Bill of the week: I’m dreaming of a tight Christmas

What’s your biggest restaurant invoice? For some City brokers, the good times are still rolling, so it seems. And it’s less about belt-tightening, more about easing yourself out to another notch.

According to London’s City AM, a couple of brokers were entertaining two clients at the Roux at the Landau restaurant. Adopting a philosophy that ‘life’s too short to drink cheap wine’, they reportedly paid over £1,000 for two bottles of Montrachet and another £500 for a bottle of Grands chezeaux. That’s an average of a cool £83 a glass – not the kind of stuff you make mulled wine with!

Wisely deciding not to drink on an empty stomach, they then tucked into platters of lamb, sole, scallops and foie gras. Puddings followed, ringing up a grand total of £2,003. No doubt they all made it back to the office for a full afternoon’s work – lighter in the wallet, but heavier round the middle.
