Bonnie Gull’s Outdoor Kitchen

Today could be going either way for you today. Either you’ve been allowed to work at home because nobody has time to battle with every other Londoner for a space on a bus and you’re revelling in being able to work in your PJs probably sat in your bed or you have just battled every other Londoner to get that space on the bus and now you’re flustered and your default Londoner level of passive aggressiveness has just gone through the roof.   Well forget all of that because Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack on Foley Street is here to inject a […]

Voga at Coq d’Argent Review – What We Thought

It was chucking it down with rain, it felt like the midst of winter and yet still about 20 girls made it to Coq d’Argent for their monthly Voga sessions and I was one of them. Yes I had hauled myself out of bed on a Sunday morning, battled the elements and the Sunday district line to reach the city in time for our morning exercise class. Everyone was surprisingly chipper, we were in various degrees of lycra, looking like a Sweaty Betty shop had arrived, ready to pose, dance and strike our way to fitness. I thought I looked […]

Gelupo Team Open Vico

Jacob Kenedy and Victor Hugo the guys behind Bocca di Lupo and Gelupo are set to open Vico, an Italian restaurant later this month in Seven Dials. We say restaurant, but the focus here is on all things casual. They’ve gone for the Italian piazza look, so they’ll be minimal seating, carnival lighting and a playful design; it’s said to be surprising but they won’t let us in on any more details than that at the moment.  In fact it’s so casual that cutlery is frowned upon, eating with your hands will finally be acceptable and there is hardly going […]

Tea at the National Theatre

Stop what you’re doing, because we have some news that is going to brighten any Monday morning, next week is National Afternoon Tea Week and this Wednesday is the start of the Great British Bake Off …it’s like they planned it. So what this means for you is that you legitimately have no excuse not to eat cake (it’s a hard life) and if you really want to celebrate then you should of course have afternoon tea. The National Theatre have recently launched a new tea that celebrates their most love shows. Things begin with a curtains up bellini, before two […]

Super food Ice Lollies at Ethos

The sun might not be shining, but is that going to stop us eating ice lollies? No it is not. If anything we need to eat more to encourage the sun to shine (clearly this is how the weather works) especially when they’re the new ice-lollies from vegan and vegetarian restaurant Ethos, because they’re healthy and we all know the importance of health. The vegan lollies are made from coconut or almond milk and use fruit, seeds and natural sweetners. Flavours include mango and chia which is full of anti-oxidants and vitamin C, plus if you eat one whilst listening […]

Molé Boutique Mexican Opens

You may or may not know but this year is the dual year between Mexico and England, and whilst our governments might be working together more closely what we’re most excited for is what this means for Mexican food in London. Just as well then that this week sees the opening of Molé a boutique Mexican restaurant and bar in Marylebone from the team behind pan-Asian restaurant Cocochan. They’re going to be serving up South American classics but this is 2015 which means they aren’t any old tacos oh no, they’re giving the comfort food a twist and making 80% […]

Scents of Summer Tea Review – What We Thought

Remember when we told you about InterContinental Park Lane’s Scents of Summer afternoon tea? Where they joined with Floris to create a floral tea that captured the essence of an English summer garden? Bringing together cakes and Floris’ key summer notes?  Quite considerate really given that the chances are of smelling fresh air and flowers in London during the summer is close to none. Well we decided that we’d go down and check it out for you -who’s being considerate now? The tea is served in the Wellington Lounge which has the same refinement and sophistication as a good English […]

Breakfast at Crab Tavern

Anyone who knows anything about food will tell you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day…and also the most underrated. It gets the least press out of all the meals, after being repeatedly dismissed as just cereal and toast. The Americans get the important of treating all meals as equals especially over at Crab Tavern, a New York style restaurant specialising in seafood (but not at breakfast, don’t worry). Now whilst seafood may not feature heavily in the morning menu it does offer more classic treats like the Bacon Sarnie, Pancakes with fruit and syrup, the Full […]
