We came back to 4Fourteen again on the weekend and were even more impressed than we were the first time round. We booked a couple of days ahead and asked for a table at the white marble bench looking into the kitchen. The restaurant was really empty at 12:45pm with only a couple of other tables seated. The waiter who sat us down and took our order was really warm and lovely but not overwhelming. One of the chefs prepping food at the benches was really friendly and started a bit of banter - we didn't want to initiate a conversation with them in case they found us annoying.
Our waiter recommended some dishes, most of which we had our eye on anyway. All the dishes that came out including their take on chicken wings, the chargrilled ox tongue, crumbed pigs ears and the mussels cooked in an apple cider sauce were really impressive. We were full but managed to squeeze in one dessert between the two of us to finish. We ordered the Bounty because it came highly recommended, and though I'm not usually a fan of coconut in desserts, I thought it was amazing.
I saw a few groups celebrating birthdays and so on while we were there. Can someone remind me in March that I want to celebrate mine here? kthxbye.
