Tonteria Launch The Thursday Ritual

During Mayan sacrifice rituals, humans were sacrificed to the deities as blood was seen as a source of nourishment and human blood was the ultimate offering to the gods. Taking this idea of a ritual, but most definitely getting rid of the human sacrifice part, Tonteria has launched their new night ‘The Thursday Ritual’ where the most you’ll be sacrificing is your chance for a hangover-free Friday. The Sloane Square club which is based on the Tulum Jungle and the mysterious nature of the Mayans will be hosting the night in association with Arcane Gallery, a luxury womenswear store celebrating […]

The American Restaurant That Went South

It’s not a one-way-avenue at Avenue. The restaurant has pivoted from a Contemporary American menu to a modern Asian cuisine fused with a fiery South American twist. The about-turn is a huge change for the St James’s modernist cube of a restaurant. Part of the D&D empire, Avenue has taken their inspiration from the ‘Ring of Fire’, not the Johnny Cash song but the culinary regions in the volcano belt of the Pacific rim. Executive Chef Mickael Weiss will be rolling out his new menu seven days a week and the new dishes include spiced Tuna tartare, tobiko, yuzu emulsion, […]

From Market Stall To Mayfair Boutique: A Food Success Story

Why not popina to Popina? The new cafe and delicatessen from chef Isadora Popović will be arriving on Mayfair’s Duke Street next month and will be the first permanent home for what’s become a hugely popular weekly farmers market stalwart with stalls at over 20 locations from Broadway Markets to Portobello Road.

The Ultimate Food Challenge: The Half Stone Burger

It’s no wonder Man v. Food is such a popular series, it’s basically food porn. A chance for us to indulge in our food fantasies of basically gorging ourselves silly on deep fat fried everything and then winning eternal glory and the respect of our peers. Or maybe that’s just me. Anyway, rather than delving into the inner workings of my mind, back to business, Man v. Food is back on our screens and with a new host. After years of eating, Adam Richman has handed over the baton to Casey Webb and to celebrate the new host and new […]

The Bar With A Barbers Attached: Go Big Guns At The Gunmakers

Ask my parents about life outside of SW3 and they think we all live in a world across between Trainspotting and down-town Raqqa. Mention Clerkenwell and they will automatically assume there’s guns involved. And, confusingly, now there sort of are, with the opening of The Gunmakers. And what’s more, I think my mum would love it. The project is based in an old school London boozer, a 19th century pub tucked away on Eyre Street Hill. Sweet&Chilli have taken it over (they’re the guys who brought us Nine Lives, by the way) and left much of the original features in […]

The Countdown Begins: Dabbous 2.0 Is Coming To Mayfair

Wahoo for Dabbous Two! Easily one of our favourite restaurants, and currently on hiatus since leaving it’s Fitzrovia home of five years, Dabbous is coming back, and from the sound of things coming back in style. Welcome… *drum roll* Dabbous Piccadilly. Or Dabbous Green Park. Or simply Dabbous (we don’t know what they’ll call it, but assume it’ll be named after the eponymous chef). The restaurant just started hiring staff, which suggests things are about to start kicking off, and in a good way. Offering breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as afternoon tea (a new string to the Dabbous […]
