One of our favourite characteristic about London is its ability to always deliver numerous hidden gems to experience and discover. Evelyn’s Table is just one great example. An Eleven-Seat kitchen bar is hidden in the heart of Soho serving fine updated takes on Italian cuisine alongside some of the best fresh seasonal catch of the day.
This small restaurant is part of the newly renovated The Bluepost, Pub on Rupert Street managed by Zoe and Layo Paskin, the faces behind Team Palomar. The Pub has been redesigned and split into 3 spaces over 3 floors. The top floor is The Mulwray a cocktail bar, The Pub on the ground floor and Evelyn’s Table on lower ground carved out of an old beer cellar.
The Atmosphere is sophisticated, at this the high-end eatery, the eye is drawn in by the staple grey marble bar that separates the dining area from the open plan kitchen topped by golden light fixtures illuminating every fine table setting, making this a perfect go-to for a first date and couples offering up romance and intimacy accompanied by delicious food and newer wine pairings.
Rose Petal Negroni is a must to refresh the palate and prepare you for the Modern European dishes infused with Italian touches that will be prepared in the open air kitchen right at the bar. As Evelyn’s table is committed to serving only the freshest seasonal catch and meats the menu is updated daily according to local availability. Classic dry aged beef tartar is seasoned beautifully, leaving the mixing of the ingredients to you and accompanied by slightly garlic scented crispy sourdough. As dictated by the Italian tradition after the Antipasti (starters) you must have pasta, and we indulged into a Roman spaghetti specialty, Cacio e Pepe, traditionally made with black pepper crushed in the pan and fresh pecorino Romano cheese giving the pasta a homely and authentic flavour.
Research and understanding of what you eat are important here at Evelyn’s Table as The Chef explains each fish cut of the day, along with the flavours and texture of each catch. ( If in two we advise sharing 2 plates and indulging in 2 separate cuts) . Not a Fish lover? no need to worry, the Cote de Boeuf with bone marrow lyonnaise and Jerusalem artichoke will be a perfect choice.
Note: Don’t forget once you’ve done dining you can head upsatirs to the bustling Pub on the 2 floor or enjoy the great cocktails selection of The Mulwray to end your night in perfect style.
