My Fab Places

 



 

Bibendum:
Michelin House , 81 Fulham Road 0871 5086518
romantic, small - my favourite! (once I was taken here and when I started to ask for something slightly different on the menu (so not done in London - the chefs are SO precious!) my boyfriend at the time threw his napkin down land eft me shouting that he had finally had enough taking me to all the best restaurants only to have me always wanting to change the menu. I sat for ages with everyone staring at me - and finally had to pay for the meal and leave - the waiter really enjoyed it!! i never saw him again!!)

The Cow:
