Delauney

On Thursday lunchtime, M and I went for lunch at the Delaunay.  This is very similar to a place we went to in Marylebone called Fischers but grander.  We were a little bit early so had a drink (champagne for me, bloody mary for M) at the bar.

The lady came up fifteen minutes later, rather embarrassed (I think they may have forgotten about us or given our table away earlier) to say that our table was now ready and that as we’d been waiting, our drinks were free.  Bonus!  Especially as we’d been having a nice chat and admiring the cakes.

We both had a burger (medium rare, really good).

For pudding, I had the baked cheesecake and M had something called the Franz-Joseph Kaiserschmarren (chopped up pancake with plum compote and cream).

At the end, we each had a coffee (Kaffee Kirsch).

Afterwards, we were super full and more or less rolled out the restaurant.  We ended up going to a design shop called Aram, where we admired how everything looks and bitched about how uncomfortable the chairs were.  Perhaps I am too middle aged to appreciate modern design any more – I used to love that sort of thing when I was in my twenties.
