it was a famous night
. . . . . . . . . . . .
and, wow. the space is simple but comfortable, the service was friendly, and the food simply blew us away. some of my favorites were the roast bone marrow & parsley salad, middlewhite pork, guinea fowl with radishes … well, i liked everything. dessert (er, pudding) was also tremendous … i am a big fan of a good eccles cake, and i knew the version at st. john was notoriously good. with a slice of lancashire cheese, my eyes rolled back in my head and i am pretty sure i was moaning with happiness. the dozen warm madeleines that we ordered also induced moans at our table, and the brown sugar meringue with strawberries was excellent. plus, fergus henderson himself was there! it was a really special meal.
. . . . . . .
