veryone knows the best places to eat, as in the most expensive. But it's harder to find places that do what they do well and don't charge an arm and a leg; places you want to go back to again and again. Here are my current choices for the Desperate and Dinnerless in London, Melbourne, Sydney and beyond. More exotic destinations are explored under Travels.

The latest additions to my London restaurant guide are: In Central London there's Yauatcha and Cipriani London, in South London the Anchor and Hope and in East London, The Zetter.
I have included a new review of Restaurant de Kas in Amsterdam, an unlikely place to find the restaurant of your dreams. What makes de Kas very special is that there is no menu and no choice. You get what they want to give you.
