Standard PDBs offered ex-LHR. Flight was empty with maybe ten persons in J.

Small Plate: Chicken and Apricot Terrine
Salad: Composed Orzo Salad

(requested a clean glass) Eek!

Main Plates: choice of Sliced Beef in Korean Style Soy Sauce, Cornfed Chicken Supreme, Seafood Boulibaise, or Green Pesto Gnocchi. I went with the chicken and it was pretty decent.

(nowhere to drain to excess liquid on this plate)

Dessert: Roasted Hazelnut and white chocolate tart

Service was decent in flight. Drinks refilled proactively and water bottles distributed. Have to say, the wine selection was atrocious. The cabernet (Imagery Cabernet Sauvignon) had really odd notes to it which made for a confusing wine. The Valpolicella (Corte Giara La Groletta Ripasso) was undrinkable. Better than BA? Of course. Going for great? Not really. But sad to say, I'm a happy campy these days with ontime departure and arrival with anything above that being a win.
Had the same small plate and salad yesterday on LHR/JFK, it was terrible...
