dined at Harryman House or Jordan’s Steakhouse he probably prepared

your meal. Most recently, Dean has worked for Marriott as a food and

Hi Dara,

I've just launched a new website called restaurantworldtour.com where the idea is to try as many different types of food from around the world in your local area and I was wondering whether you'd go and have a look, see what you think and perhaps give me some feedback. And if you like it, I'd really appreciate it if you'd start adding a few restaurants that you know of in your area.

Thanks so much

Dave
