Review on Trinity
Those who remember Thyme in Clapham will be delighted to learn that chef Adam Byatt has come full circle and returned to SW4 with his restaurant Trinity. Situated not far from Holy Trinity Church in the Old Town, his aptly named restaurant is dominated by burnt-oak floors and a zinc bar; there's also a special 'kitchen table' which provides the setting for master classes, parties and communal Sunday lunches.
Byatt has gone back to his roots and the focus is, once again, on big-flavoured French cooking with its roots in the bourgeois tradition: braised organic pig's head with Russet apple and salsify, or pigeon terrine with semi-dried figs, hot chestnuts and truffled potato soup, for example. Small plates and sharing dishes have been replaced by a classic three-course format, although dish names are fashionably terse.
'Rabbit Broad Beans Onions' is actually a lasagne of braised rabbit with broad beans, onions and black truffle, while 'Peanut Banana Passion' is shorthand for peanut nougat parfait with caramelised banana, passion fruit and lychee. In between, there are deconstructed descriptions advertising roast duckling with Jerusalem artichoke purιe and crisps, baby artichokes and hot foie gras or fillet of John Dory with crushed potatoes, courgette beignets and fish soup. Ten wines by the glass or carafe head the well-chosen list, which features some particularly good regional French bottles.
