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.


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.
