Pizza Express is where we always go

Tuesday was Howard's 16th birthday and so we went out for a family meal in the evening. As usual the only question was which branch of Pizza Express we should go to; Kingston or Richmond. Howard chose Richmond because it is more posh!

Pizza Express is also our restaurant of choice if we are out in London, at the theatre or something. We have been to the branches at Waterloo, Charing Cross, Covent Garden, Soho and several others.

Eating in Pizza Express has been a ritual for some years now. Rick always does the ordering as the only decision is which pizzas Julia and I will have (which does not take very long and we normally decide on the way there) and whether we should have a half or a full bottle of Pinot Grigio.

There has been a slight change in the order over the years as the boys have got bigger and have gone from sharing a pizza between then, then having one each, then sharing a portion of doughballs for starters and now having a portion of doughballs each.

We keep going back to Pizza Express because the food is always good and the restaurants have a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. And as long as it stays that way we will keep going there.
