London’s Most Unusual Watering Hole

Baths are very divisive; there are those who swear by them, those who hate them, and very little in between. I personally have never been a fan but if my bath was to be converted into a bar, the game would most certainly be changed and I reckon you’d have a hard time getting me out of it. London’s converted bath house is now home to By Appointment Only, the latest bar concept by Camm and Hooper, who have aimed to create a bar which will fascinate themselves as well as their fellow consumers. Elegant decanters will display in-house spirit infusions […]

Surprise Five Course Meals at Kurobuta

We’ve written about them loads (yep, again) but we can just about forgive you if haven’t yet made it to one of Scott Hallsworth’s Kurobuta restaurants – so little time, so much to do. The Japanese bar and grill in Chelsea, Marble Arch and Harvey Nichols’ foodie fifth floor are now giving you another reason to visit and much sooner than you may think: Tuesday, to be precise. No longer just the day-after-Monday when you feel no closer to Friday than you actually are, Tuesdays have been given a new nickname at Kurobuta and it’s catchy. We present to you Tight Ass […]

Out with the Coffee, in with the Tea

Fancy a cuppa? Good, because it’s finally tea’s time to shine and we know just the place for you to get your hands on the perfect brew. London’s coffee scene has exploded in recent years, but a tea revolution is taking place; it’s time we started to treat the nation’s favourite drink appropriately. And with over 165 million cups of tea being consumed in the UK every day, it’s crazy how tea only comes into its own with scones and finger sandwiches. Meet Emilie Holmes; entrepreneur, tea connoisseur and founder of Good and Proper Tea. Fed up of being unable to […]

A taste of Brazil in Stoke Newington

Think Brazil and you probably think Olympics, nuts, football, beauty treatments (sorry but it’s true) and the carnival, what you probably don’t think about is Stoke Newington. Stoke Newington…Brazil…Brazil…Stoke Newington, the two don’t really go together. Or so you think – because you are actually wrong. How? Because this month Stoke Newington restaurant Victory Mansion is launching their new Chef Vs Food monthly pop ups where a world class chef takes on a different cuisine, cooking up a four course feast for a rather tasty £35. Kicking things off will be Ramael Scully, co-author and executive chef of Ottolenghi’s best-selling […]

Cocktails and Ceviche at Asia de Cuba

We love fusion. The best of both worlds when it comes to dining – we love places that commit to a single cuisine but for those days we’re just feeling a little indecisive, a Moroccan kick to spice up our French food does the trick. Or what about a plate of sushi alongside a margarita? Welcome to the world of Asia de Cuba, the Chino-Latino dining experience who, together with Havana Club, have created a unique cocktail and ceviche pairing menu to belatedly celebrate their bar relaunch. In addition to an extensive list of spirits – we counted 34 different […]

Boulestin’s New Menu

Boulestin’s Head Chef, Elliot Spurdle is a force to be reckoned with, especially given the fact that he is just 23. Most of us at that age have probably mastered cheese on toast and perhaps a good Bolognese, but the French restaurant’s new five course tasting menu showcases just how good Spurdle is. The evening menu which launches on the 12th April will feature dishes such as miso-glazed quail breasts with a spiced coconut emulsion; confit of egg yolk, wild mushroom consommé, wild asparagus, salt baked celeriac with truffles and grilled octopus with rhubarb, blood orange, beetroot and watercress. Of […]
