6 Of The Best Healthy Restaurants

While we are normally perfectly content gorging on ice creams and burgers, in order to get those #summerbods it’s important to eat healthy. Also, it just feels good to leave a restaurant knowing you haven’t eaten triple your daily calorie allowance. The Handbook has got you covered with a guide to 6 Of The Best Healthy Restaurants in London – check it out below!

Alcoholic Architecture

The thing about technology is that it’s made us all pretty lazy people. Emojis have replaced actual sentences and Snapchat just updated their app so that you only have to tap the screen to view snaps, rather than hold down your finger. Now it would seem that even lifting a drink is too much effort for us, and to be honest, we’re not really complaining. This summer, the creative (read: insane) people behind Bompas & Parr are opening a bar that’s filled with alcohol vapour and swaying patrons.

Corrigan’s Mayfair – What We Thought

The Handbook recently reviewed Richard Corrigan’s restaurant Bentley’s and as we are all about being inclusive, we decided it was only right that we also reviewed its sister venue, Corrigan’s…nothing to do with the promise of more food, we swear. Corrigan’s is an upmarket venue in Mayfair and I was excited to return to the venue after not having eaten there for a while. It is safe to say that I was not disappointed and left feeling impressed and oh so full. Richard Corrigan is a renowned and multi-award winning chef who has been cooking since he was a youngster.

Storeys Rooftop Pop Up

If you haven’t noticed from some of our previous blogs and guides, The Handbook loves rooftop parties and hangouts.

Storeys will be located on top of the iconic former BBC Car Park at Television Centre in White City. A summer terrace hotspot, Storeys will be a cultural hub, featuring striking artwork, tasty […]

Brew Review – What We Thought

It’s always best to address the elephant in the room from the very start. Brew. The name that conjures up images of coffee, cake and dare I say, cyclists.   Upon arrival I glanced at the menu with caution. Was I going to find a Lance Armstrong apple sauce?Or a Eddy Merckx mezze? I hoped not. After a thorough inspection of the choices my heart beat returned to its normal pace. The menu was clean – phew. I decided to go with pizza, but surely you can’t go wrong with pizza?  The Hellfire Pizza, which is what I ordered, involves a […]
