POPULAR Channel 4 show First Dates has been helping singletons find love for many years now. But is the London restaurant that features in the show real? Here is the lowdown… First Dates dating guru Fred Sirieix Ia the First Dates restaurant real? You’ll be pleased to know that the venue is very real and, yes, you can dine there. The show is filmed at the very swanky Paternoster Chop House in central London, next to St Paul’s Cathedral at 1 Warwick Court, Paternoster Square. Starters are between £6 and £11, while mains are about £17 to £35. When the restaurant isn’t shut for filming you can book in to recreate your own awkward First Date if you wish. Fred with waiters and waitresses CiCi, Sam, Laura, Austin and Merlin Will Fred Sirieix be at the restaurant? Unfortunately, you’ll only find Fred there when they’re filming – but it’s not all bad. You can hunt him down in Mayfair where he’s the general manager of the extremely plush Galvin at Windows, a Michelin-starred restaurant on the 28th floor of the London Hilton on Park Lane. The 44-year-old father-of-two has become the nation’s Gallic answer to Cilla Black with his advice on love, lust and broken hearts. Are the staff in the First Dates restaurant real? Most of them are but if you want to meet the whole gang you will need to actually go on First Dates. Blonde waitress CiCi Coleman is an actress who was trained in New York. Barman Merlin Griffiths is a mixologist and landlord of a pub and bar, and Sam Conrad is a waiter. Waitress Laura Tott is in the Royal Navy and Austin Ventour is a model/actor and dancer. Scarlett Moffatt appeared on the celebrity version of the show Is the restaurant expensive? Paternoster Chop House would be deemed as a restaurant fans can visit every now and then – depending on how much money they’re willing to spend for a meal. A Chop House burger, which consists of a brioche bun, cheese, bacon, pickle and onion rings will set you back a whopping £18. And that would be one of the cheapest meals you can order off the restaurant’s menu. Starters range from pea and smoked ham soup (£7) to Hand-raised pork pie (£11) while a more fancier option would be the Colchester crab with a price tag of £14. Vegan and vegetarians can scoop up a Grilled Calcot for £18 or settle for Herb dumplings filled with fresh cheese, violet artichokes and peas for £20. If all of that sounds a little too much, you could even make a quick stop for some dessert, with a starting range from £7 for the likes of a sticky toffee pudding and carrot cake, among other treats. [article-rail-topic title=”more first dates gossip” term_id=”3724″ posts_number=”12″ /] What’s on the menu? Paternoster Chop House offers a delicious menu that is sure to appeal to a wide market of fans and local customers. The restaurant offers cooked over charcoal beef “from rare breeds that require a much longer time to mature; it is this slow growing nature that gives the meat its flavour.” If that isn’t impressive enough, Paternoster Chop House also provides customers with the chance to try their 5-course lamb tasting menu, which is sure to be just as tasty. Starters and snacks make up for a good part of the menu while salads and sauces finish the impressive list offered by the eatery.

HATED mob boss Liam Byrne’s son Lee has walked away with an undisclosed sum after he and a group of pals sued a restaurant for defamation. Lee Byrne and his gangster mate Lee Gibson, a Kinahan foot soldier, along with young pals Corrie Colgan, Jordan Dunphy and Ashford Coughlan had sued Cosmo restaurant in Liffey Valley, Dublin, for €375,000 damages at the Circuit Civil Court. Liam Byrne, left, and Lee Byrne who has no convictions Lee Byrne at the Four Courts in Dublin Kinahan goon Lee Gibson outside the Four Courts for the civil action After paying more than €200 for their meals and leaving staff at Cosmo a tip, they had been called back and accused of not paying. Gibson, from Drimnagh; Colgan, 30, from Rialto; Mr Dunphy, from Mourne Road, Drimnagh; Mr Coughlan, 22, from Hanover Quay and Lee Byrne, 19, from Crumlin, claimed after they left the restaurant the manager said: “Lads, lads, come back, you didn’t pay.” Each of them alleged they had felt compelled to return to the restaurant with the manager and had to stand at the door until it had been sorted out while other diners entered and left the restaurant. Barrister Jennifer Goode, who appeared with Deborah Crowley of Ferrys Solicitors for the five friends, told Circuit Court President Mr Justice Raymond Groarke the case had been settled and counsel for the restaurant would read a statement of apology to them in court. Hugh B. Byrne, counsel for Great Dublin Capital Limited, The Black Church, St Mary’s Place, Dublin 7, which trades as The Cosmo Restaurant, stated that on February 8, 2017, as a result of an error on the part of the staff, it had been thought they had left without paying their bill. ‘PAID THEIR BILL IN FULL’ Mr Byrne said: “In fact they had paid their bill in full and had also left a tip for the staff.” Mr Byrne said: “The defendant sincerely apologises for the mistake.” Ms Goode told the court that all five cases could be struck out on foot of the settlement with no further order. The five friends had stated in their claims that they had attended the restaurant for a buffet meal and after leaving and waiting by the elevator to go down from the first floor to ground level they had been approached by a waitress in uniform and told “You did not pay for the food.” They had told her they had and later in the car park they had heard the restaurant manager shouting in their direction “lads, lads come back you didn’t pay.” All of them had felt compelled to return to the restaurant and “sort it all out”. They had felt they had been accused of having committed a criminal offence. [article-rail-section title=”Most read in news” posts_category=”2″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] The five claims had been progressed on their behalf by Ms Crowley a solicitor with Ferrys Solicitors. Gibson — who was accused by the Criminal Assets Bureau of being one of 20 key associates of gangster Byrne — also claimed the restaurant was guilty of “assault, battery, trespass to the person and or false imprisonment”. CAB identified the goon’s link to Liam Byrne when they targeted assets linked to the gang, including homes, vehicles, watches, rings and bank accounts.
