Main Courses £12.95-£19.95



CircusOpened mid January 2010, Circus is a hip eaterie serving Pan-American cuisine and boasting an interior design by Tom Dixon. More than just a dining experience, Circus - as the name suggests - has all the fun of the fair with live acts entertaining you while you eat. Staff and diners can ultimately join in to become part of the entertainment which takes place around the bar and restaurant. Enter through the secret black steel foyer and you'll find a hidden world of smoke and mirrors - as well as an interesting list of cocktails. If this all sounds a bit surreal, it's mean to be; the style is based on the Surrealist art movement with shell chandeliers and a dancer's pole in the lounge. The menu of Pan-American dishes includes choices of soft shell crab with coriander and corn salsa, red and golden beet salad with ricotta and hazelnuts, or smoked chipotle and tamarind chicken wings for starters. For main courses you can move on to baby-back ribs with barbecue sauce or Mexican spice rubbed pork tenderloin. Desserts are all-American favourites like churros, coconut cream pie and aweet tamales. But it's the entertainment which really is the unique selling point of Circus, full details of the acts are currently under wraps - you'll just have to go there to find out what's in store.
