Food blogging for Zagat

I’ve been filling in for friends at the Zagat London food blog these last weeks, which means the opportunity to research some interesting restaurant and bar openings, and get paid for it, rather than just fall into the usual suspects (and get carried out).

In the process I managed to swing a visit to the opening night of fancy-pants contemporary Japanese restaurant Wabi in Holborn, and last night we even managed a visit to the hallowed members-only clubrooms of Electric House on Portobello Road in order to road-test the new Electric Diner’s Chicago-inspired meat, eggs and booze-heavy menu.

More to see over at the Zagat blog. There are, on reflection, worse ways to make a living.
