CHILTERN FIREHOUSE





The Chiltern Firehouse on Chiltern Street in Marylebone has fast become the newest, trendiest high-end restaurant in London.


I started with finger food:  Spicy tuna deviled eggs.  

The best I ever ate.


Accompanied by a glass of French Sancerre.






Main course, their signature dish:  Chargrilled Iberico pork with raw and roasted turnips and sautéed watercress, a side of smoked cream corn.


Unbelievable.

Accompanied by a Willamette Valley (Oregon) pinot noir.


Finally:  Dark chocolate tarte with toasted hazelnut ice cream.


Accompanied by a glass of Tokaji (Hungarian) dessert wine, perfectly chilled.



World class.  

Maybe one of the finest meals of my life.


Add exceptional service.  

Kudos, especially, to Martin H, my server.
