3 and 6 Bar, Fortnum & Mason’s New Bar

If you were having a cocktail party in the 1930s and didn’t want to have to put in the work, then you could pay Fortnum & Mason to throw the party for you in your own house. Handy. And the cost for that was just three shillings and sixpence, or in today’s terms £11 (don’t worry that didn’t include alcohol, otherwise we really are getting a rough deal now) which is the same price as Fortnum’s iconic cocktails. Whilst you can’t get Fortnum’s to throw a party for you, for 3’6 you can visit their new bar: 3 and 6. […]

Doggy Brunch comes to London

It’s no secret, we love dogs. With the advent of pet cafes springing up (Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium) we can’t help but feel man’s best friend deserves some attention. Whilst many airlines now let your canine companion travel beside you and an increasing number of hotels allow pets, one of the last bastions of dog-free experiences are fine dining restaurants. Until now. The award-winning M Victoria St has announced the launch of its new Six Legs brunch menu. Full of tempting treats for humans and their cute companion, each of you can enjoy two delicious albeit rather different courses. Whilst they […]

Blacklock Opens in the City

Locations with character and history are key when it comes to Gordon and the Blacklock team. Their first restaurant is a housed in a former Soho brothel and now, their second restaurant will be opening in an old electricity substation in the basement of a Grade II listed building. Which just so happens to sit on the site of one of the oldest Medieval meat markets in the city. Obviously, the meat on site is going to be much better now than the meat on offer back in the Medieval period – as you’d expect. They’ve been in close talks […]

Nirvana Kitchen Review: What We Thought

What: Smart pan-Asian dining in a hotel restaurant. New? Nirvana Kitchen is new to Marylebone, connected to the 5* Montcalm Hotel, metres from Marble Arch. Where: 61 Upper Berkeley Street, Marylebone W1H 7PP, www.nirvanakitchenlondon.co.uk On the Menu: Nirvana Kitchen is all about pan-Asian, aka the best of both worlds when you want a curry but you also want noodles. Designed for sharing, it’s recommended that you order three starters to share (they’re small), two mains and a few sides, all inspired by Indian, Thai and Far Eastern cuisines. First Impressions: First things first, don’t trust Google Maps… Or the address […]

15 Spots for Feel-Good Dining

With so much focus on eating healthily we often disregard another (huge) element of responsible eating; where our food comes from, how it is prepared and what effect it has on the environment. We’re not suggesting you live on organic hemp and cook in a solar-powered kitchen but with so many great options for ethical, sustainable and socially-aware dining in London, you can take your guilt-free lunch to the next level.

Smith & Wollensky Brunch Review: What We Thought

What? One of London’s top steak restaurants, Smith & Wollensky hopped across the pond a couple of years ago, bringing with it USDA prime beef and pretty epic puddings. They’ve recently expanded into brunch because they (rightly) think that steak is too good to save for later in the day… New? Smith & Wollensky opened in London back in 2015 but only launched their brunch towards the end of last year. We headed along one Sunday to check it out. Where? The Adelphi, 1-11 John Adam Street, Strand, WC2N 6HT, www.smithandwollensky.co.uk On the Menu: Printed on a satisfyingly large and weighty A3 sheet, the brunch […]
