Lunching at Gordon Ramsay's Heddon Street Kitchen


Saturday saw a lunch invite down to Gordon Ramsay's Heddon Street Kitchen for a three course meal and a few cocktails on the side. Our table was set with menus and even a blanket incase the weather turned (which it didn't, v warm in fact). We were seated on the terrace outside, surrounded by plants and the street itself, just off of Regent Street, was a beauty itself.  The bar manager introduced himself as he explained the drinks he was serving us. I'm not sure what the first one was, but I have NEVER tasted something so nice. 

We chose the bread for starters, warm and diamond shaped. Simple bread but a 10/10. My choice of main was the ravioli, which had just been added to the menu the day before. Jay ordered the fillet steak and hasn't stopped talking about it since. It was a melt in your mouth moment apparently, how a steak should be. I don't eat red meat, but I'm drooling just thinking about it. We both had chips on the side, with the ketchup coming in a jam jar. A literal jam jar. The next cocktail had a prosecco base, lovely of course, but the first was still my favourite. 

I'd like to take this time to say that the staff were AMAZING and so attentive, but not overbearing. I saw them constantly refilling waters and wine and it's a small thing but you don't get that at restaurants near me. Could not do enough. 

Dessert was a salted caramel and fresh berry bowl for me and a kiwi and passionfruit (I want to say?!) sorbet for Jay. It was so simple but it worked after a filling meal and a belly topped up with alcohol. And on that note, another frozen treat was handed to us in a paper cup (LOVE anything takeaway), a frosé by Belsazar. I'm not usually a rosé person, but as much as this strong, being a slush toned it down quite a bit. Does that make sense? 

I really can't rate the restaurant highly enough. If you're out in the city, then definitely think about heading down to Heddon Street Kitchen. Anyone want to treat me to brunch... soon... please?

This experience was kindly gifted by Gordon Ramsay Restaurants. This post was not asked for and all thoughts are my own. I just enjoyed it very very much.
