Nobu vs Zuma: Which one has the best style and taste? Japanese Cuisine wars in London

As a working gal, one of my favourite things to do is to dine outside preferably at places which combine taste with style.  Maybe, at this point I should confess that paying for good food is easier than cooking it at home for me.  And we are not all born to be Heston Blumenthals or […]
