The Mandeville Review – What We Thought

You might remember that earlier this year we told you about the Riviera coming to Marylebone in the form of Christian Lacroix taking over the fifth floor of The Mandeville hotel. Four rooms each telling a different story, drawing on inspiration from the ladies who graced Jean Cocteau’s famous Santo Sospir villa and the likes of Grace Kelly’s classic film ‘To Catch a Thief’. Each room is completely unique but all use the finest fabrics and wallpapers from Christian Lacroix (under the creative direction of Sacha Walckhoff) collaboration with the Designers Guild. New? Relatively – the Christian Lacroix takeover of the […]

Sartoria’s New Capri-Inspired Terrace

The days are beginning to warm up and the sun is finally starting to peer through the clouds right about the time summer’s end is looming eerily ahead, so it is only natural to want to spend every second of our rare but much-loved steamy summer days outdoors. Perhaps even take a small getaway from the fast-paced and strenuous lifestyle customary of us city dwellers and sip on an Aperol spritz on the coast of somewhere far away. Well don’t book your plane tickets just yet, as Italian ristorante Sartoria is taking advantage of the delectable sunshine and is bringing all of this and more right […]

Gaucho Private Dining Review: What We Thought

New? Gaucho was founded in 1976 with the original restaurant in Amsterdam. The first UK restaurant was opened on Swallow Street (Piccadilly) in 1994 and, fast forward a few years, there are now 14 UK sites, including Manchester and Leeds as well as restaurants in Dubai, Hong Kong and Buenos Aires. Where? 60A Charlotte Street, Fitzrovia, W1T 2NU www.gauchorestaurants.com for bookings elli.sallis@gauchorestaurants.com On the Menu: Steak and red wine. Organic Argentinian Aberdeen-Angus steak to be precise, cooked on an open flame for the most authentic taste and sourced from the fertile grasslands of the Pampas. Impressively, the wine collection is not only exclusively Argentinian – all but 10 bottles […]

Morning Glory Brunch at 100 Wardour St.

Some things just go together: tea and biscuits, wine and cheese, brunch and Sundays. Brunch is one of those small pleasures in life that allows the fun from the weekend to continue. Otherwise, Sunday would just be pre-Monday, and weekends are short enough as it is. As July comes to a close this weekend, Soho’s 100 Wardour St. Restaurant & Club will be hosting their first LGBT brunch cheekily named Morning Glory, in association with the Terrence Higgins Trust to raise awareness of HIV and AIDs. Expect a brunch which is fuelled by Prosecco, dancing and delicious food – well who said Sundays […]

The Middle: Tom Ellis at the Wallace Collection

Perhaps one of the most difficult things about living in such a dynamic and historic city as London is that too often we forget to appreciate the opportunities we have every day to experience London at its best. Tourists flock from all over the world just to get a taste of what we have at our fingertips, but we instead rush home from work and opt out of weekend adventures to sleep in and watch the next episode of Orange is the New Black. How many of us have actually seen the changing of the guards or spent an afternoon at Trafalgar Square? […]

Top 6 Tasting Menus in London

London’s eating habits are changing. Facing attacks from tapas, sharing plates and street food, the traditional three-course meal is on the retreat. Fortunately, there’s a much more satisfying way to keep all those courses: the tasting menu. Forget about agonising over whether to go for your favourite dish or a gamble on a wildcard – a tasting menu brings you the restaurant’s best dishes without you having to decide. And, if nothing else, a tasting menu is the only time when eating ten courses is totally acceptable. Here are our very favourite tasting menus.

Maze Sushi Review – What We Thought

New? Part of the Gordon Ramsay empire, maze turns 10 this year but has recently added Sunday Sushi Sessions to its offerings to entice customers in and away from the standard Sunday brunch. Where? 10-13 Grosvenor Square, Mayfair, W1K 6JP, www.gordonramsayrestaurants.com/maze First Impressions: In a prime position on Grosvenor Square, the grand staired entrance lets you know this isn’t your standard sushi joint. Maze sits round to the left whilst, to the right, Maze Grill serves up a mean steak – Gordon is his own competition. On the Menu: European dining with ‘an Asian flourish’ is how maze describes itself. Sushi […]

Farmopolis: Putting the Green in Greenwich

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show, a key date in London’s horticultural and social calendar, but have you ever wondered what happens to all the flowers after? Are they planted somewhere else? Or are they left to wither, each petal dropping off, one by one…a little flower graveyard? Well banish that thought because launching this weekend on the Jetty at Greenwich Peninsula is Farmopolis, a floating garden which has saved and rehomed tens of thousands of plants from the flower show. Created by Secret Productions (the co-founders of Wilderness Festival) and Wayward (the UK’s leading art-design-farm practice), the new garden will […]
