Tried Locale for a meal. Entrance is upstairs with hostesses to meet and greet. The bar area is open plan to the restaurant and was quite busy. We ordered a cocktail, a singapore sling. Having started trying these now and again, having had them in Raffles, where they were created, this version was more akin to a soda, not sure where the alcohol went.
The Italian food was really disappointing. The focaccia was poor, as was the melanzane parmigiana, which was burnt on top and had very thinly sliced aubergine and lumps of bechamel sauce, but no flavour. The meatballs also lacked flavour, even a good pinch of oregano could lift that. Sorry, but we must have been there on a bad night. May try to visit some time in the future for a drink but would skip dinner. That said, staff are very friendly.
