This is my fourth visit to Mr Blumenthal’s Dinner and I have to say it is still absolutely exquisite in its products.  Once again the service was very welcoming and the highlights for me this time were electing for the set menu which had the treats of buttermilk to go with my fish and also a gorgeous beetroot sauce to go with the salmon.  I don’t particularly like beetroot but this version was most pleasing.  The cucumber ketchup and seaweed ketchup to go with the dishes opposite me were asbolutely fantastic.  The ice cream trolley was ‘deployed’ once again to much fun effect and my earl grey tea biscuit with ganache to go with tea at the end of the meal finished everything off perfectly.  Another triumph and it remains a special food venue in London.  Had it not been for the bone that was discovered in the seabass I would have given well above 90% but have had to tone it down for that reason.  I also deduct an experience point in that one of the waiters did rather choose to wade in (ie. interrupt straight away when he arrived at the table as he was in a hurry).  However, the food remains truly wonderful.  Going on pay day is recommended here.
