Jay Rayner, restaurant critic for the London Observer, headed out to eat in seven cities around the globe in search of the perfect dinner. In his book, he concludes that “My pursuit of the perfect meal was doomed to failure because I had been conducting it in entirely the wrong company, which is to say, my own.” Upon returning to London and eating at his favourite restaurants with his wife, he noted that dining with the right person can make the meal taste better.
