I used to got to Quaglinos a lot in the early noughties when I first moved to London, I’d not been for years though. So when my friend JP invited me for Sunday brunch with some of his friends I was delighted to return to an old favourite. We were going to their ‘Soul Sunday’ brunch which for £49 each includes a starter, main course, a pudding and unlimited wine. To start I had a lovely chicken liver parfait with compressed apple. Then for main I had roast beef and all the trimmings. Unfortunately they had completely ran out of roast beef and so gave me a ribeye steak instead, which although very nice and considerably more expensive was not exactly what I ordered or was expecting. however they did very kindly knocked it off the bill without me even asking which was very good of them. For pudding I had a lovely, if a little small, treacle tart. It was lovely and rounded the meal off very nicely though.



Quiz is a play written by James Graham based of the true story of Major Charles Ingram and the coughing scandal that surrounded his attempt to win £1,000,000 on the gameshow ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’. I remember this scandal happening and all the press coverage at the time so was interested to check out the play. It was really good, very cleverly staged and also interactive with the audience. The actor who played Chris Tarrant was particularly amusing. It really went into the story I felt and explored the story, threw up a lot of information I didn’t know. At the end the audience votes as to whether or not you think he did it or not. Apparently the results it varies between performance. The night we went by a slim majority we and the audience actually voted him innocent. A great play, I’ve recommended it to several people now and they’ve also been and really enjoyed it.
