They’re the fare of festivals, street feasts and often over-priced and a little mediocre in the centre of capital, thing is they’re just so darn delicious -the humble crêpe. Well now you’ll be able to eat crêpes and galettes in the centre of London and not just from the street side, as Mamie’s opens this month. Founded by Aymeric Peurois, who realised that Londoners need to do away with sorry excuses of crêpes and try the real deal, Mamie’s will be serving up authentic crêpes across all three floors of its Covent Garden setting. If time isn’t on your side […]
If there’s one thing all Brits love to do – it’s drink. Whether that be a gin and tonic in the middle of a cramped club floor or a spot of tea on Sunday afternoon, it’s undeniable that our weekends (and admit it, weekdays) are brimming with liquid delights. And thanks to London’s most beloved flatmates at The Little Yellow Door, we don’t have to decide whether we want to revel in one love versus the other. The friends will be throwing open their yellow door on Saturday afternoons to host a Notting Hill cocktail tea party, complete with quirky alcohol infused pots of […]
One of the most distinct characteristics of London is the mingling of modern components with cherished historic landmarks. Every street and building has a story, and while we may not be aware of each one, that does not discredit the role each structure has played in London’s illustrious past. Hatchetts cherishes the historical impact its namesake has made, and seems to pay homage to its deep history at every corner of the two-story establishment. Hatchetts was originally a hotel and coffee house in Piccadilly that dates back to Dickens. The cellar bar beneath the hotel was once a waiting room for weary travelers en route […]
You’d be forgiven for thinking that new restaurant Bronte was named after one of the sisters, but no this isn’t some London homage to Heathcliff, rather it takes its name from Lord Nelson, who stands only a stone’s throw away in Trafalgar Square. He was of course also known as the 1st Duke of Bronte and it’s his naval career that provides inspiration for the restaurant opening on 1-3 Strand. Executive Chef Andrew Lassetter and Head Chef Jonathan Villar have created a global menu that has Pacific and Antipodean influences with mains including rare breed beef burger with chilli miso […]
Often one of the best things about a business is its story. Take Backyard Cinema, for example. The spectacular series of music and film screenings first started as a homemade project in a backyard garden and has grown into one of London’s most recognised cinema experiences and now Backyard Cinema is returning to the cobbled streets of Camden this August for a fourth year. So grab a bean bag and your favourite craft beer and prepare yourself for an extra special cinema experience, with the perfect combination of hard-hitting biographies, live concerts and featured films. Of course not being an ordinary cinema, they’re not […]
It’s time to look to the heavens and thank the food lords, or in this case, Darwin, which is 36 floors up in the sky (Sky Garden to be precise), as yet more delicious Freakshakes have hit the menus of London. This time appearing on Darwin’s new brunch menu alongside bottomless bloody Marys and Prosecco, will be the increasingly popular Freakshakes in three new flavours. The Freak Dough is a moreish shake of salted caramel with a whole doughnut perched on the rim in case you were craving that extra sugar kick; Freakin’ Macaroons, is a tropical mix of coconut […]
Long gone are the days of gimmicky sombreros and rainbow ponchos tacked onto the walls, as sophisticated, modern Mexican restaurants are beginning to make their welcome debuts into the London foodie scene. A far cry from the typical ‘Tex-Mex’ cuisine, refined Mexican menus, such as the one at new restaurant Peyotito, are transforming the way the capital views Mexican food in the most positive of ways. And thankfully, tequila is still a staple. Peyotito is launching as a local stalwart in the heart of Notting Hill situated in a light, intimate and casual surrounding… You’ll find it by the neon […]
