Dirty Bones Soho has come forth.
That is to say, Dirty Bones has launched the fourth location in their micro-empire, this time squarely in central London, in view of all the passing foot traffic that comes with it (and not tucked away in a Carnaby nook).
It’s a low-lit, intimate space boasting a Brooklyn-esque interior, with exposed brick walls, plush velvet banquettes, and retro artwork adorning the walls. There’s a resident DJ on call to provide classic hip-hop, funk, and soul at all hours, and towards the back (by the bookcases which, of course, disguise the route to the bathrooms), you’ll find a wood-panelled bar where you can perch for cocktails like the Rhum Old Fashioned and the Dirty Mary, which arrives with a crushed sour cream Pringle rim.
Once you’re ready for the main event, you can settle in for all the hangover-crushing American-style comfort food that people have come to expect from Dirty Bones, like the Mac Daddy burger, which combines mac and cheese with a burger; crispy lamb fries; chicken and waffles; and their classic Slow’n’Low ribs with a sesame crust. Plus, there’s a host of new additions like the cheeseburger dumplings, which consist of melted cheese, minced beef and burger sauce in gyoza-style trappings.
If there’s the tiniest bit of space left remaining, you can stuff it with peanut butter gelato and honey nut brittle, or a bourbon-laced oreo shake to finish. Or, just come back at the weekend for their ludicrously big bottomless brunches, where dishes like steak & eggs and short rib crumpets are accompanied by mix’n’match free-flowing cocktails, from Dirty Maries to the Lexy, with vodka, amaretto and prosecco. It’s good.
You’ll feel it in your bones.
NOTE: Dirty Bones Soho is open weekdays midday-midnight, Saturday 11am-midnight and Sunday 11am-11pm. You can find out more, and book a table, on their website right HERE.
