Bump. Had dinner in the Chef's library at Corrigans Mayfair on Friday evening. Food was absolutely brilliant and huge portions as well. Richard Corrigan wasn't on duty, but popped in to say hello and have a chat with us. Never been at a chef's table before. Unfortunately due to the pingdemic, they'd had 3 chefs having to isolate so they had to cancel a few of the reservations, meaning the kitchen was a lot calmer than I'd expected it to be.

Went to Le Gavroche last night for a friends 40th. Had the Menu Exceptionnel - an 8 course taster menu. It was unbelievable. This is fine dining like I've never known it before. I don’t think I’ll be able to afford to eat again for the rest of the month, but it was worth it. & to put the icing on the cake, Michel Roux Jr came to our table for a quick chat & we had a picture with him. Brilliant bloke & a genius.

Not exactly high, high dining, but would recommend a visit to The Old Inn in Kilmington, should you pass that way. Very talented young chef.

Blimey, just looked at the menu. It's a little trumpy and no Burgers.

Theo Randalls regional Italian menu was a present for my son and his girlfriend two weeks ago. Although he has eaten in a couple of three stars with me he was very definite it was the best meal of his life. Going this Friday to see for myself.

Very sad
