BILL OF THE WEEK

IN SPITE of the return of the monster bonus, it seems bankers are still keen to show they&rsquo;re savvy when it comes to watching the pennies. This, of course, is all relative, since most people wouldn&rsquo;t consider forking out &pound;1,017.28 on dinner for three as tantamount to saving money. But one banker in the party insists the restaurant was specifically chosen to test its policy of low mark-ups on reserve wines, so there you go.<br /><br />The group wetted their whistles with bottles of Krug 1996, Dom Perignon Oenotheque 1995, Louis Roederer Cristal 2002, Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill 1996 and Bollinger Grande Annee 2000. <br /><br />And to soak up all that fizz? Nothing but two plates of chips and two platters of cheese, adding a real touch of class to the proceedings.
