We ordered the:
- Asparagus, Comte custard and Cured Egg Yolk
- Broadbeans, Peas and Stracciatella
- Venison Tartare with Saltbush
Presentation of the food was flawless. The vegetables looked fresh and vibrant. The tartare had the colours of Autumn. As we leave Autumn and enter into Spring, our food choices were a perfect representation of the changing seasons and I loved it!
The Comte custard was like a cheese sauce and the clean asparagus flavours were a perfect accompaniment with the cured egg yolk gratings adding richness and depth. The peas and broadbeans were like Springtime on a plate with the soft, milky tang of the mild Stracciatella.
The venison tartare did take its time to reach our table but we didn't feel the need to chase but one of the wait staff noticed and followed up. Well seasoned and spiced it was a good way to end our "snacking" experience.
I loved sitting outside and enjoyed the drawn out pace of food and drink. I'm not sure what it would be like inside - probably a bit more cosy as the tables look quite close together. I'm quite keen to get to know Marion better though so I'm sure I'll find out!
