*in London but not outside zone 2/3
*Special treat type budget but not astronomical
*Any type of food but pref not sushi or Indian as, tho totally yum, we'd like a change

Mr Scum and I have both been working hard lately and haven't been out for yonks. I want to take him somewhere special.

Any ideas?

Upstairs with two bottles of champagne and a packet of Kettle Chips?

Am racking brains. The only place I've eaten recently that fits the bill is the Cinnamon Club, which is too Indian for your requirements but did put, shall I say, a smile on my other half's face...

ScummyMummy Sat 14-May-05 14:16:34

Ooo- if we had an upstairs that would be the perfect solution, mi. I bet the Cinnamon club is wonderful. I'll put it on the shortlist anyway as I imagine it bears little resemblance to our local budget Indian takeaway, good though that is.

Am thinking hard. The Melati on Windmill Street is an old favourite of mine (Malay/Indonesian food) - haven't eaten there for ages, mind...

I have heard reports about food at Cinnamon Club being a wild aphrodisiac. Now, who told me that.

motherinferior Sat 14-May-05 14:19:11

Some of us go to posho restaurants more often, of course, BP

bakedpotato Sat 14-May-05 14:22:06

Well, quite.
(We went to the Wells in Hampstead last night -- food was ace. And walked home across the heath in the gloaming... bats!)

ScummyMummy Sat 14-May-05 14:40:02

He's not up for the Cinnamon Club. Sob!

bossykate Sat 14-May-05 14:45:08

what about cellar gascon or providores (tapas room) or andrew edmunds

Bearess Sat 14-May-05 14:45:23

Quaglinos, Bluebird - do you like Conrad places?

Bearess Sat 14-May-05 14:46:52

I haven't been but dh has taken clients to Fifteen and said that the bistro place there (not main restaurant) looks really nice - he thought better than restaurant.

gggglimpopo Sat 14-May-05 14:46:59

What about The Gay Hussar in Soho.

ScummyMummy Sat 14-May-05 15:08:32

Thanks everyone- brilliant suggestions one and all. Especial thanks to bk as we have decided to go to Cellar Gascon for a yummy, boozy night.

bakedpotato Sat 14-May-05 15:17:49

oh, good choice

anorak Sat 14-May-05 15:29:18

Have fun!

bossykate Sat 14-May-05 15:54:22

have a great evening

WideWebWitch Sat 14-May-05 17:35:42

Oh have a lovely time Mr & Ms Scum! Bakedpotato I heard that about Cinnamon Club too, d'ya think we heard it from the same person?

motherinferior Sat 14-May-05 19:46:33

Hey, I don't get out much. Certainly not to such effect. In fact, ever, really.

Bear in mind DD1 was born a mere 14 months after I took up with her father. I have to gather my rosebuds where and in what rather more pot-pourri like fashion I can.

Have a fabulously scummy time, you two.

bossykate Sat 14-May-05 22:12:33

so, cinnamon club is recommended for, um, rekindling then, ladies?

hoxtonchick Sat 14-May-05 22:14:00

am feeling most left out MI ...

WideWebWitch Sun 15-May-05 12:02:38

It certainly is bk! MI, ha ha at your gathering rosebuds!

Prufrock Sun 15-May-05 14:27:11

So scummy - how was it? We wnet out last night too and, well rekindling was on the menu - once I'd managed to get rid of the exceedingly talkative babysitter- 25 bloody minutes she rabbited on for

ScummyMummy Sun 15-May-05 17:30:59

It was fab- though there was a last minute change of venue as cellar gascon was closed. We went to St John and it was utterly brilliant. Bone marrow on toast worked wonders in the rekindling department! Seriously fantastic evening- food, wine, service, brandy and company were amazing.

WideWebWitch Sun 15-May-05 18:44:29

Wow, sounds lovely Scums, I really want to go there. And you Pru. We went for a curry and garlic chilli chicken works too

Satine Sun 15-May-05 18:53:00

Umm.... why is the food in the Cinnamon Club such an aphrodisiac? Am I asking a stupid question?!!
