What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where can I get some?
There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Bosi Bags Bibendum

Claude Bosi to take over Fulham Road restaurant Bibendum after a refurbishment in early 2017

 

Bibendum in Fulham Road, SW3 was “named after Michelin’s portly mascot Monsieur Bibendum who, in turn, takes his name from the latin phrase Nunc est Bibendum (Now is the time to drink)”, according to the restaurant’s website. Now, though, after thirty years in business, the party’s over and the restaurant is to be replaced by something named Claude Bosi at Bibendum.

 

The venture, which sees the defunct Hibiscus chef Claude Bosi as an equal shareholder with Sir Terence Conran and Michael Hamlyn, will feature a seven-day-a-week-seafood restaurant, a cocktail bar and a high-end dining room on the first floor that will open from Wednesday to Sunday.

 

Of the forthcoming restaurant, Claude Bosi commented:

 

“This is an extremely exciting adventure for me. After twenty years of living and working in the UK, I’m looking forward to cooking my style of food in such an iconic building and putting my name above the door”.

 

Bibendum will close in January 2017 and Claude Bosi at Bibendum will open in spring 2017.

  1. This is rather exciting. Bibendum has seemed tired to say the least on the last few occasions I’ve dined there. I do hope it retains a little of it’s old school charms though.
