“I have one hour” the impatient birthday girl announced as we were greeted by a line up of friendly staff who ushered us to our window table (as requested). The clock ticking, we chose a couple of glasses of house champagne and tap water whilst we contemplated whether to have a starter or main course taking into consideration that Birthday girl had a Valentines dinner to eat later with her Architect. A pleasant interruption from our waiter to let us know the daily specials, fish and chips with mushy minted peas agreed and we were able to relax into our bubbles and reflect over BG's melodramatic year and speculate over what future dramas might lie ahead. A waitress appeared twice with her basket of rustic breads whilst BG mused at the number of “suits” surrounding us in our casual Friday garb. Succulent giant fish fingers in a light batter alongside a wire basket of salted frites were laid out before us with individual pots of sweet peas and fresh tartare sauce. Contented and relaxed I imagined we would enjoy the remaining 10 minutes gossiping and people-watching, no chance! the BG was dying to show me what she was hiding under her long sweater in the ladies powder room…a baby-bump? maybe not, she drank her champagne without hesitation. Back zip trousers! Hopefully her Architect appreciated her Valentines tailoring as much as I delighted in our one hour of gastronomic comfort at Coq d'Argent. Bill £60 incl. service.
