Last year I self imposed a rule of only allowing one dish per restaurant, this time I'm lifting that. Some meals were generally of an extremely high standard but I've not been able to recall a specific course that really stood out. Sometimes I can't always remember everything from an extensive taster menu in a long night of eating. Booze is a terrible thing. In no particular order apart from the dishes that occur to me first.
