Lorne is a classic example of a hidden gem. No really, trying to find it had me firing up City Mapper, Waze and Google Maps simultaneously, as I made my way snail-like to 76 Wilton Road. This was undoubtedly down to my abysmal navigation skills, but Lorne is actually quite unsuspecting located sweetly on a bustling street in Victoria. The restaurant, which opened in 2017, is the brainchild of a head sommelier and a chef from the Square and three Michelin starred menu. With impressively bulging CV’s at their helm, hopes were high as I sandwiched myself into a orange-coloured […]
The man that’s bored of Essex is bored of life. Or maybe he’s just bored of Sugar Hut; it’s tricky to tell under all that fake tan. But if the white van drive between Colchester and Billericay is getting too monotonous, fear not, there’s a solution, and it’s not Canvey...
When you get to spend one of the summer’s warmest Sunday afternoons (this year!) sipping on unlimited Bellini’s, you know you’re in for a good’un. Which is exactly how I spent last Sunday, piling up my plate with over 40 veggie dishes, and briskly knocking back as many Bellini’s as possible without a care in the world… And, oh boy, was it a treat! Thanks to tibits’ new bottomless brunch marking itself a permanent fixture on the weekend menu, Londoner’s too can dive head first into the Bellini’s and Prosecco, yippee! Arriving a little late for our table after soaking up […]
Walking into LIBRARY, nuzzled into London’s iconic theatreland just off Trafalgar Square, is quite theatrical in itself. In Alice In Wonderland, Through The Looking Glass style, you’re transported from streets paved with suit-wearers and clumps of tourists to a quiet reception area with an odour of slight muskiness and history, lined with an eclectic range of books, new and old. The sole partition between worlds being the elegant, charmingly blue front doors. LIBRARY London is best described as ‘quirky’. It’s a members’ club and hotel that would impress minds like Lewis Carroll and Wes Anderson with drama, enlightenment, escape, nourishment […]
Firing up London food enthusiasm with its charred smokiness and grilling methods is the robata grill; robata being a new buzz word on the food scene it seems. And, whilst unpredictable smatterings of rain are leading to our summer BBQ dreams to be quashed, the robata grill has taken the reigns on grilled food, with restaurants inclusive of Thousand Knives, Bala Baya, Meraki and more putting the robata on our radars. Short for robatayaki (meaning “fireside grilling”), the robata is a Japanese creation that uses wood or charcoal to create a smoking hot, glowing burn that produces sensational flavours and […]
Riding House Café; I’d heard the name drifting off many a London dwellers tongue but I myself was yet to visit. The time to go seemed apt upon an interview with the new Made in Chelsea cast, all of which name dropped the Fitzrovia fave. Plus, a peruse on Instagram informed me that Radio 1 DJ Greg James and entourage had attended the evening before to sit snug in a booth and chat music. So, off I trundled through a bustling Oxford Street, the crowds reflective of warmer climes boosting the capital’s population with enthusiastic bag shoppers and camera snappers. Riding […]
When I was younger, searching for hearty vegan junk-food that was going to leave me satisfied was hard to come by. If even possible. Fast-forward to 2019, where veganism is at its height and continues to skyrocket each and every day, with new options cropping up around every corner. Yes, I’m talking to you veggie bean burger – move out of the way, your days are well and truly over. An independent company making its own dent in the revolution is Biff’s Jack Shack. They’re on their own mission to create totally filthy yet entirely indulgent vegan junk food. Armed with one of the world’s […]
Bocconcini means small balls of cheese in Italian – the plural? Bocconcino. So, with delicious food offerings being at the helm of this food journey, it was looking like a Mayfair good’un. Bocconcino oozes high-end; from its central Mayfair location just a tumble away from Green Park and The Ritz, and its sunglasses-wearing clientele who duck in and out of the restaurant inconspicuously, signalling that this is the spot where art curators, influencers, footballers and the likes pop in for their Italian pick-me-up. I, however, was somewhat less fearing of being papped upon entry and headed into the airy restaurant […]
Even as a self-proclaimed Londoner when I conjure up images of the big smoke Leicester Square oft makes an appearance in my mind, alongside its rolling red carpet, M&M World & buzzing casino. It’s a total London staple and an absolute babe of a spot for a night out, especially when you fancy embracing your inner tourist, if only for the night. A quick Google of Victory House led me to comprehend that it held a super central location but I had no idea just how much so. Rushing hurriedly off the tube in Friday night haste, I found myself […]
The Game Bird at The Stafford London knows how to do an afternoon tea properly. Their latest afternoon tea looks to their home of St James for inspiration. Partnering with some of the highest-quality independent boutiques and delis in the area they’ve created an afternoon tea that takes you on an edible journey of the hotel’s surroundings. When did I decide to go and stuff myself silly on sandwiches? On the day of the London marathon of course, so as weary runners much more deserved of carbs than me hobbled from the Mall up to the tube at Green Park […]
