Kerbisher EC1

Fish and chip extraordinaires Saul Reuben and Nick Crossley aka the guys behind Kerbisher and Malt are opening their fifth site at the end of January on Rosebery Avenue just off Exmouth Market and they claim it may be the smallest eat-in chippie in the whole of London! Yup with just 12 covers, Kerbisher EC1 as it will be known is pretty teeny, its main focus is takeaway and it’s the start of a series of smaller openings for Kerbisher and Malt. The menu will still focus on fresh sustainably-sourced fish which can be battered, crumbed in matzo meal or […]

L’eto Launches Brompton Road Venue

L’eto café has just opened its largest branch on Brompton Road, a tourist’s amble from sightseer favourites the Natural History Museum and V&A. Don’t let the location put you off though as this is no tacky restaurant, there isn’t a ‘keep calm and…’ poster in sight. The high end café lures customers in with an impressive patisserie display sure to rival any in France, from cupcakes, to éclairs, to brownies; you’d need a saint’s restraint not to find yourself walking in. Once inside you have the option of the savoury buffet like selection or the recently launched European À la […]

Winter Sun

OK so you’re not detoxing because just like the daylight hours at the moment, life is basically too short. Or perhaps you swapped festive indulgence for a Thai spa and are now ready for action. Either way you could probably do with a drink and all the extra sunshine you can soak up so head over to Granary Square in King’s Cross for Winter Sun, an installation-meets-bar-meets-public space that’s inspired by our need for light in the darkness of winter. The temporary structure of ever-changing light is a collaboration between artists James Bowthorpe and Kim Coleman and architect Andrew Lock. […]

Tea at midnight

The K West Hotel has a musical heritage being the former BBC Building Kensington House in the 60s, with an endless list of music royalty having stayed and most definitely misbehaved including The Kinks, Bob Marley and Bowie. And with music still very much central to the hotel it’s no surprise that when they came to their afternoon tea it too had a musical theme.  It comes in three forms – The Glam Rock Afternoon Tea, The Glam Rock Prosecco Afternoon Tea (both of which are served 2pm -6pm) or the Rock N’ Cocktails Midnight Tea which as the name suggests […]
