28-50 Maddox Street – London

We went to this nice restaurant last Saturday. It is one of our favorite in London. Not because of the super-excellent food, nor it is a 3-star restaurant. But I have loved the concept. Selling very nice wine bottles with good and simple food.

The meat there is excellent, well cooked and tender. I always take the onglet! Maybe I should be a little more exotic next time and taste the seafood!

We had a bottle of Leoville Barton 2001, a Bordeaux wine. They took a very long time to bring the bottle and didn’t even open the bottle beforehand. This wine needs a good 4-hour decanting I guess. We finished the wine the next day and it was much more enjoyable and we could feel all the fruits.

Regarding the food, the meat is excellent. I had took chips as side order but it is not worth it and adds a bad smell and taste to the meat. Next time I’ll take vedges or a salad.
