Hg2 : The Hedonist

Cafe Boheme

This bustling Old Compton Street mainstay, opened back in 1992, has recently been bought and remade partly in the image of the other Soho House brasseries, such as the Electric, but is much more French in look and feel. Replete with burgundy leather banquettes and a zinc-topped bar, it’s open all day from breakfast until the wee hours. The menu, which is the work of Henry Harris who has since returned to Racine, runs through the usual French classics cum clichés, from croque monsieur to tarte tatin via a rather good steak frites. After midnight the pared menu still includes fish soup, oysters, duck confit and chocolate mousse. The basement hides the plush invite-only lounge bar, Boheme’s so-called ‘salon’. Full of hidden alcoves crying out for secret assignations, it’s well worth flirting with the management to gain access.
