The Riding House Café

The Riding House Café Review

Stuffed squirrel lamp holders peer down on trendy London diners at this groovy New York–style small-plates-and-luxe-burgers all-day brasserie just north of Oxford Circus. Everything's appropriately salvaged or bespoke here, so you'll find stuffed birds and other taxidermy dotted around, reclaimed theater seats at the long counter bar, bright orange leather ban+quettes, or old snooker table legs holding up your dining table. Opt for the £5 small plates of sea bass ceviche with lime and chili or veal and pork meatballs with pomarola sauce, and then head for the poached egg chorizo hash browns, pearl-barley salt marsh lamb broth, a decadent cheeseburger, with gherkin and chips—a bargain at £12.50—or their famed tummy-filling lobster lasagna (£18.80). Service is NYC-standard friendly, and you'll find all-day breakfasts, hard shakes, and cocktails, plus sundaes on the kids menu.
