The New French Joint Opening In Primrose Hill

Ferme the front door! There’s a new restaurant coming to Primrose Hill and we’re kinda excited about it. Step forward La Ferme (the farm)! Opened initially as a market stall and then a Farringdon restaurant by a precociously young 20-year-old François Guerin in 2012, La Ferme is a medley of French seasonal cooking and ingredients. The young chef has teamed up with his step brother Guillaume Dunos who will Head Chef the new venture. Dunos has worked in restaurants including Paris’s Gouquets, Prince de Galles and Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme so should be well suited to this new venture. And what […]

London’s Tastiest Ramen Restaurant Strikes Again

‘Here, have some ramen’, why thank you, thats very Kanada Ya! Kanada-Ya launched in Yukuhashi, Japan, in 2008, the brainchild of Kanada Kazuhiro and was an instant hit and it wasn’t long before he decided to take the show on the road, to Hong Kong and the UK. In 2014 it arrived in Covent Garden and was as popular here as back home, with Kazuhiro opening a further restaurant in Haymarket and, as of 22nd March, on Islington’s Upper Street. The authentic Tonkotsu ramen specialist uses an incredibly time-consuming process to perfect their ramen and as a result it has […]

Gilly’s Fry Bar – Northern Chippy Meets Japanese Tempura

Kill us now, it’s never going to get any better than this: chip shop fish and chips, curry sauce and cocktails. Gilly’s Fry Bar arrives in Finsbury Park this week and it promises to be a fantastic, if unlikely, combo of chippy and highball cocktails with an Asian twist. Modelled on restauranteur Neil Gill’s memories of Tyneside chip shops, the restaurant will feature classics like cod and scraps but fused with the delicate art of Japanese tempura cooking. Running with the Northern obsession with dousing chips with curry sauce Gill has devised a menu combining the traditional katsu curry with […]

Gabeto Comes to Camden

When it comes to food, Camden Market is not short of places to eat, but the team behind its latest restaurant are hoping that they will be able to rival the best that Shoreditch and Fitzrovia has to offer. Opening on the 6th July in one of the Victorian stable blocks, Gabeto (which is means ‘our house’ in Spanish) will see, former Chiltern Firehouse chef, Lee Andrews heading up the kitchen to create a menu that brings together British ingredients with Latin flavours. Tacos, rare-breed steaks and small plates including the likes of beetroot-cured salmon and chorizo Scotch eggs will make […]

The Return of The Clifton

Once the haunt of King Edward VII and his mistress, Lillie Langtry, The Clifton in St John’s Wood is reopening next week after its unexpected closure in 2013. We can’t report that there’ll be any royals necessarily, but we can tell you that it sounds like it’s going to be cracking. Back in 2007, brothers Ben and Ed Robson started running the first pub they ever drank in, The Horseshoe in Hampstead, nonchalant, this was followed by their successful Prosecco and schnitzel bar, Boopshi’s in Fitzrovia and now, they are going to be giving The Clifton a new lease of […]

Trawler Trash Opens in Islington

Trawler Trash is a new, Islington seafood restaurant making the most of the lesser known treasures of the sea, the fish that often get forgotten, like the old bargain CD section you use to get in Woolsworth where you’d find a gem, if you will. Just because it is the so-called ‘trash’ doesn’t mean that you won’t be served the best, they’ll only be serving fresh fish delivered that day (that’s why it’s closed on Monday as the trawler men don’t work then) except rather than ‘traditional’ catches you’ll find the likes of pilchards, coley, sprat, grey mullet and cray […]

London’s New Pizzeria: Quartieri

Quartieri is a Napoletana pizzeria coming to Kilburn this spring with one aim – to make the best pizzas using the finest produce from Naples. The menu will make the most of artisanal produce from independent suppliers, to start there’ll be frittura such as crocchette, arancini and bruschetta topped with buffalo mozzarella and tomato. Of course, you’re there for the pizza. The team are taking inspiration from a family recipe dating back to 1923, from the guys who brought Naples the famous Pizzeria Trianon Vomero. They’ll use flour and grain that has been milled in the traditional way, risen slowly with minimal yeast […]
