Guilt-Free Tea at Wellington Lounge

Cream tea: quintessentially British but essentially fattening. Not what we need in January when our trousers are more than a little tight after a month of gorging on mince pies and chocolate coins. Step forward the sympathetic lot at the award-winning Wellington Lounge, who’ve created a ‘Guiltless Afternoon Tea’ to bring a splash of joy to the month of gym classes and alcohol abstinence. Completely free of refined sugar and packed full of naturally nutrient-rich ingredients (with gluten and dairy free options also available), one could go so far as to say this tea is actually good for you. We […]

Vodafone London Fashion Weekend: Fashion’s Biggest Pop-up

How’s that New Year’s resolution going? You know the one that you set to be more put together, to not wear the same outfit twice, maybe three times in a row and to reintroduce yourself to your make up bag when hungover?  Doesn’t matter if you haven’t stuck to it all the time, but the week you do need to try, is London Fashion Week and in particular Vodafone London Fashion Weekend (26th February – 1st March). Taking place once more at Somerset House and organised by the British Fashion Council, Vodafone London Fashion Weekend is four days of shopping, industry […]

The Tommy Tucker: Your new local

If you live in South West London then the chances are you’ve visited the highly acclaimed Claude’s Kitchen opposite Parson’s Green or at least been for a glass of Champagne or two downstairs at Amuse Bouche. Either way the team, that’s Claude Compton, Jim Morris and George McCabe, are launching their second venue tomorrow – The Tommy Tucker. Just along the road from Fulham Broadway, it’s a  contemporary take on a traditional pub, the sort of place you would want to be your local; rather than the pub with slightly out of date pickled eggs, faded décor and regulars who […]

Taste Portugal Comes to Portal

When asked what your favourite cuisine is we suspect few of you would answer ‘Portuguese’. ‘What even is Portuguese food?!’ we hear some of you mutter.  Well, rising star Ricardo Costa is about to change all that. Billed as one of Portugal’s most creative chefs with his restaurant at the Yeatman Hotel being Porto’s only Michelin-starred establishment, for one night only Costa is reuniting with Antonia Correia at Portal on John Street, where it all began 9 years ago. This exclusive TASTE PORTUGAL event will celebrate all things Portuguese, with Bísaro pork at the centre of a 5-course menu boasting delights […]

Sunday night cabaret

It’s time to take Sunday night  by the horns and squeeze every last drop out of the weekend and no we’re not suggesting you have a boxset marathon or takeaway feast, no instead something a little more sophisticated, more glamourous with more  je ne sais quoi – we’re talking cabaret. That’s right, Scarfes Bar at Rosewood London have recently launched their bi-weekly Sunday evening cabaret nights. Hosted by Dusty Limits who is at the forefront of the new cabaret scene,  the bar will welcome the likes of Vicky Butterfly, Coco Dubois and Laura London to perform alongside cabaret trio led […]

Hally’s sister Little H Opens

Opening today is Little H a new deli/café bringing a slice of California and Cape Town to Parson’s Green and a little bit of sunshine to the miserable month.  Created by husband and wife, Philip Beatty and Anna Halliday who also own the ever popular Hally’s just over the road, Little H will have a farm to table approach to food, they’re all about locally sourced and high quality ingredients, which sounds ideal to us. Timorous Beasties are behind the eclectic beach-style atmosphere of the café which seats 12. Topsy-turvy foliage hangs in front of a back drop of pineapples […]

Smith & Wollensky

Meat lovers rejoice. This spring, Smith & Wollensky is bringing its collection of boutique American steakhouses across the pond and opening in the Adelphi Building on John Adams Street, just off The Strand. Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Group, SWRG for short, opened its first venue back in 1977 and now has nine locations from Miami Beach to Las Vegas and Houston Texas, which, coupled with the fact that the US pretty much invented the steakhouse, we think they’ve probably got it sussed when it comes to beef. Expect Imported USDA prime alongside British and Irish cuts (the kitchen features a […]

The ever changing Carousel

Carousel, on Blandford Street Marylebone is one restaurant you can never get bored of. Why? Because the chefs are constantly changing, with different residencies happening every couple of weeks or so, blink and you’ll miss one. Recent collaborations have included Selin Kiazim, Javier Rodriguez and Tommy Forster and guess what? They’ve just announced the chefs that are joining Ollie Templeton, resident chef and co- founder in January.  Kicking things off is Uyen Luu,  food writer, chef, the founder of the acclaimed Vietnamese Supper Club (and comes with a personal recommendation from Jamie Oliver!) before the talented Henrik Noren takes over […]
