To celebrate its first year, Kensington Church Street eatery Dirty Bones has introduced an improved new menu of American comfort food classics, conceived by the group’s Creative Development Chef, Ross Clarke. It’s not at all that far removed from the restaurant’s existing menu of fried chicken, burgers and hot dogs, though diners can expect some innovative twists to junk food classics, such as The Mac Daddy — a 6oz house burger topped with pulled beef short rib, mac & cheese and Dirty Bones BBQ sauce, served with Dirty Bones pickles — and the The Dirty Dog, dressed with BBQ pulled pork, crispy bacon and jalapeño cheese. It’s not all artery clogging; the chilli and avocado salad with charred avocado, red chilli, Dirty Bones San Pelligrino dressing is a decidedly more healthy option that can always be followed up with one of the decadent new desserts, such as the Coffee Donutini (espresso martini with fresh sugared donut). We’re especially excited by the new range of daily specials, such as the Bloody Dirty Hangover, priced at £15 and available on Sundays, and which includes the Mac Daddy, dirty fries and a Dirty Mary cocktail or shake. Perfect for the morning after the night before.
