World’s End

World's End lies at the end of the King’s Road which, in Chelsea terms at least, may well be the end of the world as we know it. A fashionable hub since the 1960s with the uber cool Granny Takes a Trip, the locale is on our hip radar once more, with the launch of the eponymous World’s End at 459 King’s Road. The three pronged venue taking its name from the iconic World’s End distillery in which it is housed, is the baby of First Restaurant Group’s Mitchell and Meredith Tillman, stylish offspring of BFC chairman Harold Tillman.

Coco di Mama

    Workers in the City’s Square Mile now have a brand new lunch spot to love. Enter Coco di Mama (a play on the Italian for ‘Mama’s boy’), a 20 seat venue combining the finest Italian ingredients and offering a fresh alternative to humdrum high street sandwiches, soups and wraps. Amid a sea of cheerful red and white gingham table cloths and take out bags to match, we’re talking freshly prepared Al Bronzo pasta from Sicily with homemade sauce. It’s been slowly drawn through bronze dies to create the tiny ridges for sauces such as fiery arrabiatta or decadent […]

On yer bike…

We’re big fans of the food at Asia de Cuba at St Martin’s Lane and Suka at The Sanderson and it looks as though we’re not alone. In fact, we’re beginning to wonder whether Morgans Hotel Group is worried that guests may be enjoying their gourmet charms a tad too much. They have just launched a brand new bicycle program, offering guests complimentary hire of the stylish Dutch inspired Public J7, encouraging them to explore the city and its nearby parks on two wheels. Move over Boris. These bikes are beautifully crafted and skillfully designed for stop-and-go city riding. The […]

The Dorchester

The Grill at The Dorchester, fronted by renowned head chef Brian Hughson demonstrated a master class in understated, tasteful and highly satisfying modern British cuisine. The décor might resemble a kind of design lovechild between Liberace and William Wallace, but underneath the slightly garish exterior lays a restaurant, and head chef, at the very top of their game. As we were guided through the tasting menu it became increasingly clear that extraordinary care and attention had been put in to creating the plethora of delicate flavours and combinations that adorned each and every one of the eight courses that were […]

Kerbisher and Malt

We love it when retro favourites get revived and suddenly find themselves the hottest ticket du jour once again. And this year, it’s definitely the turn of the humble fish and chips to make a hipster comeback! From Poppies in Spitalfields, the old school East End chippie founded by Pat ‘Pop’ Newland (with its crunch batter cooked to a top secret family recipe) to 1939 established Notting Hill stalwart, Geales (with its a Noughties make-over by Mark Fuller, Oli Burgess and co) branching out into leafy Chelsea Green, we’re all hot for cod, skate, jellied eels and crispy Maris Piper!
