Tips for contacting celebrities

Famous actors, actresses, athletes, musicians and other pop-culture icons have always served as powerful tools for companies seeking to reach consumers and persuade them that their products are ones they too ought to own. Simply speaking: if we see that someone we admire and trust to some degree is associated with a specific brand, we want to be associated with that brand as well. Either we will go and purchase that product or assume that, that brand has a great future and recognition. As a result the power of celebrities to endorse and persuade has reached new heights and Celebrities get approached […]

Heddon Street Kitchen

Gordon Ramsay, a veritable institution in the culinary (and celebrity) world, adds yet another refined restaurant to his luxury portfolio. Heddon Street Kitchen is inspired by its City sister, Bread Street Kitchen, but boasts its very own premier location, in the heart of Regent Street’s Food Quarter. Set across two floors, its glamorous interior closely resembles the classy industrial chic of Bread Street Kitchen, but with more gorgeous golden hues; making it appear aglow with a warming Instagram filter.

The Wild Game Co. Pop-Up

Meat lovers across the capital rejoice as The Wild Game Co. launches its very first stand-alone pop-up dining experience in the foodie’s paradise that is Charlotte Street, and its surrounding area. When it comes to wild game and venison, The Wild Game Co. are about as authentic as it gets; founded by Scotsman Andy Waugh, all their meat is directly sourced from the Scottish Highlands before being, to put it delicately – ‘prepared’ – by his family’s game-butchering business. Andy and his clan of ‘kilt-wearing chefs’ have been making quite the impression on the London dining scene since their beginning […]

Shoryu Ramen, Soho Review

Japanese food is up there with my favourite cuisines but having never ventured to this particular establishment before I was intrigued to see what they would have to offer. The restaurant looks quite unassuming from the outside but inside it takes on the appearance of a cosy Japanese Ramen bar. It’s cosily lit, dark walls and wooden detailing. We were sat at the front of the restaurant in a reasonably narrow space but go out the back and it opens out into a sizeable area, even with a private dining room downstairs. We started by meeting Mimi, restaurant manager and […]

November 2014 Openings

November is a peculiar month. Despite the fireworks that grace our skies on bonfire night, there is not a great deal to be excited about, especially after weeks of preparing for Halloween. This doesn’t mean that you have to sit at home and sulk though. Grab your sparklers and make sure you check out some of the capitals latest openings. From lobster at Fraq’s, to stuffed gyoza at the new Bone Daddies in Kensington, there a heap of new openings to add some fire into a rather dreary month. There is even the promise of breakfast in bed- and with […]

Dim Sum Sundays at Hakkasan

Humans are creatures of comfort, so as the temperature drops and the days get darker it’s all too tempting to stay hidden under an increasing pile of blankets as you worked your way through  Netflix’s entire catalogue, until the spring when you’ll emerge from your lair blinking in the sunlight. Well, it’s time to change that. It’s time to get dressed, and no pyjamas don’t count even if you do wear them with proper shoes, and head to Hakkasan, because they’ve just launched their Winter  Sunday dim sum menu – perfect timing with the clocks going back. It’s all about […]

The Athenaeum’s Paddington Bear Tea Review

In celebration of the new Paddington Bear film (I’m very excited) the super plush – and family friendly – Athenaeum hotel is launching a specially themed afternoon tea, featuring none other than Paddington Bear himself. You even get your very own Paddington Bear toy to take home with you, which for someone over the age of 12 I was probably a little too excited by. The Tea is served in their luxuriously cosy Garden Room, where the windows look out onto their ‘living’ wall (very cool) and everything is a wonderfully warming tone of cream or orange – quite apt […]
