BILL OF THE WEEK

THESE may be recessionary times, but there&rsquo;s no stopping us girls when we just wanna have fun. These ten ladies popped down to Old Spitalfields Market on Wednesday evening &ldquo;from a nearby major bank&rdquo; (no prizes for guessing which one), to celebrate one of their 28th birthdays.<br /><br />They ordered four bottles of Perrier-Jou&euml;t Belle Epoque champagne to start,, then moved on to Nicolas Potel Gevrey-Chambertin and a drop of Chablis to accompany their meals.<br /><br />On the menu was octopus, salt cod, halloumi, chicken and steak, as well as the restaurant&rsquo;s signature &ldquo;dolmades&rdquo; (stuffed vine leaves) &ndash; and all for a snip at &pound;1,018.55 before service. Who says we should be staying at home instead of living it up out on the town?
