Where else would a day start with grilled kippers, fried potato and horseradish butter, or brioche French toast with marmalade-glazed kaiserfleisch, orange pekoe and maple syrup? Birdman's bold brunches are inspired. Share-plates include rich offerings such as sticky braised beef cheeks with truffled celeriac puree and jus. Customers could have walked straight out of the fashion mags piled by the front window, but this fave flies above fashion. The recent addition of strip mirrors and Deco hanging lights has given the old bird more of a bar feel to attract night owls as well as early birds.
