Located in Hollywood, Birch is a small intimate restaurant offering an interesting menu with some English flair. The menu has been designed by Head Chef Brendan Collins, who is native to Nottingham, England. Each dish we sampled was wonderfully presented and the flavours were super. We recommend booking ahead, as every table was taken on the night we visited.

We started with a couple of cocktails. Their menu had a number of tempting sounding cocktails all simply listed by number. I ordered a #2, which was mixed with Yellow Pepper, Tequila, Chartreuse, Smoked Salt, and Chilli Bitters. A delicious cocktail with a little heat on the palate. My partner ordered a #4, which comprise of Gingerbread, Ruby Port, Benedictine, Fluffy Orange and Nutmeg. An interesting blend, which we would happily try again.

To begin we shared the Charcuterie, which includes a mixture of Chicken Liver and Foie Gras Mousse, Duck Rillette, Smoked Duck Breast, 24 Month Ages San Daniele Proscuittio, Milanese, Caprese and Gin Sausages. We were informed that the sausages change depending on what the Chef likes on the market, so expect some seasonal changes. We enjoyed the sharing experience, and the flavours of this dish were superb.

“We had an enjoyable evening of dining.”

For our main courses we ordered the Monkfish Tikka Masala with Basmati Rice Cracker. The Monkfish was superbly presented and had the taste to match. We also ordered the Prime Beef Striploin, with Potato Fondant, Smoked Onion, Weiser Crosnes. The Beef was incredibly tender and delicious, we only have good words to say about this dish.

To finish our evening we ordered Eton Mess, with Cream, Strawberries and Meringue. Eton mess is one of my all time personal favourites, and this more than lived up to expectations. We also ordered the Sticky Toffee Pudding, with Vanilla Ice Cream and Caramel. Another superb example of a classic dessert, with a little added flair and presentation to set this apart. Our chosen wine for the evening was Pinot Noir, Dorn, Theulot-juillot, Burgandy, France, 2013. We had an enjoyable evening of dining, and would love to return again in the future.
