We may be basking in the sun at the moment, hems are getting shorter- which may or may not be a good thing and the time that it is acceptable to have a gin and tonic is getting earlier – always a good thing, but as we all know British summertime is a variable little thing and often likes to fool us into a heatwave before bringing the downpours.
Which is why Soho pan-Indian restaurant, Carom, have recently launched The Glasshouse. A solarium-inspired space, it’s a little escape into tropical temperatures, a constant summer – whatever the weather is outside. Luscious foliage and bright, summer colours will decorate the space, whilst the glass roof will ensure there is maximum light, if however it gets a little cloudier then there will also be SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) lamps to bring all the benefits of the sun!
The Sunshine Cocktail menu features the likes of a Grape Julep which is bursting with vitamin D – best stock up whilst you have the chance – and head chef Vishny Natarajan has created a chilli – infused menu with dishes such as Meen Varuval, a dish of pan-fried sardine fillets served with a fiery madras marinade and Malabar Jumbo Tiger Prawns, gently fried and served with a milled red chilli and coconut and spice dip.
Open now until the end of September – we only wish it was still around later in the year to stave off the winter blues – Carom can we persuade you?
