I've been here a few times, and each time I do I'm convinced, or rather my view is confirmed, that this is the best cooked food in Clapham. And we're spoiled for choice round here too! But this place is something else entirely.
I went with my friend to this place on a Saturday night and were seated on the bench in front of the kitchen, which is a very fun place to sit! We went for the 6 course taster menu with matching wine and were really not disappointed with any of the course.
To start was a lovely amuse bouche consisting of two croquettes which were really quite delicious!
The starters were the pumpkin cromesquis and the seabass ceviche. I'm a big fan of pumpkin, it just screams autumn at you, and this was such a wonderful flavour. The seabass was also delicious, it's also one of my favourite fishes and I don't recall ever having it in a ceviche, so this was a new and delightful experience for me!
The mains were the stand out courses Sea Bream and lamb. The sea bream was perfect, really crispy golden skin and the fregola really set it off! As for the lamb, wow, delicious and the jus that accompanied it, along with the celeriac was just what the dish needed to set it off!
Desert was the booziest dessert I've ever had, a Bab au Rhum, treat this one with caution! Following that was an apple tarte tatin which was just the end the meal needed.
We had the matching wine pairings and the standout was a white Burgundy st Veran Domaine de la Creuze Noir 2014 which I am now on the lookout for!
My only criticism isn't even a criticism, the taster menu is smaller portions than the a la carte, but it was still slightly too much for me, but only slightly!
I'm already looking forward to coming back here
