The Handbook Meets…Michael Riemenschneider

You know your restaurant is a success when you have to relocate to a bigger venue to meet demand, just as Michael Riemenschneider had to when his restaurant Canvas outgrew its Marylebone home and headed to Chelsea. We caught up with the Swiss-born chef to talk about family recipes, desert island dishes and working with Heston Blumenthal.  Tell us about the ‘Design your own menu’? Essentially we are offering the most personalised, modern menu, it’s an a la carte tasting menu so you can choose your number of courses from one course up to twenty one and we scale them […]

Wild and Foraged Menu at Paramount

Yes it might be on the 32nd floor on arguably one of London’s busiest roads, but Paramount is putting its urban setting to one side and focusing on all things rural with their Foraged and Wild menu, which is available until the 24th November. It’s four courses of seasonal produce all sourced from our fair island and the ingredients are pretty impressive. We headed up there the other day, to sample it, but before we talk about the food, a special mention has to go the exceptional service, they were quick, friendly, knowledgeable and funny and service really can make […]

Aqua Shard Brunch

Chances are by now you’ve been to Aqua Shard for drinks, but how about brunch? This isn’t just any brunch though this is the quaffing Champagne whilst eating lobster benedict and taking in the views from the 32nd level sort of brunch.   We headed up to the dizzying heights last weekend, make sure you get a reservation, by the time we left the queues were starting to snake around the corner and when it’s windy and cold that’s not fun for anyone.  Once upstairs you’re whisked inside through the glass doors, and hit with staggering views of London, it really […]

The Ivy Market Grill

The Ivy is getting a younger sister this month with the arrival of The Ivy Market Grill, an all -day cafe and restaurant in Covent Garden, which is said to be a home from home… just with less Ikea furniture, no empty takeaway boxes on a Sunday morning and a better alcohol supply. Taking the magic of The Ivy but making it a little more accessible, The Ivy Market Grill is for those who want a bite to eat whether it is breakfast, elevenses (which will include crumpets and teacakes!), pre or post theatre, tea or supper but don’t have […]

StreetSmart: Helping the Homeless

When you think about it, in the grand scheme of things £1 is not very much. Yes, every penny counts but nowadays what can you buy for a pound? No, not that morning coffee that makes your morning commute semi-bearable, nor your Uber ride, or even some of your favourite apps. And whilst every penny counts, sparing one probably isn’t going to cause a crisis.  With this in mind, let us introduce you to StreetSmart, which has teamed up with top restaurants in London to raise money for the homeless. Throughout November and December, some of our favourite restaurants such […]

HotBox

You know what is great in cold weather like this? BBQ street food inspired by the Deep South, obviously and an internal heater but you know that might be a bit harder.  Good news on the food front though because opening later this month is the first permanent restaurant from BBQ street food smokers, HotBox. If you think you’ve heard the name before it’s because they’ve been doing the rounds and you’ve probably seen them at Street Feast’s Dalston Yard, Hawker House and Battersea Power Station and now they have chosen the East End, Commercial Street to be exact, as […]

Movies under The Moonlight at Bentley’s

No Christmas is complete without a movie marathon of festive films, particularly the classics. Think Breakfast at Tiffany’s, It’s a Wonderful Life and Elf and you are in festive heaven. However, the one film that mostly epitomises Christmas to us is Miracle on 34th Street which in our opinion has just the right combination of laughter and cries to keep us going for the year. With this in mind, make sure you head straight to Bentley’s where on the 4th December, there will be a private screening of the film complete with popcorn and nibbles. This is no ordinary cinema […]
