   The Ivy
Seems somewhat against the whole idea of NFT no? To recommend The Ivy? To set out my table before embarking on what turns up on theirs, I only got to go as someone else was paying. Check out the website--frankly, it ain't cheap. If you find yourself a bit flush and you're forward thinking enough to have booked 3 months in advance, you get a good amount of bang for your buck. For starters, a beautiful, buzzy room, guaranteed (given its fame) to have every table occupied. The amazing thing is this does not impinge on the service, with stiff backed perfectly mannered staff who seem intent on giving you a dining experience that will prove memorable. Dorset crab with celeriac rémoulade (sounds poncey--it just means 'condiment') was light and fresh but my taste buds began to sing when the main turned up. Best end of Cornish lamb (lamb chops as it turned out) were a perfect pink without being chewy and the creamy anchovy and dauphinoise spuds that accompanied them made a cliché true: they literally did melt in the mouth. Some of the best food I've ever had, in one of the nicest places.
