Giles Coren sums up what Knightsbridge has become
I came across our Quote of the Week whilst searching for information about the charming Knightsbridge restaurant Chabrot. Upon reading a review by Giles Coren from The Times, I just knew that I had to share the most accurate portrayal of this area I’ve read yet.
Of Knightsbridge, Coren commented:
“Nobody knows each other here. No two inhabitants were born of the same continent. It’s Babel after the collapse, but with 4x4s. And nobody here seems to have anything better to do on a Saturday and et in those 4x4s, five or six a vehicle, and spend the evening crawling around in their own traffic jam, texting each other. Sometimes texting pals a few cars back in the queue. Sometimes pals in the back of the same car. (‘Hey, Ronit Zimzim here. Still got all my money. You?’)”
Coren is bang on the nail: The money park that Knightsbridge now is has sadly lost its soul. Will the last Englishman to leave the Royal Borough please switch off the (few remaining) lights?
