Where? 10th Floor, Montcalm Royal London House, 22-25 Finsbury Square, Moorgate, EC2A 1DX, www.aviarylondon.com On the Menu: Brunch is more of an all-day affair at Aviary, with a hearty a la carte menu meaning if […]
We love a market. Food market, vintage market, night market – we’re not fussy but there’s just something about taking our shopping outdoors that makes the experience so much better than a soulless, overly air conditioned shop. You get up close and personal with the sellers, who have often made/crafted/sourced their wares themselves and get the amazing opportunity to learn about the origins of what you’re buying in a pretty unbeatable way. A handful of restaurants come close to the market experience, creating their menus around seasonal produce and doing their best to translate this to the customer through informative […]
It’s only very recently that seafood has got the attention it deserves in the capital. Yes Rick Stein has done his bit (he’s bringing A Taste of Cornwall to The Goring this summer) but there’s so much more to it, in fact there is a whole day dedicated to our love of fish and chips (2nd June was National Fish and Chip Day). One of our favourite seafood restaurants, Bonnie Gull, is expanding for the summer season, spreading its wings from Fitzrovia and Soho over to Mayfair’s Duke Street for an exclusive four month pop-up in the iconic raised gardens. […]
