A Real Taste Of Spain At Camino

How do you top opening four hugely successful Spanish restaurants? Open a fifth! Camino Group, responsible for Camino restaurants in Monunent, Bankside, Blackfriars and King’s Cross (not to mention Bar Pepito in King’s Cross), are opening their next venture in Shoreditch and it’s looking like it’ll be fantastic. Camino was set up by Richard Bigg; inspired by a roadtrip in an old-style Mini through rural Spain he was fired up to bring that traditional Spanish taste back to London.

The Cool Cats Are In St James’s For London Restaurant Festival

“Bustopher Jones is not skin and bones, In fact, he’s remarkably fat. He doesn’t haunt pubs – he has eight or nine clubs, For he’s the St James’s Street Cat!” T.S. Elliot’s catty creation, later immortalised by the Lloyd-Webber musical Cats, will, we’re sure, be donning his white spats for The London Restaurant Festival. The annual event celebrates the range and wealth of the city’s restaurants and St James’s is perfectly placed to shine nearly as much as Bustopher’s “coat of fastidious black”. This postage stamp of an area, hemmed in by Mayfair to the North and Westminster below, may […]

Say Ciao To Pastaio – Soho’s New Fresh Pasta Restaurant

We should have probably known this, but turns out that a pastaio isn’t a nut, but a person who makes pasta by hand. Thankfully due to Stevie Parle we’ll never forget again, his new restaurant is called Pastaio and we expect we’ll be spending a lot of time there! Chef Parle, who was responsible for Dock Kitchen, Rotorino, Palatino, Craft London and a partner at Sardine is already a dab hand at this. It goes without saying but Pastaio will be based around fresh pasta, and when it launches next month the 70 cover restaurant will contrast striking interiors, art and […]
