Bob Bob Ricard‘s style of luxury may be old-fashioned, but there’s nothing stuffy about the upper-crust cavorting inside this English-Russian hot spot. Is it over the top? Perhaps. But for an unforgettably elegant date night, there are few more memorable options in Soho. Stride past blue curtains to the opulent reception area, where a sharply-dressed host will guide you and your date to a romantic booth. Ensconced in supple textures of black velvet tied back with golden ropes, begin your feast with a sampler of chilled Russian vodka and caviar—a fittingly imperial initiation to an evening of finery. Move on to succulent British classics like rosemary-roasted lamb medallions and Aberdeenshire chateaubriand with béarnaise sauce. If the richness of the food weighs down your palate, look for a small button housed in the booth marked “Press for Champagne” and press it. Within moments, a bubbly-bearing waiter graces your table with glasses of house champagne. If this effervescent amenity stimulates your sweetie’s sweet tooth, look no further than the signature dessert, “Chocolate Glory.” Loaded with several styles of chocolate treats and brightened with notes of passion fruit jelly and fresh raspberry, the marriage of sweet and savory emphasizes how the restaurant’s many flashy factors meld in harmony.
