The Bentley London

The Bentley London Waldorf Astoria Collection has launched a brand new concept in hotels, offering the entire building to patrons for private hire, thus catering for the most dignified and exclusive of groups.

The hotel will assign a 'Head Guest Ambassador' to each party taking over the hotel, whose task it is to manage all requirements and to coordinate […]

Manson Fulham

From the same team that brought you the hugely successful Sands End Pub – Manson, with Chef Gemma Tuley (the youngest ever appointed head chef under Gordon Ramsey) at the helm, has the potential to be truly excellent. Half of France welcomed us in to an extremely casual and comfortable bistro style restaurant at the parsons green end of the Fulham road. If anything the waiters were a little too enthusiastic, surprising, given that one in particular couldn’t actually speak any English. By the time the food arrived though, I realised they had good reason to be. My trio of […]

Vive La Revolution

"Once you kill a cow you gotta make a burger" says Lady Gaga to Beyonce in the feature length video for her latest single, Telephone and if the new Guerilla Burger joint in James Street is anything to go by, we reckon she’s definitely onto something. With slogans including ‘The People’s Patty’, ‘Drop Food Not Bombs’ and ‘Buns Not Guns’ you might be forgiven for thinking that Guerilla Burgers is some kind of pop-up marketing stunt dreamt up by the adverting gurus at the nearby Selfridges. However, it’s actually the new offering from the team behind the highly successful Giraffe […]

Primavera 2010

With Fashion Week but a memory, we turn to Primavera 2010 offerings with a more gastronomic bent. From Italy’s fashion capital of Milan comes the Alvaro Group’s Pollen nestled in Vogue House territory just behind Hanover Square and Cielo on New Burlington Street does it for the Sardinian contingent. At only 29, slick Italian entrepreneur Livio Bisterzo is still a spring chicken but the founder of ultra fashionable Maddox Club and men's skincare range Kyoku, is certainly not one to let the grass grow under his feet. Recently named one of the most influential Londoners by the Evening Standard for […]
