Do you like having to yell at your friends when you go out drinking together? Fine, it’s your shout. We like to cater for everybody, so we’ve put together a list of ten places where talking is easier – ideal for those quiet catch-ups or maybe even date night. Of course, any bar can get a bit noisy if there’s a large and rowdy crowd in. But these places are all top bets if you don’t want to run in a hoarse-race.
This popular ramen joint group continues the expansion with its fifth Bone Daddies in the capital (not counting Flesh & Buns in Covent Garden and Shackfuyu in Soho, which are run by the same folk). Giving a New York edge to Japanese cuisine, Bone Daddies is known for its rock 'n' roll soundtrack and street-vendor aesthetic. This branch, which is walk-in only, is split over two floors, with an open kitchen downstairs and lots of timber and metal materials. Food comes in the form of wok-fried noodles, or tonkotsu broth. They also specialise in skewers robata-grilled (slow grilled over charcoal) here, featuring chicken, ox cheek, prawns and shiitake mushrooms in such marinades as kimchee butter and sweet chilli ponzu.
Venue says: “Bone Daddies Marylebone is now open from noon until late, serving new wok and robata dishes alongside Bone Daddies favourites. See website”
