Review on Hixter Bankside
Mark Hix heads south of the river for the latest addition to his stable of restaurants with the opening of Hixter in Bankside, a short walk from Borough Market. Occupying a former metal box factory, the restaurant pays homage to the original space with an industrial vibe featuring metal and exposed brickwork, and walls adorned with neons and artwork from British artists such as Mat Collishaw, Tracey Emin, Tim Noble and Gary Webb. The main dining room is a light and airy affair with a towering Himalayan salt-brick wall and well spaced tables overlooked by the open kitchen. Downstairs you will find the latest outpost of the award-winning Mark's Bar serving seasonal cocktails and tasty snax.
Carnivores are in for a treat as first-class meat gets top billing, with beef sourced from specially reared Hereford and Aberdeen Angus breeds and chicken comes from Swainson House Farm. Among the list of starters you might find barbecue sugar pit beef, split green pea and mange tout salad or there's Mark's apple and oak smoked Loch Duart potted salmon with pickled cucumber. Main courses embrace Indian rock chicken curry with basmati rice or there's a fillet steak salad with scrumpy-fried onions and horseradish. A salted caramel fondue with marshmallows and doughnuts to share makes a fitting finish or there's cranberry ripple and white chocolate mousse.
From 12pm to 5pm daily, children under 10 can eat free from the calves' menu when accompanied by an adult dining in the restaurant. Bottomless Brunch is a popular event available every Saturday from 10.30am to 4pm.
