I didn’t do much this weekend, except for a few chores, writing, resting and watching Netflix. Oh, and I started listening to a new book on Audible, Life After Life by Kate Atkinson.
On Friday I ran from one job to another and I hardly managed to squeeze a coffee&cake break between bookings. My lunch consisted in Tesco sandwiches, for Lord’s sake.
In the evening we took Mayfair, had drinks in a small Italian place and then, hungry as could be, we started wandering around looking for something to our liking. And there it was, a Mexican Polish place called L’Autre. Intrigued, we stepped in, got us a table and asked for the menu. I ordered chicken enchiladas and boyfriend ordered kielbasa.
While waiting, we asked for the story behind this rather unusual combo and apparently, at first it was a French bistro, hence the name, but it didn’t go that well so they changed the cuisine into Mexican while keeping the French name. Later on, they hired a Polish and decided to go on with both cuisines. Brilliant idea, if you ask me.
Please do stop at L’Autre if in Mayfair. Lots of character and good food from two continents, all very well cooked. What a gem, isn’t it?
