I discovered Theo Randalls cooking a few years back at the Taste of London – Food Festival, so I was looking forward to something quite special when I visited his restaurant at the InterContinental Hotel, especially since the restaurant has 3 AA Rosettes.
We went for “the cheap option”, i.e., a pre-theatre deal. Thinking that might be an easy way to check out the Restaurant.
I really do not understand it when quality restaurants let themselves down at this stage. My view is that if they make the cheap deal appetising, I am going to want to go back and try more of the menu.
Theo Randalls pre theatre menu was really basic, the pasta was not very exciting and actually a bit messy.
In fact the excitement was just outside the window next to our table, the Paparazzi were there covering some award ceremony in the Ballroom. On the plus side this meant we got good service, as the staff kept popping over to have a look 😉
