I had an excellent meal at AD last night. Service was spot-on throughout so no complaints there. I had been braced for bland décor but actually thought it was lovely. The subtle uses of slabs of steel and curtains of tiny fibre-optic lights gave a sense of refined, exquisite plushness.
My starter of truffled carpaccio of scallops was good but my main of turbot fillet surrounded by a deep red wine sauce was unusual and excellent. The Praline chocolate dessert was also mouth-watering and each dish had enough of an unusual edge for all my foodie companions to be delighted.
Amuse bouches and bon-bons were flowing throughout the meal and were delicious. The device of cutting the mint freshly of a trolley of plants was a good talking point and the tea was genuinely fresher than anything I had tasted.
Overall – All great and definitely worth checking out, but it is absurdly expensive and that will stop be going back. Tasting menus at £115 – £175 with wine pairings at £80 are mad, but I guess someone will pay it.
