Come 10pm each evening, diners visiting either restaurant could find themselves on the receiving end of a case of Louis Roederer champagne, £300 to spend at globally renowned McQueens Flowers or a family portrait shot by renowned photographer Adrian Houston.Also up for grabs is a private tour of Kew Gardens by its former Head of Arboretum, Tony Kirkham MBE, VMH.
Bar Manager Andrew Pengelly has put his incredible mixology skills to great use creating a new cocktail, Ten-abulous, a unique twist on the Moscow Mule. Citron vodka, Amontillado sherry, St Germain elderflower, fresh lime juice and Old Jamaica ginger beer are infused with pomegranate (a favourite of founder Arkady Novikov). Topped up with prosecco, the drink is then served in a “podstakannik”, a traditional Russian tea glass holder, branded with the Novikov logo.
Legendary Russian restaurateur Arkady Novikov launched his first overseas venture in London’s Mayfair back in December 2011. A decade later, Novikov Restaurant & Bar has managed the exceptional accomplishment of maintaining its reputation as one of the capital’s most successful restaurants - despite the fiery competition of London’s culinary scene.
Innovative as always, Novikov has constantly refined its food & drink offering, whilst collaborating with like-minded brands such as Blue Marlin. It also helped to popularise the “garden to plate” concept, with its very own market garden in the grounds of Suffolk’s Brent Eleigh Hall.
Novikov is looking forward to another equally memorable ten years…. and beyond.
