We have been excited about visiting Dirty Martini’s newest branch – they have just opened their first city centre location on Bishopsgate, very near Liverpool Street station!
During the evening, we sampled some lovely cocktails, like the French, Passion Fruit, and Lychee Martinis; as well as some quirky and unique cocktails exclusive to the new Bishopsgate branch, like the Mischief Maker, created by Matt Greenwood (Product Innovation and Standards Manager) and his bar team. All this was accompanied with snacks from their bar menu, including Dirty Martini’s version of Smoked Salmon Blinis, Arancini balls, Crispy Vegetable Gyozas and Chargrilled Chorizo & Cherry Tomato skewers. Sadly though the very salty soy and mirin dressing for the gyozas ruined them; it could have been tempered easily with some sesame seed oil before bring out to customers. The arancini balls were particularly lovely with their gooey, oozing cheese centres and crisp bread-crumbed exteriors; the highlight of the evening regarding the bar snacks.
We really appreciated the friendly and attentive service particularly from Laura and Tamarin who specially organised Pear and Chocolate Martinis for us to try; all washed down with still and sparkling water from Blenheim Palace.
Thanks to the CG Restaurants Group PR, Restaurant and Bar teams, especially Matt, Rax, Tamarin, Lucy, Laura, Bogdan, Talar and our waitresses for looking after us so nicely during the evening. We will be back soon, particularly to try the intriguing sounding ‘Carrot Cake’ Martini and learn to make it during a cocktail masterclass with Matt! (Watch this space for a follow-up review.)
Dirty Martini Bishopsgate will be opening to the public from Thursday 26th September, 2013.
