At the end of this month, according to the Observer Food Monthly, Baltic will open at 74 Blackfriars Rd, next to The Ring pub, opposite Southwark tube. It will be an Eastern European restaurant with blinis, smoked fish, vodka, etc.
any new restaurants are welcome around here, especially a good variety. Taz is pretty good, and a Russian type restaurant would be welcomed by my Russian daughter in law. There is a great newish Thai - the Lye Torng, where the old Gibraltar/Bedlam pub was in St George's Road. Great food and great value, and a pretty decent little wine list.
Yes, Baltic will be right next door to the Ring at 74 Blackfriars Road. Not sure what it was before, but there is a faded old sign saying "Established 1839". This morning it was looking very unfinished -- still boards covering the whole front -- so that end-of-May opening looks a bit optimistic.
The Honest Goose has indeed closed, but the pizza place replacing it is supposed to bevery good, and there is always their sister restaurant The Honest Cabbage on Bermondsey Street.
I live a few doors down and it's scheduled to open next Tues 19th - well that what it says on the sign outside.
Lets hope it's a useful addition as I went last week to Pizza Paradiso which was awful - bad service backed up by terrible pizza and possibly the worst 'anti-pasti' I've ever eaten. So, I suppose I'll continue to wander over to Belvedere Rd/Whitehouse to Pizza Express , not great but competent -unless anyone knows somewhere else?
There\'s a Thai restaurant down the Lower Marshes and the food is very good. They do buffets for around £7 during the week which aren\'t up to much but the set meals are of a high standard and reasonably priced. If you want to go out for a quiet meal, that\'s the place to go.
Has anybody tried the Thai restaurant across from Waterloo Stn??
