It takes a rare skill to get the combination right: friendly, polite, classy service; superbly selected dishes with great combinations of ingredients; and then the execution of those dishes. East Coast Dining Room has got it right. I might notch down the best of Frank Sinatra playing in the background, but that's a personal thing. The evening was perfect: oysters and accompaniments were exceptional, like a mouthful of the sea. Delicious blinis and pea soup as amuse bouches. Mains of cod, lamb, pork, mullet all superb, 5-6 components on each plate but nothing out of place. Braised lettuce, pickled courgette, romanesco sauce, chorizo chutney, tempura squid all extra little accents on perfect plates. Desserts of brownie, cheese, strawberry cheesecake and financier (cake...the most incredible cake), again with little twists and accents, such as coconut parfait with the brownie, toasted hazelnut crumb with the cheesecake. And to finish, wonderful petits fours - little chocolate fudges and wonderfully zingy citrus jellies. And all accompanied by a local Kent rose which was light and summery. A great night.
