5. The London Restaurant with “Press for Champagne Buttons” at Every Table
Likened by one food critic to “dining inside a Fabergé egg”, Russian-owned Bob Bob Ricard is a Soho restaurant choice for when you want to make a statement. Pink waistcoat-clad staff have a knack of appearing just before you realise you need them – though there’s always the PRESS FOR CHAMPAGNE button if you need anything extra. Best saved for special occasions (a three-course meal for two, with wine and service, costs upwards of £150).

“Long before Batgirl became a part of DC Comic’s masculine universe, Batwoman aka Kathy Kane was a reoccurring character who romanced Batman and battled villainy by his side. Batwoman never appeared on the 1960s television show but the creators of the THE BATWOMAN film were undoubtedly inspired by her intriguing backstory as well as Yvonne Craig’s Batgirl when they created their own female caped crusader.”
If you appreciate the campy, stylish and highly entertaining Batman TV series with Adam West you should appreciate The Batwoman aka La Mujer Murcielago. More found on Movie Morlocks.
