Fitzroy Dolls

About Fitzroy Dolls

The delightfully-named Fitzroy Dolls is the belle of the dining ball at Hotel Russell, a magnificent terracotta Grade 2 listed building close to Covent Garden. A predominance of marble and natural light lend a fresh, airy feel to this traditional dining experience. Grand pillars lead the eye to the room's focal point; a grand Victorian marble fireplace. A generous menu features an eclectic selection of dishes. You might start with carpaccio of beef showered in pecorino shavings, then move on to a main course of seared yellow fin tuna with pickled vegetable shavings and tender squid noodles. To finish, may we recommend a baked chocolate brownie with marmalade ice cream. Smartly-dressed staff provide a consistently friendly, chatty service. There is a wide selection of cocktails.
