Dinner at Dinner

Ok so I'm a little late to the party - Dinner opened last year but last night was my first experience of this seriously amazing restaurant.  I'll let the food - or pictures of - speak for itself.  Key points you need to know:

1    The service, food knowledge and attention to detail is second to none.

2    You'll learn things at Dinner - there is actual knowledge to take away inside the little menu folders.

3    There are 74 front of house staff and 45 chefs at Dinner.  Compared to 75 chefs at The Fat Duck it seems light I know, but that's how far they go.  Practically one chef per guest!

4    What I ate at Dinner:  I sampled the Meat Fruit (forced to share).  To start with I chose the Buttered Crab Loaf, for main I had the Chicken cooked with Lettuces, and for dessert I shared (again, not my choice) the Tipsy Cake.  I also had the Chocolate Ganache with Earl Grey and Caraway Biscuit (the last hurrah).
