This was our third visit to Ledbury, a 2 star Michelin that opened around 2005, but the first visit for lunch. At lunch they offer a full tasting menu of 6 courses as well as a set lunch of 4 items or a 4 course menu with choices for each course. There are just 18 nicely spaced tables set with lovely white clothes and napkins along with a different object of art. The wood floor and columns add to the serene room that has lots of windows and mirrors. Fancy chandeliers add lighting but in the day the windows bring in plenty of natural light. The noise level is non-existent but conversations still feel private. There are a huge number of service people that are helpful, friendly and often smiling. We chose the four course tasting where we picked our options and of course they added more to it. Brett Graham is the The Chef but on our visit Greg Austin, Head Chef who has been the there for 9 1/2 years, was running the kitchen. Regardless of which is there, this place is worth putting on your list. Continue reading
The Ledbury, London, 11/9/14
The Ledbury was another repeat visit and I believe it’s gotten even better! It’s a fairly small place and offers a tasting menu as well as a la carte. You quickly start with several amuse bouche which were all quite tasty and nice bites of intense taste. The meal had a few blander spots but nothing bad, just not overwhelming.
