I'm actually sipping the dream cocktail. I'm at Goode
& Wright where the drinks have been concocted by someone called
'The talented Mr Fox', a moniker he well deserves. Somehow
all my favourite things are in the same glass at the same time;
peanut butter, gin, coconut water and curry leaf.
Goode & Wright opened three years ago on Portobello Road
(just a dangerously short hop from my office!) But there are
changes afoot with a new bar at the back of the French bistro-style
restaurant and a new director, Alex Herb.
Head chef Finlay Logan works in the open kitchen making
delicious things like seared diver scallop with smoked bath chap
and charred pear, or charred mackerel with golden beetroot and
horseradish. But best of all was the buttermilk marinated
chicken schnitzel - so tender and so naughty.
There was no room at the inn for pudding… but I'll be back.
