Restaurant critic contemplates death by apostrophe at Bord'eaux

Jay Rayner contemplates death by apostrophe at Park Lane's Bord'eaux. The Observer's food critic enjoys a great lunch but "in the wrong room at the wrong price" at the Grosvenor House's new eaterie headed by chef Ollie Couillaud.

Zoe Williams finds the cooking subtle and experimental at the Bath Priory in Bath and a welcome contrast to the conservatism writ large of the actual hotel.

Matthew Norman visits Ukrainian restaurant Divo and finds it successfully reinvented after the critical mauling of it's opening period last autumn but fears a distinct lack of bums on seats at lunch bodes well for the predicted touch times ahead for top-end restaurants.
