what to eat?

So - a friend of mine is treating me to dinner tonight as a thankyou for being a listening ear regarding a problem or two.

Menu for this evening is at the website below:

http://www.ronniescotts.co.uk/dining/dining/

Hmmm. Not entirely sure what to chose. Any ideas? What would you eat?

p.s. Ox cheeks?

"FIV != PTS"
"SENIOR KITTIZENS ROCK! (between naps)"

I'd probably have the tuna (none of the others appeal) followed by the confit duck, prawns or aforementioned ox cheek stew.

Yep, ox cheek will be nice, never had it but ox tongue or oxtail is nice. Offal generally is very tasty - though that usually refers to internal organs rather than head or tail...

In Paris I once ordered cervelles des agneaux, as I knew it was lamb. What arrived were two poached lambs brains - which just looked like human brains but slightly smaller. I ate them anyway, very nice!

Hmmm ... as regards to food I will try pretty much anything once ....

But in this case I might just have to take a rain check on those lamb brains Alex

Mmmm!

Sea bass or duck if you are thinking of staying a little on the less expensive side? Or, if you like Italian, that ox-cheek sounds like it could be fun!!

And it will be interesting to see what the soup will be - hope it is something seasonal and surprising...

Enjoy!!!

Looking at the prices, I think I would have a glass of water, please!

Is this a 5 star restaurant, Allie? Those prices are very high.

However, since you're being treated, I'd have the soup, (depending on what kind...no "lamb's brain soup!" ) beef, and either the lime tart or the chocolate mousse! That's more that $67.00!

My mother made oxtail soup quite often. It's very good. You know...the closer the bone, the sweeter the meat. Of course, I didn't know what it was at the time. I thought it was like potted head (potted heed, she called it), which was gelled roast beef, and made good sandwiches. Why it was called potted "heed" I don't know!

Ronnie Scott's is a famous jazz club, I didn't know it served food - it's certainly not a fine dining place.

Those prices are not really expensive for the UK, and certainly not for London. The cost of living here is high!

I agree, this is pretty cheap for London. Jeanie I went for dinner at the OXO Tower a few weeks ago and I think you would have fallen over at the price of their glass of water!!

Allie I have been here a few times and the food is pretty good for this kind of venue, I would be going for the Chicory, apple, grapefruit and walnut salad followed by the risotto - sounds yummy

Would you cancel my order for water, please? I just realized I'm not thirsty.

Jeanie, London is very expensive, I'll let Allie respond though.
So where is my water?
