No. 35 (London, UK)

The hotel the restaurant is located in is all white inside and has secret doors everywhere. It was cool, just hard to find. Food here was a B-.

Amuse Bouche - fruit jelly on the bottom with what I think was cheese flavored whipped cream and crunchy nuts and caramel bits on top. It was delicious.
Chilled Cucumber Soup - It was a little salty, but still good
Terrine of Spiced Duck - It was served foie gras style, but had pieces of duck in it. It tasted really good with the pickled plums
Gilthead Bream - This fish was perfect! The skin was so crispy and had a hint of lemon juice on it. The clam dressing made the dish.
Roast Chump of Lamb - nothing special
Pre Dessert - very similar to the amuse bouche except with crunchy chocolate bits on top
Floating Island - wow! it was a poached peach on the bottom, with a custard on top, floating in amoretti.

I think the food in London isn't so good because they spend all their time perfecting dessert. The dessert is serious here.
