Chie's Birthday

Posted on 2011/05/07 09:42:03 (May 2011).

[Wednesday 4th May 2011]
Went for dinner at Sketch for Chie's birthday. Here's my review:

Enjoyed the experience - really fantastic service, plus weird and wonderful decor. Undoubtedly London's quirkiest Michelin star restaurant. We were greeted at the front door by a lovely chap who was very warm and welcoming, and escorted us up to the first floor where we'd be dining in the library and lecture room. We ordered the tasting menus - I had the vegetarian tasting menu and my wife the regular one. The food was good - although I'm not sure I was wildly blown away by it. I did particularly like the course of morels and asparagus - a generous presence of morels which were very flavoursome. The dessert course was also good - about five dishes each, a really interesting assortment of things. The other courses though were perhaps a bit less memorable. Still, the overall experience was good, albeit rather expensive (the two tasting menus plus a bottle of Champagne came to over 300).
