Nothing better in London in my opinion – i wont bore everyone with details but we had all the menu highlights which have been raved about on the web. Starters, we had the meat fruit and the salmagundy (chicken oysters). The meat fruit was like nothing id ever seen, plus the creamiest chicken liver pate EVER. The salmagundy which was like a very tasty chicken salad – again, delicious, and other restaurants could learn from this and put this kind of salad on the menu – sure to be popular.
For the main, we shared the rib of beef. The service was excellent and the waiter explained the cuts on offer, and offered other cuts if this didnt please! At £75 for two for the main, it was expensive but we both agreed, it was a delicious cut of meat, and completely melt in the mouth.
For pudding, we shared the Tipsy Cake, which was a type of brioche which had been soaked in a sweet pineapple type juice. Im not a fruit fan but this was to die for. i noted Ashley Palmer Watts floating around and got a smile from him, though the famous nitrogen ice cream machine he was wheeling around only seemed destined for the chefs table, sadly.
The bill with a couple of cocktails came to £140 for two – bearing in mind we shared the pudding and main – so not cheap. Bookings are hard to come by but id recommend calling up as we got a Sunday lunch on the offchance. Hestons place is the best in town, and deserved of all the great reviews. Fantastic!
