Dishes are exactingly prepared and plated in what could be described as modern French. Light warm scallop mousse of sublime texture was memorable, as was quail ('tis the season) both sensationally executed. Heartier braised beef ticked boxes too. Jus (plural) are this chef's forte. He also ensures that food is served to the temperature demanded by the ingredients to deliver food at its best. Wines have not failed to please yet either. Lunch is good value too, but slightly negative for me, it is just another small but formal hotel dining space. Their event on the 28th of this month is interestingly show-casing truffle, presumably Italian and not French, as reflected by solely Italian wine selection, but alas I can't make that potentially truffle ‘paradiso’ date. Precise high-end dining is achieved, probably helped by the fact covers are limited to 26 – theoretically a very manageable number.
