Scott at Real Epicurean

Now sometimes I'm very very jelous of you, Johanna.

I'm stuck here in industrial Northern England, and you're nestled in London, on the cutting edge of UK cuisine...


my experience at chez bruce was similarly disappointing - a few basic errors, several things that were fine but apart from the cheese board, which was superb, nothing shone.


What a pity! The food sounds interesting, but when you compare what else you could get for the money, it becomes less of a prospect. OK, I feel less jealous now that I didn't accompany you ;-)


Hy, Jeanne!
I want to tell you that Thomas an I have been in Bad Ischl. We had dinner in the "Villa Schratt". It was really delicious.
So, I could once get a opinion about what you write. Sorry for the bad English. :-)

I've always thought that Chex Bruce was overrated. Which is a shame as it's really local to me.

For top quality food in the area, we go to Lamberts on Balham High St.


Hi Scott, you just have to come down here more often and combine a foodblogger event with a nice meal out ;-)
Dave, thanks for the tip!

A bit late in the day, but I'm a new comer to your site!
I love Chez Bruce (though I haven't been there for a couple of years now owing to Baby#1 and moving out of London), and I have to say I've never had a bum note there - sorry that you did!
One of the best things about it is the cheese (at a supplement, of course) which is terrific - if you do go back, I suggest you try it!
