Outdoor eating was a must on such a humid evening, so I walked up St Christopher’s Place and James Street neat Bond Street tube station, finally settling on Mimosa. It does Mediterranean cuisine. While I sipped on the (slightly too warm) Stowell’s chenin blanc, I ordered goat’s cheese and pear crostini to start with, and then stuffed and roasted aubergine filled with assorted vegetables to follow. The crostini was good, with some very nice roulade atop rather good-tasting pear slices. The aubergine was adequate rather than brilliant, and the wine disappointing. Most disappointing was the saffron rice – far too dry. Next timer I might try some of the roast meats which most people seem to order.
