Meet Ian Powrie, Manager of bbar....
What do you love about the London Restaurant scene? London’s such an exciting international city with so much to offer, I love that there are so many nationalities – it makes the day interesting, when you are talking to Russians, Brazilians - people from all over the world!
My favourite dish would probably be the Short Ribs, as they are exceptionally tasty and are one of our chef’s specialities. He locked himself away for a week perfecting the recipe, which takes 6 ½ hours to cook, so no wonder it’s a firm favourite.
As for my favourite drink, I would have to say our Manhattan cocktail. Our new cocktail list is very exciting and judging by the response most people seem to agree!
What trend are you watching on the London foodie scene?
I see a move towards people being interested in ‘Foraged Food’, I think that people are more conscious about what they are eating and are looking for creative healthier options – lots of beans, pulses and imaginative salads.
