We often like to mix our desserts with alcohol but what about martinis and meringues? Now we’ve got your attention. Our favourite cocktail bar is teaming up with The Meringue Girls for a special pop-up cocktail and dessert bar this June. Head bartender, Davide Arruci will be serving a selection of cocktails using Moët Chandon, Belvedere and Hennessy VSOP to make unique, floral-inspired martinis. There will be an assortment of mini meringues to perfectly complement your martini, with exciting flavours such as sour cherry, pistachio and rose, gin and tonic and raspberry. They definitely know how to get us on […]
It’s not been that long since we told you about Francesco Mazzei opening Radici, but now the Italian chef is on to opening his next restaurant as he sets his sights on Battersea Power Station. Part of Circus West Village and joining the likes of Vagabond, The Coffee Works Project, The General Store and No.29 Power Station West, Ben’s Canteen, the new restaurant Fiume (Italian for ‘river’) is the latest restaurant from D and D London. Whilst Francesco will oversee it, Fiume will be run by Head Chef Francesco Chiarelli. The two have worked together for over five years, first […]
Another day, another terrace. However, the new terrace at The Balcon in Sofitel London St James promises to give you a bit more than just your average terrace bar and restaurant this summer. Guests will be able to escape from the bustle of St James’s and relax on the newly opened terrace for dining and drinks. Taking inspiration from the Mediterranean, The Balcon has introduced a new menu to match the warmer months. There will be a selection of filling salads and small plates such as roasted goat’s cheese salad complimented with pomegranate, honey and almonds and grilled harissa prawns […]
We always like to hear when a pop-up is going permanent, especially when that pop-up is Made of Dough, one of London’s pizza champions. They’ve spent the last couple of years touring the country, cooking over 100,000 pizzas in the back of a Land Rover and now they are settling down in south east London. Yep, from next month you’ll be able to find Made of Dough on Bellenden Road in Peckham. With space for fifty covers, the pizzeria will feature a chef’s table, cocktail bar and of course an open wood fire. And it’s here that the pizzas will […]
Next week, Mayfair will welcome Neo Bistro to Woodstock Street. The new restaurant from Alex Harper (former and Head Chef of The Harwood Arms) will be under the guidance of Mark Jarvis (Chef-Patron of Anglo) and is drawing inspiration from the new bistros of Paris. Doing away with fine dining to take a more relaxed approach instead, the menu will be concise but will be constantly evolving and changing. Expect to find cured Tamworth pork, venison chorizo and fresh cheese with smoked potato, grilled leeks and walnut pesto alongside more substantial dishes of roast sea bass with mousserons, English asparagus […]
The general election might be heating up (remember to vote, everyone!) but there is still one question which has been debated amongst Londoners for years. Which is better; East or West?

This June, the Food Truck Festival will be pulling up at both the White City (1st – 4th June) and Stratford (22nd – 25th June) shopping centres as part of the highly anticipated London Food Month. The four day long events will showcase the best food served on […]
