LASSCO Bar and Dining Opens on Maltby Street

An architectural salvage warehouse may not be the obvious choice for a restaurant but LASSCO bar & dining don’t want to go with the crowd. Tucked away just off Maltby Street (home to our favourite foodie market), the venue is no stranger to food, having previously hosted a handful of fairy lit supper clubs, but is now shifting permanently to restaurant/bar status as friends and business partners Jerome Slesinski and James Knox Boothman move in. The duo met back in 2009 whilst working at the Royal Oak on Columbia Road Flower Market and will bring the same easy-going dining experience to […]

A Michelin Basque Brunch Comes to Covent Garden

Brunch: possibly our favourite meal ever. Great for all occasions, from boozy gatherings to a hearty meal after a particularly heavy night, we’re sure you’ll agree everything is better with a side of fluffy pancakes and eggs benny. Right? Wrong. Three Michelin-starred chef Eneko Atxa has forgone all these brunch staples to create an entirely new menu at Eneko at One Aldwych, bringing a taste of the Basque-country to Covent Garden. Eneko at One Aldwych offers a variety of culinary styles, from Euskal Azoka (street food), to Txoko (classics) and Asador (grill).
