Pasta for Breakfast at Palatino

As a child, you were probably told you couldn’t have ice-cream/chocolate/pizza for breakfast – no one to stop us now though, eh? What you probably weren’t stopped from having was pasta though, probably because you never asked for it – but just think of how good it would be at 10am, a little carby goodness? Stevie Parle thinks so too, because at his latest restaurant, Palatino, they have just launched their breakfast menu and it includes buccatini carbonara. Yep, you can now have carbonara for breakfast. If you can’t get your head round that, then other dishes include salt cod […]

Number 177 Bar & Kitchen Opens

Number 90 Bar & Kitchen in Hackney Wick is getting a sister site today as Bruno Cabral, founder of The Number Group, opens Number 177 Bar & Kitchen in Hoxton. It too will be a mix of music, art and food (three of the finest things in life), with a German edge to it. It’ll be taking inspiration from Berlin’s bar scene, although we assume it will be easier to get into than Berghain… It’s going to be big; there’ll be space for 350 of us and a sliding wall covered in graffiti will divide the main restaurant and bar […]

London’s Top Chefs Celebrate Ceviche Soho’s 5th Birthday

Think back five years ago, could you name a Peruvian restaurant in London? We struggled to think of one. If Londoners wanted to experience authentic Peruvian food and drinks they would probably have had to pack their bags, head to Heathrow and endure a 14-hour flight. That all changed when Peruvian chef Martin Morales opened the doors to Ceviche Soho, introducing a diverse range of flavours such as Nikkei, Criollo, Chifa and Amazonian to the capital. Five years on, Ceviche Soho is still whetting the appetite of hundreds of Londoners with their menu and not to forget those pisco sours… So, it’s only right […]

Teaming up with Live at Zédel, Brassiere Zédel will host an eight day extravaganza of French culture, filled with food, music and live performances. Many shows will grace the stage of the Crazy Coqs, including Les Siestes Acoustiques de Bastian Lallement, inviting you to enjoy music and spoken word, whilst you doze on the floor – […]

Blacklock Opens in the City

Locations with character and history are key when it comes to Gordon and the Blacklock team. Their first restaurant is a housed in a former Soho brothel and now, their second restaurant will be opening in an old electricity substation in the basement of a Grade II listed building. Which just so happens to sit on the site of one of the oldest Medieval meat markets in the city. Obviously, the meat on site is going to be much better now than the meat on offer back in the Medieval period – as you’d expect. They’ve been in close talks […]
