Coal Vaults is a new restaurant and bar set within a historic space on Soho’s bustling Wardour Street – and opened just yesterday!
The space has a raw feel to it and boasts five separate vaults for private dining as well as an intimate bar and dining room.
James Knox Boothman’s small-plate menu will feature ingredient-led cuisine, focusing on quality and using seasonal produce. Sample dishes include five-hour shoulder of lamb cooked in hay and lavender and served with caper, mint and spiced anchovy couscous; Westcombe dairy ricotta cakes with figs, wild rocket and balsamic syrup; Seared scallops with black pudding, cider sauce and celery salted apple crisps and Earl Grey bread with butter and strawberry jam. Following the direction and approach of the kitchen; and with every dish on the menu listed with a cocktail to match, there is as much emphasis on the drinks offerings as the food.
