WELCOME TO MY WORLD

I recently went to Mexico and sampled all sorts
of insects. It was very I'm A Celebrity Get Me
Out Of Here! But it was delicious. My favourite
was grasshoppers on � at bread with mezcal.
My two joint favourite
cocktails are the
Negroni and the
espresso martini. They
are � ne examples of
how classics are hard
to beat. I'll most often
be found drinking
them after midnight
in the Groucho Club
on Dean Street.
It's very important that kids feel
comfortable eating in restaurants.
We are very child friendly and
allow kids under 10 to eat
for free during the day.
