But non-fishy people will still rejoice…as I ate my way through the Nordic deliciousness, I could not decide if the cardamom buns, the sheeps’ milk yogurt with cloudberry compote, or the rye bread and avocado was my favourite thing. Oh! Or the Swedish potato pancakes which were exceptionally good.
I was comped the meal – I’ve been doing a little work with the Crown Estate and St James’s Market but it’s hard to hide incompetence in the kitchen and in service at breakfast and I feel fully confident that the deliciousness will prevail whether or not one is signing the bill. Although on that note I must warn you that this is definitely a joint where it is best if someone else is picking up the tab. It turns out that Nordic deliciousness does not come cheap.
Until the 9 July there will be celebrations to mark the official opening of StJames’s Market, including live performances from musicians curated for Classic FM by Classical Pop Ups, exclusive activities and promotions from Jigsaw, Aspinal of London, and cycling brand Assos, as well as a bar pop-up throughout the week from St James’s Market’s restaurants and cafés including Veneta, Aquavit, Ikoyi and Anzu.
