Robert's Fine Food & Drink
Quirky food and drink to cater for every palette
Location: 1 Upper James Street, W1F 9DF
Description: There is much that is absurd about this place but utterly compelling at the same time.
From the waiters' pink waistcoats, to the ornate interior, designed to look like the dining car of some fine Edwardian train (all leather banquette, brass rail and lamp light).
To the chrome toasters they bring if you order breakfast. Happily, though, there is a steady hand at work both in the kitchen and front of house!
A deluxe diner in Soho with Champagne buzzers at every table - there's an eclectic all-day menu from 7am to 1am - ranging from 'Chateau-briand and Caviar' to 'Frosties Cornflakes' and ' Ritz Crackers with Dairylea Triangles'...something for everyone!
With a mission to provide whatever food you want at any time of the day, a la, New York and Moscow, this is the place to come.
If only to see the Belle Epoque railway car interior.
