Tatiana was over from Geneva and her cousin Sarah up from the South Coast. Together the three of us sit as a Council advising on a company's heritage. After a pleasant champagne reception at Bonhams in Bond Street to have a private preview of the following daty's Russian sale as well as the book launch of Russian Decorative Arts by Cynthia Sparke, we headed for Shepherds Market, as it was near Tatiana's hotel and because it has a very good Lebanese restaurant - Tatiana lived in Beirut for a couple of years in the 1960s. We sat inside as it was just a fraction too cool for the ladies, even with terrace heaters. As usual there was a warm welcome by the staff. Although I had requested a window table, we sat at the heart of the restaurant, but with windows on two sides, this did not really matters. For London restaurants it had a lower than usual noise level, which made conversation easy. We had three starters, which we shared and three main courses which generally kept to ourselves. The glasses of Lebanese was acceptable and the selection of sweets with ice cream ideal. In all, a good evening.
