Blumenthal and Ramsay are way overrated. Ive eaten at Petrus and at Dinner by Blumenthal. Good food but nothing special in both cases. For the most part, pretentious and overcomplicated. Instead I ate a Robuchons Atelier, and the food was excellent, and while being quite elaborate, the ingredients really spoke for themselves.
