My wife just loves Red Lobster. So, that's where we go. Works for me!
Is that a map of heaven?
Restaurants, a wine shop and a guitar store all in close proximity!
In the US, one can hire a concierge chef to come to the house and prepare a dinner for you. You could probably do that in England as well, and get the exact meal you want without distractions and compromises.
For our 25th anniversary this past January, we went to Disneyland and did not forewarn anyone of the trip except our neighbor so he would collect our mail.
The degree to which our (adult) daughter's head exploded when she found we were there without her was priceless.
Happy anniversary, despite your run of culinary bad luck!
I can tell right out of the box (yes, that's a pun and you are free to use it without royalties lol) if I'm in an everyday SYSCO or FSA schlock house. You can bet that also makes me a one-time diner at that establishment.
I remember sitting on the porch, drinking wine and smoking a cigar. A waitress came up and handed us a plate of lamb chops. "Chef asked me to bring this over".
Get to know your purveyors.
September, October and November are big travel months for me: I’ve got Olso, Frankfurt, Lisbon and Doha coming up, with possible return trips to Bogotá, Dublin and Berlin all before the end of the year, so dinner in England seems a slim chance.
It’s a good job I love my job and travelling!
Before I retired, my company had a travel dining policy of "eat like you normally do". KA-CHING!
Yes! It is.
On the North end of that, under the blue awning facing kind of South-Southwest, is Sam Ash, another large music chain.
I bounce back and forth between them and GC sometimes, and get a better price.
There is also a Chuckie Cheese in there for the children! YeeHaw!
Reminds me of a time we were in a similar situation. First choice restaurant didn't take reservations for Saturdays. We decided not to chance it. Second choice was packed. Finally we drove to Red Lobster. My wife likes it but I never was a fan. Turns out we had a decent meal. Unfortunately no GC near this one.
It's a dumb joke, Boris....it's a play on Fred Flintstone's Yabba Dabba Do...
"the folks in Abu Dhabi do..."
But do they have a Michelin starred chef?
Fortunately my wife retired a couple of weeks ago, so we could spend the day out together on our anniversary (Friday 4th), nice and quiet with all the kids back at school. We drove an hour or so into the Cotswolds to Hidcote Manor to spend the day in the gardens. Lunch in their cafeteria, and found a nice pub for dinner on the way home.
When I retired my wife took me for a surprise trip to Venice by train, no expense spared. We stayed in the same hotel Charles and Camilla had used when they were last in Venice. Went to the opera, took gondola trips, visited galleries and palaces, but the things I enjoyed most on the trip were a Baroque music concert in a church on one of the islands, and a beer in the local communist party social club, neither of which cost more than a couple of quid. It's the little unplanned things that bring the most pleasure, and least risk of disappointment
No but I was staying in Montmarte and found a fantastic restaurant with a friend and consumed way too much wine. And snails (lien escargot!).
Maybe it’s my wife. Maybe she’s jinxed!
Doh! I’ve only just got it!
