Wednesday, September 02, 2009 - The interior is all exposed brick, cosy wooden tables and quirky stuffed animals, while the head chef was poached from Guy Ritchie's Punch Bowl in Mayfair and clearly knows what the punters like...we had no quibbles with a velvety Dexter beef carpaccio with horseradish dressing. Welsh lamb rack was less tempting on the eye with its pretentious presentation, but the cutlets were delicious...It may not be destination dining, but if I were a local I'd embrace The Cadogan with gusto.
St Clements Cafe & Bar - 3/5
Wednesday, July 22, 2009 - Dropping into this magical little cafe and bar for an after-work drink is like jumping through a wormhole into another world. Nestled in the heart of legal enclave Middle Temple, St Clement's manages to evoke a laid-back canteen and an elegant parlour room at once. The food's simple, high quality and very English. In the evening it's just posh snacks...At lunch and breakfast there are more substantial takes on British pub food, such as duck egg with crispy bacon on toasted sourdough.
Thursday, November 20, 2008 - Iím not sure whatís gone wrong with the London ≠opening, which has transformed Trishna into an upper-class eaterie, but Iíd venture to say: everything. Sure, the decor is lovely enough, with its wooden tables and spotlighting, but this city doesnít need another samey gourmet Indian; it needs the verve and authenticity for which Trishna is famous.
