Kouzu Review

Kouzu the recently opened Japanese restaurant in Belgravia, is headed in the kitchen by the former founding chef of Zuma, and is truly something special. How special? So special that head chef Kyoichi Kai has carefully selected the all-Japanese kitchen team which feature some of London’s most talented and celebrated Japanese chefs. As soon you walk through the imposing doors to the refurbished bank you are instantly welcomed by the dramatic light feature above your head which illuminates the spiralling staircase to the first floor. The service at a restaurant can really make or break an experience and we were […]

Festive Treats at Winterville

After weeks of speculation, the first inklings of the food on offer at Winterville has been released and here at The Handbook, we are not disappointed. For those that haven’t already heard Winterville, which is taking place in Victoria Park, seeks to re-boot the festive format combining outdoor ice rinks, huge ferris wheels and horse drawn carriages with spiegeltents (Dutch travelling dance halls), roller discos and craft beers. No Christmas fair is complete without a mandatory food market going on at the side and Winterville’s will certainly not leave you wanting for more. With Voodoo Ray’s famous pizza slices and […]

Frescobaldi London

Following my namesake and having spent the summer inter-railing around Italy exploring Florence, Venice and Rome, the opening of Frescobaldi, the first standalone restaurant in the UK from the Frescobaldi family was one that I was not going to miss. And despite spending three weeks, exploring every nook and cranny of Florence, the closest I got to Tuscany where the food is inspired from, was the wine I had been sampling, so I was looking forward to a taste of it. Whilst most reviewers have described the food at Frescobaldi’s as authentic Italian (which it is), there is much more […]

Take a Grand Tour with Pennethorne’s

Whether through the pages of David Nicholls latest novel or splashed across our television screens in period dramas, there is no doubt about it, there is penchant for Europe in the air. And whilst Paris, Florence and Rome are not too far away, it is always nice to know that we can find a little slice of our favourites cities in London- especially in regards to our bank balances. For this reason, we were delighted to hear of the opening of Pennethorne’s Café and Bar at Somerset House on 28th November, which promises a menu inspired by the Grand Tours […]

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 […]

Based in the west wing of Somerset House, Fortnum’s Lodge will be on guard to provide the people with London with a fun and festive winter retreat- you don’t even have to have tickets for the ice rink to get in on the action, meaning no unwanted falls…at least not from the ice itself- we can’t say the same after a few of their cocktail tipples! Open from 10am until late, The Lodge, is a family friendly restaurant where you […]

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 […]
