Restaurant Gordon Ramsay

A trip to London isn’t complete for a foodie unless they go to the enfant terrible of 3 star Michelin Restaurants. The Restaurant Gordon Ramsay on Royal Hospital Road is incredibly intimate. Just 14 tables in a modest room. The decor is modern and the light is bright. I like it. My table for one sat facing the three tables by the window. It was a bit “tense” in the restaurant at the start of service but everyone, diners and staff, warmed up after about 30 mintues. Here are three dishes from the relatively modest tasting menu (for 3 star Michelin Restaurants anyway). The menu has 2 appetisers and 2 “main” courses. I started with a seasonal special of tagliatelle with parmesan sauce and fresh white truffles. Then the Ravioli of lobster, langoustine and salmon poached in a light bisque with a chervil velouté. This was a dense ravioli, packed with flavour and a wonderful sauce. Like a big won-ton, I was told was a signature dish of the restaurant.

My first main course was the Roasted fillet of Cornish turbot with coco beans, girolles, morteau sausage and fennel pollen. I thought the turbot wasn’t a spectacular fish or dish. The fresh whole roasted turbot we had last week in Venice on our last night at Cantinone Storico was more memorable. Nevertheless, the cooking was perfectly executed and the pairing with a chicken reduction was inspired. A good winter dish.

My second main was the Cannon of Cotswold lamb with confit breast and braised shank, navarin of summer vegetables. As with all slow cooked low temperature meats this one had a pure taste but lacked oomph for me. The three different cuts of lamb while different texturely wasn’t so with taste. Not worth the effort in my view. My Cannon was also trimmed poorly with two discs having the white gristle, which you can see in the photo.

This is the second desert of Blackcurrant, violet, fennel and yoghurt génoise. Beautiful on the plate and on the palate. Wow.
