Evening Standard, 19 November
Fay Maschler visits Terroirs, 5 William IV Street, London WC2

Ralph Waldo Emerson's observation that "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds" is the quote at the head of a long drinks list at newly opened wine bar and restaurant Terroirs. Faced with the 25-page booklet - divided and described at some length by method, colour, geography and influence - foolish hobgoblin was how I felt.
Fortunately, the amiable owners and staff were well versed in the particularities of what is on offer, as I noticed, with a flicker of goblin pleasure, that the page numbers at the front of the tome sometimes don't accurately correspond with the content.

Time Out, 20 November
Jenni Muir visits Princi, 135 Wardour Street, London W1

Four gold Chinese statuettes stand discreetly above the coffee-making alcove in Soho's new bakery-café Princi, offshoot of an esteemed Italian chain. Do they have these in Princi's original Milanese outlets? You can't blame Alan Yau for wanting a little feng shui-style luck on his side. Best known for his wildly successful Asian eateries, his previous attempt at an Italian restaurant was the short-lived Anda on Baker Street back in 2003 (it's now the much-loved Galvin Bistro de Luxe).Yau's grasp of Italian cuisine is not an issue here, for this new spot is a joint venture with Rocco Princi, sometimes called 'the Armani of bread'.
