Up and down Rich Bricks

Date February 27, 2010

Strange title for a post. It is an unimaginative attempt at meshing a whole evening into a short phrase: a drink at Redchurch Bar, followed by Up in the Air at Rich Mix cinema, followed by a curry on Brick Lane, followed by a final pint at Woodin’s Shades.

Little Bay Farringdon

Date February 23, 2010

Is it French? Is it Modern British? Hard to say, but it’s cheap! This mini-chain of restaurants serves French-oriented food, I’d say, and considering the price, I find it good value.

The 606 Club got its name from its original location in 606 Kings Road, and it transferred its reputation and name to the new location in Lots Road, a residential area plus some industry such [...]

Wasabi at The O2

Date January 24, 2010

A little bit of sushi every now and then is a delight.

Or stressful, because you really need to be alert, in particular when you have [...]

Zeitgeist

Date January 23, 2010

I like this pub. Spacious and comfortable inside, ornamental central bar, though a bit tucked away in the middle of nowhere between Vauxhall and Waterloo, yet only a few yards away from the Thames. You don’t pass this pub by coincidence, no, you make a conscious decision to go there. And you should.
