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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

leave all ideas of healthy eating & unclogged arteries at the door and dive headlong and joyfully into the unabashed luxury and richness of everything on offer at the exquisitely-designed balcon. the foie gras-topped shepherd's pie is unmissable, desserts wonderful, and the divine champagne angel can match any food with fabulous fizz. great fun, super de luxe, perfect culinary escapism. i love it
