Set Menus

Set Menus - last night at dinner a hot topic (i.e. an opportunity for a rant from moi meme) was paltry, desultory resturant offerings under this heading. For the avoidance of doubt, the set menu at Le Cafe Anglais last night was...

The lunch menu (Table d’Hôte) is similar but at £16.50/£19.50 for two/three courses.

OK, that's enough Anglais puffing...
