Historically, they hardly set the bar for good food.
And in all the years that legendary Chinatown pub The Blue Posts has been operating (275 and counting), it’s never seen a meal as good as the ones that they’ve just started serving.
You see, it’s new lunch menu comes to us from Luke Robinson, current head chef of Evelyn’s Table – which sits conveniently below the pub – and alumnus of places like The Fat Duck, Nobu, and The Corner Room. He’s put together a fairly concise menu of both classics and slightly more experimental numbers.
You can expect some more conventional pub numbers, like their Cheeseburger Au Cheval (modelled after the one served at Chicago’s Au Cheval restaurant; and considered by many to be the best cheeseburger in the US), or a simple lineup of half a dozen Orford oysters.
Some of the slightly more experimental dishes include a brioche roll loaded with crisp fritto misto (seafood fried in a light, almost tempura-like batter), or a steak tartare made with 35-day dry aged beef.
On the side, they’re serving thin, shoestring-like Yokon Gold fries, and for dessert you can get some Amarena cherries with homemade vanilla ice cream.
And all of it will go very nicely with your pint.
