The Victims: Joe, Maria, Jen
The Damage: Unknown!
The Background: I had organized a little outing over to the Great Australian Wine Experience by St. James’ Park. For £35, we got a nice big book about Australian wine producers/distributors, as well as a commenorative glass; you could wander from one stand to the next, tasting along the way. (Some producers even let you pour your own. Nice.) It was a fantastic evening. One of the highlights were a couple of different Chardonnays from Giant Steps.
Once we were all wined-out–I never thought that would be possible–we hopped a taxi over to The Enterprise, Joe & Maria’s old local. I was very excited because I’d always heard nice things.
The Approach: And indeed, The Enterprise was nice. And cozy. The staff were particularly so and the whole place was cast in this lovely warm goldenly glow. (Then again, maybe there was still a little too much lovely warm goldeny Chardonnay coursing through my veins.) There was a short wait for a table, so we enjoyed some drinks and Doritos at the bar.
The Starters: I was insanely jealous of the calamari starter. They looked like onion rings and were stacked high. My foie gras was teensy in comparison, but was, as foie gras nearly always is, very very tasty.
The Mains: My salmon fishcakes were really good, although a bit on the dry side. After all that white wine, I didn’t care though..dry was a good thing.
The Verdict: I’d go back for the coziness and the proximity to Harrod’s.
