Dinner: Three men dining at Le Gavroche in London on Monday ended with a bill of pounds 13,091. "It was the best single bill I've seen from a small table in the 26 years I've been working here," said the manager Silvano Giraldin. The food came to around pounds 220, but the wine bill - which included a bottle of 1985 Romanee Conti for pounds 4,950, which they donated to the staff because they though it "a bit young"- added pounds 12,870. The diners were celebrating a birthday.
Nuts: According to an Iranian official, the EU has decided to lift a temporary ban on the import of Iranian pistachio nuts from next month. Pistachios are Iran's largest non-oil export after carpets.Reuse content
