The InteReview: Sophia Money-Coutts vs Adam Handling, Chelsea

"Sophia Money-Coutt's voice is the sort of low alto that dogs and men obey, unexpectedly giving way to frequent giggles and a wit sharper than those Japanese knives that people go on about". We catch up with her at Adam Handling, Chelsea to chat about her new book, sex and her dead dog...

The Gherkin Proves It Still Has A Whole Load Of Sex Appeal…

If panoramic views are your bag, then enter The Gherkin. A force to be reckoned with, London’s very own Empire State building and the subject of much debate – does it really look like a gherkin, or is it more of a rocket, cucumber or perhaps phallic-like… anyway, whatever your interpretation, The Gherkin is a sexy, stalwart London pin-up girl and visiting it is always a restaurant bucketlister. Journey up the iconic landmark to floor 39 and you’ll at once become enveloped in city skyline, stars and the blinks and flashes of lights near and afar. The Searcys restaurant itself, […]

The New Gordon Ramsay Restaurant We’re Obsessed With RIGHT NOW!

Gordon Ramsay’s latest opening, Lucky Cat, caused quite the stir when it opened in Grosvenor Square this summer and so, of course, we had to check it out… There’s a new kid on the block. The gilded streets of Mayfair have long played host to the nation’s best pan-Asian eateries and Lucky Cat takes the baton with style. A shrine of plush banquettes, mirrored ceilings and low lighting, the sophisticated eatery is dressed-to-the-nines, and so are its clientele. The restaurant offers up an extensive menu juxtaposed with a theme that meanders seductively between Asian eating house and the late-night lounges […]

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 […]

Enoteca Rosso Is Kensington’s Very Own Wine Tardis…

Enoteca Rosso; once I’d wrapped my head around the name, I wrapped my lips around a whole lot of wine glasses. This chic Italian doesn’t let you leave hungry and is a pasta strand away from guests having to sleep in the restaurant from carb overload. The fine food and fare comes with a side dish of charming staff with engrossing tales of their heritage at their helm, all of which can be enjoyed whilst sipping a Tempranillo. The spacious Kensington restaurant delights with its wine bottle lined walls, best described as being like a Scandi-style cellar. Imaginative Italian food […]

Hey There Hot-Tea! Take A Trip To The Mystifying Mariage Freres

Quite frankly, I love tea. Every morning I simply must have an Earl Grey (I know, how pooosh), otherwise I struggle. I’m not the biggest coffee drinker, so tea is my go-to, be it minty, fruity, loose leaf, tea bag heavy, I’m all over the stuff, and I am that person who takes teabags in their suitcase when going on holiday. No shame. And, it seems I’m not alone in my love of tea, it’s thought that in Britain we drink 165 million cups of tea a day (however, I’m not sure how they work this out, sounds a bit 1984 […]

The Soho Brunch Spot We Can’t Stop Waffling On About

Oh Old Compton Brasserie, you had me at brunch! If you know anything about London’s restaurant scene, you know their brunch game has to be hella strong in order to keep the punters coming back for more. I mean, seriously, every other day there seems to be a new brunch menu inviting brunch lovers in with their tempting bottomless bellini offerings or a mighty fine break-y style feast. And, I for one say, keep ’em blooming coming! As it was the last Saturday of the summer, I decided to hop on the Piccadilly line over to Leicester Square to try […]

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 […]
