Oh man, It was so good. And I'm so full now. We got the four course prix fixe meal and every bite was delicious. I wish I'd taken pictures. We had mixed meat (prosciutto, salami, culatello, and chicken pate on bruschetta)/ fresh mozarella and figs with white beans for antipasti, lemon tagliatelli in cream sauce/spinach gnocchi for primi, mystery fish (sorry, I don't eat it) with lentils and cherry tomatoes/slices of pork loin with pesto on a bed of chard for secondi, and vanilla ice cream with an espresso shot/pear tart for dolci. Damn. The service was slow but it was just ... ooohhhh.
On the other hand, I certainly didn't feel at home among all the very upscale people eating there. I'd like to go back but at £20 for lunch it's definitely a treat.
Work is meanwhile amusing me: Monday night they're taking us on a boat party that launches from in front of my house (that is SO sweet), and our Christmas party is a Russian Mafia/"From Russia with Love" theme. Who should I dress like? I'm thinking about it SO much harder than I should be!
