“Let them eat caviar”, thus spaketh Bob Bob

Let them eat caviar! Forget all those gloom and doom sayers, all those folks complaining about the state of our current situation. What we all need is to get down to Bob Bob Ricard in Soho to forget about our everyday woes and immerse ourselves in a spot of gustatory pampering.

I’m talking about Bob Bob’s latest lunchtime special. Bob Bob Ricard want to become known as “the number one choice for caviar in London” and they have come up with a cracker of a deal, the Caviar lunch. £19.75 gets you 10g of caviar with sour cream and blinis ( normally £24 at Harrod), a choice of either meat pelmeni or truffle and potato vareniki and a shot of Russian Standard vodka.While you’re perusing the menu, you can always order the Rhubarb G&T. A unique concoction made up by Bob Bob (aka Leonid Shutov, one half of Bob Bob Ricard) himself, the rhubarb is made to a secret recipe and the result is an amazingly tasty G&T.

Bob Bob Ricard is a throwback to a more glamorous age, I’m thinking Mad Men but without all the social ills of that day, (thinking racism, sexism, xenophobia, etc). It’s the only all booth restaurant in London and has the unique “press for Champagne” button at each booth. Be careful, I’ve pushed that button and it ain’t cheap!

The caviar lunchtime special will be running throughout the month of August until 5pm everyday, so hop on down.

Bob Bob Ricard is at 1 Upper James St., W1F 9DF

    Cheers from Australia,

    Amy @ Foodista

  2. Yay gotta love Bob Bob

    • I’m really looking forward to his next lunch deal. What do you think it will be? Knowing Bob Bob, it’ll probably be something like premier cru and burgers!

  3. This is such a great deal – I love Bob Bob!
