Hamburgers at The Draft House

German chef Oliver Trific is flying into London on 22nd October to unveil something rather special on another one of Young&Foodish Daniel Young's BurgerMondays. Where is this taking place? The Draft House Tower Bridge. This will be the world premiere of Hamburg-hailing Trific's 'Hamburger' (get it?), a steakburger doused in smoky shallot mayonnaise, beetroot pickles, herring salsa, a fried quail egg and fries to finish. Trust us, it's unbelievably good (after all, didn't hamburger come from the name of the second largest German city originally?) Why don't you query it over a burger? There are two sittings to choose from: […]

Michael Nadra

This Chocolate Week will see London throwing up all sorts of cannot-refuse surprises. But have you heard about what's happening at Michael Nadra? At both restaurants (one in Primrose Hill, one in Chiswick), there are a handful of limited edition (naturally…) chocolate creations waiting for you.  Try the Passion fruit chocolate fondant with basil and white chocolate ice cream, or what about, the Windsor Estate fallow venison with root vegetable rosti, cavolo nero and chocolate sauce? There's also a Chocolate Caramel Martini (pictured) – but that's only if you feel you can squeeze in any more chocolate post-meal.  Michael Nadra, […]

Baroque

  Party lynchpin Gerry Calabrese is launching Baroque, a brand new venue within Park Lane’s Playboy club. He calls it “a unique drinking experience which you just won’t get anywhere else in London.” Its USP? The most extensive vintage Champagne list in Europe of course! Having undergone an extensive refurbishment by CID Interiors, theatrical and flamboyant décor sees a colour scheme of gold, ruby red and magenta alongside heavy drapes, Louis XIV chairs, cabaret-style tables and antique mirrors. But back to the Champagne. Guests can pre-order bespoke Champagne towers – a vintage art form which Gerry feels has been sadly […]

ABSOLUTly Unique

ABSOLUT vodka is once more pushing the boundaries with its latest bottle design. Using a radical production process, each the four million bottles of ABSOLUT UNIQUE created is a one-of-a-kind work of art. We hear that the production required a complex interaction of human and mechanical elements together with a carefully orchestrated randomness. This constituted splash guns and colour-generating machines along with complex coating, pattern and placement algorithms programmed in to ensure that no two bottles would be alike. 35 different colours were used and 51 pattern types were applied to the bottles – each of which bears its own […]

Mat Collishaw at Other Criteria

This month, Damien Hirst’s Other Criteria gallery in New Bond Street is staging an exhibition of new works by Mat Collishaw which combines additions to his Innercity Inhalers glass sculpture series with further prints from Last Meals on Death Row. The former are replicas of plastic smoking bongs used the world over. These interpretations of Marcel Duchamp’s ‘Air de Paris’, address the polluting yet mind expanding effects of inner city air so viewers looking through the translucent semi melted bongs might be forgiven for worrying their drink’s been spiked! The Last Meal prints feature meals chosen by American death row […]
