My other half is a tad obsessed with Honey & Co and so we decided to try the newest addition to their mini chain, Honey & Smoke.
There was a ‘concept’ to the menu – the explanation was a bit convoluted but essentially there is a set menu with a very generous portion of mezze and then each person can choose a grill. The other alternative is to do a la carte but the set menu seemed to be the way to go.
The portions were incredibly generous! So many dishes, all very tasty. I am not a huge fan of tahini and luckily this was under control (unlike some Middle Eastern restaurants). My favourites were labneh, roasted cauliflower, and a pistachio and apricot salad. I also enjoyed the tasty dish of pickles.
I had a chicken fatayer as my grill; the chicken inside the pastry was well seasoned and succulent, though I found the knife not up to the job of cutting through the pastry on the outside. I ended up picking out the chicken in the middle, before eventually admitting defeat; I was too full, which doesn’t happen often!
Will we go back again? I would say so; I think it’s a solid addition to the north end of Fitzrovia and I think next time we’ll go a la carte.
