I consider Brawn to be one of the most underrated restaurants in London (same goes for their sister restaurant Terroirs). Each time I’ve been I couldn’t help but overeat…the dishes are that good and this time was no exception.
In my opinion, restaurant Brawn is the perfect restaurant for a chilled Saturday or Sunday lunch. I love the fact that the big windows let so much light in and the view of the picturesque shops of the neighbouring Commercial road makes for a lovely backdrop to the dining experience.
When we visited restaurant Brawn we tried the following dishes:
- Saucisse seche
- Pork Rillette (8.5/10)
- Duck Hearts (8/10)
- Westcombe Cheddar Soufflé, Creamed Leeks, Salad (9/10)
- Braised oxtail with faggot (8/10)
- Swiss chard and prawns (9/10)
- Foie Gras, Caramelised Pear, Pain d’Epices (8/10)
When I started ordering the food the waitress stopped me halfway to let me know that I was ordering a lot of food. I replied with my usual comment (…I get told this very often in restaurants): “Don’t worry, I know what I’m doing, I eat a lot”. Normally when I say that I get proven right. This time Brawn got the better of me and I just didn’t have any space left for desserts.
All the dishes were tasty as always and the biological / natural wines that I tried were very nice as well. In total we spent £88 at restaurant Brawn (incl. service charge and two glasses of wine).
Overall rating for restaurant Brawn: 8.5/10
