If you’re not already following us on Twitter, here’s a handy round up of the week’s main news stories.

• King’s Cross’s Fellow to have a Rotherhithe sibling. The Compass to open “in quiet spot by Thames” on 22 April

• New Kemp Town outpost for Brighton’s excellent Gingerman empire – The Ginger Dog opens 26 April at 12 College Place

• Gordon Ramsay leaves PR company Sauce Communciations (in which he has a shareholding) for more brand/celeb-led agency Freud

• Savoy opening slips – again – to August/September reports Times, as cost balloons to an incredible £1.6m/room

• Soho restaurant Bob Bob Ricard continues to make a song and dance about wine value. Perhaps fair enough when their Yquem 2002, for example, costs LESS THAN ONE THIRD of the Ducasse price!

• As trade reports suggest out-of-London hotel rates continue to slide… seems a good time to consider some domestic tourism

• Groupon – new US web-phenomenon – encourages Londoners to sign up on widely-advertised basis that its daily deals are already available. They aren’t.

And in the media...

• Why restaurant critics are not so different from rats, by New York Times critic Sam Sifton

• An interesting guide to the pub guides (Guardian) A (rare) example of intelligent commentary on guide books pros/cons

• The best bargain menus from rising Parisian chefs (New York Times)
