St. John is not a fancy schmancy restaurant. Only go here if you're an extremely brave foodie, like Anthony Bourdain no reservations brave. I've eaten some weird foods before, but everything on the menu was not normal. The roast bone marrow & parsley salad is probably the most famous dish here. The marrow it self was so rich and fatty alone. The parsley salad does a great job toning down the richness of the marrow. For my main course I had roast middlewhite & courgettes (pork and zucchini). It wasn't very good and way too fatty. I felt so unhealthy after eating here. The only good thing that came out of this was the half dozen freshly baked madeleines I took home (my favorite!).
