When my friend Regina was in town recently, the two of us spent a very long and relaxing lunch at Jones Wood Foundry. I hadn’t been there in ages since it’s inconveniently (for me) located on the Upper East Side. We went on a weekday and there were no other customers except ourselves for a while, which was rather nice.
I ordered the Haddock and Chips and Regina thought the fish looked huge when it arrived at the table. I didn’t think it was that large; I’ve had much bigger portions when I was in London. She ordered the English Cheese Plate and Organic Scottish Salmon Burger. To me, the burger was pretty large and it looked really tasty. I’m not a fan of cooked salmon but I think I would enjoy that burger very much.
With full stomachs, we debated on ordering dessert but decided to go for it. The Sticky Toffee Pudding is the quintessential English dessert and it was very, very good. To accompany it, Regina ordered coffee and I had my second pot of tea in one sitting.
And it was well worth it, calories and all. (We did end up walking quite a bit afterwards so that helped too.)
