‘Nigiri - Tokyo’
.
An incredible lunch at ⭐️⭐️ @therabyhunt up near Darlington. This really was one of the best meals I can remember having over the past 18 months. With incredible small bites at the start of the meal all amazingly being perfect in my opinion, I was sure there was no way that this level could be kept up throughout the meal but it was. Every dish was flawless. Dishes inspired by chef patron James Close’s travels. An idea is born and over time him and his team hone and craft that idea, focusing and focusing down until they achieve the perfect nigiri or crab tart or tempura langoustine. Just outstanding stuff. My only small gripe was no cheese course but as pastry chef and partner Maria Close @theguseva explained, James keeps adding dishes to the menu and some guests were being unable to finish the incredible desserts so
they were afraid that adding a cheese trolley would just compound the problem. I disagree as I had no problem cleaning every plate so I think some cheese or even a composed cheese course would be a great addition to what I honestly thought was a ⭐️⭐️⭐️ meal. You might think it's a mission to get up to the restaurant but it really isn't. 2.5 hours on the train from London and a short taxi ride and you're there. We were lucky to dine on a Friday lunch when the main restaurant is closed and the team just focus on the guests at the kitchen counter. Just three of us this time so we felt very well looked after. Highly recommended and I cannot wait to get back up there soon.
