Link roundup

1. Heston Blumenthal has a new restaurant opening in London. Its menu is inspired by historic British dishes and will include Bergamot Cured Mackerel Salad, Slow Cooked Short Rib of Beef, and Scallops with Cucumber Ketchup and Peas. Via.

2. Avoid the Scott Pilgrim video game:

Scott Pilgrim is a buggy mess. Screen tearing; game freezes; character freezes; unresponsive menus; music drop-outs -- you name it; it's all in there. It really feels like the game was rushed out to match the release week of the movie.
3. I mentioned John Reed's new book Tales of Woe earlier this week. He posted a playlist to accompany the book over at Largehearted Boy.

*Buy Heston Blumenthal's cookbook (illustrated by Dave McKean) at Amazon.
