BILL OF THE WEEK

IT HAS been a record week for Ilia on Draycott Avenue, helped by employees at a West London wealth management firm, who enjoyed an opulent mid-week lunch for five. The financiers started with a Magnum of Deutz champagne before ordering Tuscan wines Tignanello, Sassicaia and Ornellaia to complement their Italian dishes, followed by two bottles of vintage Gaia e Rey Chardonnay. Let’s hope they made less noise when they rolled out at half-past four than diners at the owner’s other venture 1 Lombard Street, which last week issued slippers to customers after the Lord Mayor served a noise abatement order on the City business.
