|The view from our table|
We had such a good table, it was at the corner with floor to ceiling glasses on two sides, and the magnificent St Pauls Catherdral was right there in front of us, the perfect view!
|Crispy Pig Cheek, Piccalilli, chive with Lambs Lettuce Salad|
|Chicken Liver with Toast|
For starters we had Crispy Pig Cheek and Chicken Liver with Toast.
I didn't know what to expect for Pig Cheek, it came as a "fish cake" style, lightly crispy outside but soft & tender the inside; the piccalilli cut through the rich flavour and lifted the dish so well!
Jamie Oliver's restaurant never does things ordinarily. The wooden board had three waves of chicken liver pate, which was flavoursome. But the star of the board, I think was the toasts! Normally the toasts that come with a pate dish would be tiny! So tiny & few that I would run out of toasts after two mouthful. However, Barbecoa's toasts were proper slices! The toasts had a hint of cheese flavour (but I couldn't see any trace of cheese), which made them so tasty that I could just eat them on their own!
|Rib-Eye for Two|
|Sides - Duck Fat Chips, Garlic Mash, Bourbon Peppercorn sauce and Blue Cheese Butter (hidden behind the chips)|
It was cooked to medium rare, and did look quite red in the pictures. I normally couldn't eat meat that rare, but they were so tender, and rich, and dyingly delicious!!! The flavour was so rich that Scott said he couldn't had the blue cheese butter… too rich together!

|Barbecoa Brownie with Caramel Popcorn & Salted Caramel Ice Cream|
And finally, I leave you with a little view from the Roof Terrace of One New Change. There is a restaurant and a bar on the roof terrace for a little pre- or after dinner drink!
