Had dinner here this week - blog post coming soon - and really enjoyed it. Warm, friendly, very elegant but informal, and great food at very fair prices.

Sign up is super-quick (you can sign in with +Facebook+ or create an account in seconds) and create reading lists and groups just like in Reader.

Are you having (or at least trying to have) a #DryJanuary? Tiring of the all-too-familiar water, cola and orange juice? I've rounded up some of the London restaurants offering more interesting alcohol-free options, for +The Telegraph

I was delighted to be asked to share my thoughts on The Art of Exceptional Service by National Waiters Day, a fantastic initiative which I am wholeheartedly supporting.

What do you think makes exceptional service? And who are your Front of House heroes?
National Waiters Day, a day to celebrate all front of house staff and inspire people about careers in the Hospitality industry.

Anyone who feels that 'foodieism' has gone just a little too far these days will enjoy these hilarious videos made by +Randy Eisenberg 'Foodies - The Show'. I love them all, but episodes 1 and 4 are particularly brilliant. Please share them widely - I think these deserve to reach a huge audience.

One of the most exciting, innovative and cleverly put-together meals I've had anywhere, in fact probably only Hibiscus comes close. A dish of peas and mint - the freshest shelled peas, a chilled pea puree, pea shoots and mint granita - was astonishing. Some dishes weren't as gasp-for-breath delicious as others but everything we ate was very good. It's incredible value too; set lunch is just £21 for 3 course/£24 for 4, seven course tasting menu is £49. The room is modern and funky, staff are lovely, the only downside in fact is getting a table - next lunch slot is late August 2012.

with a three course meal costing £13 and drinks byo, bonnington cafe - london's most famous, and possibly only, commune-run vegetarian restaurant - is hard to beat both for value and ethics. quality can vary wildly depending on which chef is on duty on any given day, and the arcane booking system is a complete pain, but bonnington cafe more than makes up for any flaws in sheer character & charm.

without doubt one of 2011's most exciting openings, brunswick house cafe offers imaginative, thoughtfully put together menu of modern british food to suit all palates at prices to suit any pocket. weekend brunch is a great treat especially in summer when the courtyard beckons. the room is splendid, cocktails & wines tempting, and only occasionally inattentive service lets the whole down. fabulous.

Prices that are rather too high for the (still very good) quality of food are the only thing that let Bistrotheqe down; it's truly one of the capital's most unique and exciting restaurants. Its ever-buzzing atmosphere, anything goes attitude and cutting edge fashionableness make it perfect for any occasion; the alt-cabaret in the theatre downstairs never fails to entertain.

Very, very expensive, and despite the best efforts of the friendly staff, rather stiff, but this is by some way one of the best restaurants in the capital for any sort of special occasion. Heinz Beck might have as little to do with Apsleys as Gordon Ramsay has with...well any of his restaurants, but whoever IS in the kitchen is damned good. Desserts are especially thrilling.

The decor's a bit so-what and service can veer from overly-pushy to neglectful, but Bocca di Lupo's really all about the food and it's hard to beat for the sheer freshness, quality and thought that goes into the pan-Italian menu. Whole roast birds & fish compete for attention with pasta, cured meats and seafood straight from the sea that day. Prices soon add up but a meal at Bocca is always a joy.

Taking an imaginative approach to the sharing plates model, Bond + Brook allows diners to choose a selection of dishes for a fixed price. The room is eye-catching with some chic design touches befitting its location on the fashion floor of a department store. Quality is excellent, service efficient.
