Shacklewell Nights

On Friday night I trekked over to Canary Wharf with friends to check out Shacklewell Nights at Restaurants in Residence. As the dinner started at 8pm, we enjoyed Champagne on the terrace overlooking the Thames and the beautiful skyline in the rather blustery wind - rather a mission to stop skirts and dresses blowing up too high.

Our table of eight was called Compliance and so we joined another group which was a French couple visiting their son and his girlfriend. The first course was slow roasted tomatoes with ‘bobby’ beans and slivers of Berkswell cheese – delicious and perfect for whtting the appetite! This was followed by the second starter, a wonderfully summery brown shrimp salad with fennel, onion and cucumber batons drizzled with a chervil, lemony oil dresing - light, refreshing and really tasty.

All dishes come served in two large dishes for each side of the table for you to help yourselves to as much or as little as you fancy. Perfect for our table split of two parties. Wine was available to buy by the bottle with even some half bottles for particular courses, restrained drinkers or those cutting down (me). The main course and pièce de resistence was the shoulder of slow braised lamb with carrots with mint sauce. It was so succulent it was falling of the bone so Jen carved it like peking duck so you can choose which pieces most appeal. Despite its rich flavour and all the courses, it was really moreish, especially the crispy bits of crackling.

Puddings started off with a palate cleanser of peach sorbet with elderflower jus and a shot of peach schnapps on the side - a great plus! Then the final course was meringue doused in slathers of crème Chantilly and summer berries. A taste of summer indeed!

The next one is Bistroteque, on til 28 July. www.restaurantsinresidence.com
