just wrapped up a week of dining in London
By far the most interesting, inventive and by far the best food preparations were At Pollen Street Social
Incredibly knowledgable wine service paired an Australian Pinot with a salty savory pork belly with pork rinds and just the perfect sweet carrots to creation a taste sensation second to none
A starter of pop in your mouth fresh tomato soup with a crab waffle drowning within was perfect. A Alsace early harvest white accompanied and accented the sweetness with a heady sweet nose that belied the oaky depth of the non sweet deep white wine
And our dining partner had a cote de bouef with a side salad and triple fried potatoes that was a work of art to behold
The kitschy dessert bar actually worked much better than we thought possible, the treats from the pastry chef were nice but the view of Jason and his team working the line behind a sliding glass door gave us the feeling of being at a chef's table while sipping muscat and eating Devine sweets.
Other standouts from our week was the egg and caviar dish at L'atelier, an amazing creative wine service at amaranth in the four seasons hotel and a blow your mind meal St wading and a fun social
Event at bar bouloud
But Atherton is the chef of the moment in London - at least until Thomas Keller's pop up in Harrod's opens in a few weeks
