Dead Dolls Club – certainly alive and kicking

The trendy Dead Dolls Club in Dalston

You know when you really want to go to a new place in London but deep down you realise that ‘you ain’t getting in’, well that seemed to be the case for all my potential birthday choices last week. John Salt – no, Dabbous – try next year, Dishoom and Jose Pizarro – no reservations just queue, House of Wolf –  by that point we thought better of it.

But to our surprise the uber-trendy Dead Dolls Club in Dalston had a ‘2 hour give the table back slot’ for Sunday lunch – we’ll take it, result! We were sold on their declaration that “The Foragers will take over our kitchen. They’ll be cooking up a storm using ingredients foraged, hunted and gathered in The Shires of South-East England.” To say I was very excited was an understatement.

The service was polite and quick however it lacked the foodie love that I was hoping for. We asked about some of the dishes but no foraging joy and details were offered, however the food did speak volumes…

Superb air dried smoked mutton, leeks, hazelnuts and a delicious truffle vinaigrette

    Yummy! I tried to get in the House of Wolf for our anniversary this week *sigh*

  2. Remember when restaurants reserved a table at a time that worked for you! Dabbous are totally full for the whole year – heard they are looking to open another restaurant due to demand -blame the critics.
