Sorry about your hard day.

I went to the soft opening (50% off food) of the new Dishoom in Canary Wharf (Wood Wharf) the other evening. It was absolute bedlam in terms of service :lol:. Lots of people who hadn’t had a service job before. Anyway, it was really nice apart from that, and I had their signature (CW, that is) cocktail, which was three mini martinis in tiny coupes. Very cute.

Did you get a picture of the signature cocktail?

You’d think they’d do a lot of training before opening!

No, it was way too dark. The lights basically pretty much went out at a given time. (The server was saying it was a total nightmare and they kept *saying* it was a bad idea :)).) 3 tiny champagne coupes, all with different garnishes. Very cute.

The training thing surprised me, but I guess that’s what soft launches are for? It was good fun, but a total shambles.

I've never heard of a soft launch before. What a bargain!

My friend took me here last week. https://lumiererestaurant.co.uk/ It was pretty fabulous.

We have "soft launches" at work (not a restaurant). Marketing folk love it as a term IME.
