Bluebird Announces 2nd Restaurant

Bluebird; it’s synonymous with the Kings Road, entertaining those in MiC and being one of London’s iconic restaurants. Last year saw it undergo an extensive refurbishment and emerge with a refreshed menu, but that was 2016 and this is 2017 and in 2017 they are expanding. This winter, there’ll be not one, but two Bluebirds (with the potential for more in the future) as they open up at Television Centre, the former home of the BBC, in White City. The 5000-square foot space will feature a café, bar, deli and outdoor terrace and is part of an £8 billion regeneration […]

Popolo Shoreditch Review: What We Thought

New? Popolo Shoreditch opened its doors in October, before which it came to life as a pop-up in Haggerston. Where? 26 Rivington Street, Shoreditch, EC2A 3DU, www.popoloshoreditch.com On the Menu: Italian, Spanish and North African-inspired small plates make up the menu, with strong pasta dishes hinting at the kitchen’s experience with Theo Randall. First Impressions: Tucked down Rivington Street, a few doors down from The Rivington Grill and Tramshed, Popolo occupies a former takeaway shop. Not that you’d know – it was completely gutted over the summer – now, exposed brick walls and a bar made of scaffolding bring it […]

Create the Menus at Craft London

Quite often, it’s easy to forget the developmental process behind a dish at a restaurant, but excellence isn’t created overnight; it is a long road from start to finish for that perfect dish. Each Tuesday, the kitchen team at Craft will give opportunity to get involved in that process, so you’ll taste dishes that are either still in development or only available in small quantity. Up to eight courses will be served to guests who’ll then be able to engage with the chefs themselves, offering feedback and potentially impacting what will become the final dish! Seasonality is key in Test […]

Camm & Hooper Open Six Storeys on Soho

When Soho Square was first built in the seventeenth century it was home to just nine inhabitants including the Earl of Stamford and Duke of Monmouth – it was also called King’s Square originally, hence the statue of Charles II in the middle of the square. It’s had rather a bohemian, decadent and debauched past and now the next chapter is being written with the opening of Six Storeys on Soho. Taking over all six storeys of 11 Soho Square, this is the fifth venue from Camm & Hooper who also have The Victorian Bath House and Tanner Warehouse to […]

It’s no secret that January is a month we all need dragging out of hibernation. This month’s best pop ups are suitably comforting; there’s everything from a sausage roll competition to a pie pop-up and on Blue Monday (16th January), when things get really dire, a House of Happiness is popping up below Piccadilly so leave your bags at the door, slide on your slippers and enjoy a free massage. There’s things for Baking Bad fans and wannabe Scots (and actual Scots) too. See, January isn’t that bad after all.

Dirty Martini have introduced for the month their ‘Saintly Six’ – six cocktails full of ingredients with health-boosting properties. So yes, you can enjoy a drink whilst reaping the benefits of ingredients like ginger and Matcha […]

Hot Cocktails at The Goring’s Winter Pop-Up Terrace

Christmas Day may be over but that doesn’t mean the festive pop-ups have ended too.
