Catching up on a couple of restaurant notes:
- Gascon Cellar next to the Smithfield Market--good wine, good small plates, although I saw the sausage come out of a can.
- Great Queen Street in Covent Garden--actually better than its (favorable) reviews. Queen not quite as heavy, and they've added a couple of veggie entries.
- Oh, and perhaps the best of them--Barrica on Goodge Street. Nice tapas, but loud; a two-hour conversation with an old friend, all shouted.
