Returning to the reassuring tranquility of the Wolseley is a joyful antidote to this unsettling moment. The front of the Stockwell Continental functions as a coffee shop during the day serving proper Italian coffee. During dinner, the restaurant in the back was more than half full. We ate antipasti, including house bresaola, ham, chickpea fritters, burrata and basil oil, and a superb dish of sheep's ricotta and roasted pumpkin.
We arrived too late to eat baby chicken seasoned with spatchcock, and we didn't feel like making cannibalistic pigs with the medium white porchetta. In addition to being a confirmed orthorexic, I also have intolerances to onions and garlic, which, I must say, the staff was very tolerant. The obvious downside here is that a good restaurant is going to become popular, and Bangkok Degree is a good restaurant.
