Review on Wild Honey
Born out of the runaway success of Arbutus in Frith Street, Wild Honey has rapidly become another big hit for Anthony Demetre and Will Smith. The site used to be the Drones Club and much of the old feel remains, with dark oak panelling, a mirrored mantelpiece and artwork on the walls. Diners can eat at one of the unclothed tables or at the sizeable bar from a menu that offers straight-and-true modern dishes without flim-flam.
Humble ingredients and big flavours define dishes like potted corned beef served in a preserving jar, Marseilles-style bouillabaisse and bavette of beef with roast bone marrow and crushed lyonnaise potatoes. Elsewhere, the kitchen sends out wild rabbit and foie gras boudin blanc, Provençal-style gurnard, sea bass with girolles and borlotti beans, and slow-cooked Limousin veal. To finish, try wild honey ice cream with crushed honeycomb.
The keenly priced 50-bin wine list takes a leaf out of the Arbutus book and offers just about everything in 250ml carafes: expect a roll-call of fascinating gems from innovative producers.
