hands down the best meal i’ve had all of this past summer, was the one at oliver and the black circus. i had booked a reservation when the restaurant was still called mums (and confusingly, a lot of people keep referring to it under that name), so i was surprised to find that the restaurant had undergone a bit of a transformation and had soft launched as oliver and the black circus. a rose by any other name, though – because the food was every bit as spectacular as i expected from reading the reviews beforehand. everything on the menu was very light, very modern, very into veggies – this chef has got it going on. we even ordered another course during our dinner because we didn’t want the experience to stop. the interior is nice, too – but it was too dark for iphone pictures, unfortunately. be sure to visit the bathroom though – it’s pretty, um, interesting.

    Oh boy, I so trust you on this one. I read about this restaurant on Petite Passport as well. I’m so making a reservation for this one! (how far in advance did you book a table (I’m going in January)?)

    hi kelly, i made reservations about a week in advance, but it doesn’t hurt to contact the restaurant and ask beforehand – especially if you’re only staying there a few days and don’t want to miss out! :)
