Late Night Dining and Complimentary Nightcaps at 34 Mayfair

We’ve all been there, it’s the end of a great night; great company, great drinks, great venue, but suddenly you realise everyone else has left and the waiters are very much ready to go home – they’ve all but put their coats on. There’s nothing quite like it to prematurely end your night, or test your knowledge of late night venues in the area that 1) isn’t ridiculously expensive for entry alone and 2) has the exact vibe you are after – not too clubby, not too sleepy. The solution for such a predicament is 34 Mayfair. The perfect spot […]

Say Hello to Deep-Fried Creme Egg Burgers

Kim K broke the internet and this may just be the next thing: Creme. Egg. Burgers. Yes, you read that correctly; Sydney, take back your freakshakes and New York, keep your rainbow bagels. If you missed them in 2015 and failed to get tickets to the Creme Egg Cafe in Soho earlier this year, then this is the next best thing. K West’s Studio Kitchen are serving the burgers from their dessert menu (don’t worry, no beef patties here) with a white-chocolate-dipped, raspberry-sprinkle-scattered, sweet brioche bun encasing the star of the show. And it. Is. Battered. The battered Creme Egg […]

A Real Greek Gastronomic Feast

Tzaziki, lamb kofta, moussaka, calamari, feta, olive oil with… everything. Greek cuisine has to be up there with the best holiday food, and no matter how many times you desperately try to conjure up a Greek salad in your kitchen, it just doesn’t compare to the time you ate it with salty hair and sandy feet on a Greek island. Until now. Five chefs from one of Athens’ best-loved restaurants, Cookoovaya, are flying to London for a one-off dining experience to be held in The Real Greek’s Bankside location – with names like Spyros, Manos, Nikos, Vangelis and Pericles you […]

Bake Off’s Chetna Hosts Kitchen Takeover

We recently wrote a guide on the top 9 library bars, and we think we have another for the list. Aptly named LIBRARY, it’s a members club with bedrooms and a mezzanine bar with glass balcony area, armchairs and very well-stocked bookshelves. The concept is based around being more than just a members club; they aim to be thought-provoking and conversation-striking through a range of cultural events. A new in-house restaurant, Saint Luke’s Kitchen, also promises to be different to what we think we know, by offering a literary-inspired ‘edible story’, engaging the senses and stimulating the taste buds. Did […]

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? We bring you news of an event that combines two of our favourite things: film and food. PECKish is a supper club with a twist that serves the audience of a cult classic film a 5-course meal, inspired by the movie itself. No more on-screen food envy. Each month shows a different film – March is the turn of one of the all-time […]

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 […]

12 Classic Pies to Eat This British Pie Week

Who ate all the pies? Us, actually, but it’s British Pie Week this week so we think it’s completely acceptable. Crusty pasty has never been more enjoyable and it comes at the perfect time – January diets are forgotten and the concept of beach bodies still seems far enough away to be able to indulge, so dig into your paper bag, bite into that wonderful buttery crust and savour every mouthful.

An Evening of Gin: Distillery to Dinner

Before you get your hands on your first G&T, guests will be led round the City of London Distillery, which is on nearby Farringdon Street. Back in the height of London’s gin obsession there was a gin […]

London Fashion Week might be finishing today but that doesn’t mean that you have to stop being the sartorial don that you are…the streets are your catwalk and all that.
