Best meal of 2011

We discussed our last meal of 2011, but what about the best? Was it something your SO made? Something you got from a truck? For me, it was last Friday when my husband, a friend, and I went to Joel Robuchon's L'Atelier in Tokyo. It "fixed" some bad food experiences I'd had years before (In culinary school, I had tried salmon roe that had been left in the fridge too long by one of our teachers, and it was awful. Same with the foie gras.) Our lunch last Friday included both of those, and it was incredible. Our server (Sylvain) recommended we try Chartreuse, which we did. It was the most complex drink I've ever had. Every sip was a completely different flavor. Ok, enough about my lunch. What about your best meal of the year?
