An injection of old school glamour is never something to shy away from, especially when it’s at 45 Jermyn St.; a St. James staple that oozes allure. Just off the main drag, you’ll swirl in past the doorman and position yourself on plush tangerine-coloured chairs and booths which are charmingly trapped between herb green wood and a sociable, marble-topped bar. There’s a real sense of nostalgia inside the space; small lamps sit proudly upon each table – making for marvellous light when snapping pics of the food, eek. The restaurant is sophisticated and stylish without being overbearingly pretentious and la di […]

I’m not sure how posh you have to be to answer the question ‘how do you like your eggs in the morning?’ with ‘Faberge’d’, but you’d probably be the sort of person who stays at The Ritz. Oh, unrelated, did you know that The Ritz have just launched a three-course Fabergè Easter lunch menu? The lunch has been created by The Ritz’s Exec Chef, John Williams, inspired by Peter Carl Fabergé’s iconic Mosaic Egg from 1914. The real thing’s in the British Royal Collection, the Queen probably eats it with actual soldiers. But William’s dish itself mirrors the multi-coloured Fabergé Treillage egg pendant, and this […]
‘Tis the season! It seems to come earlier each year, you’re walking through the supermarket and suddenly you hear those familiar jingles over the tannoy. Walk down the street and peer through the windows as families gather for the annual delight of decorating the asparagus tree; the shops are chock-a-block with asparagus themed gifts and trinkets and every TV show seems to be an asparagus season special. You put the telly on at 3pm and there’s Queen: ‘My husband and I, have funny smelling piss’. Yes, merry asparagus season each and every one of you. Here’s where to celebrate asparagus […]
A trip to Spiritland was like watching a movie of the making of The Beatles. Lennon, McCartney, Ringo and Starr are seated at a table in their early days bearing mop tops and notepads eagerly scribbling down lyrics to what would later become Ain’t She Sweet! The restaurant, which resides in the 180-seater space that was previously Canteen at the Royal Festival Hall is essentially a dining experience inside a recording studio; another concept from the quirky heads behind Spiritland in King’s Cross, with its studio and café, and its Headphone Bar in Mayfair. The latest venture opened in February and […]
You may have noticed that the spring blossom in London is out in full force, decorating our streets with wow-worthy shades of pink, purple and white which, granted, may not be up there with Japan’s offering but it’s pretty all the same. Generally speaking, the spring blossom begins...
If you’re a parent of small children, you know the drill. You’ve spent the best part of five months staggering through darkness, cabin fever tantrums and bouts of norovirus. And then the first remotely spring-like day occurs (over 10 degrees; not pouring with rain) and you begin to slowly emerge from your unsolicited hibernation and the kids start going bonkers with excitement because they can’t believe there is life beyond the telly and baking cupcakes and ooh isn’t the magnolia lovely and yes I suppose we can get an ice cream (it’s nearly 12 degrees after all) and that’s when […]
It’s the talk of the town, or the city if you will. The big opening. The one-to-watch. The restaurant from the man who loves an expletive and claims his least favourite sandwich is an idiot one. Yes, Gordon Ramsay’s got a new restaurant opening named Lucky Cat in June but we, as the greedy foodies that we are, got to sample some of the offerings ahead of time. Lucky Cat will be an “authentic Asian eating house” and will replace Maze, the Ramsay restaurant that currently resides in Lucky Cat’s location. Ramsay lived up to all chef stereotypes upon meeting him, […]
Easter, a time to reflect and celebrate on the death and resurrection of Jesus and the saviour of mankind. Which translates as a time to stuff your face with chocolate until you have to be sick in your granny’s downstairs loo. But if you’re going to go in for all the chocolate face stuffing thing, then there’s only one place we want to go, and that’s Maxwell’s in Covent Garden. The American style diner (they take face stuffing to a whole nother level in America) has created an easter feast that’s going to be so filling that you’ll want to […]
