However, those with their fingers on the pulse are keeping a watchful eye on another upcoming release – The Baglioni Marrakech.

Sushinho Below

Kings Road favourite, Sushinho, is branching out subterranean style with a new stand-alone venue beneath the main event at number 312. We were all a bit suspicious  to start with but are now complete converts to its divine Japanese-Brazilian fusion cuisine. More casual than its ground level sibling, here snacking reigns supreme as opposed to full on meals and small plates are the order of the day. Focal point is a sushi and robata bar serving sashimi and nigiri and fresh-from-the-grill skewers of prawns, butterfish, Wagyu beef and veggie options too. Tapas style dishes of baby back ribs with miso […]

Rumours and sneak peeks were lauched months ago, but May 5th sees the official launch of the cosmetic collection, comprising Core and Trend divisions.
