New Restaurant in Clapham

Jules | Oct 9, 200105:03 AM

Thyme - on the site of the old Moxon's (R.I.P.). Ex-Gordon Ramsay Chef (Adam somebody) - but not another fish restaurant, this is "modern European".

Dinner set menus: 2 courses £10, 4 courses £19, 6 courses £26, for generous starter portions. Fairly priced and sensibly chosen wine list.

Friendly service, if a little over-attentive at first and the opposite when ready to order. A few yawning gaps in between courses. Odd delivery of some breadsticks/grissini with olive oil whilst awaiting food - ever tried dipping a thin breadstick into a miniature pot of olive oil ? It doesn't work.

Food good and a treat to have the variety of courses. Puddings truly world class - turns out that chef specialises. Atmosphere a tiny bit sterile and lighting a notch too sombre. Could do with more than one painting on the wall. Trendy "chill-out" music on the stereo - not everybody's cuppa.

Check it out if you live nearby - reasonably priced and there is one good claret on the list, drinking now (makes a change) for only 110% mark-up. Only been open 10 days. No, I don't own shares in the venture - think it's co-owned by chef and maitre d'.
