Okay, so you may have guessed we Radicals do not get too excited by the usual Hallmark Holiday mush that is Valentine’s Day, but the Revolt is willing to make an exception when the event is marked by an ‘Allo ‘Allo themed night at Ruby and Norm, Lee High Road. Fresh from a refurbishment and with Angie Ma back in the kitchen what could go wrong – well hopefully an evening will not follow the usual chaotic plot of the classic tv show. Points for working out the Officer Crabtree joke in the title!
Ruby & Norm report that “Our amazing pop up chef Angie will be serving up the ultimate date night French feast….mini wild mushroom and asparagus pastries, french onion soup, beef bourguignon and celeriac puree with chocolate and salted caramel moelleux with vanilla ice cream and salted caramel popcorn for pudding – full vegan and vegetarian options available.” And fear not if you just fancy a bit of a laugh as sharing tables for non-couples are available.
One word of warning, ‘Allo ‘Allo plots often involved Herr Flick and von Smallhausen dressing as women in their hunt for the Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies. Although it always fooled the German guards, if you see two odd looking ladies with canes and limps, steer clear. Oh, and if you are caught snogging the waitress in the kitchen, the line ‘You stupid woman!’ followed by a reasonable explanation as to why the lady was in your grasp should suffice.
£40 per ticket for 4 courses, glass of bubbles + cabaret – The Radicals recall Lt Gruber and General von Klinkerhoffen resorted to cheese to block out the delightful Madame Edith’s singing but it should not be necessary for the R&N cabaret!
Previous evenings have been a success and a light-hearted take on Valentine’s Day should be equally popular.
