The best way to start a birthday celebration...
As it's over 6 months since the birthday meal, my mind is a little fuzzy (nothing do to with the bottle of Picpoul de Pinet which was consumed...) but I did take notes and below is a summary of what we had. I never thought I'd see The Hubs eat sushi - I have tried and failed many times - but the plate was cleared. In fact, every plate went back to the kitchen whiter than white. And the cost of this exquisite meal? Just over €100 including drinks, of which there were a considerable number. I'm not showing you the bill in case you try to book us in to a clinic. Suffice to say, we had a very merry time in Alexis and tottered down to the train station like Mr. and Mrs. Creosote, replete but very very happy. If you haven't been to Alexis, you should - it's just 5 minutes walk from the DART and opens Tuesday - Sunday inclusive.
