The Indefatigable Elena

When I was living in London, back in the 1970s and early 80s, I was fortunate enough to be able to dine at L’Escargot in Soho a couple of times. The restaurant was ruled over by Elena Savloni, the tiny, but formidable, maître d’. Well, I say formidable, but she was also charming, and put me completely at my ease.

Incredibly, she’s still going strong at 90 years of age. She’s a Soho institution.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
