Woman’s Crush Wednesday Club

Motivate Mondays, Transformation Tuesdays, Throwback Thursdays of all of them our favourite has to be Woman Crush Wednesday (well Man Crush Monday is pretty good too), but we’re not just about looking at photos of women on Instagram in their bikinis, although, you know we do do that too. Instead we would rather celebrate inspirational and hardworking women and it seems like so would the JPR Media Group. They run their Woman’s Crush Wednesday Club which sees influencers from fashion, media and business sit down to supper at the World’s End Market in Chelsea, to celebrate a leading woman via […]

Hungry Donkey review

What: Authentic Greek food Where: 56 Wentworth street, London, E1 7ALWhy you should go there: For a taste of proper Greece in LondonFavourite thing we ate: Pitta bread and dips (tzatziki, aubergine dip, houmous) and the Chicken Souvlaki.It’s 7pm and I am sitting on a balcony looking over the Greek Island of Santorini, but only just a week ago did I have the pleasure of being invited to The Hungry Donkey, the brand new Greek restaurant in the heart of the City of London. I’ve always thought that Greek cuisine has been underestimated in the UK and not many have truly experienced the treasures of their little […]

Street Food Afternoon Tea

It seems as if London’s love affair with afternoon tea is still going strong with new themes being launched week and Arch London are declaring their love with the launch of their new tea. Whilst it is being served in the sophisticated Martini Library and Salon de Champagne lounge, the tea is actually taking its inspiration from London’s other food crush, street food. With foods from around the world, Arch London are doing away with traditional scones and sandwiches to spice up our relationship. Instead of scones you’ll find cinnamon and sugar doughnuts filled with apple jam and rather than […]

LOBOS Meat and Tapas Bar Opens

Time for a quick language lesson; lobos is Spanish for wolves and Lobos Meat and Tapas Bar opening next week, is going to be just the sort of place to unleash your inner (or some cases not so hidden) carnivore. Situated under the rail arches next to Borough Market, the 50-cover restaurant will be a cavernous space, with dark wood and metallic finished, it’s the work of MAD (they also worked on Wright Brothers) and will emulate the look of wolf’s cave – we’ll take their word for it, if we’re honest we haven’t hung out there much. The menu […]

Luckily London has an amazing selection of pop-ups – here are eight of the best: ‘Blooming Brilliance’ at The Rib Room Bar & Restaurant What: Botanical-themed bar Where: Jumeirah Carlton Tower, Knightsbridge Why: Thanks to flowers, Britain in the summer looks more than just grey mulch.

Thali review

What: North Indian cuisine Where: 166 Old Brompton Road, London, SW5 0BA Why you should go there: They have a nice space downstairs for private dining Favourite Thing We Ate: Gajar Ka Halwa – a sweet concoction of carrot, almonds, milk and other magic ingredients Thali is a North Indian restaurant (which means no onion bhajis unfortunately) is only a short walk from Beatrix Potter’s old house. They have outdoor seating but as the seats are on the pavement and the view is of the road, unless you are desperate to be outside, it’s nicer to head indoors. The restaurant is long […]
