Ottolenghi Set to Open His Largest Restaurant Yet in Fitzrovia

Ottolenghi has been a house hold name now for years, and his empire has more than doubled in size since it all began in 2002. Once upon a time Ottolenghi was a pastry chef, with no comprehension of the English’s traditional meals. What was the appeal? So often our dishes lacked flavour, seasoning and most importantly imagination. Before things get too harsh and we start berating ourselves, let’s just take a moment. England is a country where the only things we grow particularly well are potatoes…and weeds. So, the fact that one our staples is bangers and mash, is not […]

The Supper Club Opening Its First Permanent Restaurant in Fulham

Everyone loves a supper club, they’re intimate, special and a little bit underground-y. They’re also not a restaurant. So when a supper club achieves enough success to go professional and open a bricks-and-mortar place of their own, there’s always a little bit of you that’s worried it’ll ruin things, a bit like when your favourite indie band gets signed by a big label. Well thank goodness that Bistro Mirey isn’t like that, in fact we think it’ll be the making of them. After a series of successful supper clubs, including popping up at Cookoo N1 in Islington and The Charles […]

He says “I want to challenge people’s perceptions of Japanese food… I want to make it accessible to everyone”, how does one do that? Jam on some old school rock n’ roll and watch the flocks descend.

Monday the 15th January, has me quaking in fear. Why? Why you ask, because apparently it’s the most depressing day of the year. I had no idea this was the case, but now that I’ve been told, I can’t shake the growing dread that consumes me every minute the 15th gets closer. With this in mind, the Samaritans have teamed up with Carnaby street for a tea takeover. In the true British sprit of things, the Samaritan crew are taking a stand with tea.
