A truly wonderful lunch in the food capital of the world.
We were received as though we were returning Royalty, our greeting was simply wonderful and we were offered the best table in the house.
The kindness and charm of the staff was completely unexpected, overwhelming and most touching.
In order to steady ourselves we ordered a little champagne, a chariot of champagne duly arrived to enable us to make our selection. The champagne we chose was in fact the one that we drink at home, the only difference being in the price per glass, but so what, this was a once in a lifetime anniversary.
There are two or three set menus.
Previously, never having been to to this establishment, we decided to order from the set lunch menu. We were at once congratulated upon our 'excellent' choice and told that if there was anything on the lunch menu that did not appeal to us they were very 'relaxed' about our finding a substitute dish from one of their other menus.
The whole extraordinarily wonderful experience intensified from there.
We take the view that the only reason to go to the expense of eating in a two or three starred Michelin restaurant is to enable us to experience new and beautiful flavours, this we did in 'spades'.
The only slight concern was that my 'partner' found two of the courses a little salty.
Please dear readers, just go to Bosi and you will understand what I am on about, the fish course alone was worth the cost of the final biil.
That Michelin has not upgraded this restaurant from two to three stars is more of a reflection upon Michelin than the actual restaurant itself.
One last utter joy was that each order from the lunch menu includes a half bottle of wine.
We are so privileged to have been granted such a fabulous experience, the food we ate from this ever changing menu was, for us at least, better than the equivalent at Bray.
Thank you Monsieur Bosi!
