In all honesty when the food looks this good it does make my job a lot easier. It looked so impressive that myself and Mrs B braved the packed commuter traffic last Friday evening and went for dinner as (paying) clients. My god was it worth it. Easily the best none Michelin star meal (along with La Salita in Valencia) of the year. It was a master-class in fine dining that was superior to a few over-hyped restaurants I can think of but won't mention here. For me flavour is paramount and that is what chef Josh Overington's food is all about, as it should be.
I shot quite a few dishes I didn't eat and vice versa.
I shot and ate this one, it was divine; L'Arpege Egg. From the beginning we knew we were in for a night of very fine food.
Nasturtium ice-cream with winter squash velouté. Beautiful and surprising.
The desserts were very strong too including the Thai Sorbet with coconut and the Warm Chocolate Mousse, sea salt ice-cream, pepper tuile & Corsican olive oil (pictured below).
