Restaurant Critics Cook for Top Chefs

Being a food critic has many perks, and eating brilliant food at some of the world top restaurants is definitely worth the hard work and writing that comes afterwards. A pretty plush job! The same can’t be said for the poor chefs who spend their days rushing around boiling hot kitchens, meticulously planning everything and barely getting a minute to sit back and relax. Humanitarian organisation Action Against Hunger, however, have decided that it’s about time the tables turned and the critics spent a little time in the hot seat, so to speak.   The idea is easy enough.

Pop Brixton’s 4-Day Birthday Extravaganza

A lot can happen in a year. If you think back to one year ago today, chances are a few things were a little different. Maybe you moved house, met the love of your life, or stumbled upon the then-newly opened Pop Brixton, which transformed an old, abandoned car park into a hub of food, drink and partying.

An ingredient never used in a restaurant in the UK before, an ingredient that improves the taste and texture of food, whilst still containing 40 times less sodium chloride than table salt and an ingredient that boosts the consumption of 93 trace minerals essential to the human body. What is this ingredient you ask? It’s Pure Sea Water. Sea Water extracted from the […]

Jazz Cafe Camden Relaunches

New venues are great but when somewhere with 25 colourful years of history relaunches it gets us even more excited than usual. There’s something about a stage that has welcomed Amy Winehouse, Lana del Ray and Gil Scott Heron that just doesn’t compare with a brand spanking new venue. Legendary Camden music venue, The Jazz Cafe, is reopening its doors on the 24th May and already the line-up is stellar. Split into bar, mezzanine restaurant and dance floor, nights at The Jazz Cafe will begin in the traditional way, with dinner in the 69-seat dining room before the show. Good […]

Live Music 5 Days a Week at 100 Wardour Street

There’s something for everyone – whether you’re after a big bowl of hummus for lunch, cocktails after a stressful Monday or mid-week dinner with friends, you don’t really need a plan you can just roam the streets till you spot somewhere you like the look of/recognise/doesn’t have a forty-minute queue (delete as applicable). In the same way that it’s great, the choice can be a little overwhelming – where to start? You’ve probably been to 100 Wardour Street already (if not, why not?), be it for weekend brunch or one thirsty Thursday but it really comes alive is […]
