If you’re in Pimlico then you might have noticed the new kid on the block (and if not then let us tell you) the boutique hotel, Artist Residence (from Charlie Newbury and Justin Salisbury), on Cambridge Street, has just opened the new-all day dining venture, Cambridge Street Café. With a focus on wholesome, fresh, produce, Head Chef Radek Nitkowski (formerly Dean Street Townhouse) will be serving food throughout the day, starting with breakfast from 7:30am. The marble topped bar will be lined with newspapers, Allpress coffee and Flint & Co tea, setting the order of the day. A Belfast […]
We love brunch. It’s definitely in our top five meals along with breakfast, afternoon tea, lunch and dinner. Who doesn’t love two meals in one go? The way to soothe our hangovers, catch up with friends and eat our way through the day. The only way to make it better? The addition of bottomless alcohol obviously. And here are London’s latest additions to the bottomless brunch scene.
This September our Soho foodie haven, Kingly Court is going to see the arrival of Dirty Bones on its top floor and the food is going to be well and truly dirty…in the best possible way. Forget about courgetti, quinoa and nut butter this is all about American comfort food, the sort of food that Instagram was made for, the sort of food that your cheat day/week/life needs to revolve around. We’re talking The Mac Daddy Burger – a burger topped with pulled beef short ribs, mac ‘n’ cheese and Dirty Bones barbecue sauce and Dirty Bone pickles and BBQ […]
We all know that there’s nothing better than cuddling up to the sofa and watching a film, right? Well, actually there is something better and that is enjoying a classic movie against a stunning outdoor backdrop. And anyway, staring at that ‘vintage’ poster your housemate bought from Urban Outfitters gets boring after a while. Presented by The Nomad Cinema in association with Chestertons, The Grosvenor Film Festival is offering beautiful outdoor spaces in Mayfair & Belgravia for your viewing pleasure. Belgrave’s Square Garden, Brown Hart Gardens and Wilton Crescent Garden will all be transformed into open air cinemas where you can enjoy […]
Following on from their tapas restaurants Ivy’s and Little Ivy’s, tomorrow Cristine Leone and Christina Lahaniati are opening The Lobster Bar on Richmond Road in Hackney and as you can imagine there is a lot of lobster. A lot. Quirky but well put together, the menu is a fusion of nationalities, inspired by the owners’ Greek and Brazilian seaside upbringings and their mutual love of travelling and unsurprisingly the lobster is the star of the show, being served however you desire; in a roll, grilled, tossed through spaghetti… we have been eyeing up the lobster benedict. If lobster isn’t your […]
Don’t despair that summer is almost over (it never really started anyway, let’s be honest) because we’ve got the perfect celebration to the start of autumn – The Bayou Banquet. Brought to you by the New Orleans inspired supper club, Slap Ya Papa, the two week festival will take over the Victorian railway arches, The Vaults to celebrate the launch of The Vaults Kitchen a new restaurant space. New York and LA it’s all about healthy living, juices and quinoa, central America love their fried food (check out the food stalls at the recent Iowa State Fair) but in the […]
It’s time to limber up, get your competitive side ready and game like its 1999 because Notting Hill’s favourite flatmates at The Little Yellow Door are inviting you over for a night of cocktails, killer food and retro gaming starting on Wednesday. Forget the latest games and consoles, we’re talking about the originals, the PlayStation 1, Xbox, Nintendo 64 and the games that first got us hooked – Mario Kart, Sonic and Goldeneye. Get together a team of four, book in an hour slot (which gives you half an hour with two consoles) and get gaming. The games will be […]
If you’re one of those annoyingly competitive people who are hungry not just for food but also victory, then you need to try out some of London’s top food challenges. From two-foot sausage rolls to fry ups that are so big they could be served on a dustbin lid, these challenges will give you a proper taste of what it takes to live the Man v. Food lifestyle.
In recent years London’s boutique hotels have made a name for themselves, people are after something a little more personal, a little more unique and something which feels more like a home from home (there’s also less chance of getting lost in the maze of corridors and rooms, just saying) and the latest boutique hotel to open is The Zetter Townhouse Marylebone. Its sister hotel, The Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell is said to feel less like a hotel and more like the house of a fabulous and eccentric great aunt (her name is Wilhelmina if you’re wondering) and the Marylebone addition […]
As we all know afternoon tea is a very British tradition, all thanks to the Duchess of Bedford being rather peckish between meals and Hotel Café Royal is launching The London Royal Tea on the 14th September which will be a celebration of both London and British history. Served in the iconic Oscar Wilde Bar, the afternoon tea service will begin with a bell being rung to signal the start of service which harks back to the 1800s when the muffin men would ring their bells to say the muffins were ready, that is until 1839 when it was prohibited.
