Blue Door Bistro
A British bistro at the Montague on The Gardens boutique hotel, in Bloomsbury. The menu features a selection of seasonal British dishes, though classic French dishes also feature. Meals are served in a dining room that harks back to the hotel's 19th century inception. The kitchen is headed up by Martin Halls, whose menu also boasts influence from Beatrice Tollman, President and Founder of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection. Sustainable and local sourcing plays an important part across the menu, and many dishes feature ingredients plucked from the bistro's own herb garden. Keep an eye out for afternoon teas and seasonal specials, including the Montague Ski Lodge, free-flowing Champagne afternoon teas and lessons in sabrage - the art of opening a Champagne bottle with a sabre. The hotel boasts an impressive cigar terrace, too.
