Lunch at The Fat Duck Restaurant

The Fat Duck is a restaurant located in the village of Bray, Berkshire, about an hour’s train ride from London. The restaurant is currently very popular for its success in creating unconventional, often playful food that also just happens to be delicious; so delicious that the restaurant was named “Best Restaurant in the World” by Restaurant magazine in 2005 (see http://www.50bestrestaurants.co.uk/).

I had the opportunity to enjoy a very long lunch at The Fat Duck while on vacation in London with a friend. I had not originally planned on taking photos but after seeing the first 3 dishes, my friend and I decided that both the food and overall experience was picture worthy. I would normally find it difficult to eat food so artistically prepared and carefully presented, but after the first two or three dishes all bets were off. The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. A once in a lifetime experience (for me anyway).
