The Popup Worth Making A Pilgrimage To

It’s time to make a pilgramage. Not to Rome, Mecca or Canterbury but to Dalston. Pilgrim, the four-date six-course popup was a total sell-out of a success when it originally popped up earlier this year, and so not only is it now returning for another run (and a new menu) across six dates this month, but Pigrim will popup on a permanament basis from April, which is great news for any fans of Spanish food. The inspiration for Pilgrim comes from Camino de Santiago, a pilgramage dating back to the 9th century and involving travelling to Santiago de Compostela in […]

Yen: Sushi and Soba On The Strand

Forget getting sober for Christmas, how about settling instead for Soba? Soba, the Japanese name for noodles made from buckwheat, are the speciality of Yen, the new Japanese fine-dining restaurant coming to The Strand. The signature dish will be made, by hand, twice a day in a bespoke glass viewing shed situated in the restaurant. Soba-istas Maruno Hidenori & Katsuki Sakurai are both experts in soba and trained with the so-called ‘Master of Soba’, Takahashi Kunihiro from Yamanashi in Japan. Away from the noodles Hiyama Hiroki will be the creative genius behind the menu, having worked in a number of […]

We Review The Bletchley…Shhh

What: The Bletchley is an immersive, World War 2 themed pop-up where you use your cunning and deductive skills to earn yourself tailor-made cocktails. New? The original pop-up covertly opened in March 2017 and after 7410 applications it went permanent in July. Where? The code cracking experience begins before you even arrive, as the first task is to actually find The Bletchley – we were clearly dealing with pros. After shiftily casing World’s End Market a few times we bit the bullet and went inside to ask the for help. It was revealed to us that The Bletchley is hidden in an […]

The Prince: The New Hotspot Everyone is Talking About

West Brompton is mainly known for its cemetery…there isn’t much going on. You don’t go to West Brompton for the great restaurants or the rooftops. That is, until now. Because West Brompton might have had to wait, but as they say patience is a virtue, and that patience is being rewarded with The Prince. A whole street transformed into an epicurean avenue. A whole street. Taking over the former Prince of Wales pub and the four disused connecting buildings on Lillie Road, The Prince is brought to you by the team behind Pergola on the Roof and Pergola Paddington Central, […]

We Review Camino Shoreditch

What? Hispanophile Richard Bigg has opened his fifth London Camino, bringing the group’s relaxed Spanish atmosphere and authentic tapas to Shoreditch, where they opened their first bar 22 years ago.

Where? 2 Curtain Road, Shoreditch, EC2A 3BL. www.camino.uk.com On the Menu: In true Spanish style, the menu offers a plethora of nibbles and meat, cheese and seafood plates to share.

Covent Garden’s Wizard Tournament

Anyone who’s ever looked after children will know that keeping them fully entertained for more than three minutes flat is an impossible job without intervention from the occult. Thankfully the Covent Garden Hotel has teamed up with a team of wizards (Sharky and George) and with a little hocus pocus and a tablespoon of newts’ eyes they will jump on a passing broomstick and immerse your children into a tale of witchcraft and wizards. Sharky and George are London’s finest childrens’ entertainers. Having met at school, Charlie Astor (Sharky) and George Whitfield set up Sharky and George as a kids’ […]

We Review Tab X Tab

What? “The nice part of Westbourne Grove starts here”. That’s what the lady next to me said as she momentarily glanced up from her phone. I’m not sure what prompted her to say that, but I’ll take her word for it. If this is the start of the more des-res area then it’s a pretty good place to start. Tab X Tab is a new artisan coffee shop serving up brunch all day (there is a saviour) and coffee from Bocca. New? It opened back in July but they’ve only recently launched their all-day brunch menu. Where? At the start […]
