I went dine at Ronnie Scott’s last Monday evening, London’s legendary jazz club and what an evening it was. I didn’t really know what to expect as I have never been to a Jazz club before, so I was really excited about the evening ahead.
As soon as I walked into the restaurant it was dark and I couldn’t see a thing (great start) but straight away the waiter walked me to our seats. The musicians were playing, everyone was talking, drinking and the atmosphere was just buzzing!!
As soon as I looked at the menu I knew what to order. I went for diver-caught Scottish king scallops with cauliflower purée and vanilla foam to start with, fillet of halibut with braised salsify, pancetta, charlotte potatoes and saffron butter sauce for mains, we then shared the apple and cinnamon tart with prune Armagnac cream for desert. We drank cosmopolitans, prosecco and a few too many glasses of muscat to end the evening nicely (well of what i can remember!!)
I can’t recommend the place enough, the music, food, atmosphere and waiters were all amazing! It is definitely somewhere to go for a special occasion, I was certainly impressed.
I wasn’t allowed to take pics.. but this is what it looks like to give you a feel of the place!
Whats is your favourite London restaurant?
