Too much Tom at Aikens's new chippy

25 February 2008 by

Matthew Norman finds the food at auction house Sotheby's Café rather good while Giles Coren wishes there was less Tom Aiken's at his new fish-stock-friendly eaterie Tom's Place, but finds the Chelsea chippy perfectly realised.

Jan Moir at Are You Ready to Order? finds the service at Michelin rising star Galvin at Windows strangely second rate but the experience and food well worth a visit.
