Get a lesson on Argentine cuisine – and cocktails – at Bochinche, captained by acclaimed Argentine chef Diego Jacquet (formerly of multi-Michelin-starred El Bulli). The brunch menu has garnered a loyal following – who wouldn’t be excited at the thought of beginning the day with brioche French toast, house-cooked ham and bacon ice-cream, or cuttlefish, fennel and chorizo empanadas? Dishes are zingy and light – tomatoes with pickled watermelon, mozzarella, onions and chervil, or sea bass ceviche with radishes and preserved lemon; there are also meaty mains on offer for lunch and dinner. The restaurant is rightfully fussy about its beef, which is carefully selected, grass-fed and imported from Argentina. South American flavours characterise cocktails, too, which are given extra pizzazz via chimichurri and Venezuelan rum. Sweet-tooths have a lot to smile about, thanks to chef’s playful puddings, which include dulce de leche crème brûlée and banana-split ice-cream, and chocolate mousse with cherries, olive oil and honeycomb. If you want chef Jacquet to determine your experience, there are two reasonably priced set menus (one two-course; one three-). The restaurant is a smart little black and white space, decorated with monochrome photography and simple seats.
