The Jew's House Restaurant (Lincoln)

Despite an unusual name and 12th century exterior, The Jew's House in Lincoln contains a very modern decor and menu. The chef, Gavin Aitkenhead, has worked in Michelin star kitchens, and that experience shines in all the dishes. I think it must be the best restaurant in Lincoln.

We were very happy with our menu choices, and I think what stood out to me was how every element of a dish worked together with the others. I had the scallop starter... the perfectly cooked scallops on a bed of celeriac and apple remoulade with honey and almonds. Mr. Zuriga chose the butternut squash soup which was on a smoked bacon souffle with red onion marmalade.

I've had enough meat for awhile, so my main was a roast vegetable tagine with fregola... it blended beautifully with yogurt and a tomato jam. The Mr. dined on partridge (he said it was perfect) with sprouts and potatoes.

We shared a chocolate and praline mousse cake - layers I had never seen before. It was accompanied by Amarula ice cream, a first taste sensation for us, and it was yummy.

I hope our path leads us back to Lincoln again!
