BILL OF THE WEEK

TO recently-relaunched Piccadilly power dining hotspot Criterion on Friday evening for a lavish &pound;2,767.50 dinner for four.<br /><br />Our distinguished patrons certainly had taste &ndash; they ordered two bottles of 1999 Perrier Jouet champagne to kick off the evening, followed by vodka cocktails and bottles of 2004 Chassagne Montrachet, 1996 Chateau Mouton Rothschild and a magnum of 2003 Brunello di Montalcino to accompany their king scallops, foie gras, oysters, lobster and Aberdeen Angus steak.<br /><br />They then brought the evening to a cracking close with decadent desserts and coffees, as well as vintage Taylor&rsquo;s port and a double round of Ducastaing 1959 armagnacs. Were there a few sore heads the next day, perchance?
