I liked this short story about Patrick, who lost his lover to HIV. He receives the gift of an exclusive Christmas dinner from and unknown friend. At first he doesn't want to go, but the restaurant's manager convinces him. He realizes that spending an evening with another man means saying goodbye to his dead lover and what they had.

I liked the description of Patrick's sadness and how he's beginning to come out of it. His gradual return to life, lead by his new lover, is surprisingly romantic.

Wow, what a fascinating idea for a Christmas present - a reservation at this I can't say more without spoiling anything. You can tell the author loves to cook. He also describes the waiter, Gio, in exquisite detail.
