Galvin At Windows Just Got A Whole Lot Sexier…

Found on the 28th floor of the Park Lane Hilton, Galvin at Windows is widely considered to be one of the city’s best hotel restaurants. Its popularity unsurprisingly stems from the floor to ceiling glass windows that open it up to the London skyline, as well as the equally alluring presence of dishy general manager Fred Sirieix (when he isn’t moonlighting on Channel 4’s First Dates, that is). Following a successful thirteen years at the top of the restaurant scene, Galvin at Windows has recently decided to take its offering to new heights and revamp its bar. Enter 10º, romantically […]

SUSHISAMBA City: The Restaurant You Need To Maki Time For…

We’re about to make you soy hungry, so if you’re stuck at the desk for the next few hours then avert your eyes… SUSHISAMBA City was my location for the night last week, as I zipped up 39 floors (eek, not one for those with vertigo) to arrive at its sushi-filled doors. Upon entry, you’re elevated to new heights, figuratively and literally, submerged in 360-degree city views that span across to Canary Wharf, the Shard and the Gherkin. The space is a tapestry of outdoor-in elements; the structural orange tree on the west terrace being the SUSHISAMBA staple that delights Instagram […]

The Raw Food Restaurant That Should Be On Your Radar

On a balmy summer night I made my way to Victoria to try a menu that wouldn’t normally be my bag. Yet, after once trying a tarantula cocktail at Sea Container’s Dandelion bar, it’s fair to say I’m typically forthright when it comes to food and drink. That’s not to say this menu was of a nature as eccentric and otherworldly as my cocktail escapade, but rather it was a 100% vegetarian menu, of which I’m not used to trying. If you’ve never heard of the M Restaurant family then I’ll eat my hat (if I have room post-meal). The […]

Say Salaam Namaste To One Of London’s Best Indian Restaurants

Tucked away down a nondescript side street in the heart of Bloomsbury lies an equally nondescript restaurant. It would be quite easy to walk past Salaam Namaste - in fact, from the outside the only feature that might turn your head is the smattering of awards and recommendations adorned in the front window.

The Staycation Destination That’s A Hit With The Royals

The news cycle may resound to the soundtrack of Harry and Meghan, but we’ll always have a place in our hearts for ol’ Wills and Kate. Three cheers for the couple who paved the way for the ongoing royal renaissance, who defined Sloane Ranger chic for a new generation of toffs and whose relationship we followed every twist and turn (and break up) of like it was some kind of Dawson’s Creek with tiaras. So in honour of our future king and queen (and for the owl – read on…), I took the train up from London town to spend […]

We Visited Cliveden House, Meghan Markle’s Favourite Spot For A Sleepover

I once shook Justin Trudeau's hand. It was awesome. Aside from this, moments of 'feeling cool' are very few and far between for me. Mainly because I am implausibly clumsy and spend my life channeling Hugh Grant and his hangdog stuttering in nearly every social situation. And yes, I have said "oopsy daisy" far too many times.

The Restaurant That’s Forkin’ Amazing!

In the heart of London’s Square Mile next to Monument Station and a hop, skip and jump from London Bridge you’ll find the newest venture from Farmer J. By day you’ll find their fieldtray favourites, but by night, it turns into an all new restaurant, The Fancy Fork. Spearheaded by Shuli Wilmer, who spent five years working at London hotspot The River Café, it’s clear she’s brought together her experience with the flavours of her Israeli upbringing. The menu champions seasonal produce with dishes like zucchini flowers stuffed with ricotta, basil and olive paste and grilled whole fish with smashed roasted […]

Cinnamon Kitchen’s Tantalising Tropical Terrace Is Totally Terrific

We often find ourselves wishing for winter in summer, and wishing for summer in winter. Yet, hot, barmy summer evenings, where cocktails keep hands heavy and laughter bounces from rooftop terrace to rooftop terrace is why these golden, sun-hued moments are what we really live for.
