After taking a seat at one the plump seats in the curved hall, we take a look throught the Feast On London set menu

Foie gras & chicken liver parfait practically calls out to us, and we oblige by ordering it as a starter. Arriving in a repurposed jam jar, the silky smooth foie gras is thoughtfully topped with a crunchy granola mix. After taking a couple of shots we set to work scooping up the buttery foie gras and smearing it thickly onto the waiting brioche. It’s a general portion that goes a long way.

We also try out the much more polite salt baked beetroot starter. It’s a whisper compared to the foie gras but, it nevertheless works a treat paired with labneh, walnut and basil.

Moving on to mains we opt for a sprightly spring vegetable risotto, grass green and served with smoked ricotta. The gentle citrus edge is just right on this warm April day, and keeps the risotto from being too heavy.

We also try the seared sea bream, which is curved around crushed jersey potatoes, courgette and romesco.

Dessert and final thoughts…

As lovely as the preceding courses have been, it’s the dessert menu that provides the real showstoppers.

We love the dark and brilliantly rich chocolate cremeux with orange sorbet and crushed pistachio, and share it like good friends should. A banana caramel soft serve, whilst not being as shockingly rich, is just as good, served with salted peanut brittle.
