After a hectic weekend in London it was the ideal setting to take a step back and enjoy a relaxing meal for two.
The fresh strawberry in the prosecco was a nice touch, if the rest of the menu was delivered with as much thought we were in for a real treat.
Homemade breads with black olive tapenade, olive oil and balsamic teased our tastebuds whilst we studied the culinary delights of a menu that certainly didn’t disappoint.
After changing my mind about 4 times, choices were made and included Free range Cotswold chicken Liver Parfait with shallot tarragon toast and bacon jam – the delicate flavours of this dish blended together perfectly. Pan Seared Scottish North Coast King Scallops with bacon-crumbed cauliflower was the other choice, the scallops were so fresh and tender, the crunchy cauliflower was a complete comparassion to the smooth sauce but both complemented the other
A Trio of Welsh Lamb followed, which included loin, crispy belly and slow cooked shoulder – With deep aromatic flavours and a slight kick to the sauce this was a real delight on the tastebuds. Steak was the other choice and this was cooked exactly as I requested (sorry to any chef’s reading this but I do have a steak well done!) accompanied with a skewer of Portobello mushroom, peppers and oven roasted vegetables – this has to be one of the best steaks I have ever eaten, the vegetables were full of flavours that all blended with each other effortlessly.
The dessert menu was just as varied, but for me there was no choice to make. When I saw the symphony of pistachio my mouth was already watering it certainly didn’t disappoint – The presentation was divine and the texture and flavours of the macaroon, sponge and baklava were all so different from each other yet all combined beautifully. Hubby chose sticky toffee pudding (one of his favourite desserts), again a big hit.
Dessert was washed down (literally) with a glass of Moet & Chandon Champagne, served in vintage champagne glasses (which I always find more elegant than flutes) – The perfect end to a perfect evening.
The whole menu was simply divine; presentation was a work of art, service impeccable and food delicious.
