The Colony Grill Room. Ticking every box.

He’s keeping a close eye on it, is Mr King. So far I’ve been during the soft opening, for two breakfasts (not together) and a rather leisurely lunch and he’s been there twice, doing that thing he does, welcoming you at the door in that charming yet slightly intimidating way, as he towers over you, making sure that […]

The Wolseley. An Old Classic.

Obviously, I am not going to keep mentioning the fact that I have got a problem with my back. You know, the disc problem I mentioned last week. Yes, the three bulging discs in my neck and the one prolapsed disc in my thoracic spine. I didn’t even know I had a thoracic spine. When […]

Aqua at the Shard. A point of view. A view of a point.

Love it or hate it, you can’t ignore it. I’d wanted to go to the Shard before now but a combination of laziness and resentment about having to pay silly sums to Mr Sellar to see it had put me off. And on the day, I was worried about not being able to find it. […]

The Great British. One of those words is accurate.

I had high hopes. I’d heard that there had been a good review in the Indy and I’d gone to have a look on my way to Le Pain Quotidien, the one in North Audley Street, a hop skip and a jump from my office. Not that I would be doing any of those movements […]

Hawksmoor. I nearly fainted.

I have to make a big fat confession before I start. I was meant to review this for The Lawyer for breakfast. I did have the breakfast, sharing the room with only two other punters, which, given the size of the place was a little disconcerting, but I didn’t get round to posting the review and I need […]

Brunch at the Duck & Waffle. Location Location Location.

I was torn, frankly, between the lure of Caravan, King’s Cross, which promised a more interesting-sounding menu and better coffee – and this. I was already feeling like a failed food blogger having not been there already so I went with my head and not my heart and chose this.

The Arts Club. Do you have to be a member to join?

In another life i.e. my fantasy one,  I wouldn’t be doing any of this.  I’d probably be running an animal rescue sanctuary whilst getting enormously fat,  but because I haven’t quite organised myself to do that yet,  I’m still a lawyer.  So I  end up doing things which go with the job. Like being a […]

The Savoy Grill. My review for The Lawyer Magazine.

September 26

Does it make the Cut?

It’s an odd place. In a former life, it used to be the Playboy club but all traces of that have been expunged and now we have a little bit of Vegas, right here on Park Lane.

NOW CLOSED Hot to trot at Bistrot Bruno Loubet

Having just finished my formal and grown-up review of this restaurant for The Lawyer magazine, I felt it only right and proper that I do one of my own personal reviews,  because (and this will not surprise anyone )  I have more to say.
