I enjoyed a scallop (from Orkney) cooked whole with coco beans, fresh almonds and lemon verbena. The scallop was plump and sweet, and the hint of lemon provided acidity, while the coco beans were an interesting additional flavour note…

The service was, of course, immaculate, and the cooking as skilful as you like. But I find it so hard to get real joy from this sort of procession…

The Square was always good, but it’s got better. It has had two Michelin stars for some time; the lunch we ate deserved three. Howard is here in the kitchen every service…
