Besotted with Boutique Eat Shop

Boutique Eat Shop has been on our 'must try' list since we've moved to Chelsea. When a voucher for a dinner for two with drinks came up on Travel Zoo's deals, I snatched it up for a special date night treat. The Mr has been working a lot recently, so it was time to cash in our coupon and spend a quality evening together.

I was super tempted by the Pumpkin Martini, but it sounded like dessert. Instead, we started our meal with The Spicy Mango (Maker's Mark, mango puree, chili powder, tobasco) and the Mexican Cider (Don Julio Blanco, fresh squeezed apple cider, fresh lemon juice, ground cinnamon). Delicious!

For starters we had one of our latest favorites the shishito peppers in a sweet ponzu sauce and the tiger shrimp and scallop risotto. Both were really well prepared and whetted our appetites for our main courses.

Next came the lobster ravioli with creamed corn and tabasco foam and the 8oz organic angus burger on truffle brioche with spicy aioli and potato wedges:

Burger & Potato Wedges
We loved how the Tobasco foam kicked in a hint of spice to the creamy ravioli. The burger was quite good, even though we really couldn't taste truffle on the brioche. The potato wedges were the perfect mix of crisp outer skin and soft inner potato goodness. Dipped in the spicy aioli, these were a complete home run.

All in all it was a lovely evening of good food and cool art in a low key yet swanky place. A wonderful date!
