We Review: by CHLOE London

What: Super popular, American, fast food, vegan restaurant (a mouthful I know), by CHLOE, has landed in London! It’s worth noting (for me) that ‘by CHLOE’ is the correct name and not an ongoing grammar mistake. New? by CHLOE is brand spanking new, it opened at the beginning of February in Covent Garden which made it the first international restaurant for the group who has 8 others in USA. Where? 34-43 Russell Street, Covent Garden WC2B 5HA www.eatbychloe.com On the menu: The menu is a mix up of all the best comfort foods you can think from fish and chips to […]

We Review: Santa Maria Fitzrovia

What? The award-winning pizzeria, that started life off in a teeny tiny site in Ealing, has now made it to the magic number with the launch of their third restaurant, Santa Maria Fitzrovia. New? Brand, spanking, can still smell the paint, new. Following on from a two-week soft launch, they officially opened on Valentine’s Day. Wise move, seeing as for most of us, pizza is our true bae. Where?

We Review: Mac & Wild Great Titchfield Street

What? Think Scottish food and you most likely think of haggis, battered Mars Bar, Irn Bru and tatties, but just as we know that there is more to English food than fish and chips and sausage and mash; Mac & Wild, is a Scottish restaurant that will take you on a journey to the Scottish highlands via the finest wild venison, game and seafood. New? Nope, the first Mac & Wild opened in the autumn of 2016, it was soon followed by a pop-up in Devonshire Square, that went permanent last year. Where? The original Mac & Wild can be […]

We Review: Brunch at Coal Rooms

What? Winning over my heart last year as one of my favourite restaurants, I returned to Peckham to visit Coal Rooms again and this time it was to stuff myself silly with bacon sandwiches and eggs. New? It opened last summer, but the brunch is new and as we know everyone loves brunch, especially a new brunch so I had to check it out. Served on a Saturday from 11am, this is a brunch for those who like a lie in.  Where? Right next to Peckham Station, Coal Room has made its home in the Grade II former ticket office which was […]

We Review: Hankies Marble Arch

What: Hankies is a culture clash of Indian street food meets high-end luxury; the street food is created by chef and Hankies founder Anirudh Arora while the luxury is provided by the surroundings of Montcalm Hotel in Marble Arch. New? Hankies, who gets its name from the roomali roti they serve folded into ‘hankies’, is brand new after opening in January 2018. Where? 61 Upper Berkeley Street, Marylebone W1H 7PP www.hankies.restaurant On the menu: This is not your typical Indian restaurant, the only dishes I recognise at first glance are chicken tikka and dhal. The menu features dishes like crispy ‘gold’ cod […]

We Review: Four Degree

What? For some the draw to Four Degree will be the fact that it is the UK’s first Macallan Whisky lounge, for others it will be its Japanese/modern European cuisine and for others, the art exhibits. New? Yes, it opened at the end of last year  Where? With views out on to the Thames, you’ll find Four Degree at 2C St George Wharf, SW8 2LE, www.fourdegree.co.uk The Look: The bar takes centre stage at Four Degree, with striking glass pendants hanging over it and Japanese statues adorning it.

We Review: The Cheese Bar

What: The name does a pretty good job at summing what you can expect from The Cheese Bar; it’s a lot of cheese. Get it from all countries in all forms, from raw chunks to gooey deliciousness. There’s no body shaming here, however it comes served is beautiful in our eyes. New? Just shy of its 1-year anniversary, The Cheese Bar opened at the end of March 2017 after a successful crowdfunding campaign, (reaching his funding target of £130,000 in just 5 days). Where? Unit 93, North Yard, Camden Market, NW1 8AP www.thecheesebar.com On the menu: Cheese. A lot of cheese. […]
