As I haven't done one of these for a while, I'm going to have a bash and say it sounds like Paul Merrett at The Greenhouse because of the use of spices.

A difficult one in response. I can tell you that it is a very new UK restaurant :

Amuse of watermelon and feta soup

Ravioli of Potatoes & Goats Cheese, Watercress Puree, Chives and Baby Leeks

Slowly Cooked Blade of Beef, Horseradish Apple, Buttered Cabbage & Girolle Mushrooms

Creme Brulee of Lavender Honey with Pistachio, Almond, Apricot & Almond Ice Cream

You are correct!

(I take it that you've been then, or did you just get the menu faxed over?)

....and over to you.

Okay. This one looks indentikit. There must be hundreds of places that do this. Well yes, but there's a clear clue here.

Buffalo chicken wings.

Chop steak (off menu).

Brownie a la mode.

But of course. THe clue being the off menu chop steak. One of their little eccentricites, becoming now rather studied. All that said, I still like it very much. A comfortable pair of old shoes. It was one of the first places I went to regularly with my parents from the age of 10 or so onwards, and tomorrow night I'll be going there after the theatre with my wife for my birthday.

Still the best place for a caesar salad in London, and, given the ubiquity of appalling attempts at it, that's no small reccomendation.

back to you LML
