There’s not many things we Londoners love more than food, new places to eat, and talented chefs with shiny new menus – that’s exactly what Chefs of Tomorrow is promising. Started in 2015, Chefs of Tomorrow was Dan Doherty’s (of London favourite Duck and Waffle) idea to find a way for young chefs to grow, develop and connect with each other and others in the industry. He has since teamed up with writer Anna Sulan Masing and Emily Underwood (of Burnt Truffle) for a collaboration entitled the TMRW project. At its foundation, the project’s basis is the Chefs of Tomorrow, which is […]
Sure New York has Katz’s and LA has Langer’s but London has Monty’s Deli and in April it’s going to get its first permanent site and we.can’t.wait. If you haven’t head of Monty’s, 1) shame on you 2) let’s bring you up to speed. Back in 2012 Monty’s began life as a market stall with the pastrami smoked in founder Mark Ogus’ backyard. Joining forces with Owen Barratt, they gained a loyal following – mainly because their sandwiches are just the best. Piled high with hand carved towers of their home-made signature salt beef and pastrami, it’s the sandwich you […]
Thick cut steaks, burgers and smoked racks of ribs, no this is not an advert for M&S, but a public service announcement: Meatopia UK is back. The event, scheduled for September 2017, sees the return of Meatopia to London’s Tobacco Dock to host a legendary line-up of chefs from around the world.

Brunch: possibly our favourite meal ever. Great for all occasions, from boozy gatherings to a hearty meal after a particularly heavy night, we’re sure you’ll agree everything is better with a side of fluffy pancakes and eggs benny. Right? Wrong. Three Michelin-starred chef Eneko Atxa has forgone all these brunch staples to create an entirely new menu at Eneko at One Aldwych, bringing a taste of the Basque-country to Covent Garden. Eneko at One Aldwych offers a variety of culinary styles, from Euskal Azoka (street food), to Txoko (classics) and Asador (grill). Txistorra, a spiced Basque sausage cooked in cider with soft corn talo, and street […]
The first weekend of February means our wallets are full and we want our glasses to be too. Not to mention our stomachs, that pretty much goes without saying… Good job then that this weekend sees a couple of new brunches, a new Thai street food restaurant opening, and for all the night owls out there, the Super Bowl – aka the biggest sporting event in the USA. Celebrate accordingly with hot dogs, foam hands and the big game on a big screen. Friday: we’re ready for you.
What do you know we’ve made it to February! We’ve already lived through a whole month of 2017 and quite the month it was, but let’s look ahead because this month will see the opening of the Rail House Café at Nova Victoria. Part of the Village London Central restaurant group (Riding House Café and Village East), the huge 330-cover restaurant will feature an upstairs bar, raised private dining room and outdoor area for 90 – admittedly that sounds unappealing given the state of the weather, but just keep looking ahead to summer when you’ll be inviting everyone to join […]
