There are eating out experiences and there are REAL eating out experiences. I LOVE to eat out, also love Top Chef and cooking programs. Today, Linds took me to lunch to The Square in downtown London. It was definitely the fanciest restaurant I've ever been to, rated two Michelin stars. I was wishing I had brought nicer clothes and was wearing nylons. There were lots of crazy menu choices but we picked from the set menu which was 35 pounds (greater than $50 each). I had a salmon salad with potatoes and watercress and white asparagus to start. My entree was an exquisitely prepared chicken breast with potatoe puree, spring vegetables and the most amazing sauce. Dessert was a rhubarb tarte with rubarb ice cream. It was all delicious and looked like dishes prepared on Top Chef. Lindsey's choices were more daring: A salad with a fried duck egg among other things, Bream (a whitefish) atop spaetzle and chanterelles and for dessert, a mango custard with sorbet and tiny fried donut ring things. There were almost more wait staff as diners and every need was promptly met. It was a great experience. Thanks Lindsey and Alan for my early birthday/mother's day present!!
