Sardine’s New Summer Prix Fixe Menu

Prix fixe menus are often underrated – but they should be given more time, because they’re a great way to see what a restaurant has to offer, often with a menu that changes weekly if not daily and at a rate that means you can go back and try the menu more than once and without having to wait until pay day. So, you’re in luck that Alex Jackson has just launched a new summer menu at Sardine, the Southern French restaurant in Shoreditch. The menu is going to change several times a week, but you can expect the likes […]

Dick Bradsell and whoever the drinker was, we thank you. London loves an espresso martini, so much so that next month London is getting its first espresso martini festival. Mr Black […]
