Mirabelle, London

Went to Mirabelle last week. Curious to see if the steak (an Aberdeen Angus ribeye with snails and pomme puree) was as good as howler said it was.

And it was pretty good - good beefy flavour, wonderful, Luger-esque crusting even on a rare steak. Some nice spinach too. Potatoes didn't blow me away though (great taste - presumably from copious butter - but slightly odd texture, as if they'd been riced without being boiled properly) and the snails, while fun, seemed a bit superfluous. Nice spinach underneath.

I'd be interested to try the pig's trotter on the menu there: I have distant memories of having (and being blown away by) the Pigs Trotter Pierre Koffman when Marco Pierre White was cooking at the Oak Room at Le Meridien, and I wonder what the relation between the two dishes would be.

Any thoughts?
