A rather disappointing lunch. There are few things in restaurants that put off more than over complicated dishes that don't deliver. The Modern Pantry has a long list of them on their menu. The veal chop was supposed to come with some sort of excitingly cooked kale but the famously green veg never materialised on the plate. My duck breast promised wonders with its curry yogourt but the sauce frankly tasted as it was straight off a jar. The meat was rubbery and flavourless.The food reached us lukewarm (my wife's) and cold (mine). I have two suggestions for the Modern Paintry: keep it simple and review the menu.
