Keith started with a more refined Foie Gras with Lima beans, wild rice, and dashi. It had lots of umami, especially with the broth.
For my main dish, I ordered the Roasted Cod with mushroom ravioli, sage, and truffle velouté. The fish was a bit under cooked to my liking, but it was a solid meaty piece, and the ravioli was delicate.
Keith enjoyed the Braised Lamb with Haggis sauce, sweet potato puree, mashed potatoes, cream, and fried broccoli. The meat was not as tender as expected, but it went well with the combination of all the ingredients. Keith is not really a fan of sweet potato, but enjoyed this version.
Overall, we had a nice first meal in London. Our expectations were a bit high going in, with the Michelin rating. However, I liked the local vibe of the restaurant, which reminded me of many of our favorite local spots back home in DC. It offers a nice change of pace from the typical London pubs. The menu changes very often, and there is a chef's table experience available downstairs.
