London’s Healthiest Restaurant Opens

Good Life Eatery: it’s the thing that clean-eating, healthy-living, Instagram- taking dreams are made of and following on from the success of the first Chelsea branch, the team are back with the second café opening in Marylebone. Created by Yasmine Larizadeh and Shirin Kouros, Good Life Eatery is all about fast, casual and healthy dining – it’s the sort of place where you can gorge yourself silly and still walk out guilt-free (although when it comes to food we all know that you should never really feel guilty). It’s the sort of place where you could probably inhale your five […]

Everything’s Changing in Paradise

West London gastropub, Paradise, has appointed Cat Ashton as its new Head Chef to mark the beginning of spring. Ashton was previously Head Chef at Petersham Nurseries, so you know the pub is in good hands. A new chef is not the restaurant’s only recent change, as they have recently debuted a newly refurbished dining room, with garden and front bar on the ground floor, alongside a first floor private dining room and conservatory. This makes it perfect for the hot summer nights, drinking away pretending that it isn’t only Wednesday and you don’t have to get up at 6 […]

Joe’s Southern Kitchen Review

Joe’s Southern Kitchen has just extended its Creole inspired food from Covent Garden to a new venue location in Kentish Town, North London. It seems like an unusual area choice as on first appearance it comes across quite derelict, although it has been described as an up and coming town so maybe not all hope is lost. Once inside Joe’s though it’s a totally different story with the brand spanking new décor taking its inspiration from the deep south of the US with red leather booths, a wooden bar and exposed bricks. There are not enough restaurants like this in […]

Experiences & Pop-Ups

The Innocent Smoothie Festival

Come the second Bank Holiday weekend in May we’ll be hitting innocent unplugged, a free, off-grid festival in a secret magical forest location free from, gulp, social media and WiFi. Heck there isn’t even any traditional electricity. But don’t worry, a silent festival wouldn’t be much fun so all power will be generated by solar power or people power (pedals to giant hamster wheels in case you’re wondering). Expect great music from headline acts such as The Correspondents and Norman Jay, lycra-legged dance-offs with old school classic Mr. Motivator, inspiring speakers like Kids Company founder Camila Batmanghelidjh, Liberty London Girl […]

Turn Up The Heat With The London Capital Club

We, at The Handbook, love a bit of spice in our lives no matter what form it comes in. We loved posh spice back in the nineties and we loved chinese five spice back in the noughties – which turned our suppers from zero to hero. But now that we are a more sophisticated bunch of babes we have a new kind of spice to get all hot and bothered about. London Capital Club is popping the cap on their latest series of pops ups which are running from the 27th April – 27th July at The Walbrook Grill. Internatinoally […]

Ambam hits London!

If you’ve had enough of Facebook, have never used Google+ (because let’s be honest, who has?) and feel like Instagram is no longer fulfilling your foodie needs, then we have a great new social media for you to try! Ambam is the first ever social network exclusively for London dwellers and its aim is to connect folk across the land of London through their common interests (other than Game of Thrones) and also give them some cool rewards along the way. Personally, we never say no to a freebie, however,  Ambam’s treats look far cooler than a personalised rubber stamp […]
