It has been a long wait before I finally decided to pop along to Neighbourhood in Spinningfields for dinner without Mr Nom. Seeing as Neighbourhood is tweaking their menu I had to quickly upload this post before it became irrelevant. I actually wish I visited the restaurant earlier as it was lovely inside, I really want to sit at the big booth at the front but as it was only two of us dining the chances seemed pretty slim.
I was rather disappointed to hear that oysters were off the menu that evening but it didn’t stop me and my dining partner from ordering a selection of starters. Lobster tacos were definitely on the cards and Neighbourhood has mentioned today on Twitter that this dish is staying, Thank God because it’s divine a must order at Neighbourhood! A juicy chunk of beer battered lobster in each soft tortilla with sweet pepper ketchup and red cabbage slaw.
As a scallop lover I can never have enough scallops. The scallops were teamed with sweet corn, I rather like that combination however the scallops were slightly over seasoned for me. Also I couldnt say no to the Wagyu sliders, the patty was pink in the middle and served with peppercorn sauce.
As I was starting to fill up from the starters I tackled the main course slowly. My dining partner ordered the wild boar pappardelle, there was not much wild boar however but he happily ate it. Whilst I ordered the stone bass with clams in a creamy sauce, the fish was cooked just right and the sauce was fabulous. As I don’t like crispy skin on my fish this dish was totally for me.
The hospitality was great as Neighbourhood and I would return with Mr Nom. I just had a sneaky peak at the new menu and I know for sure I want to try the razor clam starter.
