Next week, Mayfair will welcome Neo Bistro to Woodstock Street. The new restaurant from Alex Harper (former and Head Chef of The Harwood Arms) will be under the guidance of Mark Jarvis (Chef-Patron of Anglo) and is drawing inspiration from the new bistros of Paris.
Doing away with fine dining to take a more relaxed approach instead, the menu will be concise but will be constantly evolving and changing. Expect to find cured Tamworth pork, venison chorizo and fresh cheese with smoked potato, grilled leeks and walnut pesto alongside more substantial dishes of roast sea bass with mousserons, English asparagus and thyme. Puddings will revolve around the likes of chocolate tart with malt ice cream and salted caramel and Gariguette strawberries with lemon verbena. Looking after the wine list will be Anglo’s Nick Gilkinson, it’ll feature bottles from lesser-known grape varieties and emerging regions, with glasses starting at just £5. Whilst cocktails and craft beer will follow the food and change regularly, expect classics with a Neo Bistro twist.
Banquette tables, counter-style seats on ‘butcher’s block’ stools, exposed brick walls, vintage posters and neon signage will make up the look of the Neo Bistro.
