7 Course Tasting Menu at Maze

Do you remember that episode of FRIENDS where Monica was reminiscing about a time she baked 200 cookies and Chandler asked if it was for a bake sale, then Monica replied ‘no, just a Friday night.’? Well, in that scenario, we are Monica. However, even our office was a little taken aback (read: incredibly excited) when we heard about a 7 course  tasting menu at Maze. To celebrate ten years of playful culinary innovation and exceptional fine dining in the heart of Mayfair, Maze and Gordon Ramsay Group are offering up a spectacular seven-course tasting menu. Head Chef Alex Thiebaut’s […]

Acoustic Sunday Circus

Think back to when you were 13 and wanted to go to the local circus with your mates, because that’s where all the cool kids were going. Your Mum probably told you to be careful and not to run away and join the circus as part of some insane motorbikes-over-people’s heads act. Well, here at The Handbook, we’re not exactly ones for listening to our mothers, so we suggest you lose all your inhibitions and join the fun of this modern day London circus! Acoustic Sunday has teamed up with Sunday Circus to bring you an absurd afternoon of fatuous […]

Sunday Movie Club

Whilst we don’t want to say goodbye to our rather non-existent summer, (we’re still holding out for last minute heatwave) we can’t deny that we aren’t looking forward to autumn; the crisp mornings, the chance to wear our coats again, the absence of the sticky sweat that coats all Londoners permanently during summer and the fact that it’s acceptable to spend evenings in watching films. Sunborn London the super yacht hotel, moored in Royal Victoria Dock is celebrating this by launching its Sunday Movie Club in the auditorium found in the bow of the yacht. Running on the first Sunday […]

Salaam Namaste Review

Salaam Namaste is tucked away in London Bloomsbury; a couple of minutes’ walk from Russell Square station, and is the proud owner of ‘Best South Asian Restaurant’ at the Asian Curry Awards. When we arrived at 6pm we were only the second people there but after half an hour the place had almost filled, and by the time we left there were only two small tables available. I’m not a fan of poppadums’ or the sauces that typically go with them but I could not get enough of the creamy, tikka style sauce they serve at Salaam Namaste or the […]

HIX Launch Wild Food Market!

We’ve all heard the horror stories about what supermarkets and other big brands are really putting in our food, and whether there’s truth to them or not, the allegations have definitely sparked a consumer interest, in fresh, raw and wild foodstuffs. This September, HIX Mayfair at Brown’s Hotel, will be transforming its usually discreet and elegant restaurant into a bustling wild food market, so that you can pile up your plate without having to worry about any nasty chemicals. In a change to the standard layout and traditional dining experience, up to 12 vibrant market stalls and cooking stations will […]

Harvest Festival at Rabbit and The Shed

Living in London, harvest probably doesn’t really cross your mind that much, it was just something you had to do at primary school, when you were asked to bring in some vegetables and your mum sent you in with some obscure tinned beans that she bought once to try in a recipe. Well it’s time we started to appreciate it, because we hate to break it to you, but did you know potatoes don’t actually come from Waitrose? And the Gladwin Brothers aka the team behind The Shed and Rabbit are bringing harvest right to Notting Hill and the Kings […]

Delicious London Launches Lick London

Ok, let’s just put it out there on front street, for The Handbook team, food is life. Not a day goes by where we don’t excitedly discuss what we’re planning on eating for lunch, talk about what restaurant review someone is going to, or beg our boss to buy office snacks (we always succeed). So you can imagine our excitement when we found out about Delicious London launching Lick London, a new gastronomic concierge service with tiered membership. Anything to bring us closer to the good stuff. Lick London is all about enjoying the best of London’s culinary landscape and […]

Open Air Cinemas At Grosvenor Film Festival

We all know that there’s nothing better than cuddling up to the sofa and watching a film, right? Well, actually there is something better and that is enjoying a classic movie against a stunning outdoor backdrop. And anyway, staring at that ‘vintage’ poster your housemate bought from Urban Outfitters gets boring after a while. Presented by The Nomad Cinema in association with Chestertons, The Grosvenor Film Festival is offering beautiful outdoor spaces in Mayfair & Belgravia for your viewing pleasure. Belgrave’s Square Garden, Brown Hart Gardens and Wilton Crescent Garden will all be transformed into open air cinemas where you can enjoy […]

Doggy Disco At M Restaurant

It’s a well-known fact that as a nation, Britons are obsessed with pooches. Over the last few years, we have seen doggy apparel lines, dog hotels and even canine-friendly ice cream! It seems like the only aspect of human life yet to be conquered by our four-legged friends is the nightlife scene…that is, until now. This September, M Restaurants will be hosting a Pedigree Pooch Party with a difference by bringing the all-singing, all-dancing Doggy Disco to London with a back to school twist to celebrate the start of a new school year. Yes, that’s right, not only do you […]

5 Of The Best Sunday Lunches

If there’s one thing that unites all Londoners, it’s the love of a classic British Sunday roast. We’re talking tasty slabs of meat, with all the delicious trimmings. The annoying thing about roasts though, is that they’re a bit of a ‘mare to make and when we’re suffering from a Sunday morning hangover, slaving away in the kitchen is not something we’re looking to do. Check out our guide to 5 Of The Best Sunday Lunches and see how you can get your Yorkshire pudding fix with minimal effort.

34 Mayfair’s Unlimited Champagne Brunch

Legend has it that the first Champagne coupe was shaped around Marie Antoinette’s breast, whether this is true or not we can neither confirm or deny, but what is true is that 34 Mayfair’s coupe is moulded around Kate Moss’ left breast. It was commissioned to celebrate her 40th birthday and 25 years in the fashion industry. As you do. And throughout summer you’ll be able to make use of these coupe with their unlimited Champagne brunch or lunch. All you have to do is order a single glass of Champagne and then hey presto just like that you can […]
