Oh dear, another celebrity chef that is coasting along on his reputation and the fact that celebrities dont know their arse from their elbows when it comes to good food and amazing flavours. The only dish to knock our socks off was the porcini with rocket and parmesan: one of those simple dishes where each ingredient was at its peak and it was sublime! The other dishes were bland at best but one dish stood out for sheer horribleness: the seabass with artichoke. On the menu it said white wine sauce, fair enough, that goes with fish but it turned up with a tomato sauce. Sorry, I dont believe tomatoes and fish have been good bedfellows since 1988! Something was off, the tomatoes had a horrible sour taste, the artichokes were horrendously lemony/vinegary and I wanted to send it back but my boyfriend being oh-so-polite English insisted on giving me his dish instead.
We got there at 715, were told the specials, one of which was grouse, and ten minutes later when we wanted to order it, they said they didnt have any!?! Selling out of a dish that early on a Friday night is very poor. The rest of the service could not be faulted and the cosiness of the tables was another plus but hardly points enough to ever persuade me to give them my money again.
