With the paint still drying Chiswell Street Dining Rooms opened their doors and welcomed us with great enthusiasm. We ordered a selection of cocktails and then were shown to our table. I had the scallops with samphire to start, these were beautifully presented on their shells with a light creamy sauce. I'm not overly keen on cream so could have had less sauce, but overall the Scallops were delicious. My best friend chose the Fois Gras, which she loved, but she commented that the bread it was served on was a little soggy, which made the dish seem very rich. Her boyfriend went for the Snail Pie, which was divine. I was lucky enough to sample a bite, and although a little salty, the combination of bacon and snails created a wonderful flavour.
For main couse I chose the Lemon Sole with some “Love Chips”, these were delicious and went very well with the fish. The Cod was chosen by my best friend for mains and the boys went for veal and lamb, both of which were boy portions! On the presentation side the lamb and cod would have been awarded full marks whereas the Veal and the Sole looked quite lonely on their own, but all of the mains were very tasty. We chose a Brazilian Merlot to go with our dishes, and this was delicious and worked very well. It wouldn't have been my first choice from the wine list but it was a very good wine.
For dessert I shared the Tarte Tatin which, as it explained on the menu, was a portion for two. The apples were cooked perfectly and the pastry melted in the mouth. The boys went for the Valhronna Chocolate Tarte and the Chocolate Fondant. Thankfully we decided to share a bite of each pudding, so if I was to choose again I would defnitely order the Chocolate Tarte, I had food envy, it really was fabulous! Overall a super evening and I will definitely be going back.
