It’s mid-August and suddenly our thoughts are turning to which winter coat we should go for this year and why we can’t even remember what our New Year’s resolutions were, let alone why we haven’t stuck to them. Stop. Rewind time. Ok maybe you’ve gone a bit far but suddenly it’s 1943 and everyone around you is wearing a beret and has a moustache. Welcome to the world of Maman le Mot, a secret immersive supper club experience from event organisers A Place in Time, the people behind The Tick Tack Club, coming to London Bridge this September. The bunker-come-bistro […]
Bringing together meyhane, mangal and seafood from the Bosphorus, Marylebone restaurant, Yosma is going to be a celebration of the social, eating out culture of Istanbul. Opening this summer, the menu will be divided into cold meze, hot starters, mangal, clay oven and sides. There will be classic Istanbul dishes alongside new takes on old favourites. In the cold meze you’ll find the likes of Deniz Börülce – steamed samphire, lemon, garlic and olive oil or choose a hot starter such as Mantı – Turkish dumplings stuffed with lamb neck, yogurt sauce, chilli oil and mint. There’ll be Ahtapot – […]
New? Albion opened its doors in Shoreditch in 2009 and has since opened in three more locations. Albion Clerkenwell is the largest of the restaurants with an even bigger menu. Where? 63 Clerkenwell Road, Clerkenwell, EC1M 5NP www.albion-uk.london On the Menu: This menu is quintessentially British, especially the breakfast menu: beans on toast, hollandaise, porridge, baps, Marmite – you name it. Divided up into sections of how each dish is prepared, choose from hot, on toast, baps, eggs, and my favourite, interlopers, which included avocado and poached eggs on toast or the hangover recovery sandwich. There is also an option to order from The Bakery, an in-house bakery […]
Think of punch and your mind probably casts back to questionable bowls of sickly sweet liquid at house parties’ passed. To name your bar the Punch Room, you can be pretty certain that there’s not a hint of such horror – expertly mixed bowls only.

Kicking off the masterclasses, the expert bartenders from the Punch Room are sharing their knowledge in two, hour and a half long sessions in August. The evening will begin with […]
August in Edinburgh is all about the Fringe. If you can’t make it up north, use it as an opportunity to experience some of London’s best cultural happenings. Save the pre-theatre rush and try out these places for a night consisting of more than just dinner and drinks; comedy, cabaret and live music, London has it all.
Following on from the success of their Soho French bistro, brothers Maxime, Yannis and Malik Alary are back with the second Blanchette and this time it’s opening on Brick Lane. It’ll still feature signature dishes such as crispy frog’s legs, cheese beignets and croquet monsieur but this time, Tam Storrar who is overseeing the menu and taking on the role of Executive Chef across both sites, will draw on Southern French and North African flavours and spices, to bring the likes of lamb tagine with apricots, almonds and rose harissa; roast poussin with tarragon and pommes Sarladaise and wild strawberry […]
In case you haven’t heard, this week is Afternoon Tea Week and seeing as it’s Wednesday already that means you’re two days of scones, clotted cream and cucumber sandwiches behind. Whether you favour starched linen napkins and fine bone china or something a little more exotic, we told your about the best teas to try this week here. But one tea we didn’t mention is not only packed full of history, it’s also very current. Mews of Mayfair are celebrating the great British tradition of afternoon tea inspired by two Great (but not British) legends, Georgie Frideric Handel and Jimi […]
New? It opened in June 2016 with aims to expand next year. Where? 3 Tottenham Street, Fitzrovia, W1T 2AF www.rawligion.co.uk On the menu: The menu is plant-based offering a selection of juices/smoothies and raw dishes, not completely vegan as the venue doesn’t carry the same ethos that goes with a vegan diet – honey is used in some of their raw chocolates for example. First Impressions: It was quiet when we arrived but curiosity and the lure of free juice samples slowly got people in and by the time we left there was a steady stream of people although they seemed more interested in […]
New? The Balans Soho Society Café is the newest edition to the Balans Soho Society chain. Having just opened this summer, it is making quite the impression on the crowds of Seven Dials and Covent Garden.

You can choose from a variety of dishes from pulled duck to seared scallops or red curry to a classic club sandwich. The option to choose between small plates and large plates really comes in handy when you […]
