I recently attended a bloggers launch for the newly opened contemporary Indian restaurant 1580, where I had the opportunity to taste some of the items off the menu. On arrival I found the atmosphere very welcoming and I headed to the bar for a drink of lemonade. I then chatted to some fellow bloggers before the owner said a few words. It was lovely to hear about how 1580 came together and throughout the evening the owner came and spoke to each table to introduce himself and check we were getting on alright. It really showed that he has a real interest in running a great restaurant.
