Whenever I see a restaurant pop up on blogs multiple times, I immediately need to see if it's worth the hype. So after seeing No 11 Pimlico Road on a few of my favourite blogs, I arranged a lunch date with my favourite lunch partner, Suzie, for a long awaited catch up.
Being a short walk from Victoria station, it's a great location for lunch meetings or dinner. Although it was relatively quiet when we arrived for an early lunch, it was the perfect time to snap a few photos of the beautiful interiors. Note the mirrors in the second picture, I am obsessed with them and the blue plush sofas! Complete with marble tables, it's a bloggers dream and now I can understand why so many people have been there since it opened.
As for the menu, there was something for everyone and completely varied. Having browsed both separate weekend menus, I'm keen to visit for a weekend brunch one day to indulge in their ricotta pancakes. This time around I went for the marinated chicken skewers with a honey yoghurt dressing with a side of truffle macaroni cheese. If there is macaroni cheese on the menu, especially with truffle included, there's no way on earth that I'm skipping that. Although I couldn't finish the full side (it was the size of a main course!), it was delicious, if not containing a little too much truffle for my liking. Suzie went for No. 11 Pimlico burger which looked divine and was huge! To finish, we shared the dark chocolate mousse with a brownie base, hazelnuts and a salted caramel sauce.
For weekend, I would suggest booking as it's still new and will be busy however on a weekday, it's not needed and will be quiet enough to just drop in.
