Review on Dirty Bones

Dirty Bones opened in January 2014, steps away from High Street Kensington and a short walk from Kensington Gardens. During the day it operates as a hot dog kiosk, but during the evening there's a fully fledged restaurant. Designed by award winning British designed Lee Broom, you need to find the hidden door to the neon lit stairs descending to the basement restaurant, where you will find a quirky retro American style diner with art deco tiling and comfy blue and teal leather banquettes. A vintage pinball machine serves as the hostess table and spirits and mixers are stored in the mismatched fully working caravan mini fridges covered in bumper sticks, that sit behind the bar.

Its the perfect venue for a fun filled friends night out, with the menu provided by ex-Fat Duck Experimental chef, Ross Clarke. In addition to hot dogs in the shape of the Brit Dog, treacle bacon, mature beer cheddar, curried gherkins and English Mustard or the Asian, kimchi purée, wasabi mayonnaise, crispy seaweed and sesame seed, there's the bone part of the menu with crispy fried chicken with charred lemon, beef short ribs with barbecue sauce, sesame seeds and spring onions or Boston ribeye steak with Dirty Bones Glaze. To finish there's milk and cookies or coffee and doughnut.

Dirty Bones has a concise wine list together with creative cocktails like Dalmatians consisting of Baileys, chocolate, Finlandia vodka, DiSaronno, cream and chocolate chip ice cream. There are now four other Dirty Bones located in Soho, Carnaby, Shoreditch and Westgate, Oxford.
