London Bistro Dining at Ducksoup

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Duck Soup

Inspired by the neighborhood restaurants of France, this charming bistro-style eatery sits in the heart of Soho—home to a glamorous media scene, and London’s most vibrant district for theater and nightlife.

The restaurant name is enigmatic—it may be a nod to the eponymous Marx brothers’ movie, as the exclusive Groucho Club sits next door.

The small, eclectic menu changes daily and features traditional cooking from across Europe. Dishes are prepared using the best seasonal ingredients, and served as soon as they are ready, encouraging you to share. Expect simple, fresh flavors like raw seabass with orange and fennel, a salad of broad beans, radish and crème fraîche, and Italian favorites like vitello tonnato—cold roast veal with a creamy sauce, capers, anchovies and tuna.

The wine list is short but skillfully chosen, favoring natural and biodynamic wines from small producers. A vintage record player provides the music, and in keeping with the informal spirit, guests are encouraged to bring their own vinyl.
