Pidgin is one of London’s great culinary assets. The restaurant itself is simple—muted gray soft furnishings contrast against wooden chairs and wall hangings that hint at the natural world outside—and echoes the simple elegance of the food. Pidgin offers four courses as part of a set menu that changes weekly. Each course centers around a single element—oyster or goose, for example—with each dish designed to highlight the central ingredient. The result is dishes such as tangerine sorbet with rice papad, chocolate, parsley and machha, and is simple and sublime. The drinks rotate, too, and the cocktail menu boasts beverages with names like Katie Made Me Do It, illustrating that Pidgin’s offerings have not only style, but also a sense of humour.
