    oooh. Love the Lempicka prints! A little sad they’ve gotten rid of the frankly Luciferian fin de siecle statues but they’ve moved forward a couple of decades to the 20s. Swit swoo. Will be swinging in (geddit) to have a goo some evening when it’s not full of their usual arzeholey clientele.

      That’s what I always disliked about the place, it was full of snooty sorts and gropey men. I’ll just have to spend all my time in their new smoking area so…

      This one isn’t a press up reproduction. I have vowed never to eat in a press up group establishment again. It took me a while to see past all the lovely interiors and realise they can’t put a meal together or train staff

    Will the sophisticated boulevardiers of Dublin still be ordering a pot of tae and two slices of sliced pan and margarine with their food ?

        …damn…after years of trying I finally got into the Manhattan…think I took up so much time deciding between fry A or B that I forgot to order my bread and marg…

    it was nicer before. smokin area needs heaters. theres still boxes all around the floor outside. Louis Le Fronde certainly sounds like someone who’d go there. . . and there is my quota of negative comments. off home now.

      Have to say since I got back I took it upon myself to do some research into sweet watering holes and this is my current fav for a cosy one
      Perruque and periwig
      These massive places always feel a bit cold to me but always liked the space in Cafe en Seine

      A bottle of chilled restina,a bowl of pistachios and a Cohiba enjoyed watching the sun set on another glorious Greek summer’s day.
      One of the great joys in life.
      Although mine would be on Paxos by the Ionian Sea.
      Marvellous.

        You’re both welcome as long as you know how to tie your knots; how to change tack in a Force 6 in 8 Meter waves; and can barbecue burgers on deck through a squall.

        Greek wine or Retzina don’t compare to a natural high when faced with real danger – it’s some buzz!

          I’ve done that on the Irish Sea. That’s enough for one lifetime. I don’t recall ever being more miserable. I won’t lie. I’m rubbish at knots.

          Sorry. Probably best not to bring me, actually.

            No bother, I’ll just have to leave you on an isolated Greek island sitting alone in a taverna with some beautiful, intelligent, witty Greek waiters tending to your needs…

            You won’t know what you’re missing on the waves though!

    Hmmm. Art Deco.
    Plus Whacker, Anto and Robbo.

    Was a nice spot for a sneaky late summery afternoon one in fairness.

    Bootcuts, brown sheux, statement cuffs, beef sinew between the teeth, a vague smell of vomit on the breath, a gammon complexion … It’s Christmas on Dawson Street!

    It’s like Louis LeFronde has an internal French alarm that goes off within 100 feet of anything even slightly gallic.
