B-SOHO is a great example of a contemporary, fresh and fun modern Italian dining experience. Set in Soho (as you would expect from its name), the area was alive on the Saturday evening we visited and there was a real buzz in the air. This buzz, we are happy to report, transferred very well to what was a very vibrant and exciting cocktail bar and restaurant.
Set across two levels, the first is a relaxed and contemporary lounge space, we immediately felt at home and welcomed by the staff. Our meal would actually take place in the downstairs restaurant, which had more of a formal and restaurant feel. But fear not, no matter what floor you are on, you have access to the full menu!
B-SOHO claims to be `an authentic Neapolitan pizzeria and cocktail bar that has brought a winning combination of mouthwatering pizza, perfectly balanced cocktails and live music`. We have to say, based on our visit, all elements are present here and the restaurant/cocktail bar ticked all of the boxes. In short, the live music was playing, the cocktails would turn out to be perfectly balanced and the pizza was indeed mouthwatering.
To kick off with we went with the B-SOHO Arancini – Italian risotto balls filled with mushroom, white truffle, mozzarella and Grand Pedano. Crispy and crunchy on the outside, the inside then melted away in the mouth and provided a sumptuous flavour hit. They really did pack a great flavour. Whilst sampling the starters we also went for a couple of cocktails to keep our taste buds tingling. My partner going for a sophisticated, classic Bellini and I went for the Long Island Iced Tea. Both were mixed wonderfully and balanced too. In short, the cocktail menu here seemed eclectic and reasonably priced, therefore making it a great place to kick back on a weekend or after work.
My partner, who actually lived in Italy for a few years, was keen to try the pizzas in particular and see how authentic they really were. She went for the Don Piccante a spicy salami, mozzarella and tomato medley and she was really impressed with the freshness and honesty of the flavours. It was a great pizza. My meal took me towards the specials menu and the simply named `Pollo Funghi` – this dish had a simple name, but was a fantastic collaboration of pan fried chicken breast, wild mushrooms and a creamy sauce, which had oodles of flavour. Although quite rich, the dish had a wonderful overall flavour and each element worked well. The starters and mains seemed to very well work to the authentic Italian style of the restaurant and it didn’t stop there… The B-SOHO salted caramel sundae was the perfect end to the meal and married together salt and caramel perfectly, for an indulgent and tasty encore.
We would certainly recommend B-SOHO to anyone looking for an Italian dining experience with great cocktails. Find out more here: b-soho
