Goode & Wright Review

At first glance, Goode & Wright is in a cracking location on the Portobello Road not from the Electric. The site is small but cosy and the restaurant is styled as a French bistro drawing in a mixed crowd from the Notting Hill area, giving it a fun and relaxed feel.  Already well known as a brunching haunt for hungover weekenders (I hear the chef’s special, Eggs Benedict, is a “must try”), the management team (who also own the site) have been ramping up the dinner menu and will soon be serving cocktails in the evening by the Talented Mr […]

Valentina Fine Foods Review

Valentina Fine Foods is a series of Italian restaurants and delis that has recently launched a new branch in Chiswick, we headed down to check it out. From the street Valentina Fine Foods looks like a café and deli with all kinds of authentic produce lining the walls, it’s only after walking in that you realise a smart restaurant sits at the back. Even further back is the open plan kitchen which serves classic Italian dishes, check your table for the list of changing specials which aren’t on the menu. The specials when we went were Mussels to start, served […]

Spice Market, Sushi Bar Review

Almost equidistant from the tourist hot spots that are Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus and located just seconds away from the bright lights of Chinatown, lies Spice Market. Having heard it described as an upmarket South Asian restaurant, walking into the establishment, it certainly seemed to fit the bill. Furnished in a dark wood with golden low lighting, the interior appears to glow and the multitude of glass and mirrored surfaces adds to the twinkling effect. It was busy, especially so for a Wednesday night, with a number of diners and a few drinking parties enjoying the music played by […]

The Georgian Restaurant: Review

It was a Sunday afternoon and we were in need of being taken care of and a little indulgence, so we promptly took ourselves off to The Georgian restaurant at Harrods who have recently launched a new lunch menu. Set on the 4th floor, The Georgian, (which has recently been refurbished by Christopher Guy Harrison) is spacious, opulent and sumptuous; chandeliers and regal looking velvet wing back chairs without being overwhelming or stuffy. Charming waiters tended to the guests whilst the pianist soothed everyone’s back to school Sunday afternoon feelings with live music (and 6 renditions of Happy Birthday). The menu […]

Salmontini Le Resto Review

Salmontini le Resto recently opened in London, making it the first European venue from the Salmontini brand. Situated in Belgravia, the focus on the food is salmon with a selection of cold and hot salmon specialties including an extensive array of sushi and sashimi. The restaurant itself has a great décor and blends in well with the affluent neighbourhood; guests are invited to sit at the bar before being seated in the adjacent restaurant. After we were seated at our table, tell-tale signs of the newness of the restaurant appeared as a host of different waiters that came over in […]

The Four Thieves Review

I am proud to admit, there is nothing that I enjoy more than a good gin and tonic, (pop in a cucumber slice and you’ll make my week), which is why I knew I was in for a good night when I headed to The Four Thieves pub in Battersea. The newly opened haunt, which is quickly becoming renound for its many combinations of gin and fresh ale, houses its own brewery and in the near future, will be extending this to create its own fresh gin. It is safe to say I had strong expectations before I arrived and […]
