Tartufi and Friends: Truffle Hunting

If there is one ingredient that gets us a little giddy with excitement when we see it on the menu then it’s truffle (and for once it’s not the chocolate variety) so you can imagine how happy we were when we heard Harrods is opening Tartufi & Friends, a whole restaurant dedicated to it...

Rivington Grill’s Gin Bop

What other drink can say it caused a whole city to go temporarily crazed? Or is nicknamed Mother’s Ruin? None apart from beloved gin (the craze being the one that swept London in the first half of the 18th century when you could buy a glass for a few pennies). London’s love of gin is still...

7 Places to go to Cure a Hangover

Oh hangovers, the body’s way of punishing you for having one too many last night, especially given the older we get the worse they seem to get – which frankly is just unfair.  The pounding headaches, the nausea, the worry at what you said the night before and generally hating of the world and...

5 Great Places For Sushi

Quick, healthy (well if you forget the sugar water) and very moreish sushi is one of those dishes that it seems like London can’t get enough of. Good thing then that we have a whole plethora of sushi bars from Michelin-starred restaurants in Mayfair to sitting on the floor in bars in Soho, here...
