The Sunday Telegraph’s Stella magazine reviews Brasserie St Jacques in London and awards it a lowly four out of 10. Zoe Williams finds the eaterie – a faux French brasserie - “wasn’t much nicer than a Café Rouge” and had an “unevocative atmosphere”. However, she praises the bone marrow starter as “delightful”. Terry Durack in The Independent on Sunday’s New Review also visits the restaurant and awards it a kinder 14 out of 20. He says the menu is “so hewn from brasserie rock that you could order without looking at it”, and enjoys a roast baby chicken while praising the staff for keeping energy levels high with “obvious rapport and character”. AA Gill visits Vapiano in the capital to test out the conceptual restaurant serving salads, pizzas and pastas which hands customers a phone after they order to tell them their food is ready. He remarks that on every level – “convenience, service, comfort, taste and amusement” – the concept fails to improve on the more traditional format. The Observer’s Jay Rayner dines at Lemonia in London’s Regent Park and reports that the Greek restaurant is full of atmosphere and buzz. He particularly approves of the hot and cold meze as well as the “crisp-shelled minced lamb kofte bristling with fresh herbs”, and remarks that the £65 bill for two is good value.
