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.

New Blog Post | Barrafina is that rarest of things - a restaurant about which there is nothing to fault.

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.

if you've ever eaten at rivington grill, the ivy, or j. sheekey, you'll find hix comfortingly familiar, for all the hallmarks mark hix left on those stellar restaurants are present and correct here. food sourced from small rural suppliers, decor embellished with serious modern art, service artfully informal. the menu is slightly fish-biased but offers plenty for carnivores including superb steaks. the bar's charming too; the wine list, excellent.

a major disappointment. having had some memorable times at lindsay house and reading some exceptional reviews of corrigan's new mayfair outpost, i had high hopes; alas, the inarguably imaginative and exciting-to-read menu was let down by long waits for courses, inconsistent service (we barely saw the same face twice) forgotten items, a charmless sommelier and tepid food. at this level and price i was expecting perfection; this was merely 'ok'.

wow - no wonder despite being little-known this very chic italian is often fully-booked. despite some sneaky attempts to bolster bills by replenishing water & wine unrequested, superb food (the vitello tonnato starter was a revelation), excellent all-italian wine list - albeit somewhat bare at the lower end of the price scale - attentive, handsome staff and a classy, buzzy atmosphere combined to make our evening here near unforgettable.

julie's is an incredible space, sprawling out over several floors and multiple rooms, each entirely different from the others. we enjoyed brunch in the bright airy front room, ordering from a fairly concise menu covering all the basics (eggs in all manner of combinations, coffee, juices etc). all was excellent, served courteously and efficiently by unobtrusive staff. prices were fair although the a la carte looks steep even for this part of town.

lunched here and was highly impressed with the trad british offerings for every course, the reasonable price point (?26/3 courses) and the attentive, knowledgable, if very occasionally forgetful service. roasted wood pigeon was notable, as was peach and orange blossom trifle. some of the stickies with puddings are a steal - go prepared to enjoy a very drawn out third course with a bottle of yquem!

as a londoner one so often misses out on all the fun the tourists have, so just once in a while it's a hoot to turn the tables and see what all the fuss is about. and what a delightful fuss afternoon tea at the ritz's palm court is. this is quite simply the mary poppins of culinary experiences - positively perfect in every way. flawless, deferential service rehearsed down the years; exquisite food (this is quite the poshest 'all you can eat' affair you'll ever have); gorgeous surroundings, pianist 'n' all; and frankly a steal at forty quid all in. there's simply none better - go, go, go!
