We all know a similar, familiar drill in a restaurant of cuisine not yet rendered public property by mass-marketing. A journey, too, of childlike curiosity, piqued by the exotic or obscure on the menu. Eyes widen as the familiar and foreign interplay. Relieved laughter offers conclusion when it turns out to be delicious.

Lana and I went for brunch today at a place she's been raving about for years. Hidden in a former clothing factory in Hackney, the entrance is totally unmarked. Parking directly outside the front door we headed in, past what is now a private dining room, which apparently used to be a drag performance space. Sad that's gone.

Grabbing a pint in the pub with an old friend or going to dinner with loved ones are some of our favourite ways to spend quality time social time with our nearest and dearest.

Vana C. Koutsomitis

When was the last time you took time to meet someone for lunch outside the office? According to research in the UK, it probably wasn't recently. It is a real shame that the business lunch has been dying out because I am a firm believer in taking the time to get to know someone out of the office environment. If you want to seal a deal, or make a business partnership, I believe it is best to do so over lunch.
