I was lucky enough to be taken to one of the private dining rooms this Michelin starred restaurant has to offer. In the heart of Soho, this townhouse is old time, quaint and the courses just kept on coming!

5 courses and many amuse bouche tasters, there were definitely some clear highlights. The bread basket and the beetroot butter were absolutely deelish and the ‘tomarrto tarrteelet’ (spoken just like the waiter) were the best of the beginning.

Tomato Tartlets & Gruyere Puffs

Olive Focaccia Bread

Bread Basket

(left to right) Beetroot Butter, Seaweed Butter & Lard

 

Starter: Grilled Scottish Scallops (Fricasee of Broad Beans & Girolles, Sauce Vierge)

The Morel Risotto (2nd course, after starters) was rich and creamy, so good! The salmon was cooked amazingly well, however the asparagus that accompanied it was a little mushy.

Morel Risotto (Veal Jus & Parmesan Reggiano)

Wild Salmon Slowly Cooked in Butter Milk (White Asparagus & Hazelnut, Fish Sauce)

A king of a dessert (literally) described by the staff as ‘a fancy kit kat’ was that and so much more, rich but not too much, oozing, but not too much, crispy, but not too much and gluttonous (but not too much!)

Golden Louis XV (Crunchy Praline)

Petit Fours (Dark Chocolate Truffle, Turkish Delight, Rosewater Marshmallow)

Rate: 4(.2)

    There are 9 photos here – which means it must have been something of a feast! Looks fabulous – tempted by the seaweed lard…
