Charles Worthington Express Menu review

At The Handbook we love telling you about the best new places to eat with the hottest new menus but today we have a slightly different menu to tempt you with, the Charles Worthington’s new Express Menu especially designed for ‘time poor’ City workers.Expect the same treatments but with a chunk of time knocked off by recruiting an extra pair of hands to help. Treatments like a blow dry can be completed in 15 minutes, a colour regrowth and blow dry in an hour, and a half head of highlights and blow dry in 75 minutes. My flavour of the moment […]

M Restaurant review – what we thought

Like Madonna we are always on board with a reinvention and another iconic M, M Restaurant agrees as they have just launched their new summer RAW menu with lighter treats to keep you going in the hot months. Taking inspiration from 6 countries including Japan and Australia, the emphasis here is on meat and fish even on the RAW side of the restaurant. M Restaurant is a fantastic venue space, balancing a relaxed atmosphere with an up market vibe well. Split into the Grill dining area on the left and Raw on the right, the upstairs hosts the cocktail bar, […]

Jago Review – What We Thought

The other day finding ourselves on the hunt for supper in the Commercial Street area we decided not to be lured into the curry houses with promises of more than we could eat and drink for a mere fiver (not a good look on a Tuesday) and instead we wandered up Hanbury Street to Jago. Jago is the work of Louis Solley (former head chef at Ottolenghi), Hugo Thurston and Vinny Burke and is said to be bringing a taste of the Ashkenazi Jewish cuisine back to London with Middle Eastern and Mediterranean influences. Of course East London still has […]

Skinny rebel workout – what we thought

Oh you’ve never heard of Skinny Rebel? That’s because it’s brand spanking new and it’s about to change your whole fitness game. Created by the people behind Train Dirty, Skinny Rebel is typically geared towards women over men, and is set apart from normal training by the inclusion of an altitude mask which is worn throughout the PT session. Said mask only goes over your mouth and nose as it works to restrict the amount of oxygen you breath in. The point is to reduce oxygen levels in the air you breath and therefore circulating in your blood so the […]

Lotus review – what we thought

Traditionally Londoners tend to shy away from tourist heavy areas for their dining needs as the food quality isn’t the best and honestly, locals should know better. With this in mind I was slightly wary when I came out of Leicester Square station and only a short walk away I saw spied Lotus. Upon entry I was surprised by the décor with its stark black and silver colour scheme, definitely not the usual Indian restaurant interior. I dread to think how many courses I got through but the calories have already been digested so I can’t feel too guilty and […]

Fu Manchu review – what we thought

I was intrigued by Fu Manchu after first discovering it back in April when The Handbook covered its launch and was excited to be able to finally head down to see it in person. Fu Manchu is a trendy dim sum restaurant that popped up in the railway arches by Clapham North station. The face of the venue’s villainous namesake, Fu Manchu, looms perilously on the wall over guests as they enter, and although the venue is relatively small, the high archways give the impression of a much more spacious area.I’m not normally a fan of open brickwork but it […]

Galvin at Windows Review – what we thought

Galvin at Windows is one of 7 from the Galvin Restaurant Group but I’m going to take a stab in the dark and say it is the highest, located on the 28th floor of the London Hilton. Make sure to pick your floor before getting in the elevator to save having to get out half way up because you realised that the lift you’re in doesn’t have buttons inside it and isn’t going where you need it to. That’s just one pearl of wisdom I learnt at my trip to the Michelin star French restaurant, more to come so pens […]
