Site of the week

I had one of those moments last week where I finally ate in somewhere that I have walked past a hundred times before – and every time thought I must go in their soon!

The venue was Randall & Aubin on Brewer St, just off Wardour st in London. First point is that they do not take reservations which I often take as the owners having real confidence in the venue, and in this one rightly so.

I am no Foodie however what I had was excellent, but the reason to highlight was that the atmosphere was fantastic – buzzy kitchen, staff clearly loving their work and a really broad range of customers all enjoying a real experience.
