The Tatler Restaurant Awards 2012

This week has been a bit of a whirlwind of lunches, dinners & parties.

After the very grown up (brilliant) restaurant awards party at Downing Street, the Tatler Restaurant Awards were a very welcome change of pace. An incredibly glamorous crowd descended upon The Savoy for champagne and very naughty canapés. Sponsored by the wonderful Laurent Perrier, it was always going to be a wickedly decadent event! (Apologies for the blue toned photos, it was the lighting in the ballroom & I don’t use a flash… unlike the pros!)

Outfit wise, I plumped for a little black dress (this one).

Red Prada handbag, patent Loubies, a string of my mother’s pearls and a gold cuff from Violet & Rose.

After far too much champagne, we said our goodbyes and snuck off for burgers at Bar Boulud.

I had my favourite, the BB burger, washed down with elderflower cocktails. If you haven’t tried Bar Boulud’s BB, you need to give it a go! Topped with a layer of braised short ribs, a slice of confit foie gras, crispy shallots and horseradish mayo, it’s just a dream of a burger.

All in all, a truly wonderful evening with truly wonderful company! I felt like a very lucky little lady. Thankyou so much to Tatler for having me. I highly recommend picking up their new June issue, I’ve barely put mine down and their restaurant guide is my new bedtime read. Thank god it’s Friday! I’m looking forward to a weekend snuggled up by the fire with Custard . What are you up to? .
