Forth Floor, Harvey Nichols

Ms E,Mr N,Mr C and I had booked a table to try the tasting menu at Harvey Nichols Forth Floor Restaurant. Harvey Nics is far and away my favourite store- EVER, so to be eating in their restaurant made me very excited indeed.

The food was all displayed beautifully, a nice varied menu. We did think on some plates there might have been a few too many things happening at once. But overall a lovely dining experience. Plenty of wines flowing as we decided to have the matched drink selection.

Unfortunately we were there at the start of the month, and I have left it far too late to accurately recall all of the details of all of the dishes we had. So this is just a picture blog today, with some very beautiful dishes.
Amuse Bouche: Lamb bonbon and Mackerel Tartare

A charming way to present butter, on a cold stone

Scallop with Taramasalata and Compressed Watermelon, Kelp Paper

Rabbit Three Ways

Mackerel with Watermelon, Palm hearts, White Asparagus, Turnip, Pistachios and Gooseberry

A really lovely evening. Alot of new and exciting flavour combinations, everything was thoroughly enjoyed. Fantastic staff always helps to make a night, and Forth Floor didn't not fall short here by any means.

A MASSIVE Thank you to Ms E and Mr N for helping me recall all the elements of this meal. Huge hugs guys!
