Dinings is a highly renowned Japanese gastronomic restaurant in London. The elegant, subdued Hotel Norman hosts the Tel-Aviv establishment. The place is comfortable and refined, the service is friendly and attentive, and the wine and tasting menu advice is excellent. Many of the dishes are very small and meant to be eaten in one bite to fully appreciate the combination of aromas and flavors. The seasonings and presentation are exceptional, including many clever contrasts. The incomparably tender grilled black cod offers lovely contrasting flavor. The beef tenderloin with its very original seaweed butter brings in a whiff of sea air, and the airy tempura concludes the tasting on a pleasing crispy note. The rich, creative menu is somewhat complex but fortunately the waiters are extremely available to guide us. Eating at Dinings is a memorable gastronomic experience marked by creativity, sophistication and quality. However, the place is not at all uptight and the mood is relaxed in the Tel-Aviv spirit.
