Dinner in London this Sunday
Just got to London for a few days before travelling around the UK. I didn't get my usual time for researching restaurants for this trip and need help finding a good place for dinner on Sunday - my birthday! We're staying near Victoria Station but can get around on the Underground. My husband is not as adventurous as I am so nothing too out there. Cost isn't a huge issue as I'm sure I can't get reservations this late at the really expensive restaurants. I do like good quality food with a creative flair and would love to have a memorable dinner in London during the few days we are here. Thanks!
The Malt House, Claude Bosi's latest gastro-pub in Fulham is well worth a shout. They've opened it fairly softly to date without shouting too much so tables seem to be widely available.
Marcus McGuiness, Claude's long time head chef from Hibiscus, has been installed at the stoves and it shows. It's brilliantly re-invented, contemporary gastro grub with Michelin execution.
The beef for their Sunday roast comes from the same Hibiscus supplier in the Lakes and is finished on one of those fancy Japanese ceramic BBQ's. I have to say it's probably the best roast I've ever had. Not overly cheap at £18, but you undoubtedly get what you pay for.
Don't be surprised if this place joins The Harwood (which is coincidentally round the corner) on a star come October...
