When I read about this Restaurant I knew that it would be a lovely place to dine for my birthday when we were in London, so this is where we went.
Clos Maggiore is situated in a bustling area of London, in Covent Gardens and it was voted London's most romantic restaurant.
What was funny on the day we thought we had another hour to get ready and then my husband said it was 11.45 and we had a table reservation for 1pm. So it was a mad dash to get dressed and out the door to make our way across the City.
Our table was in the conservatory ( where it is the best place to be) it is really beautiful with pretty white cherry blossom everywhere and with a glass roof, creating a light and airy dining space.
The food was delicious of a French and Tuscan style and the service from the friendly and competent staff was exceptional.
This really was a romantic and charming Restaurant and I had the best birthday, because who doesn't like to drink champagne, taste delicious food and dress up in a pretty dress.
The pappardelle pasta with mushrooms was so good
Yesterday the builders were back to do a demolition job on our kitchen.
The past few days we have been packing the entire kitchen, food, utensils, pots and pans in boxes to store until the new kitchen can be installed on Monday, so that is why I have not had time to sit down at the computer. It was a good time to do a big clean out and a lot of things went in the rubbish - like herbs and spices that were past there best by date.
Today we are moving out to stay in an apartment in the City for a couple of weeks while the work is taking place. Look forward to getting away from the noise of hammering, sawing and dust.
Do hope all is well with you and I look forward to coming to see how you are.
