Breakfast at Crab Tavern

Anyone who knows anything about food will tell you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day…and also the most underrated. It gets the least press out of all the meals, after being repeatedly dismissed as just cereal and toast. The Americans get the important of treating all meals as equals especially over at Crab Tavern, a New York style restaurant specialising in seafood (but not at breakfast, don’t worry). Now whilst seafood may not feature heavily in the morning menu it does offer more classic treats like the Bacon Sarnie, Pancakes with fruit and syrup, the Full […]

Urban Edibles Supper Club

We have all heard of dumpster diving and if you ask us, it’s not exactly an activity we would love to try. However, rummaging around for unsold Tesco chicken wraps is not the same thing as some fine-dining foraging. In fact, Urban Edibles are offering a decidedly upmarket new wild food Supper Club, centring on carefully crafted small plates and cocktails created with locally foraged herbs, vegetables and flowers. Now that, we can get on board with! Urban Edibles will be taking place at Ask For Janice, the Modern British All-day restaurant and bar that looks onto Smithfield’s Market. Guests […]

From the 3rd to the 7th August the Pizza Pilgrims will be parking their Piaggio van in Cinnamon Kitchen’s alfresco terrace to serve up pizzas from noon until 9pm each day. As you can guess these pizzas aren’t your typical Italian offering, nope instead you’ll find Tandoori Chicken, green chilli and cheese and lamb Rogan Josh calzone.  They’re all priced the same too (a mere £8) […]
