Lunch at Petrus

I decided to try lunch at Petrus whilst in London following the Bolshoi ballet.....Petrus is one of the Gordon Ramsay chain and has 1 Michelin Star and ranks in the top 3 London restaurants on Tripadvisor.  The Chef Patron is Sean Burridge who I met after my lunch on a tour of the kitchen, which is an offer extended to guests if they wish.  I enjoyed my meal off the Set Lunch menu very much.
Some champagne to start - and they have proper
linen table cloths.



I like the textured rim on the plates

Amuse bouche of salmon tartare and 
pea mousse

Lovely bread.....and butter!

Starter - conift duck ravioli - divine!

Main - Ballotine of rabbit, ceps and fois gras
with kidney and broadbean - absolutely delcious!


A detail on my glass - funny what you notice!


Pre dessert - tuilles filled with a  white 
chocolate creme with spacedust popping 
candy.


The chef's famous chocolate sphere with milk 
ice cream and honeycomb - mine is melted
from the hot chocolate sauce - I was not 
quick enough to photograph it before the 
waiter poured the chocolate sauce but it
had gold painted on the surface.

Frozen icy truffles of some sort - very cold.

A parting "gift".....



......one of these - I cannot 
remember the name for this type 
of cake but it was yum!
