Went to see the movie ' We have a Pope' this evening, an Italian film about a newly elected Pope who then suffers a panic attack and goes into hiding in Rome while the Vatican use one of the Swiss guards to stay in the Pope's apartment to pretend that everything's OK. Meanwhile the putative Pope sees a psychoanalyst in anonymity to reveal his sexual problems. Reasonably amusing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/We_Have_a_Pope_(film)
Afterwards went to the newly opened Deli West One in Blandford Street, a kosher deli located between Baker Street and Oxford Street. A small deli whose trade I guess depends largely on the takeaway lunchime trade. This is now the second kosher restaurant in London's West End, most, if not all, of London's kosher eateries being situated in the north western suburbs with Israeli shwarma/grill style menus, if you like that.
Deli West One is open after Shabbat in winter from 8.15 pm to midnight and on Sundays until 10pm. We had a passable chicken soup and then a salt beef sandwich with English mustard ( the one that blows your head off if you use too much ). Although the filling was generous I thought the beef rather dry . Straight up and down stuff, nothing special but a new kosher eaterie open on winter Saturday evenings. The front door remained open throughout. Although it was a still and dry December evening it was still chilly enough by 9pm so that I kept my coat on while eating. Don't know why they couldn't close the door.
