Chit Chaat Chai Opens in Wandsworth Town

Wandsworth Town is home to The Handbook HQ, England rugby players, yummy mummies, brilliant coffee and now the arrival of two new restaurants: Meatup, a bbq restaurant opening in June, and Chit Chaat Chai – an Indian street food restaurant which arrives today. The story starts with founders, Tania and Dhruv, not being able to find a good Bhel Poori. They wanted Indian food full of flavour and texture, the sort only found on a stall on the street – chaat. So, taking things into their own hands, they trawled the shops for the best ingredients, trialling out dishes on their […]

Map Maison: Late Night Drinks in Haggerston

For the past eleven years, Joseph Arowolo has been running the bars at Sketch but now he has left Mayfair and headed east to open MAP Maison, a new cocktail bar in Haggerston. The bar will see a slice of Mayfair glitz brought to the Kingsland Road, with the aim to give their guests their own private cocktail bar – and how will they do that? With the introduction of personalised liquor lockers for MAP members. Which means if you’re a member, you’ll hold the key and then if you buy a bottle you can drink it over time rather […]

The Royal Oak Paley Street Review – What We Thought

With the double dose of Bank Holiday weekends in May it’s the perfect opportunity to escape the city for a day and swap your usual Sunday pub lunch with somewhere a little more scenic. The Royal Oak Paley Street is just a 30-minute drive from London, in the village of Bray near Maidenhead, only a few hundred metres off the M4. New? The 17th century pub is anything but new but a relatively new lease of life comes in the form of ownership by Nick Parkinson and his father, Sir Michael as well as a well-deserved Michelin star (awarded in […]

Voltaire Review – What We Thought

New? Not at all – Voltaire opened as a part of the Crowne Plaza London hotel back in 2003. It was, however, refurbished in 2013 following the discovery of the vaults. Where? 19 New Bridge Street, City of London, EC4V 6DB www.voltairebar.com First Impressions: Given the need to walk off the bustling streets and down a narrow, metal staircase, you could be forgiven for wandering straight past the entrance to Voltaire. Once inside, however, it’s a whole new story. The bar exudes a sense of luxury and class. The waiting staff were friendly and swift in their delivery of food, […]

Awesome Afternoon Teas

Absolute Anarch-Tea

The year is 1976, and times, well, they are a’changing. Concorde has taken to the skies for the very first time, Steve Jobs has formed the Apple Computer Company and no one is aware of the tidal wave of technology that will storm into their lives for the next four decades. Riots have broken out at Notting Hill Carnival (what year did I say we were in again?) and Punk is spreading like a viral contagion across the city of London…  It’s time to don your ultimate studded leather jacket, blast those punk rock vinyls loud and proud on your […]

Farmacy: Healthy by Nature

We’ve had Pharmacy 2 and Farmer J but now it’s the turn of the similarly agriculturally-titled Farmacy to open in Notting Hill at the end of April. Combining an exclusively plant-based menu with medicinally beneficial cocktails, Farmacy’s name starts to make sense. Camilla Al Fayed – Chairman of fashion label Issa London and daughter of former Harrods-owner Mohammed Al Fayed – is behind Farmacy, her input apparent in what will be a place to see and be seen by fashionable and healthy West Londoners. Working with Head Chef, Joao Ricardo Alves, the team have created a menu with huge nutritional […]
