Fay Maschler visits Corrigan's Mayfair, 28 Upper Grosvenor Street, London W1

The first person I ran into at Richard Corrigan's new restaurant was Rowley Leigh, chef/proprietor of Le Café Anglais and, to my mind, author of the most alluring menu in London. "I saw Corrigan's menu and I had to come," said Rowley. It is indeed a work of art. And artlessness. Corrigan was raised, one of seven, on a small farm in the middle of bog land in County Meath. He describes it as the last gasp of a rural area that in most places in Ireland had disappeared 20 to 30 years before.

Time Out, 6 November
Charmaine Mok visits Min Jiang, Royal Garden Hotel, 2-4 Kensington High Street, London W8

What can we say about Min Jiang, the new Chinese restaurant on the tenth floor of Kensington's Royal Garden Hotel? It's perfectly nice, in the way that vanilla is. The decor was positively inoffensive - a cream colour scheme with the occasional splash of red and handsome dark wood accents. And it has a spectacular view of Kensington Park, though only seen by day; by night, our view was rather more narcissistic as we peered at reflections of ourselves. The food, too, was nice. Xiao long bao were well made, the thin dumpling skins encasing a wonderfully aromatic broth - an auspicious start.
