Victoria’s Street Food Market Opens With 12 Foodie Favourites

Late night revellers may no longer be falling out of Pacha, but as the saying goes as one door closes another opens and the abandoned arcaded bays of Victoria’s Terminus Place that once housed the super club, will be reopening next week as the next Market Hall (following on from Fulham earlier this year). Yes, London might not be a party capital, but it is certainly the food capital. Since 1909 the space has been home to an Edwardian shopping arcade, a restaurant, Pacha and now it’ll be home to eleven kitchens, a coffee shop, three bars spread over three […]

Gymkhana Chef Goes It Alone With New Soho Venture

We’re already going berserk for Berenjak. The middle eastern weather may have passed, but a little corner of Soho will be bringing the look, feel and vibe of Tehran to right to Romilly Street this October.. Berenjak is the brainchild of founder and chef Kian Samyani, who aims to recereate the classic hole-in-the-wall kabab houses that line the streets of Tehran.

London’s 1st Restaurant Dedicated to Avocado Opens

Instagram, unicorns, matcha lattes and cactuses, nothing quite matches the ultimate millennial icon: the avocado. Yes, the humble avocado has found itself at the centre of all that is right and supposedly all that is wrong with us millennials. We’ll never be buying houses because we eat too much of it on toast, but we’ll have great skin thanks to its good fats. Swings and roundabouts. Anyway, why are we talking about avocado? Because London’s first restaurant dedicated to the fruit will be opening at this month and we’re feeling #blessed. Simply named, Avobar, the restaurant (filled with living plant […]

Gazelle Restaurant Leaps into Mayfair

Good minds think alike, especially if you’re chef Rob Roy Cameron and drinks specialist Tony Conigliaro. The two hospitality hotshots are set to open their Mayfair restaurant Gazelle next week, wrapped in an Edwardian building brimming with personality in Mayfair. If you’ve ever tuned into a spot of David Attenborough and witnessed a stint on gazelles, you’ll know they’re a rather sleek and elegant creature. In championing this vibe and corresponding with its name, the restaurant too will play host to a private members club vibe, set amongst two natural light flooded storeys. As owner Tony affirms: “When we were […]

Camillo Benso Proves Milan Isn’t All About Fashion

There’s a new kid on the Mayfair block, and we’re intrigued. Milan: best known as a fast-paced metropolis that champions a frilled frock, bold boot, and over-all some very coveted fashion. However, the food is also worth a sample and this is something restaurant Camillo Benso sure does recognise as it brings Milan’s dining style to Mayfair. Everything’s that bit more exciting with a bit of sibling rivalry thrown in though, which is why we’re interested to see how this new Milanese hot-spot will compare to big sister in Milan. If you haven’t tried Amaro yet, Camillo Benso will give […]
