Arriving early at the opulent bar that is Quaglino’s we were shown to the bar to wait for our table to be ready. It would be rude not to order a cocktail while we waited, so we went for a new cocktail on the menu for London Fashion Week, The Catwalk and an old favorite, the Wild and Beautiful.
Once down in the main dining area, an area I hadn’t actually sat in before. We were given our menus and our first glass of prosecco. We had escaped from the real world and entered a world of luxury. Brunch is my favourite meal of the day. Especially a bottomless brunch in a stunning venue.
Our starters were an easy choice. The classic brunch item, eggs. Now I’ve become a bit of a truffle addict since moving to London. You never would have gotten me to try it back home, but here I was having it on scrambled eggs. Dear readers, if only you could smell it – you would melt. I savored every single bite and instantly regretted going halves with my cousin. My cousin’s Eggs Florentine was delicious though so I didn’t feel too bad about sharing with her.
Our mains consisted of the Sea Brim and the Zucchini Risotto. Both which were rich and full of flavour. The Zuccini Risotto is very creamy and I couldn’t actually finish, especially as the lovely wait staff were very generous with the prosecco. Also I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t because I was wanting to save room for dessert.
The dessert was the highlight of the day as all good Chocolate Fondant should be. Completely decadent and the Peanut Butter Ice-Cream – Wow just Wow.
Throughout lunch, The Young Guns Roaming Band serenaded us. They were on point all night and Quaglino’s did the right thing by hiring them. They (or the endless prosecco) definitely had ladies up and dancing in the aisles. It was super cute to see the wait staff entertain some of the guests by twirling them around.
Quagino’s have done it again with one of the best brunches in town. Make sure you make your way there. It’s £25.00 for two courses and £30.00 for three courses. You must buy a minimum of 2 courses to be eligible for the £20.00 bottomless brunch. You won’t regret it. ONIN.London does love Quaglino’s and we always look forward to what is next in store.
