Well, I'm sure, like me, anyone on Shad Thames
was waiting with baited breath to see what new restaurant would take the place of the Apprentice.
Anticipation mounted as the inside began to take shape, and the eaterie started to look like quite a respectable joint.
And then - oh - it's another bleedin' Pizza chain. Zizzi
. We already have two chains, Ask and Pizza Express
on the Shad, and now a third within fift y yards.
Methinks I will boycott by way of protest!
