Taking the future Mrs Xenophon away for a couple of nights in a swanky hotel and we're going to the England v France game at Twickenham on Saturday.

Anyone have any restaurant recommendations in Richmond?

MacDonalds is always a good shout.

Burger King. It's a special occasion, after all. McD is a bit too mundane.

Aah yes. Thanks Rich.

McD's or BK? Hmmm... decisions, decisions...

Guys……Burgers! Do they not have a KFC? I mean if it's a special occasion. Come on, push the boat out. I suggest a 3 piece variety meal each.

Steady on Tony. Variety meals? I'm not made of money.

If you're going to propose... it's got to be Wimpy.

I am definitely not going to propose!! Not this year anyway.

Well now that is Wimpy mentioned, what are the chances of a decent serious suggestion of a restaurant? Probably not likely given you are all in such jovial moods this morning.

A rare occasion like this calls for the Big Guns: Bella Pasta.

well, if you really want style, then the Bingham on the river would suit, french/european , good bar, none of this silly pacific rim asian-scottish fusion haggis on pork dumpling with a sesame-mars bar sauce :eyes

failing that, there are a number of French style cafe-bars that do a passable cafe style meals, I wonder if Pizaro's in Kew is still there, now that's a very nice resturant.

Other than that there are loads of nice restaurants in Richmond

The hotel restaurant at the Richmond Gate hotel is quite nice.

Don Fernando's next to the station does really good tapas if that's your cup of tea, failing that McClements in Twickenham (about 5 mins down the road) is really good - but you'll probably have to book:

Be different. Take a trip up the Mortlake Road to the Naked Turtle. French bistro atmosphere, serious wine list, good food, live music and the waitresses turn into jazz singers later in the evening.
