Christmas Slow Food and Living Market

We’ve waved goodbye to Halloween, seen as many fireworks as we could possibly cram into the weekend, and now seen our first of the ‘major’ Christmas adverts, which means it’s official – the countdown to Christmas is in full swing. However reluctant we may have been at the start of October, you can’t really argue with the festive spirit when you realise that Christmas Day is exactly 6 weeks today. Rosewood London is launching their Christmas festivities at the end of November (so if you can’t think Christmas until December this is for you) with a Christmassy spin on their weekly […]

Royal Marines Boxing Bout at Café Royal

If our birthday falls midweek we can justify going for dinner with close friends on the night and then, come the weekend, drinks and a night out with the extended friendship group. If you’re the Queen you also have two celebrations; her actual birthday on 21st April and her official birthday in June. They have royalty in their name so it comes at no surprise that Café Royal are celebrating their 150th anniversary with a whole series of glitzy events. For one night only, specially selected members of the Royal Marines will jump in a specially built ring for a […]

House of Crab Pop-Up

We all know how much London loves lobster, along with burgers, hotdogs and doughnuts it’s amassed a bit of a cult following with pop-ups and restaurants dedicated to the crustacean. However there is one crustacean that is feeling rather left out – the humble side stepping crab. This definitely doesn’t seem right when the UK has some of the best in the world.   Do not fear however because there is a crab saviour in sight, Dominic Jacob and the team behind The Running Horse (Mayfair’s oldest pub) are bringing a taste of Salcombe to Mayfair with their pop-up, House […]

7 Classic London Restaurants

We’re all creatures of habit at the end of the day. We can go to all the pop-ups and exclusive one-off events that we like, but when it comes to a special occasion; those family get together’s and meals to remember (planning a proposal anyone?) it’s the classics that really stand the test of time. Staple dining institutions that deliver on service, ambiance and great food and drink every single time. Here’s our round-up of The Handbook’s favourite go-to classic restaurants:

Le Bun at Le Zetter

Bon appétit, excusez-moi, faux pas… We are all guilty of embedding phrases en français into our dialect now and again to make us sound a little bit chic and now The Zetter Hotel are getting in on the action, becoming Le Zetter for five weeks only. Pourquoi, you may ask? Well, street food burger favourites Le Bun have got themselves a slightly more permanent home and a five month residency at The Zetter in Clerkenwell. Le Bun are adding a touch of neon to the eclectic interiors of the quirky boutique hotel. Vintage televisions and video players will be artfully […]

Bourne & Hollingsworth Open Hidden Club

Party connoisseurs Bourne & Hollingsworth are about to open a secret club in a sitting room. Ok well it’s not actually a sitting room, but it’s apparently the same size as your average sitting room. Hidden below their Clerkenwell restaurant, the bar aptly named Below & Hidden will be the cool, mysterious and moody alter ego to upstairs, which also describes us on a Friday night.  Doing away with a bar it’ll be table service with drinks served from a cabinet filled with boutique and bespoke bottled cocktails and spirits. No bar means no queue and no risking spilling your drinks […]

Game-inspired Feast at the Princess Victoria

If you think of game and you think Game of Thrones, spin the bottle or charades then think again. Game season may be one for country weekenders but Londoners are benefitting too – you only have to take a trip to Borough Market to see butchers stalls laden with venison, hare, grouse and pheasant. The Princess Victoria on Uxbridge Road is honoring this fruitful time of year with a game-inspired feast on Thursday 12th November. The Scotch Egg Challenge 2015 Champions know a thing or two about food you want to eat; nothing too fancy, nothing too delicate – it is […]

Urban Food Fest Deliveroo Takeover

Deliveroo is probably the best thing that’s happened to London in the past 2 years. Along with Uber. But Deliveroo involves food so maybe it wins. Anyway, Urban Food Fest, the free weekly street food event is this weekend a Deliveroo Guy Fawkes Takeover. Bonfire weekend is the perfect time to enjoy comfort food and booze al-autumn-fresco before winter really hits and the thought of being outside for long periods of time isn’t that enjoyable. The Urban Food Fest will have stalls from a whole host of street food brands bringing their classics as well as some specially created dishes […]

Boozy weekend brunch at Kurobuta

Sushi, meet steak. Steak, meet sushi. Japanese bar and grill Kurobuta are launching a kind of surf and turf fusion brunch of Japanese and Australian inspiration to make any benedict or baked egg seem a little bit… samey.  From Saturday 31st October, Kurobuta Marble Arch are launching their weekend party brunches. A welcome cachaça cocktail will set you up for bottomless drinking; beer, wine and brunch punch (great name) so it could either be your weekend warm-up or hair of the dog. And, because it’s brunch (and not just a bar) food will be cooked ‘live’ by head chef Scott […]
