Saturday night we dined at Magdalen in London Bridge. I loved the ox-blood walls and bentwood chairs and paper tablecloths, wine by the carafe and tinkling piano on the stereo... not to mention the potted crab, spiked with cayenne, served a miniature earthenware pot. Scallops with garlic and breadcrumbs, fish stew with gurnard and mussels, roast lamb with butter beans - and pudding: a sticky, glossy tarte tatin - with two spoons (well, it was Valentine's Day).
