Bocca di Lupo launches ‘In Viaggio’

‘Favourite’ is a word that is thrown about a lot. Everywhere claims to be a ‘London favourite’ but few places actually live up to the hype. However, Bocca di Lupo is not one of those places. A Soho institution, the Italian restaurant has earned the ‘favourite’ and has been loved by critics and diners alike from its opening in 2008. Famed for its feel-good atmosphere and regional Italian food, the popular trattoria is introducing ‘In Viaggio’, a phrase meaning ‘to travel’, a series of month-long regional takeovers, which will delve deeper into the varied cuisine, produce and techniques that span […]

Spring Combat Waste From Scratch

With upcycling set to be a leading food trend of 2017, it seems fitting that Spring, Skye Gyngell’s elegant restaurant in Somerset House, has launched a fresh menu dedicated to reducing food waste. 1/3 of all food grown or manufactured in the world is thrown out, and 40% of all fruit and vegetables in the country are discarded merely for appearing ugly, misshapen or for sporting the odd hole, but Spring’s chefs are doing their bit to combat these statistics by using their leftovers and surplus products in unconventional ways. Oh, and at the bargain price of £20 for three courses, there’s really no […]

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll know that 2013 saw Londoners rejoice at the Covent Garden opening of American favourite Shake Shack which, despite immediate success, did not open a new branch for another two years. Shake Shack has finally given us more reason to celebrate, opening its fifth site at Victoria’s Nova and sweet talking us into celebrating with a limited-edition Mast Brothers treat – the Mast Cocoa Beer Float – complimentary with the purchase of any burger on opening day. Created by Shake Shack’s Culinary Director Mark Rosati and Mast London’s Head Chocolate Maker Jon Hogan, […]

Make Way For The Cosiest Bar in London

Londoners seem to love a secret bar. We know, you just can’t seem to get enough. Anything with ‘secret’, ‘underground’ or ‘hidden’ in the title, invariably means a whole host of people will flock to said location, only to be disappointed that a hundred other people had the same idea. But that is a thing of the past. Set to become Tooting’s best kept secret, The Hill Station could be the cosiest bar in South West London. We mean, cosy. The bar only has a 12 person capacity and is hidden away in Broadway Market. Brought to London by the Heathcote Brothers, […]
