Pivot, Covent Garden – Review

Pivot is an intimate restaurant overlooking Covent Garden. The burnt orange walls and leather seats frame the small room that seats its customers in a small but well-formed space, with an attached area giving room to sit adjacent to the open kitchen. What seems to be a converted townhouse, the space sits a storey up, with the restrooms at the top of the winding stairs.

The menu is limited but well formed, although having sampled the Dressed Summer Courgette starter, it would be nice to see more veggie options that offered a more generous portion. The Cured Meat Platter delivered a good portion of meat, with a deliciously tasty chutney and an array of pickled condiments.

We started with a bottle of the Vinho Verde, my summer favourite, a crisp white with a light fizz, it’s a lovely summer tipple. The starters were followed by two outstanding mains: Free Range English Chicken and Pan Roast Seabass both of which were generous in portion and flavour. The Chicken was succulent and tasty served with perfectly cooked asparagus and a very moreish mushroom and tarragon cream sauce.

The Seabass had a crisp skin and was flakey and soft. We were especially impressed by the Charred Hispi Cabbage, with bread crumbs and chilli butter it had that Sunday roast vegetable feel, tasting like brussel sprouts, we couldn’t leave a single bite! The other sides of Buttery Mash and Dauphinoise Potatoes were equally as moreish, and brought out the flavours of the chicken and seabass.

With little room left, we ordered the Sticky Toffee Pudding to share. Warm and soft, with a jug of extra sticky sauce to boot! The custard was missing, but the vanilla ice-cream complimented the pudding well, and we washed it down with a Negroni, which certainly packed a punch!

Overall, we were very impressed by the flavours of the food and the quality of the produce, I just wished there was a few more veg options on the snacks. But overall, we’d definitely go back, and I’d love to try the Sunday Lunch!
