Flagship restaurant in a Georgian townhouse

Wines by the glass

The flagship vessel of Paul Ainsworth's Cornish flotilla, No 6 is an imaginatively converted Georgian townhouse with three little dining rooms on the ground floor and another one upstairs. Striking modern artworks lend distinction to the spaces, and staff do their bit to bring a sense of occasion to it all. Many of Ainsworth's dishes reflect his researches in British culinary heritage, albeit via impeccably modern technique. Pig's head fritter is a sumptuous crumbed parcel of brawn and capers, served alongside textured Cox's apple, sweetly roasted onion and a cut of subtly smoked eel, a transcendent opening. Fish of the day from Cornish waters might be monkfish roasted on its bone in korma spices, ably supported by the regular accompaniments of white crabmeat on leeks royale with a sliver of crisped fish skin, or there could be a chicken version of Rossini, served in its roasting juices with steamed king cabbage. Sheer indulgence characterises a dessert of chocolate mousse and pistachio sponge that has warm caramel sauce poured on at the table. Skip the petits fours, and you might miss a little financier soaked in PX and burnt butter, the kind of morsel best not served by the tempting dozen.
