When I heard Little Social was opening I was as giddy as the proverbial kipper on birthday eve. Jason Atherton's first Pollen Street venture, Pollen Street Social divides opinion amongst bloggers, but it was one of the best meals I have ever had. Humble yet refined, and possibly my favourite dessert ever.
I had high hopes for the laid back Little Social, and it didn't disappoint. We arrived fresh from the train, starving and feeling a little chilly. Once inside you are transported to a dimly lit hideaway; the walls decorated with 'aged' anaglypta and old Michelin road maps of France.
Warm sourdough appears and drinks are swiftly summoned. I like to think that this is where Harry Potter would eat if he was partial to a bit of fine dining.
To start I had the watercress soup with slow-cooked egg, parmesan, braised morels and croutons. This emerald green creation was thick but fresh, and the perfect antidote to a chilly Dolly.
Paddy had read great things about the steak tartare, so was delighted to see it on the specials menu. It came with toast, a quail's egg yolk and salad leaves. Unreal. The meat was perfectly seasoned with a sharp edge. The stand out dish of the day.
