Normally I cannot wait to write the text for this blog. It's one of the ways I express myself and, especially with great restaurants, the text is almost as important to me as the photos. However, in the case of Restaurant Story, I am going to do something I've never done before. I'm going to let the photos speak for themselves and I'm going to say very little.
As you scroll up and down looking at the photos of this incredible restaurant, I'll just say this; for the money, Restaurant Story is the best restaurant I've ever been to. What did he just say? What about The Fat Duck? What about Gavroche? Surely The French Laundry is the best? No. For the money, Story beats them all. Every restaurant in my top 5 leaves you feeling amazing, no doubt. But it also leaves you several hundred Pounds, or Dollars poorer. The full tasting menu above can be had for £80. It was £75 when I went on April 1st 2015. And for that, you get one of the greatest food experiences you'll likely have in your life.
The highlights for me are: The Beef Dripping Candle with Bread, Brioche and Triple Layered Butter (hello Foie Gras!), Onion Apple and Old Tom, Lamb Served Four Ways, Lemon Dessert Served Several Ways and Tea Cakes to top it all off. Incredible quality, amazing theatre and wonderful food!
Stop reading this and get on the phone to them and make a reservation. You won't regret it.
My highest recommendation.
