Sorry, photo of Cornish lamb cutlets with roasted root vegetables is missing here. The dish just disappeared from the plate. Too good to wait.

Another visit at Beck at Browns after 7 months. How does the autumn/winter menu taste like?
For me it started with delicious pan-seared Scottish scallops with sweet potato and pickled tropea onions which were covered with a generous amount of an excellent white truffle from Alba. A very good reason for all scallop lovers to go to Beck at Brown’s! Chris had the finely chopped veal tartare with Parmesan cream truffle and rosemary bruschetta with some lovely truffles on the top.
This time I didn’t want to miss one of the Beck’s classics: the fagotelli alla carbonara. I had them at La Pergola years ago – an experience you can’t forget, so I was looking forward to tasting them again. The sinful experience of the juices hidden inside the fagotelli that explode in your mouth is something you definitely can’t forget. They hit you each time you try this dish. This time we had also some precious Alba truffles on the top.
The dinner followed with pan-fried wild turbot with mussels, rocket mayo and saffron sauce as the main fish dish and with the Cornish lamb cutlets with roasted root vegetables as the last savoury part of the menu. Both perfectly cooked and prepared with lots of care.
As dessert was served Orange jelly with bergamot ice cream. A beautifully light and refreshing dessert of intense flavours that explode in your mouth. It was followed by lovely petit fours.
Beck at Brown’s remains an excellent choice for delicious, perfectly executed Italian flavours with a bit of glamour and an immaculate service. Go and let them pamper you!
