As a kid I loved food and thinking about being a grown up. When I pictured being older and going to fancy restaurants places like Logan Brown were in my imagination. My experience today, as naff as it sounds, lived up to my childhood dreams.
There is something about Logan Brown that I find magical. I love the building with its strange angles, beautiful cornice ceiling and nooks. It is one place where I even enjoy visiting the ladies room. Every time I have been I have walked in and felt like I am now the adult I wanted to be. The food is fabulous too!
My visit today was with a good friend. I am a member of Logan Brown’s Vault Club. I do the odd survey and receive emails about events. Every so often I get an email with a great offer. An offer enticed me to visit this time as the lunch menu was an incredible price, $45 for 2 people to have 3 courses. Yes, you read right, high end food at an extraordinary price.
When I write my blog posts about places I eat I don’t go into huge descriptions of my meal. Eating and tasting is a very individual thing and your opinion can be very different to mine. With todays food, I am pretty sure any one with a mouth would side with me.
So, here a few photographs of my mighty fine lunch. I nearly forgot to tell you about my major achievement…………… I didn’t read the menu before I went and I had the fish dish and didn’t do my predictable move and go for the vegetarian dish. It was a glorious fish dish, all three dishes were marvellous.
Red Onion & Portobello Mushroom Tart, Grilled Haloumi, Chorizo Vinaigrette & Arugula
Crisp Skin Gurnard, Chermoula White Bean Puree, Prawn Beignet & Corn
Caramelised Apple Frangipane, Cinnamon Ice Cream, Candied Almonds & Calvados Syrup
