There are so many amazing restaurants in London and it’s always exciting to find a new place to frequent. There are trendy Rocket Restaurants scattered throughout the heart of the city. They have a great vibe and the Bishopsgate bar is buzzing in the middle of the week, with suited and booted city folk. The restaurant is funky and modern with retro space invaders finding their way onto the walls.
The extensive menu is a mixture of Italian food served in an American, hearty style. The starter of Caprese salad is refreshing and served as large wedges of Buffalo Mozzarella, with flavoursome cherry tomatoes and a drizzle of balsamic & basil salsa served with artisan bread. The crispy fried calamari is served rather fittingly on a bed of rocket, peppers & spring onion with a tangy, sweet chilli & lemon dressing. The stone baked pizzas are a must have here and large enough to share. But with so many different options and when you taste them you will really not want to share. The dough is light and perfectly thin. The prosciutto & mushroom pizza is generously scattered with jalapeños, bocconcini & fresh basil. It really is rather delicious. Mac ‘n’ cheese is very much an American side dish but seems to be finding its way on more and more menus in London. We couldn’t resist trying it and we were sure glad we did. It was creamy and cheesey and really rather moreish. It’s really American style portions and substantial enough to be a main. The classic sticky toffee pudding was warm and sweet with salted caramel ice cream and a crispy touile. There’s something about this warm sticky pudding that will leave you smiling and content.
The service is swift and friendly, and the food lovely. The Rocket Restautant is perfectly located for an afterwork dinner and the bar upstairs is great for private hire for celebrations or even a corporate event. This is a large restaurant and would be ideal for a large group for a birthday celebration or annual Christmas party.
