for a weeknight dinner: bronte
Positioned on one of London’s most prolific streets, The Strand, and named after its neighbour Lord Nelson who stands in stone in close proximity in Trafalgar Square, Bronte is a stylish new hotspot on London’s landscape. Designed by Tom Dixon, every element of the interior is considered and laced with historical relevance, linking back to The Duke Of Bronte’s travels. Pink concrete and green granite appear ever-more opulent when positioned in the bright, airy space, fusing the season’s most covetable interior trends with something much more long-standing in terms of aesthetic. Even the cocktail menu features sketches inspired by the Duke’s collectable trinkets. This season, Executive Chef Andrew Lassetter and Head Chef Guy Betteridge have worked together to create a menu that offers both traditional British and classic Asian dishes. To start, try the much-talked about chorizo and prawn Scotch egg followed by the Miso Black Cod or stick to the vegetarian speciality; the Edamame and Kale pancake for something off-piste.
