Claude Bosi at Bibendum
Master Chef Claude Bosi is not new to London or the city dwellers that have sweet memories of the time when the Frenchman was at his best in Hibiscus. With the closure of the Hibiscus, Londoners were anxiously waiting for Bosi’s return that has now happened at Bibendum, South Kensington. Many connoisseurs and food watchers describe it as a restaurant with the capabilities of profound understanding about simple virtues. The starters are so appealing that it ranks among the top in the excellent list of London foodies. The ground floor houses the seafood restaurant where the oyster bar doubles up as a cocktail bar. The Bosi dining experience awaits you on the first floor.
Dandy Cafe was the name that made the restaurant famous for pop up food. However, from April 2017, when the restaurant moved to its new address at Newington Green, the name got a makeover. Cafe disappeared from the name, and its new name is Dandy, the dream of an Aussie pair who launched it. Despite its newness, the restaurant has caught the fancy of foodies who are going gaga about the splendid cooking that seems to be the best so far in London this year. The secret of success of the cuisines is the rare combination of flavours that make the foods special. The travel experiences of the founders influence the menu that includes some new specialities not heard of before.
