Four 0 Nine restaurant at Foodie Festival, Battersea Park, London
This will be one of our shortest reviews ever, not because the food’s bad – it’s actually very, very good… It’s just because we were at a food festival and the Four 0 nine stall menu only consisted of three dishes.
We shared all of them… First up was an amazing plate of Tamworth pulled pork on a bed of cracked wheat with grilled corn, cherry tomatoes, imported Italian beans and a good dollop of curd.
Next up was a rich braised beef ragu on freshly made tagliatelle sprinkled with a great quality Grana Padano – I could have eaten this all afternoon even with the sun beating down on my shiny head!
And just when we thought it couldn’t get any better the hot chocolate & hazelnut brownie with vanilla ice cream & hot chocolate sauce turned up. For once I was left speechless.
Just to give you a better insight, here are a few words from Four 0 Nine’s website… “Situated above The Clapham North since 2006, four o nine has established itself as a hidden gem of a restaurant. Accessed via a private entrance, four o nine somehow manages to marry a distinctively exclusive feel with something altogether more comfortable. At its heart, it’s a classic neighbourhood restaurant, serving exciting and modern European food, complemented by friendly and professional service.”
Until we visit the main restaurant in Clapham (very tempted to visit their wine club) we can’t really say too much more. But based on the tasters that we had it will be well worth a visit!
