A little over a week ago, it was our wedding anniversary. We ended up going out this week because our babysitter cancelled a couple of hours in advance on our actual anniversary and, being the IoW, there were no other babysitters around. So we went out in London instead.
We both had the foie gras to start, with a glass of Tokaji. We also had a bottle of the Gimlett Road Chardonnay – it was a lighter wine than the ones that had come out of there a few years ago but it was still very good.
Then we shared the chateaubriand, which was extremely delicious.
We had a bottle of the Givry, which you don’t see very often. It’s a bit lighter than the Gevrey-Chambertin but the region is very close.
At the end we had cheese. They have a really, really great cheese trolley. You should go there for the cheese trolley, it is probably the best in London.
They also have a terrific pub (The Tavern), which is right round the corner and has great beer. We started off there.
