Mayfair Pizza Co. Sweet Pizza Review

Take everything you think you know about pizza and re-imagine it. That’s what Mayfair Pizza Co. has done, with interesting results. Mayfair Pizza Co have created a Sweet Pizza menu with fruits and chocolates instead of tomatoes and cheese. The pizzas are ideal for sharing due to their size, (smaller than a regular pizza but still pretty sizeable) and because all that dough makes for a heavy pudding especially if you have already sampled a savoury pizza for your main. The Sweet Pizza menu has 4 options; Wild Strawberry with White Chocolate, Nutella Calzone, Banana Tiramisu and Limoncello & Lime. […]

LFW Closing Party at Tonteria

Last night at Tonteria, Cristal was splashed, latex body suits were donned and eyebrows were raised at their distinctly dominatrix themed party. Marking the close of London Fashion Week, Guy Pelly and friends enjoyed champagne in VIP surrounded by catwalk models in Soft Paris lingerie and cat masks. In conjunction with Profile Model Management and PRITCH London (who introduced their new ad campaign there) this was truly an event that sizzled. www.tonteria.co.uk

Far Rockaway Review

The first thing that struck us about Far Rockaway was its size – it is vast, a mix of low tables, high  tables, little tables, trestle tables, sofas and bars, the next thing we  noticed was just how colourful it was. Every inch is decorated, whether it is graffiti art, skateboards lining the bar, neon lit up signs huge murals of world leaders or the album artwork that is plastered all over the bathroom walls.  And yet somehow it wasn’t overwhelming or garish which is always a bonus. The menu is unashamedly American, no fine dining here – just lots […]

This month combine two of the world’s greatest pleasures (pancakes and shopping of course) in John Lewis’ pop up pancake restaurant. Framed in the window of the busy Oxford Street branch, chefs will cook up gourmet pancakes that will make your simple lemon and sugar option look decidedly lack lustre.  Organised by cookware company Tefal and using their new Ingenio cookware range, the pancake will be prepared to an audience of passing shoppers before being served in the Tefal Ingenio restaurant. Officially the first pop up restaurant ever to be held in a shop window this is definitely one for […]
