It's great to see that Bermondsey Street's in the Weekend FT getting lots of praise from Nicholas Lander today.

But yet another incorrect fact in the article of a national news paper. Jose is not on the site of the old post office. Why do they get such a basic facts wrong?

Jac, LOL!

But seriously, I think the main point I want to get across is that after many years on the local culinary map the area is gaining wider recognition and not just from crappy Time Out but from a serious critic with a reputation.

Why on earth would you want that?

All it'll mean is that all the good restaurants will be full of braying commuters - eating there because there's nowhere in the suburban holes they call home - and the streets will fill with bimbling, gawping grockles.

Wow! Maybe he'll ask us to wear his ring at the prom.

Personally, I'm not worthy.

I'm also old-fashioned enough to like the things I like because *I* like them, rather than because someone else has told me that it's OK to like them.

Which is probably why I wouldn't feel at home with the hipsters of B St.

...if you press it, they will come.

Grockles, let them come! Suburbanites, you are welcome!
