@sampsonian I may have to stop bar service to your table.Have you gone all street on us, Mr @sampsonian?@Cesc_Pistol Not a problem. Seabass ceviche to start and medallions Rossini with truffle sauce for mains.@MarinaOLoughlin I would expect that wish to be easily granted in your household.@MarinaOLoughlin Have you been drinking already, my dear?@ShanthiNelissen Turandot. Champagne is essential for getting through Act 2!
@ShanthiNelissen I could do with it tonight at the Royal Opera.@Cesc_Pistol Oysters Brezhnev and Lobster dumplings to start, Beef Wellington to share for main!@Cesc_Pistol What do you feel like having, meat, fish, rich, light?@Cesc_Pistol Is this a trick question?@stonewalluk Helloooo, Richard, Jess and Lynn!
@8008535 Shall we book you in for the entire duration?@SaffPowell The private room is up and running except the fireplace can not be used yet. But we will be firing it up at the end of March!@loopymups You look a little young for our sort of place, o birthday one.The new Lobmeyr chandelier is here for our Private Room. This calls for a drink! http://t.co/cRZhLA3TX7@ChefTimAnderson @paulwf @NanbanLondon I clearly need to attend a pop-up!
@HERMANOPRIMERO @mriemenschneidr Had a fantastic meal there yesterday at the kitchen counter.@trizzy_l That's me in a nutshell.I like the cut of your jib, @Noolsx.@brockhallfarm Mazel tov.Suddenly feeling thirsty, but it would seem that all the champagne I've bought is in magnums. Oh well, it's a cross I'll have to bear.Fresh bread and empty London streets first thing on Saturday morning. Who could ask for more.
@TheProdigalFool It's work, work, work.@expasquelaphant Either way - it has to be done.Oh the irony. Have just arrived home to discover there is no champagne in the house. It's back to Bob Bob Ricard then.@HERMANOPRIMERO Now that you are out of town there is finally room at @HedoneLondon for the rest of us!Thank you, Mr @NigelANicholson. Here is one more x for your bank!@JontyFulminates @XanderArmstrong Your absence at lunch today did not go unnoticed, young man.@Supermundane Brilliant, I am around between from 2pm to 4pm.@Supermundane Would love to have some art commissioned from you again. When are you about Soho?
So we are now open until 1am on Fridays and Saturdays and take booking up to 11pm. Too bad I am never out past nine o'clock.
@LibertyLndnGirl PS. We will now stay open until 1am and taking bookings up to 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays!@BettyMagazine Thank you! xYou are making me blush, Ms @knwines.@sollyk @michaelhogan @ginandting PS. You owe us a birthday cake, Mr @benjiwils, you big cheat!@LibertyLndnGirl I could not help but notice that you were there uncharacteristically early. And here I am planning to extend our hours! x@Nelliegoodfood Sorry to have missed you, it was a busy week and I had to retire early that night.
@MarinaOLoughlin I may just have to adopt you.
@LDN I do!
@OliviaPhillip You and your diva ways!@SamanthaHorley It's your birthright, if you ask me.@Lukemackaycooks @hollowlegs Our kitchen is newer and shinier than my house. Surely a reason to want to spend more time there?@IanReenz My worry exactly.@PerfectTrough We take last bookings currently at 10pm, but could extend that to 11pm. Which probably means it would still be busy at 1am.@baconchop @scrunchmunch And is it?@soapachu Don't you try to make it sound like a chore, Ms @judeinlondon! x@malcolmcgraham Can not promise breakfast - I need my beauty sleep.@hollowlegs How late would you expect to eat on a Friday?@BonVivantLiving @LibertyLndnGirl We may try moving last orders to quarter past midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.How late do people dine on Fridays or Saturdays? Should we stay open later for dinner?
Time to go home and pour myself a glass of champagne.Everything ready to reopen tomorrow: the restaurant more glamorous than ever, the kitchen better than ever. And it's a full house for lunch!
@sampsonian Open as usual from lunch on Wednesday. So put on your best suit and come on over .
@MarinaOLoughlin PS. The fug lately is more construction dust than Krug. But I will be purifying myself with champagne come this weekend.@chiggi @MarinaOLoughlin We are open as usual from lunchtime this coming Wednesday, so any time! (the downstairs will open May 1)@MarinaOLoughlin Oh @chiggi, you have not lived.
@baconchop @ginandting We will be polishing marble through the weekend, ready to re-open on Tuesday!@GabrielleNYC All on track to open for dinner on Tuesday. The new bathrooms are beautiful beyond belief! x@TheProdigalFool The new private room for 16 guests. Modelled on the Imperial Dining Carriage and has a beautiful art deco fireplace!Can not wait for two of these beauties to arrive for our new private room next week! http://t.co/sOdL0BACfu
@TheProdigalFool Oh.@TheProdigalFool You are a bit too late. The champagne is gone and I am already staggering around the house in my Derek Rose pyjamas.@graphic_foodie @GaReth_Rutter Where did you get a picture of my bathroom?@chocolateguide New bathrooms. New private room with a fireplace, modelled on the Royal dining carriage. New kitchens to eclipse Bulthaup.@AnneEJones Bollinger Grande Année 2000. Absolutely lovely.@AnneEJones Me having a glass of champagne or the reopening?@Kavey It is indeed!@LadyVelo It will be more glamourous than ever, so your timing is perfect!It is time for a glass of champagne to mark one week left to BBR's re-opening. Not that I normally need an excuse.
@ginandcrumpets And a dash of gin, presumably?
@toomanybikes I wish it were biscuits - having a new kitchen installed. But the fire alarm has been sorted and should not go off anymore!
