We were very excited to visit The Larchmont, founded by a trio of renowned restaurant owners who have come together and handpicked the chefs to create the menu on offer here, there are some rather interesting dishes as a result. There are some unique dishes, and a range of interested flavours to sample.

It's the collective minds coming together that create the whole experience. There is fun and friendly service, a well laid out and presented dining area.

We were seated outside on their private heated terrace, which was wonderful on this given night. We kicked off our evening with an aperitif to stimulate the palate. We had a Gin Cucumber Soda. A lovely blend of Gin, Cucumber, Yuzu, Lime and Ginger Beer. along with a French Revolution, made with Vodka, Lemon, Orgeat, and Blood Orange. Equally as refreshing, and delicious.

"The Larchmont get a thumbs up from us"

To begin we had the Roasted Baby Roots, with Goat's Cheese, Hazelnut and Petite Lettuces. A superbly presented dish, with incredibly flavoursome ingredients. We also had the Kale Salad with Pistachios, Apples, Farro, Blood Oranges and Grana. The fruity flavours complemented the Kale very well.

For our main course we were drawn to their meat dishes. I had the Moroccan Braised Lamb Shoulder with Couscous. It came with a side of Chermoula and Fried Almonds. Personally I love Moroccan flavours, and the Lamb was perfectly seasoned. I can't fault this dish and was more than happy to return a clean plate. My partner had the "Steak Frites" Prime Flat Iron Steak, which came with Béarnaise Butter, rocket and Bordelaise sauce. The steak was perfectly cooked, and the sauce infused with the juicy flavours.

Our main dishes were paired with a glass of Cote de Brouilly, Chateau Thivin, 2013. It was a perfect marriage, the wine had a strong nose of dark berries and fresh herbs. Perfect with meat dishes, and rounded off a very enjoyable dining experience.
