Sunday has always been one of our favourite days of the week and now there is another reason to love it: Bacchus Sundays. An offshoot of the original Bacchus Pub & Kitchen, formerly of 177 Hoxton Street, Sunday was always their busiest day, with the roasts being voted as the best in London by Guardian readers last year – and this new residency taking place in Hoxton Street Studios will focus their award-winning concept.
Expect simple menus, cocktails, relaxed surroundings and honest prices – Sunday afternoon is all about catching up with friends, reading the papers and taking things just that little bit slower and this is seen in the cooking too with beef being cooked for 9.5 hours to ensure it is as tender as possible, a secret potato recipe and gravy being made from scratch. The one – day a week dining room has a New York loft look about it, cool, casual and simple, black chairs and tables are juxtaposed against the crisp white studio walls, black and white photography adorns the walls and charming black and white gingham napkins ornament the table settings.
With a residency as opposed to a ‘pop up’ – Bacchus Sundays are here to stay, what better way is there to enjoy that last day of peace before the Monday morning commute? You'll be hard pressed to think of any. It’s absolute bliss some may say.
