As soon as I see her I know this is going to be a special evening. We both love our conversations. About travelling, about art. About good food, about books and about exhibitions. About the past, about us. Here we are in exactly the right atmosphere. The restaurant is filled with thousands of sounds. It is almost like an LP on repeat mode with people bustling and glasses that rinkel, all blending in smoothly on the beat of the music. The perfect surrounding for a good conversation. We start off with a glass of wine. And share the oysters. We always have so much to talk about. I take the veal, that sounds cosy. And of course she takes the rib-eye. ‘I am a carnivoor’ she says to the waiter.
