Estiatorio Milos London Launches

It can’t be denied that there is a lot going on in Greece right now. But with all the negative attention in the press, it seems that everyone has forgotten the most important thing about the sunny aisle…its brilliant and tasty food! Thankfully, Costas Spiliadis is here to remind us all why we love Grecian cuisine, with the launch of Estiatorio Milos in London this month! This acclaimed seafood restaurant with Greek heritage, will be its sixth location since Chef and owner Costas Spiliadis opened his doors in Montreal, way back in 1979. His aim was to elevate the perception […]

Bentley’s review – what we thought

What: Top seafood in a classic English setting Where: 11-15 Swallow Street, Mayfair W1B 4DG Why you should go there: To experience a nod to a time when dining out really was a luxury Favourite thing we ate: Bread and Butter Pudding and the lobster Opened since 1916, Bentley’s is a staple of fine English dining and a must do if you are eating out in London, taken over in 2015 by regaled chef Richard Corrigan, it oozes classic English style. Upon nearing the outside terrace I was instantly struck by the waiters and doormen’s impeccable smartness and understated charm which is likely to […]

Dinner In The Sky

A few decades ago, Hollywood science fiction films predicted what millennial life would look like…hover boards, self-tying laces and shiny silver jumpsuits were just some of the predictions made. We all like to look back and laugh at these films, until you realise that some of the predictions weren’t that far off. Just look at that floating restaurant suspended mid-air over London…yep, we’re not lying. London in the Sky returns to London this September, with a brand new location and chef line up. Now located by the iconic vistas around Tower Bridge, the restaurant is suspended 25 metres from the […]

Brunch on a Rooftop

A weekend without brunch surely isn’t a weekend at all. It’s the only reason we’ll get up when we’re hungover, the light at the end of the tunnel when we’re cycling the stresses of the week out in our 9am spin class and the only way to set us up for a day in London. Joining the brunch scene is the Radio Rooftop Bar at ME London, brunch on a rooftop, yes please sign us up now. Sink back, soak up London’s iconic skyline and sip on Bloody Mary cocktails. They have a DIY Blood Mary station with over 30 […]

Carom Spice Garden

Ever since that iconic (read: cheesy) girl band, whose name escapes us, sang ‘spice up your life!’ we’ve had a love affair with all things sugar and spice. Our love for all things hot can now be indulged, thanks to the new London pop-up, Carom’s Spice Garden this July. Pan-Indian restaurant and Soho institution, Carom, moves to Butlers Wharf along the Thames for their second summer pop-up. Following a successful six week rooftop residency at Madison Bar & Restaurant in the City, Carom is now re-locating Thameside and partnering with Butlers Wharf Chop House to host an Indian ‘Spice Garden’ […]

Crab Tavern Opens

I believe it was the great 20th century aquatic American philosopher Sebastian the crab who noted that ‘darling it’s better, down where it’s wetter, take it from me.’ Sebastian sure was right, as seafood is up there with some of the tastiest nosh this great planet has to offer us. He probably wasn’t talking about how tasty crab is, as I’m pretty sure cannibalism is frowned upon in the underwater kingdom, but sorry Sebastian, you guys are pretty damn tasty. Luckily for us, Crab Tavern which has just opened in Broadgate Circle, is here to offer us plenty of great […]

A Londoner’s Guide to Malta

The Handbook’s first love will always be London, but every so often we venture slightly further afield and recently we found ourselves in Malta.  The beautiful archipelago (that’s a group of islands) is situated between Sicily and North Africa meaning that it has warm Mediterranean seas, a dry climate and soaring temperatures. Steeped in history, with the Romans, French, Arabs and English all leaving their mark on the small island, Malta is a smorgasbord of culture, not unlike London, just with an added beautiful coast. With boutique hotels on the rise and an abundant food scene, we’ve rounded up some […]

Lundenwic at Covent Garden

When you’re in university, and are up all night trying to finish an essay, coffee is introduced in to your life. Now, years later, it’s pretty much a permanent morning fixture. Luckily enough, we are hardly in short supply of coffee shops in London, but sometimes it’s nice to forgo the big chains and enjoy some speciality coffees from smaller businesses….you know, stick it to the man and all that. Located in Convent Garden, Lundenwic is a new food and speciality coffee shop, set to open at the end of July. The shop is named after one of the original […]
