Calcutta Street: Bengali Home Dining in Fitzrovia

We can all buy a jar of korma sauce, boil some rice and microwave a few poppadoms and a few of us can make proper use of our pestle and mortar to make a proper curry. Shrimoyee Chakraborty is one such person. Originally (and still today) a food blogger, Shrim has more than a dozen events under her belt including a pop-up in March 2015 which lit the fire inside her to open her own restaurant. A year and a bit later, Bengali home dining restaurant, Calcutta Street, is opening in Fitzrovia (where else?), bringing the unique warmth of Bengali […]

H.en Islington Residency Launches With Masterchef Finalists

Over the past few years, people have begun to be more and more conscious of where their food comes from. To put it into perspective, the number of vegans in the UK has risen by 350% in the past decade, a increase driven primarily by a concern for the proper treatment of animals and the conservation of the environment. So what if there was a restaurant that helped to do both? H.en is an ethical chicken restaurant based in Brighton, but launched a new London residency in Islington towards the end of July. With the help of Masterchef finalists Billy Wright and Jack Layer, […]

Aubaine Opens its First Deli

They say it’s the little things in life that mean the most, that the small moments are better than the big events and if there is one simple pleasure in life that we can’t get enough of then it’s fresh bread.

Well don’t book your plane tickets just yet, as Italian ristorante Sartoria is taking advantage of the delectable sunshine and is bringing all of this and more right […]
