Dalloway Terrace has reopened with a gorgeous spring installation.
Quite easily one of London’s most Instagrammable restaurants, Bloomsbury’s Dalloway Terrace have made a welcome return after the latest lockdown, and they’re up to their usual tricks when it comes to décor. The restaurant’s idyllic terrace has been given a fresh look for spring, and sipping seasonal cocktails here is just the treat we need after four long months of confinement.
With the flowers blooming and the evenings getting lighter, Dalloway Terrace have opted to welcome spring into the restaurant, with London florist McQueens Flowers given the task of transforming the stunning terrace to evoke the rolling hills of the British countryside. Canopies of corn flowers, daisies, dried wheat, and pampas grass now fill the terrace, as if someone had distilled the very essence of spring and unleashed it on Dalloway Terrace.
Dalloway Terrace have employed heaters and blankets to keep the worst of the British weather out. But still, they know that a nip of booze will help keep the early season chill at bay, so they’ve teamed up with Belvedere Vodka for a range of delightful cocktails. I’m particularly intrigued by the Jasmine Delight, which mixes Belvedere Vodka, jasmine verte liqueur, lemon, blackcurrant coulis, agave syrup, and peach and jasmine soda into a fragrant floral libation.
Spring is also on the menu when it comes to food, with roasted carrot soup, sea bass ceviche, blackened miso cod, and baked dukkah spiced aubergine all featuring on the menu. Best of all, there’s a springtime afternoon tea in the offing that you know you’re going to want to try, with a selection of delightful sandwiches and sweet treats; the bergamot and pink peppercorn tart, lapsang souchong and milk chocolate eclair, and jasmine and white chocolate parfait are particularly eye-catching inclusions.
To ensure the safety and comfort of guests, Dalloway Terrace has some Covid-era health and safety measures in place, including a one metre distance between tables, clear signage to guide people around, the ability to access menus on your phone, sanitising tables before every sitting, and plenty of hand sanitiser available. In this idyllic setting, you can let go of those lockdown blues, and coast gently into the warm embrace of springtime.
Find Dalloway Terrace at 16-22 Great Russell Street, Fitzrovia, WC1B 3NN. More info from their website.
