From Clapham to Piccadilly

Trinity (pictured) has been a Clapham fixture for some years, one of the few Michelin-starred restaurants south of the river. The menu is appealing and the staff lovely, but at this latest meal things were rather erratic, with a very good tarte tatin but some minor issues with multiple dishes. This is a little hard to excuse at the not inconsiderable price point, and a regular diner there confirmed to me that “it is consistently inconsistent”. 

Consistency is not an issue at The Ritz, where I have been many times now as it is my “go-to” fine dining venue in London. At this latest meal the langoustines were even more gigantic than usual, and a stunning veal sweetbread dish was particularly impressive, along with a fine main course of fallow deer.
