Get your glitter on and your rainbow flag flying – this weekend is all about Pride. If you’re heading into town to party, watch the parade, or just soak up the atmosphere, be sure to plan ahead and find somewhere to eat. If you’re looking for something extra special, here are six West End restaurants serving up rainbow dishes and drinks all weekend long.
The Ivy Soho Brasserie is kicking things off with a fabulous brunch hosted by some of London’s best-loved drag queens. From 11am to 4pm, Tiffaney Wells and friends will be performing fun-loving hits while diners enjoy dishes like eggs Benedict and an indulgent truffled chicken sandwich. If you’re visiting later in the day, don’t miss their Pride of Soho cocktail – a blend of gin, grapefruit juice, Crème de Rose and hibiscus syrup, served in a golden coupe.
Their terrace – a top spot for people-watching – will be decked out with colourful flowers, balloons and butterflies. Grab a table, soak up the sun, and order the Strawberry Pride Melting Dome – a rainbow-topped white chocolate dome that melts to reveal fresh strawberries, meringue and honeycomb.
Peruvian-Japanese restaurant Chotto Matte is throwing a free Rainbow Pride Festival this Saturday with music, cocktails, and a brand new rainbow menu. Available until the end of July, the menu includes Sailor Jerry rum cocktails and a colourful selection of sushi rolls, dragon rolls, yellowtail gyoza and mochi balls. £1 from every dish sold will be donated to LGBT charity London Friend so come hungry and get stuck in! As an extra treat, guests can enjoy dishes and drinks on the house for an hour from midday.Continue Reading
