Somewhere you should eat…Quaglino’s restaurant, St James’s

Quaglino’s in St James’s was imbued with an indelible glamour the moment when, in an early episode of Absolutely Fabulous, Patsy set out to Eddy their itinerary for the day as:

“…a little mosey down Bond Street, a little sniff around Gucci, sidle up to Ralph Lauren, pass through Browns and on to Quag’s for a light lunch.”

Patsy’s choice of lunch spot was understandable; in its Nineties heyday, under Sir Terence Conran’s ownership, Quaglino’s was about as fashionable as restaurants got. It will come as no surprise that it was the first place I rushed to eat at when I moved to London in 1994 and loved it.

These days, Quaglino’s is part of the vast D & D London restaurant empire and is, if not exactly unfashionable, unlikely to figure on many a Londoner’s must-go list. This is, I have to say, a terrible shame, as it’s still, well, absolutely fabulous.
