Victoria & Albert's - Picture Trip Report
This may take awhile, after all there are 6-8 courses (depending on how you count) and 3 diners.
Background: DH and I have been here twice, both in the 1990's (someone else was paying). I recall it being elegant and nice, but either they have raised the bar, or my appreciation has improved (or both), because this was WOW (well worth it). This dinner was Mom, DS(20) and DS(18) - no special event, just thought:
(a) they were old enough to appreciate it
(b) it is on the DDE list
(c) I had some Visa rewards to spend
(d) we were looking for something "new" to try (for DSs) and
(e) it had been awhile (1997).
Summary: WOW. I have to admit, I cook, I eat, I enjoy wine. I am willing to spend money on food, but I do consider the cost (value-for-the-dollar) in my decisions. I can be happy with a really good can of beans. I can appreciate a bite-sized morsel created from 16 ingredients, 8 steps, and hours of time. I considered V&A a "once a decade" experience, based on price. I will be thinking hard about how to justify returning in September with DH. 'Nuff with the words. Here are the pictures.....
For those who may not already be aware, there are other nights to this story..
