"Once upon a time one might have gone somewhere like this and said, “The food’s pretty decent but the room is a bit uncomfortable.” In 2012 I think people will mostly be saying, “The food’s pretty decent AND the room is a bit uncomfortable.” It’s bizarre, and I don’t absolutely get it."

"Ducksoup was mood-alteringly good. If only it offered a modest selection of sides - there is an irritating lack of carbohydrate and greens on offer - I would say perfect." READ REVIEW
