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.

In anticipation of the (rather sad, I must say) withdrawal of +Google Reader later this year, I've signed +TwelvePointFivePercent up to +Bloglovin to provide readers with a new, simple way to follow my and any other blogs you happen to follow. 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.

At a time when every new restaurant in town seems to be offering 'sharing plates' which often amount to no more than a couple of mouthfuls (if that), Asia de Cuba's offering stands out as genuinely unique - everything's served in huge portions (at proportionate prices) perfect for two or more to share. Food is excellent, ditto cocktails. It gets very noisy when busy so not one for a date.

An absolutely wonderful room and excellent cocktails, coupled with good if at times over-fussy service, can't quite make up for the rather safe, predictable food at Gordon Ramsay's Bread Street Kitchen Perhaps conscious of Gordon's fading star, the man himself isn't mentioned anywhere on the premises or menu and barely even at all on the website. A safe bet if nearby but not worth a trip in itself

How can you not love a restaurant that serves a superb, whole lobster, cooked to order and served with chips and salad, for £20? The burger at the same price seems like a folly when crustacea this good is on offer at such a crazily low price. Cocktails and brilliant, the room agreeable of noisy, and only the no-bookings policy stops me from visiting even more than I already do.

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.

Simply the best burritos in town. Huge, cheap, made fresh to order (using fillings made several times a day including fabulous guacamole and SUPERB pulled pork) and served in cool, modern surroundings by staff who seem thoroughly happy to be there. Open late too, making Chilango an excellent option for dinner as well as lunch.
