After a slightly faltering start (mislaying our reservation and taking a while to bring us predinner drinks) Lindsay House started to show why it consistently has had high praise. The menu was interesting and very well balanced that made choosing sufficiently difficult that we asked if we slip in a fish course between the starter and the main - which was no problem at all.
I started with a rabbit, cep and foie gras terrine - a beautifully balanced dish whose flavours complimented each other really well. Next up was a scallops and braised pork belly dish - something of new favorite amongst london chefs at the moment it seems. It was delicious though a poor choice by me as a middle fish dish - it was too rich in that position - my friends' red mullet would have been better I think. My main course was medley of duck (confit leg, roasted breast and a savoy cabbage parcel of the liver and heart with shallots) - each was spot on and the presentation well thought through. My only criticism would be that it was served with mash potatoes on the side that just didn't quite work. Following a small cheese course which we shared between us, I had a delightfully pudding of chocolate wafers with a orange parfait that cut the bitterness of the chocolate. All in all a first class meal.
