BILL OF THE WEEK

SIX high-powered ladies with a healthy appetite for their meat and two veg – and for a good Dom Perignon – sauntered into 108 Marylebone Lane Restaurant and Bar this week for a sumptuous lunchbreak.

Feasting on a ham plate for starters and duck, rare steaks and sausages for the main course, they finished off the meal with ample helpings of cheese, chocolate brownies and cocktails – including one unholy alliance of drinks and dessert, the Baileys mousse.

With all that, they still left time and space for a few decent glasses of Meursault and Beaune le Cru.

All in all, the noon-time banquet set these high-spenders back a hefty £1214.00.
