The River Café

Within paddling distance of the Thames, Ruth Rogers has been shaking up London gastronomy with fresh pasta and whole fish in her smart-casual, totally iconic restaurant, co-founded with the late Rose Gray 30 years ago.

We went in for a lengthy lunch: bass carpaccio, tomato and oregano as an antipasto; followed by ricotta ravioli with garden herbs, lemon zest, butter marjoram and Pecorino; then from the fuschia-pink wood oven comes the secondo (whole Anjou pigeon with Tuscan roast potatoes). Add some beautiful Italian wines and a Grappa and raspberry panna cotta, and it’s la dolce vita (more for a special occasion, but still la dolce vita).

The River Café

Les pieds dans la Tamise, Ruth Rogers décoince depuis 30 ans l’assiette londonienne avec pasta fraîches et poissons entiers dans son adresse feutrée totalement culte, montée avec la regrettée Rose Gray.

Ce jour-là, au déjeuner qui s’étire : carpaccio de bar, tomates et origan en antipasto ; puis raviolis ricotta, herbes du jardin, zeste de citron, beurre de marjolaine et pecorino en primo piatto ; avant le secondo en direct du four à bois rose fuchsia, un pigeon d’Anjou entier et pommes de terre toscanes. De beaux vins transalpins et une panna cotta grappa et framboises, c’est la dolce vita (d’un jour un peu spécial, mais la dolce vita quand même).
