ICONIC Soho restaurant 40 Dean Street is celebrating the festive season with the launch of their delicious Christmas menu.
For over twenty years the Italian restaurant, 40 Dean Street, has been captivating those in the know with their friendly service and delicious Italian food.
Owned by charismatic restauranteur Nima Safaei the independent restaurant has been the best-kept secret in Soho offering signature dishes including lobster ravioli and seafood linguine with freshly made pasta.
The restaurant is popular with the likes of Brad Pitt and Rupert Everett as well as the eclectic mix of customers who live and work in vibrant Soho.
With its warm, inviting atmosphere and thoughtfully crafted, well-priced dishes it is a magnet for locals and visitors alike at any time of year. But there’s no denying this beloved Soho mainstay is particularly magical at Christmas.
This year the team, led by Nima, known as a convivial, charming and much-loved local legend – has pulled out all the seasonal stops with a fabulously festive three-course set menu.
Diners can choose from an array of authentic and hearty family-style dishes all created using the freshest available seasonal produce.
Dive straight into the starters, which include such moreish offerings as citrus-cured salmon with rocket, pickled shallot & capers dressed with a tomato vinaigrette and deep-fried brie with cranberry jam.
Onto the mains and whilst traditionalists will no doubt be tucking into the sous vide stuffed turkey, wrapped in Parma ham & served with all the trimmings or perhaps the fillet of venison, poached pears & cauliflower puree with a blackberry & chestnut gravy, non-conformists may prefer the ravioli of lobster, filled with fresh lobster meat in a shellfish & brandy sauce.
Rounding off this sumptuous spread are classic desserts like chocolate fondant with vanilla ice cream and vanilla panna cotta topped with homemade mixed berry compote.
And who could resist 40 Dean Street’s twist on the traditional in the irresistible form of panettone pudding served with rum & raisin cream?
The really good news is that this fantastic feast costs just £59.90 per head, including a welcome glass of Prosecco!

Served in an intimate and relaxed setting, with velvet seating, marble tables and atmospheric lighting, 40 Dean Street’s Christmas repast is perfect for friends and family, company get-togethers and weary shoppers looking for an oasis of calm away from the hustle and bustle of London’s West End.
