The time we had lunch at Joe’s.

London, England

Living in one of the world’s best cities when it comes to food and entertainment doesn’t necessarily mean you get to make the most out of it. Daniel and I seldomly go out for fancy dinners or long hours of while and chit-chat. With such a busy schedule for both of us, our romantic moments look more like home delivery Mexican and a movie in a comfy chair; ultimate relaxation. I would love to say “there comes an age where you just want to lie down at home”…. but it’s not really the case, so let’s not get into it.

So when we DO go out from time to time (yes, we’re not complete cave people), we love to take a chance and get all dressed up and chic. After all we live in a fashion capital, or what?  And that is exactly what we did on the day we went to Joe’s on Draycott Avenue. The time that afternoon stopped, and we spent a few hours wining and lunching, in the nice ambiance of the restaurant in Chelsea. Coming from a family where food is a “world with no boundaries” I’ve learned to pretty much eat and enjoy everything, especially when it’s something my tongue has never tasted before. And Joe’s is the perfect place to do that. Small Menus always win my heart because one of my worst qualities is the inability to make a decision, therefore a short but great selection of food keeps my nerves in place. Good wines are a blood and ethnical necessity. Food with a twist, traditional dishes done differently aren’t so common these days but I enjoy them more than anything. Joe’s had everything to keep me happy and I just can’t wait to go back.
