M Restaurant review – what we thought

Like Madonna we are always on board with a reinvention and another iconic M, M Restaurant agrees as they have just launched their new summer RAW menu with lighter treats to keep you going in the hot months. Taking inspiration from 6 countries including Japan and Australia, the emphasis here is on meat and fish even on the RAW side of the restaurant. M Restaurant is a fantastic venue space, balancing a relaxed atmosphere with an up market vibe well. Split into the Grill dining area on the left and Raw on the right, the upstairs hosts the cocktail bar, […]

Jago Review – What We Thought

The other day finding ourselves on the hunt for supper in the Commercial Street area we decided not to be lured into the curry houses with promises of more than we could eat and drink for a mere fiver (not a good look on a Tuesday) and instead we wandered up Hanbury Street to Jago. Jago is the work of Louis Solley (former head chef at Ottolenghi), Hugo Thurston and Vinny Burke and is said to be bringing a taste of the Ashkenazi Jewish cuisine back to London with Middle Eastern and Mediterranean influences. Of course East London still has […]

Can you?  What we do know though is that London is definitely not short of jazz bars where you can get your musical fix and here are 5 of our favourites.

The historical Courthouse Hotel is on the same brainwave as us as they have announced their new Soho Ski Terrace (formerly the Soho Sky Terrace) will launch in October in their summer rooftop space. The theme will be iconic retro ski chalets of the 1950’s filled with snuggly blankets and plush furniture to keep the winter chills at bay whilst soaking up the skyline view […]
