Soho seafood institution Randall & Aubin will launch a new Champagne & Seafood bar with a unique twist this year.
Guests will order their champagne first and then be served seafood to perfectly compliment their choice of fizz…
The menu will showcase some delicious artisanal champagnes produced at family-run vineyards whilst celebrated Executive Chef Ed Baines, has devised a series of dishes guaranteed to create a harmony of taste between both that will truly delight. The champagnes will be served in half bottles making them perfect for ether one person or for two people to share.
Guests can enjoy a touch of pink with the beautiful Moutard Champagne Prestige Rosé, with its subtle, floral taste blends, essence of red fruits and spicy aromas which is the perfect partner for the signature Randall & Aubin Haddock & Chips with Tartare Sauce and Minted Peas. They can also order a half bottle of Moutards Brut Reserve with its fine and light fragrances of lemon and acacia and a creaminess given by the Chardonnay grapes used to produce it, the ideal match for Lobster Mayonnaise or, another favourite, Half Lobster Roasted in Garlic Butter.
For those who would like the full champagne and seafood experience, comes the pièce de resistance; a Half Bottle of Hébrart Premier Cru, which has a wonderful depth of stone fruit flavour, fine mousse and full length. Those enjoying this stunning champagne can toast it with a Fruits de Mer Platter loaded with Rock Oysters, a Whole Crab, Atlantic Shrimps, Diver Picked Scallops, Cockles, Whelks, Cherrystone Clams, Mediterranean Prawns and Green Lipped Mussels.
Once a family butchers, where Winston Churchill used to buy his meat from, Randall & Aubin has become renowned for serving excellent seafood, as well as an impressive array of classic French and British dishes. The current menus are created and overseen by Ed, whose passion for good, simple and delicious food is reflected in each of the dishes served, with fresh ingredients sourced daily. The venue has retained many of its original features with the stylish additions of marble tables, antique chandeliers and a retro disco ball.
