Paradiso E Inferno

I love this restaurant and we have lunch here whenever in London (which isn't often enough!). We were there on Saturday and it didn't disappoint.

Although it's not on the menu, they made me a lovely arrabiatta (as they had previously). The house red is delicous and a satisfying, tasty and simple lunch, served by helpful staff costs very little.

It's a little gem of a restaurant that is definitely worth a visit.

Pearl Restaurant & Bar

Had a very special evening at Pearl on Saturday.

The waitress seemed to struggle with our request for a half bottle of champagne so after quite a wait, we settled for a very nice glass of champagne. We made our choices from the mouth watering menu and the very helpful sommelier made excellent selections for us from the mammoth wine list. Every dish was an experience. The only disappointment was the fact that my pork was very greasy (the menu didn't mention that it was cooked in duck fat and included belly pork). Next time, I shall ask more questions when ordering so I'm clear on what I'm getting as I had to leave much of the meat on the plate. Having said that, every other course was outstanding so it is unfair to let one misunderstanding spoil the impression that it was an excellent evening full of excellent food. Yes it was expensive, but it was a lovely and very special evening.
