Like a regenerated Doctor Who, what’s old is new again. I tend to review new restaurants and Claude Bosi at Bibendum does technically count as a new restaurant, having only just opened at the beginning of April this year. Except, in some ways, it is more of an amalgam of restaurants that have gone before it. Most … Continue reading

Le Dame de Pic, Four Seasons London review – Tower Hill hotel French needs better execution
In defence of the tasting menu. But not necessarily *this* tasting menu. There’s an unspoken rule that reviewers shouldn’t openly criticise each other’s work. This isn’t a conspiracy – we’re too competitive and too inept for such a concerted undertaking – but an acknowledgement that half-arsed writing and lapses in judgement can affect us all. … Continue reading
Moments review – the best meal of my life. And it wasn’t in London.

High prices are no guarantee of quality though, so I was fully prepared for an evening of disappointment at the simply named … Continue reading
Mix review – top of the world dining?
This review of a Las Vegas restaurant is a break from The Picky Glutton’s usual London-based coverage. Even though renowned French chef Alain Ducasse has a well-regarded restaurant at London’s Dorchester hotel, I have yet to make my way there. I have managed to dine at Ducasse’s Las Vegas establishment though, the succinctly named Mix. … Continue reading
El Inti de Oro review – a taste of Peru in Madrid
This review of a Madrid restaurant is a break from The Picky Glutton’s usual London-based coverage. One of the pleasures of dining in other countries is that you get to try cuisines underrepresented or entirely absent from London. Inti de Oro is a classic example – a Peruvian restaurant hidden away in a back alley … Continue reading
