On not choosing the diplomatic route
We talked about Divo earlier, the reviews of which will probably go down in history as the worst ever. However, now the time has come for another painful review by the otherwise forgiving Matthew Norman:
There are two ways to handle a rogue restaurant such as this first British branch of a venerable, showbizzy New York steakhouse chain. You can take the diplomatic route, coaxing it towards the civilised world by ignoring the violations and praising the positives, but since there are none of the latter, let the napalming commence.
The art of war is entertaining but ruthless.
