I've now eaten in all Jason Atherton's restaurants in London and very lucky I am too!
I just simply cannot leave without thinking I've has a bloody good feed. Uncomplicated and not overly original in it's ingredients (not that, that's a bad thing) but executed perfectly. Never have I had a course and not exclaimed with an mmmm! and genuinely meant it.
What I also must comment on is the set lunch menus. The problem with these things is that you always end up with an uninspiring piece of chicken and any other dishes that cost the restaurant the least amount, and leave the diner feeling rather deflated… not the case at Social eating house (or Pollen st social). Few choices but great dishes non the less. I had purple sprouting broccoli, anchovies and almonds. Packed with flavour and would highly recommend. I had pollock with a melted cheese and serrano ham croquette, forget those tiny pieces of ham, this was jammed with rolls of the stuff.This came with almost a lemon posset style quennelle, both refreshing and different.
My only comments would be, these places get extremely loud, perfect with friends but maybe a little too loud for a lunch meeting like me. My main was a tad on the tepid side but the restaurant was extremely busy, even for a Tuesday lunch.
Did this detract from the experience? Absolutely not. Would I recommend? Absolutely.
