The Ninth, Charlotte Street

There are some amazing restaurants in Fitzrovia, and The Ninth has just joined their ranks.

The Ninth, Charlotte StreetThe Ninth, Charlotte StreetThe Ninth: ProseccoFelicia, Amy and I shared several dishes between us at lunch. We’d originally decided to pop along to try the confit rabbitm but unfortunately it’s only on the dinner menu, which is something to keep in mind!

Luckily, there were several other items on the menu that piqued our interest – to the point where we couldn’t decide and had to ask our waitress to make the choice for us.

The Ninth: Oxtail CroquettesThe Ninth: Oxtail CroquettesWe started off with the oxtail croquettes, which were wonderful – light and crisp on the outside, with an amazingly tender filling.

We chased the croquettes with several raw and cured dishes, including the flamed mackerel with dill, cucumber & capers, a sea bass carpaccio with salsa verde & pickled kohlrabi and cured pork belly served with pecorino & mustard leaf.

The Ninth: Sea bass carpaccio with salsa verde and kohlrabiDSC07408The Ninth: Flamed mackerel, dill, cucumber and capersFor me personally, the pork belly didn’t leave much of an impression – it was definitely outshone by the incredible seafood dishes. The piquant kohlrabi and salsa verde with the almost buttery sea bass was really delicious, and the flamed mackerel was exquisite.

The Ninth: Salted beef cheeks, oxtail consomme and charred cabbageThe Ninth: Salted beef cheeks, oxtail consomme and charred cabbageThe salted beef cheeks served with oxtail consomme and charred cabbage was so tender that it practically melted in your mouth. Although delicious, again it was outshone by our other main dish – the whole roasted sea bream, which was served with lemon, miso and smoked aubergine.

The Ninth: Whole roast sea bream, lemon and miso, smoked aubergineThe cavolo nero with hazelnut pesto was the ideal side dish. It was perfectly seasoned, and had subtle flavours that enhanced and didn’t overpower the other dishes. We also had the fricassee of Jerusalem artichokes and truffle, which was a great accompaniment to the fish plates.

The Ninth, Charlotte StreetIt was all absolutely delicious – although on the whole I think the seafood dishes are the way to go,  which is rather unusual for me. The service throughout was fantastic (our waitress did a fantastic job of ordering for us!) and I’d definitely recommend The Ninth for an intimate dinner with loved ones.
