Ray Winstone's Waiter Kidnap
The restaurant used in the 2009 gangster hit '44 Inch Chest'
Location: 96 Draycott Avenue, SW3 3AD
Description: '44 Inch Chest' is a brit-flic from 2009 and starring the superb Ray Winstone, Ian McShane and John Hurt.
It was directed by the same chap behind the excellent 'Sexy Beast' Malcolm Venville and is another classic film in which Winstone shines again.
And so to this spot and restaurant 'Papillion' - this is where the team kidnapped the French waiter who was eloping with Winstone's wife.
The naughty geet!
