Biggie Smalls Windsor
There’s a stronger focus on drinks here. Delia partnered with Four Pillars to create seasonal gins especially for Biggie Smalls. In spring, your Negroni is made with gin infused with pomegranate, cloudy apple and spiced syrup. Beers on tap are by Brick Lane Brewing Co and there’s also a small selection of cans.
While the music’s been turned up, design firm Technē has turned the colour palette down. Where Smith Street’s walls are bright and yellow-tiled, Windsor’s are moody and dark green.
The space used to be a picture-framing shop, and that’s acknowledged with 35-millimetre snapshots of life in ’90s New York set in opulent gold-leaf frames. The decor is rounded out with wood furnishings, brass finishes and a black-and-white checked floor.
The kebab menu is largely unchanged, with a couple of additions. The ODB is a new off-menu wrap exclusive to Windsor, packed with shrimp shu mai, fried prawns and pickled ginger slaw, slathered with hoisin mayo and chilli jam.
