I have been dining at The Market Grill for the past 2 years or so, sometimes once a month and at times 3 times a month depending on my travel and other dinner engagements.
I dine out a lot and let me say this, I am yet to find another restaurant where the Chef has an undying passion for excellence, in food taste and food hygiene.
Food is tasty, cooked to perfection and served at the right temperature and I would say 'I can eat at the MG every day!!
Taste is very subjective and easy to recognize but not food hygiene. Unless you are from the industry you may not notice the relentless and consistent efforts the Chef and crew put in to ensure that the kitchen equipment, counters, floor, exhaust hood and panels are spotlessly cleaned EVERY single night.
I have worked in the industry for over 35 years and have dined in many great restaurants around the world (I dont think Thomas Keller will let you visit his kitchen at The French Laundry!!) and out of all dining establishments with an open kitchen I am yet to find a Chef who rolls up his sleeves and works with his team to go over this cleaning ritual everynight, same efforts, passion and commitment every night.
I bet MG have not recieved any complains re food hygiene that can be traced to this kitchen and those establishments that have had issues with food hygiene, they can learn many lessons from MG. Its a delight to watch how the crew works, after a tiring day facing the fire, yet with a passion and a smile!
Keep it up MG, you will nevr fail.
