Dinner and Dancing at The Piano Works, Farringdon

I was very kindly invited to review dinner at The Piano Works in Farringdon in return for a review.  However, as always, all opinions are entirely my own.

The Piano Works has certainly had its fair share of mentions on this blog, as I’m quite the fan, from super fun brunches to just being a place to head to for live music, so it won’t come as a surprise that I’ve returned for dinner!

I visited The Piano Works with my friend, Emma, on that heat filled Thursday so I was glad to learn that the air con was turned up to the max, so we were quite comfy dining there.

I decided to have a completely vegan meal that evening as the menu had been updated since my last visit.

The vegan starter option was sweet potato tostada with black beans, charred corn salsa and vegan cheese which was so good. The portion was a really generous and the vegan cheese was some of the best I’ve had. I’d happily have this as a bigger portion for a main course as I enjoyed it so much.

Emma ordered the Buttermilk Fried Chicken served with house California style BBQ sauce that she devoured! Again, this was a decent-sized portion and could work well as a sharing-style dish should you want a lighter start to dinner.

I asked our waitress which of the vegan main courses she recommended and I went with that for my order. That was the Buddha Bowl that was made up from mixed green leaves, watermelon radish, asparagus, aubergine, green courgette, red pepper, golden beetroot, sweet potato, avocado, cherry tomato, artichoke, quinoa and vegan dressing. The portion was so big that I didn’t actually manage to finish the bowl but there were so many good flavours that I was actually a little disappointed I didn’t eat it all!

Emma went to the opposite end of the spectrum with a Hereford 28 day dry-aged Rib Eye steak with fries with her choice of Bearnaise sauce. Again, the portion was a little too big for Emma to finish and we’re blaming the obscenely hot weather for that as we had both lost our appetites a little, which was super annoying!

Two courses range from £21 per person to £32 per person dependant on the day and time you visit, and three courses start at £26.50 per person to £37 per person, again, dependant on the day and time you visit. But the best bit about the menu, the option to add bottomless sparkling (Prosecco, Italian Pink Sparkling Wine or Aperol Spritz is available for £20 per person.

If you haven’t been to The Piano Works, you won’t know about the awesome live music they have every night where they play only songs picked by the audience. We picked such a variety of songs from Britney Spears to Luther Vandross, from Inner Circle to Blondie and a lot of our choices got played so you can betcha life we were dancing in our seats whilst eating!

The Piano Works has such a great party atmosphere that it’s perfect for your next girls night out!
