OMG: A 2nd Press For Champagne Restaurant Has Opened

Russian restaurateur Leonid Shutov is at it again, creating miracles and sprinkling them across London. You may be familiar with Bob Bob Ricard the restaurant so nice they named it twice, with a press for Champagne button that takes a lot of trumping. And today sees the opening of its little sister Bob Bob Cité, ( we’re all saying “finally” as Shutov’s last opening was 18 months behind schedule and this one was delayed by fourteen months!) Alas, perfection doesn’t come easily so we’re happy to let Shutov off!  The restaurant resides inside the Leadenhall Building or, for those who love […]

The Brunch Where Champagne Arrives Via Your Own Personal Train

Chew chew! All aboard the Tattinger Express, a non-stopping service straight to your liver. Someone at Burger & Lobster has decided that the most efficient way to serve Champagne is to send it via trainset, and so for the restaurant’s new bottomless Champagne brunch they’ll be firing up the miniature railway and sending your drinks on the length of the nine-metre bar. Putting a whole new meaning to ‘the fat controller’, you can gorge on the full a la carte menu, which includes their ‘famous’ prime cut Nebraskan 10 ounce burger or wild Atlantic lobster (apparently one of the few […]

Where to Party Like It’s 1929

Since its opening in 1929, Quaglino’s has always been the place to see and be seen. It’s been London’s watering hole for A-listers, the arts set and royalty. Princess Diana snuck through the kitchens, a table was permanently reserved for Princess Margaret and it was the first public restaurant ever visited by a reigning monarch when the Queen and Prince Philip dined in 1956. Having survived both the recession of the early 1990s and 2000s it has continued to be the go-to place for partying, entertainment and no doubt side of scandalous behaviour. When smoking was in, everyone turned into […]

The Wine Tasting Event You Won’t Want To Miss

Is it just us or do the many labels given to wine get a bit lost in translation. Biodynamic? Low-intervention? Our heads are already spinning and that’s not even from the wine! The good news is that Berry Bros. & Rudd have got your back; appreciating the confusion that surrounds wine they’re hosing their first wine tasting which will celebrate sustainability in the wine making process (and hopefully shed some light on what the heck all these words mean!) For the lesser informed amongst you, Berry Bros. & Rudd is in fact Britain’s oldest family-owned wine and spirits merchant, so we’re pretty sure they’ve been […]

There’s a Brand New Beauty and Beast Bottomless Brunch

When reviewing restaurants you always hope that the chef will read the article, and if they take onboard the feedback you gave about the chips not needing to be served in a mini deep fat fryer (whoever thought that was a good idea needs to have a word with themselves) then even better. What you don’t expect is for the restaurant to take your words and use them to create a whole new brunch… but M Restaurants has gone there.  They’ve taken Bill Knott of the Financial Times words “Stylish and ambitious…Michael Reid’s menu matches beauty with the beast” and […]
