Wake Up Fashionably Well With Sanderson

It’s time to up our breakfast game. No matter how many articles we read and healthy recipe books we flick through we never actually get round to making a batch of that healthy granola we’ve bookmarked so, more often than not, resort to a boring bowl of porridge at our desk each morning. Not to say we’re unhealthy, but sometimes life gets in the way of all our quinoa, spirulina and matcha dreams – this is where Sanderson step in. Undoubtedly one of London’s most stylish hotels, Sanderson has recruited the expertise of Danielle Copperman, health blogger, model and name […]

A couple of weeks ago, The Handbook jetted off to Ibiza for a forty-eight-hour trip, to dance, feast, sunbathe and definitely not sleep. When time isn’t on your side, you want to make sure you choose wisely when it comes to eating out, so luckily JPR Media, gave us the heads up that we had to try out STK Ibiza, which has seen everyone from Tinie Tempah to Nicole Scherzinger through its doors and now The Handbook. New? Following restaurants in NYC, Miami, LA and London, STK Ibiza opened back in July of this year. Where? You’ll find the restaurant […]

50% off at Bluebird

You might have noticed something different this summer at the Kings Road favourite, Bluebird. Whilst the courtyard was still packed with Chelsea residents sipping on rosé and the café was still bustling with brunches, the first floor restaurant was rather quiet. That’s because since the 1st August it has been shut for an extensive redesign, the wait is almost over and it’s soon reopen with a rather wonderful 50% off the menu to mark the occasion! Re-imagined and designed by Sagrada (the designers of Sartoria and The Arts Club), the restaurant will give a nod to its engineering heritage and […]

Benihana Piccadilly review – what we thought

New? Originating in Hong Kong, Benihana Piccadilly opened in 1994, they have another venue in Chelsea. Where? 37 Sackville Street, Piccadilly W1S 3EH www.benihana.co.uk On the Menu: A selection of meat and seafood cooked on a hibachi – a small BBQ that looks like a huge hot plate, with charcoals burning underneath to give it its heat. The menu also features popular Japanese dishes such as sushi, sashimi and bento boxes at lunch. First Impressions: It was quiet when we arrived but we didn’t have to wait for very long for the table we were seated at to fill out – at Benihana, it’s […]

The Frog Review – What We Thought

New? Fresh from his (very successful) stint at St. Ermin’s hotel, Adam Handling finally opened his first restaurant at the start of June, named The Frog as it is his first leap into solo restauranting. Where? 2 Ely’s Yard, Old Truman Brewery, Hanbury Street, Spitalfields, E1 6QR, www.thefrogrestaurant.com  First Impressions: After getting slightly lost in the streets around Old Truman Brewery, we found The Frog unassumingly nestled in one corner of Ely’s Yard.

The Hanging Gardens of Kyoto High Above Regent Street

Think of Japan and one of the first things that springs to mind is probably the cherry blossom and maple trees that flood the landscape with colour each year, that is after your thoughts have turned to sushi, weird gadgets, Harajuku and Hello Kitty everything. Take your botanical mind frame one step further and somehow you’ll end up with aqua kyoto’s new installation, the Hanging Gardens of Kyoto, a traditional Japanese garden that has been created throughout the bar, restaurant and terrace of the West End venue. Award-winning London florists Rebel Rebel (read our interview with them here) have taken […]
