Street Food, Live Music and Movie Marathons in Tooting

We all love a pop-up, especially one that involves food and/or drink, so when we hear of multiple pop-ups under one roof, we’re sold. Tooting Pop Ups is brainchild of brothers, Al and Nick Heathcote, of Skeleton Entertainment who founded things like Dalston’s tapas and cocktail bar, La Cabina – basically, they know what it takes to have a good night out. Street food is of course playing a key part (see, we told you they know a good time), with two residencies taking place at a time for up to six months. Tasked with kicking things off is Every Juan […]

The Jimmy Beaumont Capsule Collection and Dinner

Take a walk through history this spring on Savile Row. Each tailor has produced an outfit for fictional 1920’s hotelier Jimmy Beaumont, invented by Beaumont hotel founder and CEO, Jeremy King OBE to inform guests of the interior design of the iconic 1926 hotel building. During the war, American-born Jimmy discovered the tailors on Savile Row and developed a weakness for their quality clothing. Jimmy could regularly be seen walking around his hotel in his 3 button suit with double breasted collar with a Yale tie, however he did insist on American stripes rather than British stripes when it came […]

Pasta for Breakfast at Palatino

As a child, you were probably told you couldn’t have ice-cream/chocolate/pizza for breakfast – no one to stop us now though, eh? What you probably weren’t stopped from having was pasta though, probably because you never asked for it – but just think of how good it would be at 10am, a little carby goodness? Stevie Parle thinks so too, because at his latest restaurant, Palatino, they have just launched their breakfast menu and it includes buccatini carbonara. Yep, you can now have carbonara for breakfast. If you can’t get your head round that, then other dishes include salt cod […]

Doggy Brunch comes to London

It’s no secret, we love dogs. With the advent of pet cafes springing up (Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium) we can’t help but feel man’s best friend deserves some attention. Whilst many airlines now let your canine companion travel beside you and an increasing number of hotels allow pets, one of the last bastions of dog-free experiences are fine dining restaurants. Until now. The award-winning M Victoria St has announced the launch of its new Six Legs brunch menu. Full of tempting treats for humans and their cute companion, each of you can enjoy two delicious albeit rather different courses. Whilst they […]

River Cottage Residency at The Imperial

We just Googled how long it would take us to get to the award-winning River Cottage from The Handbook HQ. Apparently, it’s somewhere between 5 and 13 hours, unless we paid an unholy amount and flew. Basically, it takes rather a long time to get to there, it isn’t somewhere we can just visit for the evening, which is a shame. So, it’s rather good isn’t it that Steven Lamb, the curing and smoking expert is coming to London to cook up a six -course tasting menu at The Imperial. Following on from the success of last year, he’ll be […]
