French Meal @ Cote

Hi All,

 

 

_______________________________

 

Rain or shine or more realistically snowing like it is now...by bus, or train, or cab, I'llll be thereeee... :)

 

Please ask for Sanjay's table when you get there. We have the upstairs area reserved. I'll be wearing a purple shirt and black trousers

 



 

_______________________________

 

 

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year! 

 

If you're also coming to the drinks meetup afterwards at All Bar One then please also RSVP to that separately.

 

Out first monthly meal & drinks meetup for 2013. Once again I am splitting them into two meetups so that you can come to either one or both of them.

 

They will be providing complimentary snacks (different types of bread with olive oil and olives) and one glass of drink (Kir Royale champagne and a glass of soft drinks for non-drinkers) per person while we wait for everyone to turn up and order our meals.

 

Like last time, we will start at 6:00pm and get the orders underway by 6:30pm. They've told me the orders will only take 15 minutes to come. However, even if they take twice as long we'll have plenty of time to eat, sort out the bill, and head to All Bar One for around 08:00pm.

As usual when the bill comes, each person puts their initials next to what they ordered and places their total amount into the pot. Depending on number of people coming I'll ask them to split it into more than one group to make it easier to pass round.

 

Cheers,

Sanjay

    Hi, thanks for your positive comments. It's nice to get such feedback as it's, of course, very encouraging. We have a very friendly crowd that helps make, event after event, great friendly nights out. The restaurant was very efficient in handling our large group and serving quality tasty food. And with the added bonus of complimentary snacks and drinks while everyone arrived was a nice touch.

    The restaurant was really good. had our separate space, welcome champagne and snacks for free before we had really good mains. They even could split the bills per table. Thanks, sanjay. Next time again :-).

    I've just checked the TFL website, and there is no District Line or Overground to Richmond all weekend, due to planned engineering works. Of course, there is the "special alternative bus service", but I can imagine that this would be a pain in the nether regions. Therefore, I will unfortunately be cancelling my place at this event.

      I'm in town - I would like to head back out but there do tend to me w/end stuff going on..top spot (all bar one/cote and this travel update!)

    I think sometimes different people have different meaning for 'overground'. Some people use the term overground to mean tube lines that run 'over the ground' and not in the tunnel, and some people use it to mean trains as in British Rail. British Rail to Richmond is running, at least the one from Waterloo as Heather mentioned and the other way round to Waterloo for anyone coming from the opposite direction to Richmond. However, as Robert mentioned there are problems with the district overground tube not running but does have a bus replacement service instead.

    Regarding the Overground, I meant the North London line from Willsden Junction:

    Since I would be coming from West Hampstead, the fact that this line is not running makes things rather difficult.

    There is definitely an overground service to Richmond today (from Waterloo anyway). I've just been on it!

    I won't be able to make it because of the snow. Hopefully there will be another planned soon?

    I am away this weekend - what a pity this sounds like lots of fun! I will look out for the next one. :-)

    Hi Shaw,

    I'm not sure exactly what you mean, but basically when you get to the restaurant ask for Sanjay's table and they will direct you to it accordingly. I'll email my number nearer the time in case you have any problems finding the place. Around 6.30pm we'll place the orders. When the bills come (split into more than one group), we'll simply pass it around one person at a time for each person to add their money to the pot. Around 8:00pm we'll make our way to All Bar One which is just a minute across the road. If you plan to come to All Bar One then please also RSVP to that separately. Hope this helps :)
