What more is there to say about St. John that hasn’t already been said? Fergus Henderson is single-handedly responsible for the resurgence of nose-to-tail eating and offals. He is why we menus in restaurants today offer calf brains, tongue and pork cheeks. He has raised the simple to chic and I (Tanis) am so happy to have had the opportunity to check it out. Basically all that I can say is if you go to London, St. John is SO worth the hype. Just great ingredients, cooked right.

The location was an ex-smokehouse, turned greenhouse for harvesting bean sprouts, Chinese beer store, home of the occasional rave then the now St. John Restaurant & Bar.

They have an in-house Bakery

Simple, non-pretentious bar

With a casual eating area under 20 foot high skylights and a few stairs that take you to the dining room and kitchen.

Started off with the fresh Langoustines and Mayonnaise

Followed by the signature Roast Bone Marrow & Parsley Salad

*Sigh* I can remember this bite like it was yesterday.

The day’s special was Crispy Duck Leg with Steamed Veg in a Dijon Vinaigrette.

Topping of the meal with a simple Chocolate Mousse & Creme Fraiche

St John on Urbanspoon
