    Sipping wine in an underground cave at Gordon’s wine bar (Review)

    Seven course heaven at L’Autre Pied (Review)

    This is course number three. Seared foie gras, baby artichokes with a delicate pineapple sorbet and a salad of wild leaves. Notice the glassy looking sheet sitting on the sorbet, that’s peppered sugar. Oh yes, peppered sugar. Are you ready for this? ...
