Introducing Henrietta Bistro, a new restaurant inside Covent Garden's Henrietta Hotel. The newly opened Henrietta Bistro replaces former restaurant, Henrietta by Ollie Dabbous, and welcomes new head chef Sylvain Roucayrol from sister site Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels.
Born in Perpignan, Sylvain will bring a new menu inspired by South West France, the Basque Country and the Catalunyan region of northern Spain. Regional highlights will sit alongside modern adaptations, all being full of flavour, colour and personality.
Guests can choose from a selection of French Pastis alongside dishes to share such as Kintoa ham served with piment d'Espelette or Getaria Anchovies. To follow, enjoy Grilled Galician octopus with a vibrant herb relish and Veal sweetbreads, nettles and vin jaune join Marinated lamb cutlets, black olives and aubergine. Lunch dishes will be similar and will all be priced under £11.
Henrietta Bistro’s wine menu focuses on wines from around the Mediterranean without forgetting their favourite European classics. The list is innovative and attractive, from interesting small growers to some larger domaines, all at accessible prices.
Guests can enjoy a dynamic atmosphere into the after hours with a late night menu and cocktails available until 1am. The lights will be dimmed and the music turned up allowing guests to stay and play at their table, or head upstairs to the mezzanine bar.
Head bartender Zach Cadez has designed the summer cocktail menu to complement the new dishes; with highlights including: Osasun, served in a Pourou, a type of traditional Catalan wine jug, combining Izarra (a French Basque liqueur), Fino sherry, honey and Espelette pepper syrup and plum, The Stars Look Down comprising Yaguara cachaca, Sipsmith sloe gin, lime, blood orange, coconut & Earl Grey cordial, Peychaud’s bitter and Summerhill with Dupont.
