Hendersons all there

What a splendid dinner to mark former YRM supremo Brian Henderson's 70th birthday, held at the St John restaurant in Smithfield (which happens to be run by son Fergus). A packed room delighted in magnificent shellfish, rabbit, pear sorbet (with poire, naturally) and fine wines. It was nice to see Terence Conran in attendance, no doubt relieved to get a good dinner somewhere. I notice Mr and Mrs John Miller, Mr and Mrs Deyan Sudjic, Mr Robert Turner (formerly of SOM now based in Paris), Ms Monica Pidgeon, Mr and Mrs Julian Wyckham and Mr and Mrs Stephen Bayley among a huge number of others. Speeches were minimal, dancing to Nat Temple's timeless band in the bar jolly diverting. There seemed to be more women than men present, but perhaps that was Astragal's inebriated wishful thinking.
