Plucked like a tooth from the pavement.

And it doesn’t even look like it has been hit by a car… We must have some strong teenagers in Blackheath!

Chapter Two Restaurant in Blackheath

Chapter Two Blackheath Restaurant

I went to Chapter Two on Saturday evening. We were planning on going to the Buenos Aires Cafe, having loved it the first time we went, on the Phantom’s recommendation. However, it was fully booked.

Chapter Two’s menu is described as Modern European Cuisine. I’m not sure what that means, but I do know the food was great. There were six of us eating, so we had a chance to try most of the main courses available. The menu was fixed – 25 pounds for three courses. The service was excellent… in a way, a bit too excellent, as though the waiters had a better idea of what the customers should eat than they did themselves. Now, this may be the case, but it did border on intimidation at times!

Despite this, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the place. All other aspects of the service were impeccable – attentive but not too attentive. The food itself was beautifully served, deceptively small (but delicious) portions, and completely filling. The potato gnocchi was outstanding, which as a vegetarian, I don’t get to say very often… In many restaurants it seems to consist of sludgy lumps of undercooked potato sitting unhappily on a plate. Not here. The chocolate dessert was astonishing – soft chocolate fondant on the outside, molten on the inside, with a serving of plum sauce, and a kind white chocolate ice cream.

I’ll go again.
