Conran & Partners celebrated its launch last Wednesday with a splendid do at the Museum of London. Terence Conran said a few words, after which guests were able to enjoy the museum’s current exhibition, London Eats Out. The show, which celebrates 500 years of eating out in the capital, was designed by C&P, and features the events, foods and people to have made an impact. No surprise, then, to see Conran himself appearing as an exhibit. Below his picture are the words: ‘In the last 30 years as a restaurateur, Terence Conran has had a huge influence on the way Londoners think about eating out.’ I wonder who came up with those bons mots.
