Funfair Cocktails And Fiery Meze At This Neon-Infused Fitzrovia Joint

Firedog

4

By the time you’ve reached Firedog’s bar — flanked by an onslaught of TOTP neon and He-Man style illustrations — you’ll be needing something stiff. You’ve come to the right place; the Lamb’s Floss (hibiscus gin, sour cherry compote and pomegranate syrup, festooned with rose petal candy floss and a slab of turkish delight) placates the most flamboyant drinker; the Skell Bent is less funfair attraction, but still insists on making you slurp up apple sherbet through a rice paper note (like it or not, you’re having fun tonight). Bring on the meze! we cry — and Firedog ramps up this culinary party to the next level. Meaty octopus legs, writhe (not literally, thankfully) in smoked corn puree, and as for those chilli glazed charcoal prawns — if they came with a side of rice, we’d probably award them Best Seafood Curry This Side of the Arabian Sea. And then the mains crash in, slightly harshing our vibe. OK, the charred lamb cutlets, and braised ox cheeks are sticky and smokey in all the right places. But £18 and £16 respectively… sans sides? Too rich for our blood/bank account. Do your wallet a favour and stick to the meze plates. Firedog, 92 Newman Street, Fitzrovia, W1T 3EZ
