First time here, Sunday night 6pm, no reservations, just the two of us. Let me start by saying I almost always make a reservation, but this being early on a Sunday I didn't think it was going to be a problem and the place was not busy. Well, it wasn't really a problem, but not having a reservation relegated us to sitting at the front of the restaurant in the "cheap" seats. The red leather seats facing the window is close to a foot lower than the seat opposite it and makes it hard to reach the table. This made for an uncomfortable start to the evening, as I had to employ a nearby pillow to be level with my date and we're both average height. The same problem appeared at all surrounding tables. Now settled in, however lumpily, it was on to cocktails, which were inventive, refreshing and suited to most of the food options. The Foie gras terrine was simply outstanding, one of the best dishes I've ever had, highlighted by it's rich, fat, smokiness, countered by a lovely Kriek granita (ice crystals from cherry beer!) and preserved cherries served with eggie, squares of off the chart, Truffled brioche french toast. This was all so good we didn't think we could go on to the entree, but we did and it was almost as good. The Braised lamb shank showed a Moroccan influence with strong flavours of honey, fig, cinnamon and a little too much salt. The meat was very tender while the cous cous and zalouk provided nice textual balance. Dessert, yes we fit it in, a Green Tea ice cream that was sooo smooth, light and not too sweet. Service was personable, attentive and knowledgable. We will be back, with (no) reservations.
