Current Affairs: Hotels You Can Book By The Hour…

It’s officially the sexiest day of the year, unless you’re Boris Johnson, in which case it’s March 29th. Eurgh, that’s a Y-fronted visual I didn’t prepare you for. But ol’ Bojo knows a thing or two about affairs, and I’m not just talking about foreign affairs, but affairs at work, at home and, in hotels. So if Boris were looking for a place to take his new flame, or if he’s seeing anyone behind his new flame’s back (not impossible) then he wants to find a hotel offering day stays. It works like this: most hotel rooms are empty during […]

Holy Chow! Restaurants In Converted Churches

Whilst it might seem a tad on the eerie side delving into your sausages and mash inside an old church, there’s also an intriguing element too it. I mean, a church is the last place you’d expect to have a meal right?! Well, perhaps not the last place, I can imagine munching in a volcano...

London’s Indian Fine Dining Scene Welcomes An Emperor

Atul Kochhar is back! The first Indian chef to receive a Michelin star is opening a new restaurant, Kanishka, on Mayfair’s Maddox Street and it’s the most anticipated Indian restaurant opening in a recent string of high profile Indian openings. Kochhar won his Michelin star at Tamarind of Mayfair back in 2001 before moving to open Benares the following year, again bagging himself a Michelin star. Under his watch he established Benares at the very top of the London’s culinary scene, where it firmly remains, before finally leaving, apparently under something of a cloud, earlier in 2018. Perhaps unrelated, Kanishka […]

Marking the start of spring and a time of new beginnings, it’s the longest Chinese holiday and also so-happens to be Tony Truong, Head Chef of Mei Ume at Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square’s, favourite time […]
