A few years back a 3 course lunch with water, half a bottle of wine and coffee at Le Gavroche was 50-60 quid
Absolute bargain.

I'd probably pay 500 quid to see Johnny Marr in the right venue :)



Itholds 300 people-pretty good.


I'll give you 500 quid for your ticket!


It was worth a whole lot more

Looks amazing.
I saw him 2-3 years ago and it was such a joy to hear The Smiths songs played by Marr again and not have them trampled to Death by Baz and the boys behind Morrissey.

I saw him at the Roundhouse so not as intimate as that but not bad.

Great shirt too

Yes, the guy looks a million at 55. Some of the highlights were indeed the 5 or 6 Smiths' songs he did but I was thoroughly pleased to see the crowd go absolutely ballistic at Easy Money.

But, back to food. Blumenthal booh! :lol:

It makes me chuckle when I see him in the local area. He was out jogging in a gold tracksuit the other month. And seeing JM looking like a total rock star in the middle of Tesco is pretty hilarious.

Hittin’ the hair dye hard these days.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

To be honest there have always been a queue of places I'm more interested in going to than The Fat Duck but it is a place I feel I should go to as it is relatively close and, with El Buli, it changed the restauranting, and even food, landscape.

But it was the change before the Noma change we are still going through.

But I still think it is something I will do, I am intrigued. Just need to find someone else as intrigued who will pay for themselves :)
