The Fat Duck
If you want to really have an outstanding dining experience, I can highly recommend going to The Fat Duck. A friend took me there for lunch based on my suggestion (nice friend!). It's a three Michelin star restaurant and the chef, Heston Blumenthal, is considered to be one of hottest new chefs around. He's self taught and earned his Michelin stars faster than anyone else in its history. Jenny and I went quite a few years ago and weren't impressed but I'm happy to say that experience has been completely reversed. It's absolutely top notch now. Don't go expecting to taste anything you've tried before. He truly does invent some memorable dishes.
