Review on Waterloo Bar and Grill
The Waterloo Bar and Grill was opened by the team behind the Cheyne Walk Brasserie in Chelsea, this newcomer close to Waterloo station offers an all-day eating experience with flexibility as its hallmark. There are fine views of the Old Vic from a wall of windows, and the interior is richly done out with dark wood and warm colour schemes.
True to its name, the menu at 'WB' (as it's known) trawls through the classic brasserie repertoire, mixing Gallic standards with a smattering of ideas from other corners of Europe. Breakfast brings croque monsieur, an upmarket version of smoked and scrambled eggs and so on; snacks, pasta and salads fill the daytime gaps, and lunches bring on cassoulet, crispy Brie tatin with shallot confit, tartines and barigoule.
At 5 o'clock the kitchen changes over to a more restaurant-style evening menu, bringing out extra dishes such as braised beef cheeks with winter vegetables and watercress, fillet of sea bream with Parma ham and chicken jus, and desserts ranging from crème caramel to hot chocolate fondant with salty caramel sorbet. The wine list is a 200-strong slate, with France as the undoubted frontrunner: the exposed working wine cellar is a great talking point and focus of attention.
