The great news is that Heritage Soho, Soho’s first-alpine inspired restaurant, has opened in the heart of central London.
Taking their ingredients from artisan producers in Switzerland as well as local suppliers in England, the Heritage Soho team have a Switzerland a passion to create incomparable flavours and much loved Alpine food favourites.
Now you can dine in a spectacular spot, enjoying both classic dishes from the Alps but with a contemporary twist, at this stunning new restaurant and bar.
The main star of any alpine restaurant, the Cheese Fondue, is made in the traditional Swiss way, moitié-moitié, using a blend of Vacherin Fribourgeois and Gryère. The cheese is of course sourced from Switzerland and satisfy the demands of all cheese lovers. Served with side dishes of fresh baby potatoes, cubed ciabatta bread and picked cornichons you’ll have the perfect items for dipping. If you are a truffle fan, for £4.50 per person, we serve a version infused with freshly ground truffle.
Besides classic fondues the à la carte menu boasts a range of alpine flavours to enjoy with classic raclette another cheese delight to tuck into. There’s also a range of quality steaks in a variety of cuts including sirloin, ribeye, fillet and T bone which can be paired with the housemade sauces of blue cheese, Pepercorn, Bèarnance or bone marrow, to create a dish that truly divine. Other highlights include the breaded camembert, pan-fried trout and crispy duck breast.
Cheese fondue is the main draw in Heritage Soho’s three course bottomless brunch menu, which is probably the best in London! Starters include a choice of three delicious röstis. Another Alpine favourite, these are freshly grated potatoes in a pancake-like shape which are shallow fried and topped with your choice of three combinations. The Rösti Benedict is a bed of smoked bacon topped with a perfectly poached egg and hollandaise sauce, the Rösti royale with smoked trout, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce and the rösti florentine which is a bed of spinach topped with a poached egg.
If you visit on Sunday you can enjoy a hearty Sunday Roast option as part of the Bottomless Brunch menu. Opt for a Roast for a main instead of the fondue and you won’t be disappointed.
