Dinner @ Fenix

A late decision to dine out, on a Friday never a good idea, but a quick phone call and surprise "yes we do have a table for 2 available" It has been awhile since we have dined here and to cut a long story short, it won't be till the next.

We opt for the degustation and the meal begins with a liquid nitrogen poached palate cleanser - as it needs to be eaten straight away there isn't a photo. The flavour is based on a Lime Caprioska.
A glass of Jacquesson Cuvee No.729 is matched to this.
