Londres – London… more !

mardi, 2 novembre, 2010

I had a few days very nice in London sharing my time with Thibault and Emanuel ! As a result of our work, I am delighted to confirm that Pirata « Espécial » and/or « S’Alqueria » entered a few new and good places, among them: Hibiscus** – where I met the first french Lady Master of Wine… Isabelle Legeron (Wine Lab)- and Tierra Brindisa with Angel in Soho.

A few new places for my friends leaving in London, to discover whenever in the area and when shopping in Soho !

We visited some current customers too: Marc-Andrea Levy Head-Sommelier at Angela Hartnett’s restaurant: Murano where S’Alqueria is served by the glass…

The Greenhouse Restaurant with Alexandre, UMU with Kumiko, etc….

What a pity not to have enough time to enjoy food and wine….. Hope that next time I will be able to taste Umu’s cooking as my wines and « Pirata » especially is doing quite well with japanese cooking as in Haiku in Cadaqués !

Luckily I went to have a fabulous diner at « Pied à Terre« : A french restaurant, run by an Australian Chef – Shane Osborn-  in London, with English and French sommeliers..just imagine ! Thanks again to James, Mathieu and Manu….. Just try it, too !!
