Avenue Restaurant Review

When we heard that D & D restaurant, Avenue on St James Street was re-launching we couldn’t wait to see the end result, we had heard big things and we weren’t disappointed because heck was it good! The restaurant is almost unrecognisable from its former days – inspired by a Manhattan loft, it is chic and sophisticated, (it’s the sort of place you want to be taken on a date to, or could while away an evening drinking cocktails with your friends) yet still fresh and relaxed. With gold, nude and navy tones the restaurant is broken up into a […]

Mayfair Pizza Co. Sweet Pizza Review

Take everything you think you know about pizza and re-imagine it. That’s what Mayfair Pizza Co. has done, with interesting results. Mayfair Pizza Co have created a Sweet Pizza menu with fruits and chocolates instead of tomatoes and cheese. The pizzas are ideal for sharing due to their size, (smaller than a regular pizza but still pretty sizeable) and because all that dough makes for a heavy pudding especially if you have already sampled a savoury pizza for your main. The Sweet Pizza menu has 4 options; Wild Strawberry with White Chocolate, Nutella Calzone, Banana Tiramisu and Limoncello & Lime. […]

Their brilliant cheese supplier – La Cave a Fromage will be hosting the night with Jeff Brown, who will be talking through all the cheeses on offer.

Far Rockaway Review

The first thing that struck us about Far Rockaway was its size – it is vast, a mix of low tables, high  tables, little tables, trestle tables, sofas and bars, the next thing we  noticed was just how colourful it was. Every inch is decorated, whether it is graffiti art, skateboards lining the bar, neon lit up signs huge murals of world leaders or the album artwork that is plastered all over the bathroom walls.  And yet somehow it wasn’t overwhelming or garish which is always a bonus. The menu is unashamedly American, no fine dining here – just lots […]

Valentine’s Day at Gilgamesh

We love flowers and chocolates for Valentine’s Day as much as anyone else but we also really love cocktails and we adore diamonds. So put diamonds and cocktails together and we would have one very happy Valentine’s Day. Well over at Gilgamesh, in Camden, one lucky diner will win a diamond worth £2000 (provided by renowned Hatton Garden jeweller, Star Jewellers) which they will find at the bottom of a Pink Martini aptly named Diamonds are Forever.  A cocktail that is sure to impress and a Valentine’s Day to remember.   Whilst you are ordering as many cocktails as you […]

Suka Review

Last week The Handbook stepped out of the torrential rain on Berners Street and into the slightly surreal world of Sanderson. We walked through the dazzlingly white Long Bar, past the magical court yard and into Suka – the Malaysian restaurant, the majority of the restaurant is long communal trestle tables but we were in a corner which was cut off by a black drape, wing- back black leather chairs circled  a black table dotted with candles. It’s wonderfully secluded whilst still being part of the restaurant, and it felt rather like we were in a club about to start playing […]
