Chicago Rib Shack fails to impress as does Aspleys

Jan Moir from Are You Ready To Order visits the resurrected Chicago Rib Shack in London's Knightsbridge and fears that ten years after the previous incarnation closed its doors things have moved on in the capital's dinning scene describing the food as "filthy".

Terry Durack from the Independent is perplexed at what perfectly acceptable Italian urban peasant food is doing amongst the fuss and formality of a five-star hotel on London's Hyde Park Corner at Aspleys.

Malcolm John's Le Cassoulet could be the perfect neighbourhood restaurant, muses the Independent's John Walsh, despite the fact it's in Croydon.
