9.15- table booked at Gaucho.
9.30- missed the first taxi, only 15 minutes late- it's a personal best.
Gaucho must be one of the most decadent argentinian steak houses around, rarely a spare table in sight, striking black & white decor- complete with black marble floor, cow print hair chairs, huge mirrors, chandeliers and subtle lighting.
The desert- meringue with almond and orange caramel, redcurrants & incredible malbec sorbet/icecream, sprinkled with cinnamon (my boyfriends- although I admit to stealing his spoon for a taste!)
(wearing- new Topshop leopard collar dress, Kurt Geiger Fashionista wedges, snakeskin clutch- ancient family treasure)
(Gaucho- st.Marys street, Manchester- near Kendals)
