Latest restaurant review from Jay Rayner

Postby saffron » Tue Apr 11, 2017 3:18 pm

I have posted his reviews before on this site. His reviews are always an art form using words. There are restaurants he has enjoyed but the few he hates are always more entertaining. This one from Sunday has an enormous amount of comments. It is a seriously expensive restaurant in Paris, with three Michelin stars.

For learners of English some of the phrases are very colourful.

This guy is hilarious, what most impressed me were the pictures taken by him and the pictures offered by the restaurant...it certainly doesn't seem to be the same dish AT ALL!!

Very nice, thanks saffron :)
I appreciate all English corrections, especially on style! :)

His degree is in English and he was a serious reporter before becoming one of the newspapers food critics. You have to remember it is always first of all a piece of writing,
I am not sure I fully understand every word, but I always enjoy reading them.
