists Gary Webb, Tracey Emin, Tim Noble and Sue Webster. Downstairs in the basement is the second outpost of Mark Hix's award-winning Soho cocktail bar with a late licence.
The kitchen under the leadership of Fabrizio Pusceddu places great emphasis on first-class seasonal British produce for its dishes. Kick off with Yorkshire pudding with whipped chicken livers or maybe six rock oysters with spicy Sillfield Farm sausages. Main courses showcase Swainson House Farm Chicken in the shape of half a barn-reared Indian Rock chicken with stuffing and chips or Glanarm Mighty-Marbled steak with herb-roasted chateaubriand with chips and bearnaise sauce and both dishes can be served with half a lobster with hedgerow garlic butter. To finish you could choose pancakes with lemon and sugar or to share there's salted caramel fondue with marshmallows and doughnuts.
Hixter's extensive wine list offers something for everyone in terms of both taste and budget, as well as seasonal cocktails and Julian Temperley Cider Brandy.
