Located on the King’s Road in the heart of Chelsea, local neighbourhood restaurant Bluebird serves up a modern European menu with a fantastic bar, outside terrace and lounge area.
Large and uniquely styled, the large Art Deco venue is perfect for any event whether that be business lunches, drinks with friends or romantic dinners. The quirky interiors are fun and relaxed with bespoke Celia Birtwell textiles and plenty of flora and greenery.
Harvey Ayliffe has been recently appointed as Executive Chef at both Bluebird Chelsea and Bluebird Café White City. Bringing over 30 years’ diverse experience to the stylish Chelsea landmark, Harvey’s updated edition of Bluebird’s already varied menu reflects the fun-loving nature of the established restaurant.
With a heap of experience from other top London eateries such as Rules, J Sheekey, Le Caprice, The Ivy, 34 Mayfair and Soho House – Harvey brings an experienced hand to the Bluebird’s kitchen.
The new menu brings back some of Bluebird’s most popular classic dishes with a new modern twist. Guests can enjoy the likes of the Bluebird chicken pie, which is now served with cep mushroom, smoked garlic mash and January king cabbage. Fresh look Bluebird curries such as Malvani monkfish & king prawn curry served with coconut chutney, lime rice and naan bread; and perfect for Veganary – meat-free dishes like cumin roasted aubergine, toasted freekeh, pomegranate and pistachio dukka.
Other menu highlights include steak tartare, quail’s egg and beef dripping toast; Iberico pork rack with coco beans; chorizo and black cabbage, aioli; and the Bluebird Burger with maple cured bacon from the Josper Grill.
As expected the bar’s cocktail menu is innovative and playful with favourites including the aptly named Kings Road Cocktail (Cointreau, rose syrup, lemon juice, topped up with Moet & Chandon); and Maid in Chelsea (Don Julio blanco, Lanique rose liqueur, rose syrup, lime juice, cucumber and mint) on offer.
Retire to the lounge area after dinner for a few more post-dinner drinks – you won’t want to leave.
