Jikoni, the much loved restaurant in the heart of Marylebone from chef and restaurateur Ravinder Bhogal, has launched their new Spring terrace. Set across the sprawling pavements of Blandford Street, the heated and covered terrace comfortably seats up to 30 people whatever the weather, offering the perfect pitstop to indulge in a selection of globally inspired sharing plates.
Reminiscent of Ravinder’s early memories of Kenya, the vibrant terrace set beneath a marigold awning, brings a slice of the inside out with brightly coloured Ceraudo chairs and tables adorned with hand block printed tablecloths and patterned napkins. For those looking to stave off the evening chill, tall heaters, organic wool blankets and hot water bottles filled on request ensure diners enjoy their experience regardless of what the season throws at them.
The terrace menu borrows from Jikoni’s vegan and vegetarian sister brand Comfort and Joy with vibrant, globally inspired dishes such as Sweetcorn and Lime Leaf Fritters, Crispy Aubergine in a Sichuan Caramel with Sticky Garlic Rice; Pumpkin and Sweetcorn Swahili Curry and Dhal Dhokli. Guests with a sweet tooth can indulge in Jikoni’s puddings such as the Banana Cake with Miso Butterscotch, Peanut Brittle and Ovaltine Kulfi which has gained a cult following and as such has been a permanent feature on the menu since opening. The same menu will be available for brunch at the weekends.
The new Jikoni menu will be unveiled when the restaurant fully reopens on the 18th May. The popular brunch menu will also resume at the weekends.
