It was a hot London's day and we were watching Wimbledon before realising how late it was and that we needed dinner. Staying in Mayfair we wandered around to find a place happened upon Chuc's which has only been open for two days. There was only five people there – two just having drinks. We sat down, asked questions about the menu, ordered drinks, and then the manager (10-15 mins later) came over said there was a dress code and asked us to leave. We were dressed neatly in shorts and sandals after a day of appointments and watching wimbledon in the park. Oddly enough, we even went in the same clothes to a much more exclusive restaurant in Chelsea earlier in the day. We understand dress codes in the evening (being from Paris, having lived in Britain, Australia and Canada), but not in an almost empty restaurant on day 2 of business and after we had been seated, with our drinks order taken and asked questions about the menu. In the circumstances it was rude and unnecessary.
We took our business to an amazing place 5 doors down on the opposite side of the road (also an Italian) called Alloro I believe and the food and service was 5 star. Go there instead.
