Honky Tonk restaurant review - London, UK
Mark Cutler, founder of Notting Hill's Supperclub, has launched a NY-style diner with live music in little Chelsea. Named after the Stones' No.1 single Honky Tonk Woman, the space is decorated with original rock'n'roll posters, hand-drawn monochrome polka-dot wallpaper and worn brown-leather banquettes. The decor includes fun details like a 1950s vintage concertina lift door, white swimming pool tiles and Japanese ship lights. The menu offers beef or pork ribs, mac'n'cheese with porcini bechamel and Welsh rarebit with black truffle, while the bar offers deviations from British and American classics. Signature cocktails include the elderflower shandy, combining elderflower liquor with lemon juice and white floral beer with a ginger sugar rim, and the Pickleback: bourbon chased with a shot of homemade pickle juice.
