London’s New Pizzeria: Quartieri

Quartieri is a Napoletana pizzeria coming to Kilburn this spring with one aim – to make the best pizzas using the finest produce from Naples. The menu will make the most of artisanal produce from independent suppliers, to start there’ll be frittura such as crocchette, arancini and bruschetta topped with buffalo mozzarella and tomato. Of course, you’re there for the pizza. The team are taking inspiration from a family recipe dating back to 1923, from the guys who brought Naples the famous Pizzeria Trianon Vomero.

Mayfair’s Smart New Japanese Pop-Up

If you’re anything like us, you’ll have a never-ending mental list of pop-ups and supper clubs you want to visit before they disappear as quickly as they arrived. Unfortunately, despite our best intentions, this isn’t always possible – be it because everyone else has pipped us to the post (one recent pop-up bar had a waiting list of 8,000) or the run of one or two dates simply don’t work. A month-long pop-up/kitchen takeover – call it what you will – is now running, and will continue to run throughout April. Mayfair’s Avenue is hosting the event which will see […]

Kensington’s Rooftop Proms

Summer in London is all about getting to as many rooftops as possible – everyone knows that and the most tranquil is, of course, The Roof Gardens in Kensington. They’ve got flamingos, ducks, a beautiful courtyard, so many plants and now classical music. On certain Wednesdays in May and August they’ll have performances from the Royal College of Music who are returning for their fourth year. Each ticket includes a cocktail and you’ll also be able to buy the likes of risotto, gourmet burgers and strawberries and cream.

5 New Afternoon Teas With An International Twist

You can’t get much more quintessentially British than afternoon tea but, as much as we love it, sometimes we crave respite from dainty cakes and cucumber sandwiches. We don’t want a break completely though, which just as well the new spate of teas-with-an-international-twist have landed so you can indulge in scones with sweet labneh and homemade barberry, cranberry and rose jam, Atlantic prawn skagen on seeded rye, and kukicha with cherry blossom tea.

London’s Favourite Rooftop Cinema is Back for Summer

Summer is on its way, shout it from the rooftops! Well, four rooftops in particular: the Bussey Building (Peckham), Roof East (Statford) The Queen of Hoxton (Shoreditch) and Kensington Roof Gardens, who have just been announced as participating venues for the summer 2017 series of Rooftop Film Club.
