Went out to Indian Summer with Padraig and Mary last night. We had a lovely evening. Food was good - except for the aubergines in my fish and prawn dish: they were very sour, and I had to leave them to the side. The restaurant was extremely busy - busier than I've ever seen it. It was a Saturday night after all, and we were a little later than usual. It's nice to see them doing well, but I get the feeling they were a bit rushed off their feet, and the kitchen had difficulty coping with the volume of orders. Brendan's dish was cool when it arrived at the table, a sure sign of an overwhelmed kitchen. Still, it didn't spoil our night. It was great to be able to meet up, particularly when their baby sitter only confirmed his availability at the last minute. We had no such problem with Willow!
