Elegant Enigmas: The Art of Edward Gorey at the Boston Athenæum. Lunch of strawberries, prosciutto, crackers, cheese, a chocolate croissant and a Bueno Bar from Lambert's Marketplace. Restaurant Week dinner at Marliave: rarebits with farmhouse cheeses, lager and bacon and escargot for starters, Beef Wellington and diver scallops with pea-filled ravioli and a mushroom medley for mains and a selection of cheeses with lavender honey and the best butterscotch pudding I've ever had for dessert. Drinks: the Waterloo (Bombay Saphire, Champagne, Citronage, Lemon) and the Great Experiment (Hendrick's Gin, Mint, Lemon, Orange and Cucumber).
