Westerns Laundry Opens in LoHo

2014 was the year that Stoke Newington welcomed Primeur, and now Jeremie Cometto-Lingenheim and David Gingell are back with their next restaurant in Lower Holloway…or as we like to call it, LoHo. To get to Westerns Laundry you’ll need to pass through a feather blade fence and entry code gate, before crossing the forecourt, planted with Himalayan birch trees and dotted with benches, designed and made by Jeremie.

Curry and Fine Wine: Gymkhana and Noble Rot Join Forces

Winchester Palace might not be there anymore but you can still indulge – in a different sense of course, because from late February the grounds (on Winchester Walk, next to Borough Market) will be home to the next Hawksmoor. The building that Will Beckett and Huw Gott are occupying was originally built as a hops warehouse […]

Intimate Dining With Mark Hix and Special Guest Chefs

We all know London is a hubbub of restaurants to eat at, street kitchens to mingle at, and pop-ups to marvel at. You know the drill, you go to a restaurant, excited about the culinary creativity that awaits, but lo and behold, you have to wait (inwardly impatient) in an orderly queue for, well, ages. Sitting at your table, you struggle to hear your companion even though they’ve been squished uncomfortably close to you, and all you can think is: does it really have to be so loud? Chef Mark Hix has artfully solved both problems, presenting a series of intimate […]
