Trinity is a Michelin-starred neighbourhood restaurant in the heart of Clapham, headed up by chef-patron Adam Byatt. This elegant and highly respected restaurant also boasts a more relaxed space upstairs (Trinity Upstairs, which has a Michelin Bib Gourmand award) and Trinity Outside - a terrace restaurant in front of the restaurant, which opens during the summer. Adam also teaches at culinary schools and is currently chef director of Brown's Hotel in Mayfair, where he oversees flagship restaurant Charlie's.
Trinity is a broadly modern European restaurant, but dishes particularly showcase Adam's background in classical French cooking as well as his love of Italy and the Mediterranean. Meals at Trinity are four courses, with a pre-starter, starter, main and dessert, but diners can opt for three courses, or five courses with a cheese course. Inside Trinity is a balance between relaxed and smart - there are smart white tablecloths and the restaurant has a certain elegance about it, but service and dress code are more relaxed and informal.
Your first course at Trinity might be a dressed globe artichoke, beef tartare with pickled mushrooms and caviar or cured halibut with salt-baked white beetroot, ginger and lime. With whetted appetites, you will then be served up something a little heartier for your second course. This might be a ricotta raviolo with egg yolk, wild garlic and buttered leeks or strozzapreti with new season morels and aged parmesan. A non-pasta option might be warm semi-smoked salmon with beurre blanc, capers and dill or quail pissaladiere with oyster mushroom bolognese and truffle sabayon.
Mains at Trinity are often lavish, celebrating meat, seafood or vegetables with perfectly-matched accompaniments. A meat option might be pot roast chicken with leek hearts, morels and salt-baked turnip, veal loin with Jerusalem artichokes, hazelnuts and truffle celeriac or spiced Anjou pigeon with preserved lemon, dates and green olive. In terms of seafood, you might see fresh Cornish cod, paired with white sprouting broccoli, mussels and lemon.
Finally, finish with a decadent dessert like a salted caramel custard tart, a selection of artisanal cheeses, or an amalfi lemon souffle with beeswax ice cream.
