From mid-October the horned mammal that is the goat will be making its way from the rural green pastures to the steel and concrete city of London. Its final destination will be Goat House at Viet Grill in Shoreditch. There the ever-gnawing vertebrate will mix with salad, swim in curry and be on the receiving end of a Vietnamese steamboat. The popularity of goat is growing exponentially hence this pop-up response. Goat House is the first all-goat restaurant and will run for a month. The basement eatery will offer guests a feasting menu inspired from rural feasting traditions representing authentic […]
There is a ceaseless gratification ordering and eating takeaway. Firstly, you don’t have to cook; praise the Lord. Secondly; usually the food entailed is a refreshing departure from routine and traditional tea’s. And thirdly, the taste and fulfilment of the grub cannot be replicated, whether that be pizza, Chinese or, pertinently; Indian. So, we’ve established a takeaway is good, no, great, and you’re excited thinking about one now. With that in mind it’s time for you to take a breath and if possible a seat, because an Indian delivery service is opening this month. It’s called Motu, a name derived from […]
A champagne education. We know, it seems inconceivable. After a couple of bottles, taking in and retaining information under such undesirable conditions sounds awfully difficult. Regardless of its implausibility its happening. For those who don’t know a Chandon from a Jouët, Gaucho is giving you the chance to brush up on your champagne knowledge. Champagne commonly signifies a celebratory event and this week is going to be no different, well the celebratory part anyway, as Gaucho showcase the incredible range of champagne available at their restaurants. Insobriety will need to be controlled as this is 7 days dedicated to enlightenment, […]
New? It’s heading towards its first anniversary which some may say still makes it new whilst others might say in ‘London time’ makes it well established. Where? 9 Islington Green, Islington, N1 ZXH, www.bellanger.co.uk On the Menu: Inspired by the Alsatian brasseries of Paris’ past, the food is primarily French with German touches. We headed there for brunch and the menu is extensive so if, like me, you’re indecisive, check out the menu before you go to save the rest of the table from losing patience. Classic brunch dishes like Eggs Benedict and Eggs Florentine are joined by veal schnitzels, tartes flambées, […]
You know those interviews where they ask you what you can’t live without? If we ever find ourselves being asked such a question, we would have to say brunch. The best meal of any day. We’ve rounded up six brunches which have recently launched, note them down and get eating!
Salt Yard Group (Opera Tavern, Salt Yard, Ember Yard and Dehesa) is set to open their next restaurant at the end of the month and this time they are taking inspiration from the elegance of Venice and the grandeur of bygone eras. Opening in St James’s Market, the 110 cover restaurant will bring together classic bar-counter seating with more intimate tables and banquette booths. Sit outside on the terrace or climb the ornate stairs to the mezzanine level which can be hired for a private dinner party – whilst full details are still being kept under wraps, we’ve been told […]
New? Yes, it opened at the end of summer this year, it follows on from Dirty Bones in Kensington and Kingly Court. Where? They’ve taken their Mutts Nuts (that’s a cocktail FYI) over East and headed to Shoreditch 1 Club Row, Shoreditch, E1 6JX, www.dirty-bones.com On the Menu: The clue is in the name – it’s the sort of food that is everything clean eating is not. Mac ‘n’ cheese, pork, meat and chips in various formats. We’re talking burgers laden with pulled pork and mac ‘n’ cheese; chicken served with waffles; hot dogs topped with bacon and cheese sauce and the sort […]
Last year Andy Taylor and Tim Talbot served burgers to 10,000 guests in five weeks. This year they sold 600 Le Mac burgers on National Burger Day alone. Of course they could though, they’re Le Bun and they’re Le Back in Dalston. Following on from a summer pop-up with Kelis, the guys are setting up shop at Birthdays in Dalston for a residency that will run until 29th January next year. New dishes include mind-blowingly Nashville-style hot chicken hots made with cayenne pepper-seasoned fried chicken. Apparently they were first created in a revenge by a wife who found out her […]
Ah, the mini-bar. That wonderful but slightly scary place in your hotel room that you look at but don’t dare touch for fear of an unexplainable and slightly extortionate amount being added to your bill, revealed only on departure. Not the best end to a holiday. If locating that mini fridge and discovering boring mini bottles of wine has you wanting to just call room service for a decent drink then it’s time to upgrade: say goodbye to the mini-bar as you know it. The London EDITION is revamping the in-room drinks experience as you know it, because when there […]
