Ottolenghi Set to Open His Largest Restaurant Yet in Fitzrovia

Ottolenghi has been a house hold name now for years, and his empire has more than doubled in size since it all began in 2002. Once upon a time Ottolenghi was a pastry chef, with no comprehension of the English’s traditional meals. What was the appeal? So often our dishes lacked flavour, seasoning and most importantly imagination. Before things get too harsh and we start berating ourselves, let’s just take a moment. England is a country where the only things we grow particularly well are potatoes…and weeds. So, the fact that one our staples is bangers and mash, is not […]

Mindful City: Laughter Yoga, Beyonce Barre and Meditation

Living in London is great, always something to do, always someone to see, always somewhere new to eat; but in the great rush that is London life we can also be left feeling drained and exhausted. This is when we need to take stock and practice self-care and mindfulness. After all our mental health is every bit as important as a physical health. D&D London’s latest campaign Mindful City, will see its London restaurants host a whole series of events, talks and workshops throughout January until the 11th February, all designed for us to slow down and appreciate ourselves and […]

Dry January, the first challenge of the year. If you’re attempting it, then hats off to you, if you manage it then we’re seriously impressed.

London’s 1st Bloody Mary Cafe

Have we got some Bloody good news for you! Yes that’s right it’s so good, it’s bloody, and not the “let’s take a trip to A&E” type bloody either.

We say it’s here, but only for two days, the most important two days of the year however. The weekend where every man and woman is sporting some sort of festive get up.

Pure Filth At The Tate Modern

We were thrilled to hear about the popup coming to Tate Modern, it’s Pure Filth. Get your minds out of the gutter, Pure Filth isn’t what you’re thinking, it’s a new food concept combining decadent cuisine with truly nutritious ingredients, healthy junk food if you will. Timed to coincide with the upcoming Amedeo Modigliani exhibition at the museum, nutritionist Rosemary Ferguson and chef Gizzi Erskine will be launching the popup over 3 weekends at the end of November and start of December and we’re genuinely excited about it. After all, junk food that’s actually good for you is the holy […]

Oxford Street Is Being Pedestrianised

Oxford Street, the most famous street in London and yet the one that most Londoners tend to avoid – why? Because it’s just.so.busy. You’ve got the four million people visiting each week, the cyclists and the taxis. Not for much longer though. This morning Sadiq Khan announced that large parts of Oxford Street could be pedestrianised by December 2018. At the moment, the plan is to have a traffic-free zone from Oxford Circus to Orchard Street and this doesn’t just include buses and taxis but also bikes. There are some exceptions being proposed such as taxis being able to cross […]

FloatFit Yoga Arrives At The Haymarket Hotel

You may remember back in 2016 seeing videos over your Facebook feed of people in their gym gear trying to remain on boards in the water? Well, that is what we call FloatFit Yoga and there are classes hitting the Haymarket Hotel thanks to Aqua Physical. When you think of doing yoga poses, they can be quite difficult on the ground let alone on a floating exercise mat in swimming pool. Recipe for disaster comes to our mind or maybe the giggles of seeing your fitness buddies, fall into the water. However, it actually brings many benefits besides your stomach […]

Workout Woes? Be:Fit London is back!

Finding it hard to get motivated, stay on track, or even be bothered to workout? You aren’t alone. Apparently, only one in five women in the UK do enough exercise to stay fit and healthy. This is due to a number of reasons, from continued self-esteem issues, to a lack of non-competitive environments for women to exercise in. Whilst many of us talk about changing, it’s time to actually do something about it. That’s where Be: FIT festival comes in. Aiming to break down these limitations, the festival creates a space for women to come together in solidarity; to support and […]
