Salt + Pickle Opens in Crystal Palace

You know who was good at preserving things? The Ancient Egyptians – they had that sussed. They’ve not been around for the last few thousand years though…they’re also not opening a deli/bistro. Tell you who is though, Manish Upton-Mishra, the man behind Crystal Palace’s Good Taste Deli which specialises in the finest things in life (cheese, charcuterie, beer and wine) and Ian Haigh, the acclaimed designer (Central Design Studio). Everything will be salted, pickled or cured and it’s aptly named Salt + Pickle. Opening on Westow Hill in Crystal Palace, Salt + Pickle will specialise in preservation techniques, focusing on ingredients […]

Plot x The People’s Fridge Leftover Supperclub

Since opening in Tooting earlier this year, Plot has been getting serious buzz from locals and food critics alike for their small plates and snacks inspired by classic British cuisine. But how peckish would you be feeling if you were served a dish made exclusively from ingredients which were about to discarded? We all know there is a food waste problem in this country with far too much good food ending up in the bin, so Plot’s founders Mark Kimber and Harry Smith are doing something about it. The British restaurant is hosting a ‘waste dinner’ in partnership with The People’s Fridge, London’s first […]

A-Listers’ Favourite NYC Hotel Opens in Shoreditch

2017, it’s the year of the hotel. Our city is already marked out and defined by iconic hotels, but now the new kids on the block are arriving en masse. Already this year we’ve had the second London Four Seasons at Ten Trinity Square, Henrietta, The Ned and we’re awaiting the arrival of Nobu Shoreditch.  Stiff competition then for Michael Achenbaum, the New York hotelier, who this week will be opening The Curtain, his first European hotel. He doesn’t seem fazed though, he’s already got the backing of his celebrity fans, who all stay at Hotel Gansevoort, which he opened […]

Morning Gloryville’s Rooftop Party

If you tell us you’re a morning person we might not believe you, but if you tell us you’re the kind of person who goes to early morning raves then we just might. We think that the best way to wake up is to cover your morning in glitter and dancing – don’t you agree? The guys at Morning Gloryville certainly do and they’re about to bring the party to Brixton for the 4th year running. Previous birthdays have surprised guests with Fatboy Slim, Rudimental and Basement Jaxx Live so there is no doubt that this year will be as […]

Great British Restaurant Opens in St James’s

There was a time that British food was looked down on, we were the ridicule of the food scene with our pies and Toads in the Hole, we were known for overly tough meat, limp vegetables and not having much imagination. We all know this is no longer the case, British food has definitely gone through a renaissance and toady is the next step as GBR aka Great British Restaurant opens today. Created by Executive Head Chef Nigel Mendham, the menu starts with a breakfast. Dishes include the GBR full English; GBR baked beans with toasted rye and a fried […]

Eneko at One Aldwych’s Impressive Vegetarian Menu

What: An exclusive vegetarian set menu created personally by Eneko at One Aldwych. New? The vegetarian dishes were added earlier this month but have been officially launched for National Vegetarian Week which runs from the 15th to 21st May. Where? One Aldwych, Strand WC2B 4BZ www.eneko.london On the Menu: The food at Eneko at One Aldwych is innovative and exciting, especially for vegetarians; not a mushroom risotto or gnocchi dish in sight. Three Michelin-starred chef Eneko Atxa’s Basque roots can be seen across the menu with the likes of the traditional talo; a crispy corn talo topped with heritage tomatoes and basil emulsion. First […]

Skylight: East London’s New Rooftop Bar

We’re big fans of recycling and upcycling, especially when it involves turning old carparks into new rooftop bars. No need to build a new bar when you already have the space in the heart of East London – this isn’t just some idea that we’re suggesting, this is actually happening as Skylight opens next Thursday at Tobacco Dock. The theme for this up and coming bar will be centred on the idea of a quintessentially British garden party with an urban twist. Edgy. With space for 600 Londoners over three levels, this new hotspot is fitted with numerous bars, croquet […]

Sophisticated Spanish-Inspired Summer Terrace

Bringing the laid-back atmosphere of the Spanish Isles to London Docklands, Doubletree by Hilton London Docklands Riverside’s new Anna de Codorníu Terrace has slick deckchairs and opulent sofas coated in blankets to lounge on and parasols decorated in sophisticated shades of muted gold silver grey and white to shield from the scorching sun (we hope). Spanish-themed DJ sets and live music will play during lantern lit evenings whilst you lounge around with friends and loved-ones in the late night sunshine. Whilst you’re relaxing alongside the Thames, treat yourself to the full Spanish experience by ordering from the new La Cuina menu. Inspired bythe […]

A whole load of traditional afternoon teas across London have had makeovers to make them lighter, brighter and more summery. Many are going one step further and using The Chelsea Flower Show as inspiration so think floral-infused pastries and petals galore. Here is our pick of the best new afternoon teas… Bluebird Bluebird have collaborated with Maite Choux for their Bluebird in Bloom afternoon tea.
