Peyotito: Refined Mexican Cuisine

Long gone are the days of gimmicky sombreros and rainbow ponchos tacked onto the walls, as sophisticated, modern Mexican restaurants are beginning to make their welcome debuts into the London foodie scene. A far cry from the typical ‘Tex-Mex’ cuisine, refined Mexican menus, such as the one at new restaurant Peyotito, are transforming the way the capital views Mexican food in the most positive of ways.

With today being Independence Day London is celebrating in full force and one place opening just in time is Texas Joe. Doing away with the American clichés that are so […]

Food can be art and art can definitely be food (why else do we reach for our phones to capture beautifully presented plates?) so the announcement that Alex Jackson is choosing an art gallery annexe as the location for his first restaurant doesn’t seem that crazy.

Inspired by the simplicity and seasonality of farmhouse cooking in Provence and Languedoc, Alex will be using authentic imported ingredients alongside quality British meat and fish at Sardine, a restaurant […]
