The Good Egg’s menus may be inspired by both Tel Aviv street food + the Jewish eateries of NYC…
…but their festive dinner menu Israeli good.
It involves a sharing feast for the whole table, with small bites, breads & dipping sauces, sides, desserts, hot drinks, cocktails, and a huge ‘centre stage’ dish to tie them all together.
For those who haven’t been to The Good Egg Soho, it’s an all-day restaurant with brunch and dinner menus nodding to the cuisine of Jewish communities in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and NYC, as well as a cocktail bar and an in-house bagel and babka bakery, dressed in a smart teal, turquoise & blush pink palette – you can read more about it HERE. Now back to that festive menu:
Things start with a round of welcome seasonal shrub fizz cocktails (they’re “the drinks equivalent of pickling”, taking fruit they’ve preserved in sugar & vinegar then topping with bubbly) before the food is laid out on the table. We can’t list it all here, but suffice to say there’s a lot: ‘Noshes’ include pastrami croquettes (Soho only), and smoked salmon & cream cheese crackers among others. House flatbreads get dipping plates like green whipped feta & pumpkin hummus. Tahini Mac & cheese, loaded fries, and garlic buttered chard all side the main courses: you can choose from either pastrami short-rib on the bone with chicory & golden raisin; an Iraqi tamarind & turmeric whole sea bass (Soho) / orange, saffron & almond fish tagine w/ buckwheat pilaf (Stoke Newington); or a massive festive shakshuka with feta, chard & sour cranberry.
Things then cool off when dessert & hot drinks make themselves known – expect salted pistachio with fig + rose chocolate bark; Turkish coffee affogato; and spiced honey pudding with orange blossom cream to all be laid out to share. Then a brew from Volcano Coffee Works and Good & Proper Tea.
If it’ll fit.
