The thing with London is that we’re very good at taking parts of other countries culture and cuisine the parts that we like and leaving the parts we aren’t too sure about. Take the US for example, we’re all on board the BBQ restaurants of Texas, we’ll celebrate Thanksgiving if it means we can have a practise run at Christmas but we’ll politely decline Hershey’s – it just isn’t Cadburys. With today being Independence Day London is celebrating in full force and one place opening just in time is Texas Joe. Doing away with the American clichés that are so […]
A happy birthday is in order as Christopher’s Covent Garden celebrates 25 years of business, and what birthday would be complete without some treats?

Classic Christopher’s dishes such as Caesar Salad will go from £9 to £6.50, Beef Carpaccio will go from £11 to £7 and USDA 8oz Fillet Steak is the biggest steal of all going from £40 to £15. The ‘Pay What You Paid’ menu […]

Food can be art and art can definitely be food (why else do we reach for our phones to capture beautifully presented plates?) so the announcement that Alex Jackson is choosing an art gallery annexe as the location for his first restaurant doesn’t seem that crazy.

Inspired by the simplicity and seasonality of farmhouse cooking in Provence and Languedoc, Alex will be using authentic imported ingredients alongside quality British meat and fish at Sardine, a restaurant […]

They’ll be embracing the Jamaican feel good spirit with live […]
