Letter: First with family dining

AN OMISSION in your article 'High-chairs and holidays' (Review, 6 March) has left me bewildered and angry. Your sub-headline goes on to read '100 top entries in an Egon Ronay guide to places where children are welcome'. How then do you come to ignore Smollensky's restaurants, originators of and undisputed market leaders of family dining?

When you consider that in 1992 both the Smollensky's restaurants were Egon Ronay's runners-up in the Family Restaurant of the Year category, and then joint winners in 1993, your omission seems careless.
