Review on Bluebird Restaurant
The old Bluebird Garage on Kings Road was taken over during the 1990s and became one of the premier addresses in the Conran restaurant portfolio (now D&D London). The restaurant underwent a £2m refurbishment in September 2016 with interiors designed by Sagrada, paying homage to the building's heritage as the first Bluebird Motor Company in the 1920's. The original steelwork frame within the atrium has been painted red and striking custom made furniture and fabrics are from British textile designer Celia Birtwell.
There's something for just about everyone on the democratic European-based menu, which also allows regional British produce to shine through. Here you will find all manner of appetisers (from Scottish scallops baked in their shells to goats' cheese pannacotta with beetroot, horseradish, watercress and blossom honey) along with crustacea, caviar and oysters, pasta, salads and mains covering everything from jazzed up Goosnargh chicken and cep pie to shank of Herdwick mutton with mustard fruits and tarragon. Ice creams, sorbets and sundaes round things off and the extensive global wine list includes plenty by the glass.
The whole Bluebird complex incorporates private dining rooms, a members' club and café (perfect for morning coffee, afternoon tea or cocktails), as well as as a French-style 'epicerie' selling fresh produce, takeaway dishes, charcuterie, pâtisserie and wines. The cobbled courtyard overlooking Kings Road has also been given a fancy facelift.
