Simpson’s in the Strand: ‘I can’t love it any more’
After serving Londoners for 189 years, Simpson’s needed a makeover. But did they have to change the menu, too?

I can’t believe what they’ve done.

Don’t we have enough places with those godawful servings of something or other piled up in the center of an otherwise empty plate and with little daubs or squiggles of sauce randomly distributed?

It is a tiresome presentation. It was tiresome 20 years ago. To go that way now shows an incredible lack of imagination.

These plates at this kind of place are like seeing Churchill in a pinwheel-beanie instead of a Homberg.

One expects something George Smiley would have liked at a place like Simpson’s.

Instead they’re serving the kind of thing Trump gets at one of his resorts.

Yuck!
