I liked this place in the 80's and 90's, when every wall was covered in mirrors and not the 'burlesque house' wallpaper that you can find in just about any low grade establishment in the North of England. Yes, please bring back the olde Odettes charm to the restaurant and I will be happy! It always is a shame when these characterful places are turned into something else, trying to be 'modern' etc. Also, I would suggest a proper selection for vegetarians. I seldom ate there, yet felt that the mirrored, very French ambiance added a certain character to the street that is no longer there. That was back in the good days, before most can remember, the early 90's , when Lemonia was a working mans pub, the pet grooming shop was a butchers, when Shepherd's was an abandoned citroen dealership, the silly coffee shop was a launderette and when there were around 4 bog standard corner shops along the road rather than the picture postcard village shops that seem to have taken over. Oh, yes, and when Bibendum's still had soul, a veritable wine warehouse, rather than a stuffy starkly lit corporate hell hole! And when the silly little 'tea cosy' was in fact a greengrocers called Kirby's and when Yeomans was a proper greengrocer rather than a juice bar.
Yes those were the good days for Primrose Hill. I do not like Odettes any more. Thank you
