Tel: 020 020 7352 2908
Date of Last Visit: Saturday, April 14th
The Victims: DeeDee, K&A, Ann, Andy, Colin
The Damage: Oh I am so terrible. Maybe it was £50ish?
The Background: DeeDee is in from Denver and I am so happy to see her. In true Deed fashion, no trans-atlantic nap is needed. We walk across the Millennium Bridge and we have a beer at The Rake. We walk through a very quiet Borough Market at 4 p.m., we hop in a black cab, and then it’s over to Chelsea for dinner at The Pig’s Ear.
You see…the other weekend, I was brunching with Jessica of Ripe London and she mentioned how much she likes The Pig’s Ear. And coincidentally, I had also heard that Wills and Kate (used to) love The Pig’s Ear. And so I made it our destination.
The Food: I had that rough kind of foie gras. You know…not the buttery kind, but rather the big chunky farmhouse kind. Not my favorite. But not bad either. And then I had the cod. And it was nice. It was a generous portion. People would like the food here.
The Rest: The service was odd. He was not very charming. He was flippant, and I was not. Very unhelpful. And bottled water is a scam.
The Loos: One day, I will start my own business: power-washing and feminizing loos. Would your mother let your bathroom look like this?
The Company: Perfect.
The Verdict: A good date, or a meet-the-parents. Or a hello and a goodbye to old friends.
