Fifth Floor Café Valentine’s Day and beyond
Romance is definitely not dead, well not in the Fifth Floor Café in Harvey Nichols. The Valentine’s Day menu was scrumptious and surprisingly reasonably priced, especially as it included some rather smooth champagne. The menu was simple but delicious, my husband and I both began with a crispy duck salad with a rich soy sauce dressing, not only did it look pretty it tasted divine. We followed this with pork belly, perfect crackling and apple sauce, with chunky fries, all washed down with that delicious Harvey Nichols champagne. Our final course was sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream. The whole Harvey Nichols Café dining experience was so romantic, with the soft twinkly purple lighting, shiny cutlery and crystal glassware, the service was first class and we had an unhurried delicious couple of hours enjoying the ambience and cuisine.
But what goes on when Valentine’s Day has gone? Business as usual for the Fifth Floor Café where Executive Head Chef Jeremy Bloor uses the finest ingredients, to ensure the dishes are created using some of the finest seasonal British produce available. The menu has a huge variety to cater to all tastes and dietary requirements such as Orkney Scallops, Langoustine ravioli, Lemon sole, Vension or even Châteaubriand, as well as vegan and vegetarian options. The desserts are equally as enticing, passion fruit and banana souffle, Valrhona chocolate plate or just a simple selection of sorbets, but nothing here is simple, to be honest, it’s the perfect venue where you are guaranteed fine cuisine and fabulous décor with a relaxed ambience
When you’ve finished your dining experience there’s always the opportunity to have a little retail therapy, and why not, after all, it is a store full of everything designer!
