Still going strong
6 months later after the outstanding tasting menu (That oyster ice cream was truly work of art!) at the ever popular Pollen Street Social, here I am again for the fourth time at Jason Atherton's flagship London restaurant. Jason is pretty much the man of the moment right now having just launched Little Social on the other side of the road and Social Eating House at Poland Street, I returned to Pollen Street Social for lunch as I love the relaxing atmosphere and great food combination.
I went for the lunch menu this time around and as usual, I ordered a cocktail to start off with. The cocktail menu changed a lot compare to my last visit, very avant garde with much use of bespoke infuse spirit and syrup on the list. I ordered a "Silver Screen" popcorn washed Woodford Reserve bourbon, PSS cherry bespoke cola, orange oils, bitters with popcorn. This was pretty much a Manhattan with a modern twist but an interesting presentation which added a playful element to it. The standard of cocktail craftsmanship is rising in London and I was very excited to see how far Pollen Street Social's cocktail had develop compare to the early days.
