No197 Chiswick Fire Station

We are back in London and its back to work time. Although it is still really warm here, you can feel the crisp autumn breeze starting to filter in (except today it feels rather tropical with high humidity and 27 c temperature). Autumn is on its way and it makes me very happy.

On Sunday, I headed to our old neighbourhood to meet with a friend and check out a cracking new brunch spot over in West London. No197 Chiswick Fire station. Chiswick Fire Station is a hip contemporary neighbourhood bar and restaurant, located in the old firehouse building on the high road. The vibe was relaxed, service was excellent and the food delicious. You can pop in anytime from breakfast to a late night drink and have a proper interiors feast on top of it all. The No197 has seriously gorgeous decor.

But the cosy pink suede sofas took the first price. And the cacti.

Snazzy little tables and succulents.

The food was fresh, deliciously cooked, with a focus on well-sourced ingredients. We loved that the menu had a special section for small sharing dishes.

I went for truffle mac n’ cheese and aubergine & sweet potato croquettes with sun blushed tomato, basil and feta – both delightful.

My friend ordered the No 197 Club Sandwich. Sourdough toast topped with grilled chicken, smoked bacon, avocado, roasted tomatoes and a side of basil mayo. She said it was the best club sandwich she has had.

We were dreaming of having the ricotta pancakes with blueberries. But just couldn’t after all that mac n’ cheese. There is always next time.

    That looks like such a nice place to hang out! And I have no idea what bearnaise sauce is, but it looks yummy!

      Béarnaise sauce is a very rich and delicious French sauce with tarragon. Unusual with fries, often served with steak.
