Kitchenette: Review

Since having opened in Istabul in 2005, the Turkish café, bar and brasserie, Kitchenette, has gone from strength to strength with a total of 24 being opened well across the borders into Baku, St Petersburg and last November it came to Putney. Situated on Putney Bridge Road, the 80 seat café and bar is light and airy with earthy, natural colours reflecting its Istanbul roots.  Seeing as the sun was shining though, we took to the terrace outside, ordered two spicy Bloody Marys and perused the all-day dining menu. Their approach is traditional Turkish cooking with a modern Istanbul inspired […]

No Scones At Buddha Bar

Buddha Bar has recently launched a new afternoon tea and they are doing away with the scones. That’s right. Their tea is a scone free zone. They have a created a lighter tea with an Asian twist which is perfect for the warmer months and especially now that we are all supposed to be fixated on getting that bikini body- supposedly being the main word. Sip on a glass of Champagne or one of their simple oriental teas and start with the likes of hoisin duck steam buns, Buddha-Bar’s renowned tuna tartare served on toasted fennel bread and Vietnamese summer […]

Pescatori: Review

Been to Pescatori? No? Well you should. There are two restaurants one in Mayfair and one in Fitzrovia and it was the latter that we visited on a Wednesday night, because it was midweek and everyone needs a midweek pick me up. Fact.  From the street, the restaurant was inviting with twinkling lights dotting the terrace and inside it was kept simple with white washed walls, curved arches and a mix of intimate booths and long tables. If they were going for a family run tavern meets London restaurant feel then they’ve succeeded. It was relaxed and informal – even […]

The Beach at Bluebird

Having been transformed into an ice rink at Christmas, the courtyard at Bluebird is now being given a summer makeover and becoming a beach… that’s right a beach on the Kings Road, well they have a sandbox and that’s enough for us! Why are we really excited though? Because they are going to be serving the new Moet Ice Champagne (when you didn’t think Champagne could get any better, it just did) and serving up an all-day BBQ, what is it with BBQs and just being able to keep eating and eating and eating….? With the World Cup and Wimbledon […]
