Bloom’s in Whitechapel. Now gone to the great provider of Kosher restaurants in the sky. I believe the unique social circumstances which created it mean that we will never see its like again, surly waiters, wonderful beef and all.
Also gone and much lamented, my one time neighbour and bespoke tailor Jacob Glicker. For six years I was well dressed by a man who even his staff loved. I’m sorry, but standard basic business issue Hugo Boss just doesn’t cut it, and London bespoke prices are now silly due to ridiculous rents.
