However, I've certainly missed the open space and panoramic views of Southbank and its restaurants.
Breslin is a relatively new addition to the strip of eateries on the left bank. In fact, for location purposes, it's right near the bar called Left Bank.
~10 of us came here for dinner on a Friday night and we were seated at a table near the entrance. The smoky smell of BBQ meats permeated the venue and we all greedily sniffed the air. On J's recommendation, we decided to share 4kg's of ribs as the starter and then each add more dishes of our own choosing. A and I decided to order a mixed entree platter with 3 different things, and the prawns and soft shell crab. This was perfect as A chivalrously offered to finish whatever I couldn't, which meant that I was able to sample a bit of everything that I wanted but not feel guilty about any leftover food.
The pork and veal meatballs were my favorite, closely followed by the pork belly. The soft shell crab and prawn combo was alright with the soft shell crab being better than the prawns. I also didn't mind the chicken wings which provided an almost refreshing contrast to the other heavier meats.
