FOLD Opens on Brick Lane

After living in South East Asia, Rachel Filer returned to London and started FOLD catering with Head Chef Frederique Nguyen. That was in 2014, fast forward to now and they are about to open their first restaurant on Brick Lane. Also called FOLD, the new contemporary Vietnamese restaurant will specialise in foldable food and rice paper dishes. It’ll bring the ‘rice paper fold’ to London’s food scene, if it sounds familiar then that’s because they’re also known as summer rolls or if you’re over in America then crystal rolls. The rice paper will be available steamed, grilled, soft or fried […]

Christmas Parties at Ivory Vaults

We can almost hear the jingle bells softly ringing in the distance as the sound of the Christmas season approaches and with it we can expect plenty of minces pies, Santa’s smiling face and of course, Christmas parties. The parties will all no doubt featuring heavily on alcohol and some on food but what they won’t have is acrobats hanging from the ceiling, unless you booked at Ivory Vaults that is. The 10,000 sq ft historic venue is proud of their interactive shows offering a different experience from the norm where guests get to participate by dressing up, singing and […]

Narnia at The Churchill Bar

At this time of year there is no shortage of festive warming drinks – there’s pretty much a pumpkin spiced latte or spiced hot chocolate on every corner. We really aren’t arguing with this, in fact it’s one of the best things about this time of year. What would be even better is if a venue had the genius idea of overhauling their drinks menu to offer not one but seven festive tipples. The Churchill Bar have themed their winter terrace around the magical world of Narnia and have introduced festive cocktails. Enter through wardrobe doors and snuggle under a […]

Soho’s Irish Pop-Up

Next Thursday will see the opening  of The Soho Shebeen, the  six day, Irish pop-up on Greek Street that will celebrate the launch of three new Irish spirits.  First of all if you don’t know what a shebeen is then let us tell you, it’s a bar or club where alcohol was sold without a license (although we’re pretty sure this pop-up has a license, not wanting to be shut down and all that.) The ground floor will be home to the Feeney’s experience, which will celebrate Feeney’s Irish Cream liqueur, said to be the world’s most luxurious Irish cream […]

Diwali at Benares

Autumn is a time of festivity. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Harvest festival and the Hindu festival of light, Diwali.

Bernardi’s Review – What We Thought

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Bernardi’s has been opened for a while, it’s got that relaxed, easy going feel of a restaurant that knows what it’s doing and knows how to do it well. It was also, for a Wednesday night, surprisingly busy even for London. Situated on the corner of Seymour Street and Seymour Place, the modern Italian restaurant is run by brothers Gabriel and Marcello Bernardi and their team – we tried to count how many waitresses and waiters there were, we didn’t manage it, but there were a lot. They’ve gone for an elegant but casual […]

St Moritz Ski Bar at The Goring

It may sound familiar as the Kate Middleton’s chosen hotel for bridal party preparations and now The Goring is somewhere you can visit too – for less than the £8,400 Royal Suite price tag. From the 9th November the popular terrace at the hotel will be transformed into a magical and glamorous alpine bar, in ode to ski resort St Moritz. For a hotel who has just won a Michelin star and, of course, has royal approval it’s no surprise that this old-school ski bar has been created with immaculate attention-to-detail. Closely-guarded family cocktail recipes from award-winning barmen have been […]

Halva Bakery Review – What We Thought

As much as we love our raw juices and porridge for breakfast, when the weather is cold, it’s Friday and you have a day off from the office, we yearn for something a little more indulgent. And finding myself in just this situation I dropped into the Halva Bakery on Fulham Road for breakfast. We told you about it back in May when it first opened, but here’s a recap, owned by the professionally trained baker Lila Sarhang Zadeh, Halva means ‘something sweet’ because alongside their fresh breads and croissants they serve up tarts, cakes, pastries and macarons.      […]
