History and background:
Courtesy of 40 Dean StreetForty Dean Street is the pinnacle of affordable Italian cuisine in busy Soho.
I think we all gawped once this was served out. I saw the parma ham and the salami and before I could take a snap, people had their fingers to it! A great selection of Italian cured meats which make a good sharing plate and at an incredible price too.
This was one of the main attractions of the night, a generous filling with whole lobster bits mixed in with the ravioli too. We found a whole claw by the side. Lobster bisque wasn’t too strong and complimented the dish well. Maybe could have had more greens to it but overall a satisfying dish.
Now these lamb chobs were some of the finest I’ve had. Succulent and juicy and cooked very well. Had this not been shared between the table I would have happily eaten all of it.
We ended with the dessert platter but not totally a fan of these, the panacotta was the star of the course, a jiggling delight but nothing impressive. No worry there, Soho has dessert bars and ice-cream hubs creeping up every corner. Overall, the quality and the prices of 40 Dean Street is right up there as a definite recommendation. Explore your taste-buds further and opt for a la carte, then opt for a Shackfuyu matcha ice-cream around the corner!
Service: Very friendly and very welcoming. The staff dances whilst serving you!
