Overheard: 20th January

Classic clangers from the last week

 

Bussing a holiday

On a bus on Kensington High Street, a student was overheard to remark to her boyfriend: “I want a chalet in the South of France”. A well-heeled local chipped in: “No, darling, you mean a villa. You’ll be wanting a chalet in Zermatt though too”.

 

Oliver Estreich expressed his distaste for the expensive Bellinis at Cipriani in an Instagram post

 

Smashing the Bellini

New Yorker and founder of The Native Society Oliver Estreich shared his view of the expensive Bellinis served at Cipriani on Instagram. Alongside an image of a broken glass on a Cipriani napkin, he commented: “This is what I think of your overpriced Bellinis #zerofucksgiven #cipriani #anotherdayanotherdollar”.

 

Sobering up

Drinks historian Jared Brown remarked on Facebook: “Sober bartenders are like skinny chefs”. He certainly has a point.

 

Named for the net

At Aubaine in South Kensington two American ladies sat chatting whilst their young children sat playing on iPads. The first commented: “I think it is great that Ambrose is getting with the tech gen”. The second answered: “Harry and I planned ahead. We gave Lysander the middle name ‘Instagram’. It’s set him up for life”.
