Restaurant: The Delaunay, London WC2

There's an awkward subject to get out of the way at the start of discussing the Delaunay, Christopher Corbin and Jeremy King's new restaurant on Aldwych. It can't be dodged or circumvented: it is the presence on the menu of the wiener. Several different wieners. Feel like a wiener? They got 'em. …

Restaurant: Alyn Williams at the Westbury, London W1

Few trades these days are quite as guild-like as cooking. One of the main ways this works is that chefs start by putting in time working for someone else, often cooking in a restaurant that has the other guy's name over the door. Put in those years and eventually you get your chance to hang up your …

Restaurant: Morgan M, London EC1

It's ages since I reviewed a full-on French restaurant – a restaurant of the type the French jokingly call "Franco-Français" or "Franco-French". There are far fewer of them than there used to be, and it's especially rare to find them among new openings. This reflects trends that are more than …

Restaurant: Ceviche, London W1

The Tintin books have a running gag in which Captain Haddock picks up a glass of the local firewater, overconfidently chugs it and then almost chokes to death from the strength of the hooch.

Restaurant: Rules, London WC2

We all know Rules, don't we? Languishing there in its handsome Maiden Lane premises since God fell off the bus, serving doughy, doughty Brit food and carafes of claret to its audience of duffers, grandees and wealthy tourists. Yadda yadda, let's go to Mishkin's or Opera Tavern or wherever the cool …

Garufín, London: restaurant review

25-27 Theobalds Road, London WC1 (020 7430 9073). Meal for two, including drinks and service: £90<p>A decade ago I spent some time in Argentina working on a book about a plane that crashed in the Andes in 1947. It didn't sell. This, I came to understand, was because it lacked a culinary aspect. Nobody …

Restaurant: A Wong, London SW1

We're eating cheese in a Chinese restaurant. Cheese: how ridiculous. We all know the Chinese don't do cheese. They think it's alien, "muttony": not a compliment. But it turns out we're all wrong: cheese is eaten in Yunnan, smartypants. Called rubing, or milk cake, it tastes a bit like a collision …
