Review on Bluebird Café White City
Bluebird Café White City is the second sequel to the iconic Bluebird restaurant which has been established on King's Road in Chelsea for some two decades, and joins the critically acclaimed D & D London's ever expanding group of luxury restaurants, bars and hotels. Located in the former Television Centre of the BBC, it's just steps away from both White City and Wood Lane underground stations.
The 5,000 square foot site has a a cafe, bar, deli and outdoor terrace, with interiors like its sibling designed by David d'Almada's Sagrada. A vibrant and colourful décor with a British 1960's vibe, the artwork has been sourced by Fraser Scott from young British artists, as well as designs inspired by Bridget Riley and Celia Birtwell.
The menu has a modern European repertoire which kicks off with starters such as stone bass ceviche, nectarine, shiso and ginger or you could opt for a classic chicken Caesar salad with baby gem, Berkswell, smoked anchovies and croutons. When it comes to main courses meat lovers might choose the succulent dry aged Angus rib-eye with chimichurri and roasted garlic. Other options worth pursuing would be the grilled Suffolk lamb cutlets, cauliflower and tabbouleh or the crab linguine with chilli, tomato, parsley and garlic. There's plenty of temptation with desserts such as a banana split, vanilla and caramel pecan ice cream, banana, candied pecans and Chantilly or the triple chocolate, chocolate ice cream caramelised popcorn, brownie and chocolate crumble.
The wine list has plenty of options by the glass and there's a well curated cocktail menu including Bluebird legends such as the Miss Chelsea consisting of Absolut vanilla vodka, Chambord black raspberry liqueur, cranberry juice and raspberry puree.
