The venue: Truc Vert, a little French place around the corner from the Psychologies office. It looks like a little slice of Paris in Mayfair. It's not terribly well known, so I don't think everyone's bored with it yet.
The company: Just this week I took a newspaper columnist there.
The conversation: We discussed the current Psychologies campaign called "Be Life Curious". We've had an ad campaign in print and on the Tube, which fitted in well with our October issue which had Julia Roberts on the cover and talking about Eat Pray Love. The film's idea of reaching outside your normal life wrapped in brilliantly with the campaign.
On the menu: I had a delicious warm chicken salad and my guest had sardines. We had sparkling elderflower juice to drink, as it was early in the week. Had it been a Friday I would have allowed myself a glass of sauvignon blanc.
Come here often? I go there for work a lot; the staff are charming and it's quick. I don't go for lunches nearly as much as I have done in other jobs I've done. We're really about what we produce rather than the smoke and mirrors of a lot of magazine journalism.
