Wine and Dine: Lunch at the Ritz Carlton in London

I definitely don’t consider myself a food blogger, but I couldn’t help myself and just had to share some pictures with you from my lunch at the Ritz Carlton inLondon. I might not be a food blogger but I’m certainly one that loves to wine and dine and totally love getting dressed up for a fancy dinner. I went to lunch with Trevor Finnergen as it was his birthday just a couple of days before and the food was really amazing. The Ritz itself is just so stunning and just coming in and seeing the lovely tea room, the opulent décor and high ceilings is an experience itself. We had lunch at the big restaurant and this is what I had:

Before the starter we had some mini appetizers that had fantastic flavours and really got you in the mood for what’s to come. We had a really nice waiter who was obviously delighted to have some more relaxed guests he can joke around with here and there, as they are obviously drilled to always be overly polite and hold up the standards.

As a starter I had red snapper with a variety of dips and vegetable on the side. I mean the picture speaks for itself, it obviously was really good and although the portion looks pretty small because you take your time eating it actually fills you up more than you think.

For my main course I had lamb with artichokes and potatoes as well as caramelized onions. I’m normally not one to order medium rare, but as I was in the Ritz I obviously trusted in the cook to make it not too bloody or chewy. Of course it was cooked to perfection and so succulent.

The dessert was a coconut cream with tropical fruits and looked very impressive and like a little piece of art. They also served some little sweet treats at the end and the white chocolate macaroon was to die for! I’m a total white wine fan and the one served was really good, pretty strong as well I have to say, I definitely felt a little buzz after two glasses.

At the beginning the waiter asked us if we are here for any occasion, so I mentioned that it was Trevor’s birthday before and at the end our waiter brought out a little birthday cake and actually started to sing Happy Birthday which was hilarious as he has an Italian accent!
