I had another excellent meal at The Ritz (actually two meals, but two reviews in a week seems obsessive), with highlights including a superb sweetbread dish and the usual lovely duck liver ballotine and langoustine a la nage dishes. A modern dish here is the lovely raw scallop canape (pictured). There were a couple of new desserts as well to add some variety. Meal after meal here continues to show off arguably the best high end dining in London. 

Black Salt is the sister of the superb Dastaan, and most of the menu is identical to the parent restaurant. The standard of dishes is almost as high, with particularly lovely tandoori prawns, vegetable bhajias, pork vindaloo and methi chicken. I didn’t have any new dishes on the visit so didn’t write a fresh review (all dishes are already covered in prior reviews) but the level of cooking was as high as ever.
