Review of da Umberto, a Tuscan Classic in Chelsea




You have to be doing something right when you set up shop in 1987, in what was then an unfashionable part of town, and keep people packing your restaurant for the next 22 years. But it’s a love it or hate it kind of place as I discovered this week.

Blackened Swordfish with Fresh Tomato Chutney




A recent dinner was so good that I didn’t want it to go unnoticed. And it was another excellent way of beating the clock this hectic time of year. In no time at all, you have something satisfying and truly special that’s good enough for company and a terrific treat for everyone.
