Charlotte has wanted to go to The Set for ages, and they do this thing they call Chef's Table, where they configure a 10 course meal to your tastes then you sit at the pass and watch them cook it. So, for her birthday, we did just that. Naturally, I brought my camera and photographed a load of it whilst drinking too many cocktails.

It was an amazing evening. When a restaurant makes food so good that even someone as irritatingly fussy as me has an enjoyable and completely stress-free meal, that's something very special. And, most importantly, Charlotte loved it, too. If you enjoy food, visit Brighton and do this.
