There’s A New Café And Salon Flor-al Your Wellness Needs

You’ve probably noticed by now but the city has gone brunch bloomin’ bananas, and quite frankly, we’re all for it! But finding one that doesn’t let you fall off the health bandwagon is excruciatingly hard, seriously how am I meant to resist waffles trickling with syrup if they’re staring me right in the face… But, lucky for us, there’s a new healthy brunch spot arriving in Embassy Gardens and it’s serving up all the Insta feels… After just one glance at their Insta-worthy interiors, we’ve gone into a floral frenzy, already Ubering our way over to Embassy Gardens right now because London’s hip […]

What would your ‘death row dish’ be? The last meal you requested before heading to the gallows? The tradition is that condemned prisoners are allowed to choose their final meal before meeting their maker and have carte blanche when it comes to the menu. It’s a bizarre moment of...

ROKA Still Has Serious Wow-Factor 15 Years On…

Does anyone else use iPhone notes to make listicles of all the London restos they want to try? I certainly do. And, amongst a hubbub of alternate cuisines flooding my notes, from naan at Dishoom to sushi at Nobu lies Japanese at ROKA which, on a tipple-filled evening in September, I finally had the pleasure of putting to the test. When German-born chef Rainer Becker extended his love of the Robata grill to the ravenous mouths of Londoners back in 2004, it’s doubtful he knew just how successful his Charlotte Street restaurant would become. Fast forward 15 years and we were […]

Galvin At Windows Just Got A Whole Lot Sexier…

Found on the 28th floor of the Park Lane Hilton, Galvin at Windows is widely considered to be one of the city’s best hotel restaurants. Its popularity unsurprisingly stems from the floor to ceiling glass windows that open it up to the London skyline, as well as the equally alluring presence of dishy general manager Fred Sirieix (when he isn’t moonlighting on Channel 4’s First Dates, that is). Following a successful thirteen years at the top of the restaurant scene, Galvin at Windows has recently decided to take its offering to new heights and revamp its bar. Enter 10º, romantically […]

Pasta-It On: There’s An All Day Italian Arrived In Hampstead And You’re Gonna Want A Pizza It…

If there’s one thing better than Italian food, it’s more Italian food. How about all day Italian food? Pass the olives… Terra Terra is the new Italian restaurant from the folks that brought us the Mondrian, Manhattan Loft Project and Dreamland in Margate, and so the bar’s set high. And it looks like this North London Finchley eatery is going to take that bar and down every drink in it because the restaurant will, of course, be serving all day bar snacks and Italian cocktails – an Italian Mary (vodka, tomato juice, balsamic, Mediterranean herbs and pickles, in case you were […]

Where To Eat Out In… Brixton

A previous version of this article featured an opening paragraph that caused distress to many Brixtonites. Our article was in no way intended to be racist, but we acknowledge that drawing attention to (and appearing to welcome) Brixton’s process of gentrification, however tongue-in-cheek...
