Review on Blacklock City
Having made a big impression with Blacklock in Soho, ex-Hawksmoor alumni Graham Ker launched a sibling restaurant in the heart of the City. Just minutes from the iconic Walkie Talkie building and the Monument tube station. Underneath the site of London's oldest meat market, it's a subterranean space that was once home to an electricity substation. It's a much larger site than the Soho branch, taking bookings for lunch and dinner, it also has a separate bar, so you can pop in for drink. An industrial-esque space with an excellent backdrop of classic pop music, it features exposed brick walls, vintage lights, parquet flooring and reclaimed mosaic tiles.
Executive chef Mirek Dawid cooks succulent chops over a charcoal grill, using first-class meat from award winning Cornish farmer and butchers, Philip and Ian Warren. As a curtain raiser why not order the pig's head on toast with gravy or maybe the grilled squid and bone marrow, before moving on to the main event of chops with your choice of skinny chops, big chops or off the bone. To finish there's just two desserts, a white chocolate cheesecake with summer berries or a bread and butter pudding with vanilla ice cream.
There's a concise wine list together with wines on tap, alongside cocktails for a fiver or seven pound fifty.
