One problem I find choosing where to go for a nice meal if the choice, what do I want meat or fish? I was very pleased to discover May Fair Kitchen, where the concept is about letting you be the chef. You get to assemble you meal together, picking from a mouth-watering list of meats and seafood, then chose the sides and sauces you want to go with it. The restaurant is light and airy, the market feel extended to display fridges hanging all the 28 day aged meats. A fish counter boasted huge prawns and oysters, all the shellfish still squirming at a touch, freshness is paramount. Locally sourced produce, ray wing with gherkin butter and meaty turbot came from Devon, langoustines and scallops from Scotland. Their meat selection offered everything from veal and lamb chops to huge marbled fore ribs, pork cheeks and Iberico ham. Their mixed Grills packed in the best of everything and vegetarians could enjoy a sumptuous quail’s egg, blue cheese and lemon ravioli. Black garlic and shrimp butters and sauces of Thai chilli and port with Jersey blue *slightly swooning*. The sides were a mix of home comfort classics such as corn beef hash and colcannon, right through to luxurious lobster tarragon mash, samphire with ginger and steamed vegetables en papillote. If a fan of cocktails, I raved over gin based Tokyo Drive with wasabi, cucumber purées and their Victorian Martini using thyme, blueberries, blackberry liqueur. There was at least six variations of Bloody Marys. Waiting staff were super friendly, so much so I was the last to leave, with my desserts, chosen off a classic trolley (fudgy chocolate tart, pralines and blueberry cheesecakes) all wrapped up to gorge on later. A real treat if you’re looking for great cooking and quality ingrediants, where you make your meal as simple or elegant as you choose.
