AA Gill at Marcus Wareing at the Berkley hotel in London finds the "meaty atmosphere of a food brothel". The Sunday Times critic who rates Wareing above mentor Gordon Ramsay, finds dinner less engaging than he expected it to be, and far from cheap. Gill suggests the granting of a third Michelin star for Wareing will help the talented chef relax and show a "little less rigour" and a "little more panache" in his cooking.
