Local eat - Charlotte's Bistro

1st week back at work done and dusted which included a late enough Friday finish, poo! After collecting JD  from the tube station, we decided to head out for dinner down the road at Charlotte's Bistro - quite surprised we could get a walk-in table on a Friday night? Of course, we didn't complain and despite walking in at the stroke of 7pm, we were also offered the early bird offer of 3 courses from the a la carte menu plus an aperitif for 26 squid, pretty good offer!! Naturally, we opted for the early bird and were pretty pleased with the overall standard of cooking. Bon app :)
 Complimentary bread with offers of replenishment!

 Starter of marinated violet artichokes and leek hearts with truffle emulsion - a very tasty dish but could've done with some more trimming of the artichokes which still had some woody bits attached - not that keen on the extra fibre!

 Main of confit duck leg

 Dessert of vanilla cheesecake - pleasantly surprised by its creaminess but JD didn't like it :(
