Tesco slides in London after weak earnings
The basement is more like a nightclub, a bit Frankie Goes to Bollywood. The wine list is original and eclectic. If you are on a budget, the 2011 Le Prieure, Chateau Ksara, Bekaa Valley (Lebanon) works with the spicier dishes. If you are looking for a treat, a carafe of 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin, Henri de Villamont costs 45 pounds. And if you are making a night of it, there are inventive cocktails, such as the quinine sour.

Travel would be a nightmare! Its bad enough to screw up teams by sending them over there as it is.

And The Downsides If Hill and other West London startups have the classic advantages of the gentrification pioneer big, character filled spaces in which to create he also faces some of the same challenges. The biggest one? Imminent interest in the transforming neighborhood that will shift the real estate market once again. FIGs warehouse home is slated for demolition in the next few years to make way for an expansion of the shopping center that also serves as its landlord, so the incubator is already making plans for a move. Were already looking for where might the next big warehouse project is that we can take over and bring in even more exciting businesses, Hill says.
