Eat the Movies: Cinema Supper Club

Ever drooled at a scene in a movie? Does the pasta Julia Roberts eats in the Italian part of Eat, Pray Love give you serious carb cravings? Bridget Jones have you reaching for the Ben & Jerry’s?

Urban Coterie Launch Bottomless Brunch

We’ll never tire of brunch, that meal where it is totally acceptable to drink at 11am (you couldn’t do that if you were just having breakfast), where you can eat blueberries and waffles (can’t do that at lunch) and then scrambled eggs just because you can. As we say, it’s the best. This weekend will see the launch of Urban Coterie’s new bottomless brunch which includes three courses and unlimited Mimosas. Created by Anthony Demetre and Head Chef Killian Lynch the menu will include everything from scrambled duck eggs with smoked salmon and French toast with mascarpone and blueberries to […]

‘The Raw Chef’ Hosts Supper Club at Tiny Leaf

Food with the word ‘tiny’ associated to it wouldn’t normally sound that appealing but when the tiny in question is Tiny Leaf, the new organic, zero waste restaurant in Notting Hill, we’re all ears. Formerly associated with hippies in hot countries and people whose ovens have broken, raw food is now widely noted for it’s health benefits, not to mention one hell of a jaw workout. Although Tiny Leaf isn’t exclusively raw, it is vegetarian. Enter Russell James, the UK’s leading ‘raw chef’ as he hosts a series of raw, plant-based supper clubs at Tiny Leaf, beginning this Friday. For […]

Number 90’s 4 Day Birthday Party

If we could have a 4-day birthday celebration we absolutely would. Day one would be an all-day warm-up; we’re envisaging friends, family, drinks, live music and ice cream. A dry-ice ice cream van to be precise… Although that’s the only thing that would be dry – lots of cocktails are a necessity. OK, OK, this all sounds amazing but it isn’t completely a figment of our imagination, it’s Hackney Wick bar and restaurant, Number 90’s 2nd birthday extravaganza. Turning 2 is something to celebrate, so why not go all out with four days of partying? Each day has a slightly […]

An Evening With ex-England Rugby Captain Martin Johnson

The past few weekends have been spent in the pub or in front of the TV (willingly or unwillingly), admiring (the skills of) rugby players from England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, France and Italy battling it out to be crowned Six Nations Champions. The historic Calcutta Cup has already been fought (that’s England v Scotland for rugby rookies) and next week it’s Wales’ turn to take on the boys on their home turf; Twickenham. Beaufort House showed live screenings of the World Cup last year so we know they take rugby seriously. Next Friday (11th March), they are hosting an evening […]

The Botanist Broadgate’s: Hot Cross Bunny Burger

If Watership Down has you reaching for the tissues, then you might want to stop reading now. If, however, you’re a fan of game then read on… this year the Easter Bunny is meeting a rather sticky but delicious end at The Botanist Broadgate Circle. It won’t be bringing you Easter eggs in a basket this year, rather it will be appearing in the form of a rabbit patty, topped with smoked bacon, mushrooms, Lincolnshire rarebit and served between two light, sweet hot cross buns.

Celebrate Mother’s Day Like The Italians

There’s no doubting that Mother’s Day is a big event in the British calendar. Doting daughters and appreciative sons nationwide will take their mothers out for lunch, arms full of flowers and cards. Whilst the Brits do celebrate family pretty well, we can still learn a thing or two from the Italians. Mamma Mia jokes aside, South Kensington restaurant Daphne’s are offering a Mother’s Day with a difference, starting with the fact that the celebration won’t actually take place on Mother’s Day itself… If you already know Daphne’s, you’ll know their conservatory room is the place to be – floral […]
