Having walked past HIX Soho for a number of years whilst living in Soho, I’ve always been rather intrigued, yet for some reason I had not made it through the front door. Thankfully we finally decided to visit, and we were not disappointed. HIX takes its name from owner and Chef Mark Hix. The décor is interesting and delivers a collection of modern wall mounted pieces of art from the likes of Damien Hurst, which would excite even the most novice of art enthusiasts. The restaurant is on the ground level with a basement bar tucked away downstairs, which is just a joy and perfect for the Soho crowd. Service is on point, and the food was the talking point of our evening for all the right reasons.

We started our evening with two fine glasses of a 2010 Furleigh Estate Rose from Dorset, England. A pale pink sparkling wine, gentle on the palate making it the perfect aperitif.

To begin we ordered the Whipped Elveden Beets with Neal’s Yard Dairy Goat’s Curd and Walnuts. A delicious dish with a superb arrangement of flavours. My partner ordered the Baked Celeriac with Curly Kale and Pickled Walnuts. Another splendid dish which left us excited to sample more from the menu.

"The perfect marriage between food and art."

On to our main course, we decided on the Glenarm Estate 1kg Porterhouse Steak for two. This large cut was superb. It was juicy, tender, well-presented, and deliciously seasoned. We added sides of Tiptoe Farm Chipped Potatoes and Creamed Spinach, both of which complimented the Steak very well.

We ended the evening by sampling a couple of desserts. I ordered the shot of Espresso Martini Buttermilk Pudding. A smooth, creamy, indulgent dessert, a perfect end to the evening. My partner ordered a Peruvian Gold Chocolate Mousse with Honeycomb. These are just two of several tempting and delicious deserts on the menu at HIX, and I’m sure we will be returning to sample more in the future.

Our chosen wine for the evening was a bottle of 2013, Côtes du Rhône, ‘Nature’ Famille Perrin, Rhone Valley, France. A lovely medium bodied wine with a bright red colour, and some spicy, liquorice notes. We left HIX very satisfied, we only wish we had visited sooner.
