Vivek Singh, Executive Chef & CEO, Cinnamon Club/ Cinnamon Soho/ Cinnamon Kitchen "Not many new Indian restaurants, other than the second branch of Dishoom.
Ernesto Paiva, Executive Chef, Garufin "Starbucks not paying its fare share of tax -- very disappointing. Not having found the time to go to The London Cocktail Club and restaurants in London still closing so early! I love to eat late, although it's not meant to be good for you (but isn’t that the case with most of the good things in life?!).
Clive Watson, Co-owner, Village East/ The Garrison/ The Riding House Cafe "No disappointments for us, perhaps with the exception of the ‘Olympics exodus’. Where did everybody go?
Peter Prescott, Director, Prescott & Conran, Boundary Hotel/ Albion Cafe/ Lutyens Restaurant "Edwin’s Wine Bar. I also dined at a couple of 2-Michelin-starred restaurants in the UK and 3-star restaurants in France and unfortunately all were disappointing. I think Michelin have done a lot of good work at the 1-star level, but beyond this, the experience is generally overwrought and overpriced.
