You may or may not know but this year is the dual year between Mexico and England, and whilst our governments might be working together more closely what we’re most excited for is what this means for Mexican food in London. Just as well then that this week sees the opening of Molé a boutique Mexican restaurant and bar in Marylebone from the team behind pan-Asian restaurant Cocochan. They’re going to be serving up South American classics but this is 2015 which means they aren’t any old tacos oh no, they’re giving the comfort food a twist and making 80% […]
Remember when we told you about InterContinental Park Lane’s Scents of Summer afternoon tea? Where they joined with Floris to create a floral tea that captured the essence of an English summer garden? Bringing together cakes and Floris’ key summer notes? Quite considerate really given that the chances are of smelling fresh air and flowers in London during the summer is close to none. Well we decided that we’d go down and check it out for you -who’s being considerate now? The tea is served in the Wellington Lounge which has the same refinement and sophistication as a good English […]

Ever loved gin so much you wished there was more than the regular drinking way to get it in your body? Well over at the Shangri-La Hotel they have decided to devote a whole garden retreat to it where you can enjoy sharing pitchers and punches of gin-and-tea-infused delights alongside gin-infused cakes and ice lollies.

You have big plans for Saturday, you’re going to make that Pilates class, then you’re going to meet your friends for brunch, maybe do some errands and basically feel like you’ve accomplished at least a weekend’s worth of work all by 12pm. But then Friday night rolls round and so do the drinks and the ‘heck I don’t even really like Pilates’ attitude kicks in and you end up surfacing from your bed at 3pm the next day and actually admitting you do like Pilates… sounds familiar? It certainly does to us. Well there is a saviour in the form […]
We all know the quote about when a man is tired of London he is tired of life and yes Samuel Johnson probably was on to something, but also maybe he was just tired of the teeming hordes, the less than fresh air and the all too familiar sound of ‘We’re just being held at a red light and will be moving shortly’. So the other day I jumped on the ‘it’ll be so good to get out of London’ bandwagon and headed off to the Crowne Plaza in Gerrards Cross. Yes it’s outside of London, but it’s actually only […]

Did you know rök means smoke in Swedish? So you can guess what sort of restaurant Rök will be when it opens in Shoreditch next month… a Nordic smokehouse based on the drinking and dining cultures of Northern Europe, obviously. It’s situated in an old café on Curtain Road that’s been converted into a 40 seat restaurant and it’s all about brining, pickling, smoking and curing the best British meats, which the award-winning charcutiers Cobble Lane Cured will be doing over in their smokehouse in Islington. They’ve even got meats which are specially prepared specifically for the restaurant. Dishes will […]
