The Capital had been on my wish list for ages. I certainly did not expect to get a booking at a few days notice, especially for lunch on the Saturday after Christmas. However if you do not try, you do not get. One email reply later and we were all set. The down side was that the only choice seemed to be the a la carte menu.
I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the room, it is small and quite intimate.
The style of food was pretty conventional – classic french cuisine. One standout was a herring fish course, the flavour was so strong and distinct.
The matching wines were also first rate, even if they did push the price up quite dramatically. Overall it was a superb meal.
Update: Since our visit the Chef and a number of his team have left.
