On Wednesday evening, we went out for dinner with B and M at Scott’s. This is a place I hadn’t been to before and I liked it a lot. I haven’t spent much time in Mayfair before – it’s quite different from the rest of London. The shops and restaurants have fantastic flowers outside – and because they never look skanky, you know that they hire firms to make sure that they always look fresh. I don’t think people in Mayfair (and other areas of west London, as far as I know) tolerate shoddy flower displays.
To start with, I had Jersey rock oysters and then I had lemon sole. Both utterly delicious, although I was rather jealous of M’s monkfish and tiger prawn masala.
For pudding, I had bakewell pudding. B had that too.
Afterwards, we all went for cocktails at Mews of Mayfair, where I had two massive gin and tonics. My husband went on to meet some other people after that but I was done and wandered off home to watch series 5 of the Walking Dead.
