Anyone for Lunch? London Trip Part 2/3

One of my favourite restaurants for a very special treat is Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley in London(Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley).  The food is so delicious and so beautifully presented I just had to blog it!!

I started with an apperitif of Louis Roederer NV Champagne, then the food came!!

Nibbles: A confit of foie gras with feuilletine and orange marmalade topping and a taramasolata and avocado dip with croutons.

Amuse bouche: Mushroom velouté with truffle creme and ultra thin bread sticks.

Starter: Great Grant Farm Suckling pig with devilled whitebait and picallili.

Main: Sea bass with squid, squid ink, garlic cream on a nettle salsa.

Pre-dessert: Shot glass of white rum pannacotta, cucumber and lime granité.

Dessert: Meringues with praline and milk sorbets on smoked caramel and nuts.

Then a complete surprise the Maître d' had arranged for a mini slice of the chef's famous egg custard tart, which I love!  Marcus Wareing made this tart for HM Queen Elizabeth II at a special banquet 2 years ago and for which there was a TV competition to determine the menu.  It just melts in your mouth!


Then it was hand made truffles and tea to finish.
I have to say I love this restaurant and can highly recommend it.  The service is tip top and the food is divine, so if you need a treat, and you are in London, this is THE place to come!!
