Cafe Murano Review – What We Thought

New? The second Cafe Murano, the Covent Garden restaurant opened in June 2015 following the popularity of Angela Hartnett’s Cafe Murano St James’s, although it’s still worlds apart from the surrounding pre-theatre-esque restaurants you’d find permanent features on coupon.com and the like. Where? 36 Tavistock Street, Covent Garden, WC2E 7PB www.cafemurano.co.uk On the menu: Cafe Murano showcases the best of Angela Hartnett’s Italian approach to cooking. Known for her passion for seasonal ingredients and ‘simple yet sophisticated’ approach, the menu changes regularly and is split into cichetti, antipasti, primi, secondi, contorni and dolce. A pre-theatre menu respectfully nods at the restaurant’s location, although […]

Wallpaper* Bar & Kitchen at Harvey Nichols Review – What We Thought

New? Yes, it opened just last month. Where? Project 109, Lower Ground Floor, Harvey Nichols, 109 Knightsbridge, SW1X 7RJ www.harveynichols.com First Impressions: After initially heading up to the fifth floor and being redirected back down through rails of expensive leather, artfully ripped denim and bold footwear, we found the bar to the back of the basement. Surprisingly quiet for a Friday evening, it must be more popular during the day but we were given free reign of where to sit so chose a leather banquette, tucked around the corner. Had it been busier, this would be a prime spot for people watching. The Look: A […]

Covent Garden’s Friday Drinks Market

If there’s one thing a great amount of Londoners have in common, it’s the love of a drink. After work the bars and pubs are bustling with tired tourists after a long day wandering around and worn out workers looking to blow off a little steam. In a city with such a vibrant culture of micro-breweries and small-batch distilleries there’s a plethora of options available, each better than the last. The down side? So much choice means trying them all is next to impossible – you’d head to one pub for a craft beer and a completely different bar for […]

What To Do This Weekend: 24th-26th June

The weekend is almost upon us… and whilst it is rather dreary and wet, if you’re staying in London at least you aren’t battling the traffic, mud and crowds at Glastonbury. Instead, we’ll be drinking Ab Fab cocktails, eating all the gelato at the Gelato Festival, catching some rooftop comedy and watching Pride! If you want to catch live music then keep things a little closer to home and head to Fold Festival at Fulham Palace to see the legendary Nile Rodgers!

Last week we gave our first review of Down Hall Hotel, here is what we thought of the restaurant: The Grill Room: Where? The 2 AA Rosette awarded restaurant, The Grill Room, is situated in the Down Hall Hotel which is on the Essex/Hertfordshire border. Down Hall, Country House Hotel, Matching Road, Hatfield Heath,Essex CM22 7AS www.downhall.co.uk First Impressions: Although busy, the restaurant was quite quiet, the main noise happened to be coming from the thud of the wedding party next door. As we sat down other guests looked at us and gave us a nod every time there was a drunken screech, the […]

Balans Soho Society Opens in Covent Garden

Sometimes too much of a good thing is a good thing. Sometimes to not have a plan at all other than the pursuit of pleasure is just what you need.  Sometimes you just need to leave your job at the door, you need to say goodbye to the killjoys and indulge. Balans Soho Society certainly think so. Bringing their love of a good time and moral boosting cocktails to Covent Garden they’ve just opened a 60-cover café in Seven Dials. Open all-day they’re serving up breakfast, brunch, lunch, supper and late-night dining, whilst the curious interior comes from Simon Costin […]

Immersive Wine Tasting at The Hoxton

When it comes to wine, we all have a go-to bottle we grab from the supermarket after work because, after all, if you like what you’re drinking that’s all that matters. Until… it’s not just you, your sofa and your Netflix – suddenly your in-laws are sitting across the table from you and your usual “that’ll do” attitude becomes a little less appropriate. New online wine store, Garmence Wine Studio have revolutionised the wine shopping experience by whittling the choice down to a concise curation of red, white, rose and sparkling, delivering in chic packaging complete with food pairing advice […]
