Bacchus (London, UK) – You’ll Have to Tell Me
Here’s a meal I did not eat but was told it was innovative, enjoyable, and, in London, a rare value. I know many readers, chefs, get ideas simply by viewing the pictures so here they are. The darkened room certainly led to graininess so I’ve kept the pictures small to keep them tight.
Foie Gras amuse
Tuna Tartare with pistachio and invisible yuzo
Mackeral Toast with braised baby carrots
Seared Langoustine with pork jowl and salted orange
Eringe a la Plancha with pine nut risotto
Poached Foie Gras with seared mango and miso
Roasted Pollack with ratte potatoes and saffron
Venison al Carbon with textures of cauliflower
Nashi Pear Sorbet
Dark Chocolate with pineapple mille feuille
Considering the price, 46 pounds, I’ll try it if I ever find myself in London again. It would certainly beat the 100 pound Tom Aikens disappointment from nearly 2 years ago – a meal far worse than my photography in that post.
