We're as guilty if not more of chasing after the new here at Hot Dinners, but every once in a while we get a good reason to return to an old favourite.
That was just the case with The Ninth, Jun Tanaka's restaurant on Charlotte Street. For three years now, the team there, including Head Chef Kevin Burke, have been building a reputation as an always-dependable restaurant for a good time. Twelve months after they opened, Michelin agreed and gave them a star which they've retained.
And the reason we were back? Well, Jun has recently brought in a Wild Pasta menu. Focusing on premium wild British game and wild mushrooms by the Vicars Farm in Berkshire it's all about celebrating seasonality.

The Wild Pasta menu at The Ninth is available for lunch and dinner Monday to Saturday throughout the annual game and mushroom season.
