Earlier in the week I had the pleasure of attending Friends & Family Night at Gordon Ramsay at The London West Hollywood. The decadent restaurant recently revamped their menu under Executive Chef Anthony Keene, and now focuses on the ideal SoCal way of dining out: small plates. This may be a girl thing (read: the beau and most other dudes I know don't care to to do this), but my favorite way of trying a restaurant is just ordering a ton of dishes and trying a little bit of everything. And that's exactly what Jasmine, Linley, and I did.
We ordered roughly 2-3 plates each (not including dessert, obviously) so we could try many different things on the menu, which is really the best approach when dining here. Most everything was impeccable with a gorgeous presentation and the service was excellent, creating an overall ideal dinner experience. I'm dying to go back and try the lobster roll--it looked phenomenal when we creeped on the table next to us, but looked difficult to split between more than two people so we passed this time.
Cocktails: modern times, english rose, house champagne
Food: burrata cheese, mushroom risotto, nantucket scallops, fried chicken, tuna pizette, meyer lemon tart, chocolate hazelnut bar
Gordon Ramsay at the London is pretty steep pricing, but if you're looking for a night to splurge on an amazing dinner, I highly recommend it!
