Tel Aviv Café Culture in Hampstead

What? Though I’m a southerner who lives (very) east and works (very) west, you’d be mistaken to think I’m a fully- fledged, compass-conquering Londoner. In fact, there is a very big, north-shaped gap in my familiarity – it’s one of the main things that attracted me to Café Hampstead.

Grab A Plate… At Plate

What: A Friday night post work-week automatically paints a cheesy grin across the face. However, this particular Friday I was in full-on Cheshire cat mode. Off to Shoreditch I went, to Plate restaurant – the latest offering from chef Arnaud Stevens, a man whose resumé would be the envy of quite...

A Middle Eastern Must-Visit: Café Loren

What: Quite frankly, something completely different to your average breakfast or brunch indulgence. Ever craved some shakshuka in the morning? Well, I hadn’t either, but I think I might in future after this taste-test. The word is actually synonymous with breakfast in the Middle East and, after...

We Have Cocktails at Fulham’s Coolest Flat: The Little Blue Door

What: After the success of Little Yellow Door the (fictional) housemates have moved out and moved on, going on to move into new flats and one housemate pitched up in Fulham, ready to open his house to Fulham revellers in need of a place to drink cocktails, and drink those cocktails until late...

The Afternoon Tea That Swaps Sandwiches for Sushi

What: If you ever have that moment where you think that you’d really like some sushi, but you’d also really like a scone and you don’t know which to choose (granted it might not be the most common thought but I bet it happens) then I’m here to tell you that you no longer to make that...

A Tea Without Any Gimmicks: Corinthia’s New Afternoon Tea

What: Thinking of a theme? Chances are there is a tea for that. London’s restaurants have taken afternoon tea and have been running with it for years. ‘It’s summer? We’ll make a summer tea’; ‘Guy Fawkes night? Stick a firework in a scone’; ‘Let’s add in alcohol, let’s serve it...

We Review: Galvin La Chapelle’s Vegetarian Menu

What: French restaurants tend to be notoriously troublesome for vegetarians, let alone vegans, but Galvin La Chapelle has broken the mould by creating not only a special vegetarian menu but one for our normally unloved vegans. New? As May brought us the glowing orb of light and heat from the sky...

We Review: Maison du Mezzé

What? Mezze is Persian for ‘tasting’. It’s also the name of Leicester Square’s latest addition, Maison du Mezzé, and if you’ve not been to the Middle East then mezze really is appropriate, this restaurant really is a tasting plattter of the region, a smattering of...

We Review: Broadleaf

What? It’s not that I’m against sports, just that I find them impenetrable. It’s up there with Game of Thrones, I’m sure I’d love it if I’d been there at the start, but now it’s too complicated to try and get involved. Also, people crowing ‘We beat...
