Le Chateaubriand launches Le Chabanais

Denizens of Mayfair’s Mount Street will soon have a brand new Gallic haunt; March will see the launch of Le Chabanais, from the team behind France’s celebrated restaurant, Le Chateaubriand ranked No.27 in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants. Taking its name from an infamous Belle Époque absinthe den  (that’s a brothel if you were in any doubt), the new venue has been conceived together with film producer Varun Talreja, Le Chateaubriand’s self- taught Basque chef owner Inaki Aizpitarte (responsible for spearheading France’s recent ‘bistronomy’ movement – that’s affordable haute cuisine to you and me) and his partners Franck Audoux and Laurent […]

Everyone loves a fittie

Let’s be honest, apart from when you get to go home lunch time is the highlight of the office day.

A new Joint in town

Back in August 2012 Daniel Fiteni and Warren Dean set up a pop-up in Brixton Village Market, The Joint, serving up a whole load of pulled pork (they’re experts on the stuff), slaw and spicy wings – they were among London’s pioneers for American BBQ scene. Fast forward to 2015 and they’ve just launched their second branch in Marylebone. Situated on New Cavendish Street, the restaurant is kept simple with festoon lighting, long refectory tables, wooden benches, bare walls and industrial metal work – even the food was served on paper plates.
