From Westminster to Soho

Yaatra is a large Indian restaurant in Westminster that has recently been relaunched after an ownership and name change. We took advantage of a half price introductory offer and so ate cheaply, and I enjoyed a tandoori prawn starter in particular. However, there was some unevenness in the dishes that we tried, and the wine list was so outrageously priced that I drank beer instead. I think it will have some work to do to fill its 170 odd seats.

Sola in Soho is a cosy fine dining restaurant serving unusually high grade produce in a tasting menu format. Highlights of this meal included superb hare royale and a lovely capon, while old favourites such as the langoustines in dashi broth and the very pretty tuna starter continue to impress.

In other news, there was a 3rd Michelin star for Addison near San Diego, which I visited well before Michelin had come across it.
