Look, heavens, I no prude, but there a time and a place for

Marco Pierre White Wheeler’s of St James’s

had been looking forward to eating at the new Wheeler for months. The old Wheeler was an established fish restaurant, beloved by many, and in latter days a chain, which sadly, died a slow death after it decided to serve up pre cooked dishes, manufactured in a warehouse somewhere, delivered by white van and then re heated in the restaurant. Marco Pierre White launched the new brand in 2009 in a joint enterprise with Sir Rocco Forte of hotel fame. It looks dreadfully smart from the outside, and dreadfully expensive. It turned out that I was to be wrong on the first count, and utterly correct on the second.A few weeks ago, Mrs Aitch very kindly decided to treat me to dinner for my birthday. We canada goose sale uk decided to head for Wheeler The front of the restaurant looks promising a tiled, fin de sicle canada goose outlet uk style oyster restaurant of the old school, albeit empty; though our faces were to fall when we led into the main restaurant: a cavernous hanger, painted in a shiny red gloss (worthy of a tart boudoir or a 70 Strikes 1926 burger joint), uncomfortable black lacquered cane seated cafe chairs, and decorated with semi pornographic Bob Carlos Clarke photographs, of gigantious proportion. Look, heavens, I no prude, but there a time and a place for everything, and I have to admit that I found the prints utterly distracting. There I was supposed to be looking at the lovely Mrs Aitch, but instead, found my eyes drifting towards nubile derrires, clad in oh so kinky, skin tight shiny black rubber.I suppose the two big celebrity chefs of recent years have been Marco Pierre canada goose uk canada goose outlet site White and Gordon Ramsay. Rock n Roll Aristocracy versus Footballer Wives. Of the two styles, I infinitely prefer the former: all canada goose outlet eu Wiltshire long barrows, covert coats with velvet collars and Bristol motor cars. And St James is very much my sort of place. There the endlessly fascinating London Library, the understated Budd of Piccadilly Arcade (where you can buy those knitted silk Mad Men ties), Christie in King Street, that slightly naff bronze statue of Beau Brummell in Jermyn Street, the impeccable New Lingwood, and probably the greatest bookshop in London (quite possibly in the world), Hatchards, where, under the addiction of some form of bibliomaniacal crack cocaine, I have spent my inheritance over the last twenty years.The potted brown shrimps were good. Mrs A though her smoked eel a trifle bland, and her Halibut Provencal “passionless” (her words). My halibut was reasonably good, though a bit on the dry side. The caulifower cheese was good, and the braised red cabbage, excellent. We orded a Gavi de Gavi and were told by the sommalier that it wasn cold enough, and that they wouldn recommend it. I found this slightly annoying. Why have a wine on canada goose outlet online store review the list, if you are incapable of selling it? canada goose outlet niagara falls Am I being unfair? But service was fine, and the sommalier was charming a substitute Italian white was conjured up immediately at the same price.The restaurant was more or less empty apart from an odd looking canada goose outlet official clientele. To our left, a silver haired military type wearing a regimental tie entertained a svelte gentleman with a David Niven moustache (possibly Nigerean?). They moved tables to be out of ear shot. Were they planning a parachute drop on the former Nyasaland? Otherwise, there were some nonegarian Teutons with bulbous girths, reminiscent of Baron Bombast in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. And a few goofy looking American tourists. Swinging London it wasn was all at terrific shame. It wasn bad, but it wasn especially good, and for the money Scott or J. Sheekey would have been a better choice. And Mein Gott, Wheeler was expensive. Jaw droppingly expensive. It came to 162 for the two of us. This didn include a pudding, and we stuck to the less expensive items on the menu. Dressed Cornish Crab with sauce mayonnaise cost 15.50, Wheeler Classic Fish Pie is 15.50, and Terrine of Foie Gras is 14.50. Mrs Aitch found it all a bit formulaic, and I think she is right: I not entirely convinced that Marco has had much to do with the restaurant, apart from lending his name to canada goose outlet paypal the enterprise and dropping by to have a look now and again. Four and a half out of Ten. Sorry.had been looking forward to eating at the new Wheeler for months.
