Media Lunch: Trish Halpin, editor, Marie Claire
Thursday 16 September 2010
The venue: I discovered La Petit Maison this year. It's a French restaurant but with a bit of a difference. I like the ambience and it's bright and airy. It has a nice outside area too. Quite a few of the people I've taken there hadn't heard of it before.
The company: The last lunch I had there was with Liz Matthews, an entertainment publicist.
The conversation: Liz's clients include Alexa Chung, Daisy Lowe and Miquita Oliver so we talked about them. Marie Claire has just undergone a revamp, particularly in our shopping section, so we looked at opportunities for where her clients could work with us. We also spoke about our mutual love of Mulberry handbags too – it was very good fun.
On the menu: The seafood is good and there are also lots of fresh vegetables. The food's served as it's ready so there is no formal starter, main course, dessert situation.
Come here often? In the fashion magazine fraternity, breakfasts are popular and tend to be preferable to lunch because you can eat at nine in the morning and be in the office just after 10. I like The Wolseley for breakfast, which is very buzzy. I try and only do about two lunches a month.
