Le Bun at Le Zetter

Bon appétit, excusez-moi, faux pas… We are all guilty of embedding phrases en français into our dialect now and again to make us sound a little bit chic and now The Zetter Hotel are getting in on the action, becoming Le Zetter for five weeks only. Pourquoi, you may ask? Well, street food burger favourites Le Bun have got themselves a slightly more permanent home and a five month residency at The Zetter in Clerkenwell. Le Bun are adding a touch of neon to the eclectic interiors of the quirky boutique hotel. Vintage televisions and video players will be artfully […]

Hakkasan Review – What We Thought

We all know the poem ‘in the dark dark house’ well here is my version – ready for this? On the dark, dark (Hanway) street, was a dark, dark (Hanway) place and in the dark, dark place was a dark, dark corner and in that corner was a dark, dark restaurant, Hakkasan. Ok so it might not roll off the tongue quite as well, but that poem always springs to mind when I visit Catonese restaurant Hakkasan in Hanway Place. Turning off the bustling Oxford Street, Hanway Place is eerily quiet and slightly foreboding and tucked away in the corner […]

Plus, they all do this while looking as if they are drinking, thanks to technological advancements in what are known as non-alcoholic cocktails. If you want to get in on this sorcery, or you’re a teetotaller already, check out The Handbook’s guide to 5 of the best bars for virgin cocktails.

Deliveroo is probably the best thing that’s happened to London in the past 2 years. Along with Uber. But Deliveroo involves food so maybe it wins.

Bonfire weekend is the perfect time to enjoy comfort food and booze al-autumn-fresco before winter really hits and the thought of being outside for long periods of time isn’t that enjoyable. The Urban Food Fest will have stalls from a whole host of street food brands bringing their classics as well as some specially created dishes […]

Le Restaurant de PAUL review – what we thought

Throughout my life any day where I spied a PAUL’s Bakery and managed to pop in to grab a bite was a good day, so imagine my glee when I found out they had opened a restaurant in Covent Garden. A full blown restaurant serving not only delicious small bites, like quiches with melt in your mouth pastry and a selection of cakes that would make Parisians themselves proud, but full blown meals and more importantly – alcohol. Expanding their empire evermore, PAUL’s Bakery has recently launched Le Restaurant de Paul at ground level of Tower 42 and The Handbook […]
