Thursday 3 April: At Bertorelli's in Charlotte Street - UsaKousa stealing Dan's cosmopolitan.

Later, at Edokko in Red Lion Street. Oysters in ponzu.
Saturday 5 April: Outside Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool.
Sunday 6 April: Back in London, Dave comes around with 2 bottles of bubblies. We also have a half bottle of iSake Red Premium, as well as M&S Thai Green Curry snack and a wide range of German & English chocolates.

At The Waterway, a canalside restaurant in Maida Vale: my aubergine & leek, chargrilled squid with chillli & balsamic sauce. (The light on Usako's eye is from Dave's mobile, I believe.)

Dave's pan-fried seabass, rocket & parmesan, roasted turnips. All washed down with a bottle of pinot grigio & sparkling water.

Back at Hilton for more drinks. Dave offering a strawberry to Kousa...

...and to Usako too.
