Salmontini Le Resto Review

Salmontini le Resto recently opened in London, making it the first European venue from the Salmontini brand. Situated in Belgravia, the focus on the food is salmon with a selection of cold and hot salmon specialties including an extensive array of sushi and sashimi. The restaurant itself has a great décor and blends in well with the affluent neighbourhood; guests are invited to sit at the bar before being seated in the adjacent restaurant. After we were seated at our table, tell-tale signs of the newness of the restaurant appeared as a host of different waiters that came over in […]

The National Theatre

As of this week, pre and post theatre dining is getting a whole lot more exciting with three new restaurants and a bar at the National Theatre. Centrepiece is House with its all-day brasserie menu featuring suppliers handpicked by executive chef Simon Flint whose pedigree takes in The Groucho Club, Le Caprice and The Ivy. Then there’s Kitchen, an all-day café on the South Bank riverfront complete with outdoor seating plus a retail range of homemade products including jams, pickles, cheeses and freshly baked bread. But every theatrical production needs an understudy and the National’s comes courtesy of The Understudy […]

Foxcroft & Ginger, East Review

Easy to miss if you don’t know what you’re looking for, Foxcroft & Ginger’s latest opening in East London is nestled within a row of shops on Mile End Road and while from the outside it looks somewhat non-descript, within it’s a cavernous coffee shop that serves up unusual combinations of decadent brunch and lunchtime options. It has a cool, laid-back atmosphere and given that it was busy even when we were there at 11am on a Tuesday, it’s already proved its popularity. Upon setting foot inside you quickly realise that it caters perfectly to the edgy East End types, […]

Welcome to Woodlandia

Who says that Londoners are not outdoorsy? Just because we are based in the city, does not mean that we don’t enjoy a little fix of countryside and now we can prove those critics wrong with the return of the Queen of Hoxton’s Woodlandia. Following the success of the last year’s WigWamBam, the rooftop of the Queen of Hoxton will channel Narnia, transforming into an enchanted forest on 31st October, complete with moss-covered tree stumps and mandatory woodland pines. Enjoy the best parts of camping, cosying up to loved ones in the WigWamBam, whilst roasting marshmallows in an open fire […]

Blind-Dining at Island Grill Review

I must admit that when I first signed up for blind-dining at Island Grill, I was a little trepidatious. It wasn’t the prospect of sitting in the dark that I was concerned about, more the fact that I am probably the most uncoordinated person in the history of the planet and felt it was more than certain that a great deal of food would miss my mouth and end up on the table. However, my fear was slightly reduced by the fact I had cunningly invited someone who was even less spatially aware than me with the mentality that every […]

The Playboy Club’s Pink Tea

Along with Halloween and the start of the miserable weather, October is all about raising awareness and detoxing, so along with Stoptober (quitting smoking) and Sober for October (raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support) October is all about getting people to think and recognise the signs of breast cancer. Which is why The Playboy Club has transformed their iconic afternoon tea served in the Salvatore Bar to The Pink Afternoon Tea, with £1 from every tea being donated to Against Breast Cancer and as 'On Wednesdays, we wear  pink', or in this case eat, we headed over to check it […]

Edinburgh Gets A New Hotel

London is home to some of the best bars, clubs, restaurants, museums, fashion; well I could go on, so it can be hard to imagine why one would want to leave (the Bahamas, New York and obvious choices not applicable). As it turns out not only do we have a whole country out there to explore, we also have the pleasure of sharing land with Wales and our neighbours to the North, Scotland. If you ever find yourself out of the capital and in “Auld Reekie” (Edinburgh) then you are in for a pleasant surprise. Edinburgh is steeped with history, […]
