We Review: The Basque Menu at Bar Boulud

What? Michelin-starred chef Daniel Boulud’s most recent trip saw him head to Savoie and onto the neighbouring Basque Country. On his travels he filled up on fresh fish, pinxtos and bacalao, his new spring menu brings together these classic dishes and flavours. New? No, Bar Boulud was Daniel Boulud’s first UK venture, opening back in 2010 and it remains his only London restaurant, his Basque-inspired spring menu, however, launched at the end of April.   Where? Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London 66 Knightsbridge, SW1X 7LA, www.mandarinoriental.com The Look: Based on the feel of a wine cellar, Bar Boulud isn’t opulent […]

10 Reasons To Visit Madrid

I spent nearly three years living in Madrid, relentlessly exploring all the city has to offer, and since returning to London I’ve written a novel loosely based on my experiences. When Evie, the main character, moves to Madrid she is initially disappointed by the lack of flamenco guitar players on every corner, bullfighters strutting down the streets and beautiful flowers dangling off every balcony. Madrid may not have the picturesque beauty of Andalucía, or the endless beaches of Barcelona, but Evie soon finds herself falling head over heels in love with the charm of the city. The Spanish like to say […]

ALL The Royal Wedding Stuff Going On

In case you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last few months you’re probably getting to the yawn and groan stage of royal wedding coverage. Hunker down, it’s going to get a lot worse. Or better still, find that rock now and hide under it. But perhaps you’re the sort of soul who instinctively reaches for a Union Jack at the every thought of a royal wedding? Do you get out of bed when Radio 4 play the national anthem at 1am or collect royal crockery and other regal tat? Then we have a treat for you: all the […]

The Boxsets We’ve Been Watching This Month

I know we spend most of our evenings out tasting and drinking for your enjoyment, but somehow we also seem to find enough moments to binge watch entire seasons of mediocre to good telly. Here’s what we’ve been watching this month… Editor Emily‘s Watching: Ordeal by Innocence Sarah Philips’ take on Agatha Christie’s Ordeal by Innocence was already surrounded by drama before it even aired, with the team having to reshoot all the scenes including Ed Westwick following allegations of sexual assault. So, when it did hit our screens this Easter rather than the usual Christmas slot, there was even more […]

Ottolenghi is Opening a New Restaurant: ROVI

The man who inspires most of London’s dinner party menus, Ottolenghi is set to open a new restaurant with his team this summer. And since Brangelina, Bennifer and Hiddleswift are all no more, we’re going to bring you a new one, ROVI. No, we haven’t gone off on a tangent, it’s the name of the restaurant, it’s a little bit of NOPI, a little bit of Fitzrovia but it’s doing its own thing with vegetables and sustainability taking centre stage. There’ll be a new focus on fermentation, cooking over fire and making the most of leftovers to create new dishes. […]

The One With the Trifle: Regina Phalange Pop-up

‘What’s not to like? Custard, good. Jam, good. Meat, good!’ Yep Friends fans will know exactly what we’re talking about. They might also still be lamenting over the fact that the last episode aired 14 years ago, which quite frankly just makes us feel hideously old. To mark the anniversary Deliveroo will be launching the Regina Phalange pop-up, a delivery restaurant that serves just one dish, the meat and sweet trifle. Yep the classic pudding that Rachel made for Thanksgiving. Not cutting any corners, the trifle includes lady fingers, custard, raspberries, bananas, whipped cream and beef sautéed with peas and […]

Park Chinois Launch Opulent Immersive Show

If, Mayfair restaurant, Park Chinois wasn’t opulent enough, then they have just launched a new immersive show that is inspired by the sophistication and glamour of 1930s Shanghai. Running from Wednesday to Sunday each week and performed during dinner, you’ll be transported to a world of acrobatics, dances, musicians and mesmerising characters, through the dazzling show that has been choreographed by artistic director Diana Pintado. Bringing together comedy, burlesque, jazz and dancing, the theatrical show promises to be an evening of luxury and decadence. Whilst you watch you’ll be able to dine from the menu which includes the likes of […]

Learn Something New at Mondrian London

Remember when you’d spend rainy Saturday afternoons colouring in, making things and watching Art Attack? There’s something so satisfying about making something and whilst Neil Buchanan might have moved on from the painting (he’s now in a heavy metal band, would you believe?) we are all still for crafts. In fact, there is a whole week dedicated to it, London Craft Week will be returning from the 9th – 13th May 2018 and to celebrate, Mondrian London will be hosting a series of workshops and talks to encourage us to release our inner artists and creative minds. Taking place in […]

Feisty Women Wanted: Apply Here…

We Review: W New York Times Square

What? New York, The Big Apple, the city that never sleeps. It’s my favourite city (after London of course, my loyalty runs deep) and on my last visit, I wanted to go all out, I wanted to go big, I wanted to stay right in the heart of the city: Times Square. So, I headed to W New York – Times Square, a minute from Times Square? Check. Two seconds from a Starbucks? You betcha. 99 cent pizza so close you can smell it? Yep. It had everything I needed for my all-American stay. New? Nope, it’s been open since […]
