Quote of the day

"Generally menus are where the English language goes to be hog-tied and tortured by people desperately overcompensating, be it for the quality of the food or of their written English. If the food is good the latter doesn't matter. Mostly it should be about nouns: big, fat promising ones, with the occasional preposition."

Observer restaurant critic Jay Rayner, reviewing the Wallfish Bistro in Bristol - which, incidentally, passes his test with flying colours and definitely looks like somewhere worth a visit if I'm over that way in the near future.
