Thanksgiving at Avenue

Happy Turkey Day our little strawberries!
Today we give thanks for prosecco, mac & cheese and sisterly love - obvs.
Where better to spend it than The Avenue.. a New York style restaurant in St James's.
We were drawn in by the allure of the sharing platter, I mean, who can resist cheesy goodness in a cute little pumpkin? 
We fell in love with the super instagrammable marble topped tables and seriously good looking cocktail selection...

A wine glass centrepiece is our kind of centrepiece

They asked if we would like to peruse the menu. But we knew exactly what we had come for.

Forest on The Roof

This summer, Selfridges rooftop transformed into a seaside getaway 
(see evidence here)
But now that it's getting chillier, windier and rainier
it's time for a change
while we've had to say a sad toodle-pip to vintage salt,
there's a new snuggly restaurant schooching in.

Drum roll please... Selfridges rooftop now has a forest!
(And it's cleverly name forest on the roof)

0870122F-1957-409F-80A9-BB5D10E28AD8

As you would expect
there's plenty of trees/branches/fairy lights 
(it IS a forest after all)

95B6DCCC-A701-4F5B-8D25-3ED431038145

0B6C7F30-24D0-4C43-9486-2FB6C7C1E7BF

the menu is a downright cosy affair
from mushroom risotto to game meatballs and shepards pie
but more on that later...

428F25FC-2E5B-4476-A681-FE0EE3FB1B2C

cocktail are a MUST 
we went for Black Forest and Bubblicious

C2D04528-B4CC-475A-A030-78639620CABD

both totally delish and Autumn appropriate

2DEFF085-405E-4165-AAE6-EEC7D028AC27

oh, more branches because - remember - you're in a forest

C329E469-D544-432F-B9B7-4CA01E0485DA

D23C270B-6E30-41DF-BA3E-025688278D8D

they leave you with an insanely toasty flannel blanket
for those who want to be completely snuggly while eating and drinking

32E397B6-6BDC-4B31-8D8C-C64DEAE91C3F

being the classic ladies that they are
Beth & co were feeling the fish and chips and burger with extra chippies OBVS

1EA5641C-516B-466D-B2EB-ECAB81FF80B1

we'd recommend both but we've gotta say a chica on another table had the shepards pie
and it did look pretty dreamy, just FYI

7BA46AD8-A76C-4905-BB8B-15C34A92ABAA

let's take a second to talk about the dessert.
there were a few items that caught our attention (chocolate forest anyone?)
but it was the honey cheesecake which stole our hearts

C28805A0-ACBD-4499-AA57-07BDE03B694C

JUST LOOK AT IT!!!
dribbled with honeycomb chunks and meringue mushrooms.
yum yum yum yum yum 

0636A971-E69B-4458-92A8-170F722A3FD6

if you're feeling extra adventurous 
there's also an outside section with two cabins 
(blankets TOTALLY required)

096A6DFA-49A9-403D-833A-EA1052BD421D

once you've finished
the express lift handily drops you back by the perfume/cosmetics hall
and when we say handily,
we mean dangerously.
HELLO charlotte tilbury!

81060155-7AC9-44A8-A8D2-BB22262D1864

we predict this winter we'll be spending abnormal amounts of time in the forest
(the restaurant, not the place with lots of trees).
