Complimentary Masterclasses at St Pancras Renaissance

You probably think of King’s Cross as a kind of no-man’s land if the only times you’re there are when you’re sprinting through the barriers to platform 3 or when sheep leisurely grazing on the tracks near Peterborough have made your 14:47 more like a 15:47. All a bit of a shame, really, when you consider the quality of restaurants in the area; German Gymnasium, Caravan, The Grain Store, Vinoteca, we could go on… But the grandest destination of them all? St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. Just seeing the beautiful red brick building has us yearning for the porter to pick up […]

Eat the Movies: Cinema Supper Club

Ever drooled at a scene in a movie? Does the pasta Julia Roberts eats in the Italian part of Eat, Pray Love give you serious carb cravings? Bridget Jones have you reaching for the Ben & Jerry’s? We bring you news of an event that combines two of our favourite things: film and food. PECKish is a supper club with a twist that serves the audience of a cult classic film a 5-course meal, inspired by the movie itself. No more on-screen food envy. Each month shows a different film – March is the turn of one of the all-time […]

Bob Bob Exchange: Press for Champagne

Leonid Shutov, the man who gave us Bob Bob Ricard and those legendary ‘Press for Champagne’ buttons, has chosen the site for his second restaurant and it’s none other than Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partner’s designed The Leadenhall Building… If that seems rather anticlimactic, then how about if we were to call it by its nickname ‘The Cheese Grater’ – you know that slanted building, the tallest in the City and the one that resembles, well a cheese grater. Opening Spring 2017 with the working title of Bob Bob Exchange or BBX the restaurant will take up residence on the […]

Urban Coterie Launch Bottomless Brunch

We’ll never tire of brunch, that meal where it is totally acceptable to drink at 11am (you couldn’t do that if you were just having breakfast), where you can eat blueberries and waffles (can’t do that at lunch) and then scrambled eggs just because you can. As we say, it’s the best. This weekend will see the launch of Urban Coterie’s new bottomless brunch which includes three courses and unlimited Mimosas. Created by Anthony Demetre and Head Chef Killian Lynch the menu will include everything from scrambled duck eggs with smoked salmon and French toast with mascarpone and blueberries to […]

An Evening of Gin: Distillery to Dinner

London pub The Lady Ottoline is joining up with the City of London Distillery to offer guests a unique evening based around our favourite spirit; gin. The city’s long and colourful history with the drink shows no signs of slowing down or falling out of favour any time soon – if gin is your tipple of choice, this is an event for you. Before you get your hands on your first G&T, guests will be led round the City of London Distillery, which is on nearby Farringdon Street. Back in the height of London’s gin obsession there was a gin […]

7 Courses, 7 Top London Chefs

If ‘7 courses’ doesn’t grab your attention, I don’t know what will. If, however, you’re not quite ready to sign on the dotted line and hand your money over, let us tell you a little more. FoodCycle is a British charity which makes use of spare kitchen spaces and surplus food to create nutritious meals for people living in food poverty. In a city with thousands of restaurants it’s all too easy to forget food poverty is very real and a lunchtime visit to Pret is often the closest we get to donating surplus food (Pret donate unsold food at the […]

BAO To Open in Fitzrovia

If you can, cast your mind forward to May, when we’ll have light evenings, warm temperatures (don’t quote me on that), the cold, dark winter will be a distant memory and the second BAO will open. Having opened their first permanent restaurant in Soho after having a market stall in Netil Market, Erchen Chang and siblings Shing and Wai Ting Chung will be joining the ever popular Fitzrovia as the second BAO will launch on Windmill Street. Occupying a bigger site than the first means that the new restaurant will have an extended menu and a new bar element.  Designed […]

Number 90’s 4 Day Birthday Party

If we could have a 4-day birthday celebration we absolutely would. Day one would be an all-day warm-up; we’re envisaging friends, family, drinks, live music and ice cream. A dry-ice ice cream van to be precise… Although that’s the only thing that would be dry – lots of cocktails are a necessity. OK, OK, this all sounds amazing but it isn’t completely a figment of our imagination, it’s Hackney Wick bar and restaurant, Number 90’s 2nd birthday extravaganza. Turning 2 is something to celebrate, so why not go all out with four days of partying? Each day has a slightly […]

An Evening With ex-England Rugby Captain Martin Johnson

The past few weekends have been spent in the pub or in front of the TV (willingly or unwillingly), admiring (the skills of) rugby players from England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, France and Italy battling it out to be crowned Six Nations Champions. The historic Calcutta Cup has already been fought (that’s England v Scotland for rugby rookies) and next week it’s Wales’ turn to take on the boys on their home turf; Twickenham. Beaufort House showed live screenings of the World Cup last year so we know they take rugby seriously. Next Friday (11th March), they are hosting an evening […]

Perfectly pink beef, rich gravy, crisp roast potatoes, smooth… jazz music? OK we’re listening. Already a renowned destination for live music, Boisdale has everything from Soul Fridays to Latin Party Night, with Queen tributes and Suspiciously Elvis Unplugged in between. And, as well as spicing up your Friday night, they want to add a little soul to your Sunday lunchtime too with swinging classical jazz alongside a full Sunday roast, duck fat roast potatoes included. 18-hour slow roast rib of Aberdeenshire beef will compete with the live band to be crowned star of the show, and the three course lunch […]
