Sartoria’s Italian Alpine Terrace

This winter, Savile Row’s Sartoria have partnered with Italian aperitif Campari to create a winter terrace inspired by Italy’s premier ski resort, Cortina d’Ampezzo, and all part of a greater festive celebration from D&D London, titled Fairytales in the City. The Libare Bar has created an array of seasonal cocktails to make the terrace suitably alpine. You’ll find on the menu the Italian Affair, which is made from Frangelico liqueur with Barcadi, coconut, lime and ginger; the Winter Daiquiri which combines appleton estate rare blend, cinnamon, apple, lime and vanilla syrup.

The Cavendish Review: What We Thought

New? The Cavendish has just turned 2 and has launched a brand new menu to celebrate. Where? 35 New Cavendish Street, Marylebone, W1G 9TR, www.35newcavendish.co.uk On the Menu: Head Chef Douglas Santi knows a thing or two about Italian cooking and just like in any neighbourhood or Italian restaurant, food is at it’s core. The new menu is a tempting combination of the classic (chargrilled chicken), refined (beef carpaccio), sophisticated (oysters and caviar) and the down right… Marylebone (cigars). The classic 100 layer lasagne remains on the menu but we favoured of some newer dishes. Drinks wise, the wine list is refreshingly approachable and affordable, […]

The Kitty Hawk: Department Store of Dining

Today sees the opening of The Kitty Hawk – the first venture from the Wright & Bell group, a new restaurant which is being labelled as a department store of dining. Why?
