Bob Bob Ricard


Step back in time and have a seat on the Orient Express… Only this time, you have a plug socket next to your seat for your iPhone, and an emergency button for when the bubbly runs low.

This is what Bob Bob Ricard promises its affluent clientele: uninterrupted good times. The all-booth, Art Deco dining destination has been something of a Soho institution since opening in 2008.

Given the success over the last few years, owner Leonid Shutov decided to open another restaurant in the famous Cheesegrater building, the tallest in London, which will start receiving guests in April 2017.

In the stylish Soho dining room you can enjoy oysters with parmesan and truffle oil baked to Russian standards (£24 for six oysters), or the chicken Kiev (£24.50) alongside some truffled mashed potato (£7.95). Bob Bob Ricard is open 365 a year but not for anyone under the age of 12.
