Albert’s Table is offering a sport-free zone on Mar 25

albert-s-tableWith the World Cup in Brazil approaching and promising (threatening?) a summer of wall-to-wall football, as well as the Commonwealth Games and Ryder Cup later in the year, Albert’s Table, probably Croydon’s best restaurant (well, according to Inside Croydon’s review), is promising to make itself a sport-free zone on key dates, beginning at the venue on South End on March 25, with what they are calling a “Ladies’ Night” that is offering a three-course meal and half a bottle of wine for £35.

We have no intention of being drawn into the inevitable debate of whether the restaurant’s premise is in some manner sexist – fancy assuming all women stereo-typically detest sport, tut tut – but we do hope that the management doesn’t think they can get away with offering a special deal which appears to exclude men…

There are three starters, three mains and three desserts to choose from, and the menu includes Cornish mackerel with beetroot and orange, smoked salmon mousse with dressed Dorset crab and pickled cucumber for starters.

For mains, the choice should include grilled sea trout with spring cabbage and steak of Lincolnshire beef rump with triple cooked chips, wild garlic and beech mushrooms.

And desserts may include chocolate soufflé with milk chocolate and hazelnut ice cream or crème fraiche panna cotta with Yorkshire rhubarb, hazelnut biscuit and rhubarb sorbet.
