Sola in Soho has recently had a significant refurbishment, greatly expanding the kitchen and wine storage and much improving the décor of the dining room. The distinguishing feature of this restaurant is its care to seek out really top-quality ingredients, and this aspect always shines through here in the cooking.

Le Salon Prive in Twickenham has a classically trained chef/owner, and serves food that is better than you might expect in such a neighbourhood setting. At this visit the star dish was pigs trotters made in the style of Pierre Koffmann, for whom the chef had worked for several years. Be aware that this dish was a special pre-order, and not on the usual menu.

I also had a very enjoyable at my local l’Amorosa, though as I have already written previously about the excellent risotto and wild boar ragu there, I have not written a fresh review.
