High Spirits at the Paramount, Centre Point:

Porn Star Martini

Naughty Afternoon Tea at the Paramount, Centre Point: There are parts of London which seem to be semi-permanent building sites ; with no natural sense of direction I dread having to find my way through the scaffolding lined streets, usually bereft of any landmarks.  While the area around Tottenham Court Road station has been in […]

Beyond Boulangerie – An Introduction to Le Restaurant de PAUL

Paul Camembert

Le Restaurant de PAUL- Bringing a bit more of Paris to London: When Paul first open its doors in London, it was to sell artisan French breads.  The sort of bread that up until then you could only get in really good French restaurants, or when you visited France. My teenage summers spent in the […]

About London – Berwick Street, Soho Part I – Ember Yard

Ember Yard

Shopping and Eating in Berwick Street, Soho – Ember Yard: Ember Yard, near the Oxford Street end of Berwick Street is part of the Salt Yard Group.  I know and love Opera Tavern, a great place for tapas and a glass of wine or sherry and more recently I popped into Salt Yard itself, the […]

Hawaiian Cuisine at Pond Dalston

Pond - Sambal Black Cod

Bringing Hawaii to Dalston – Pond Restaurant. Guest Feature by Natalie York: Forget grass skirts and pineapple pizzas, Pond has arrived to bring a new image of Hawaii to Dalston. Heading along to their opening party I confess I knew pretty much nothing about what to expect from this new offering from the blokes behind […]

Bottomless Brunch @ One Canada Square. Guest post by Lisa Hooper Brunch is an American tradition which seems to be finding its way into more English restaurants these days.  Brunch feels a little decadent to me and a lovely weekend treat, so I was delighted to have the chance to review the Bottomless Brunch at […]

Drunch – The Option of Healthy Lunch

Drunch - Healthy Teas and Smoothies

Drunch – Where Healthy Drinks Mitigate the Steak and Chips: Just around the corner from Bond Street, Drunch is the sort of place you should know about for a shoppers lunch.  While the menu is concise, it’s a well balanced mixture of salads, fresh grills and seafood.  And, there’s a great range of juices, cold […]

Champagne and Fromage – Brixton Village

Champagne and Fromage Snail Tartine

Taking Champagne to Brixton. Perhaps the most happening food-centric market in London at the moment is at Brixton.  Londoners love edgy, uncommercialised places where they might just have found something special before their friends.  And if Borough Market is so last year now then Covent Garden is just another tourist trap.  Head South to Brixton […]

Clockjack Oven – Updated Rotisserie Chicken in Soho

chicken up close and personal!

An Easy and Almost Healthy Chicken Lunch at Clockjack Oven, Soho, London: On reflection, it is obvious that the ‘Rotisserie’ is one of the oldest methods of cooking meat and poultry.  Images of cavemen sitting round a camp fire or medieval halls with massive fireplaces complete with rotisserie spit come to mind.  Even roasting jacks […]

Silk & Grain – The City Aged Cocktails

silk and grain - cocktails and bar snacks

Silk & Grain  - Cocktails with a Difference: Finding a way to differentiate bars and restaurants in London is increasingly difficult.  New openings every week – each with their own unique twist.  Ironically when I was invited to review Silk & Grain in the heart of the City, I thought it was going to be […]

Din Din The Persian Cafe That Wants You To Get A Taste of Home

Din din Vida Tayebi

Din Din Cafe – Home Cooking Persian Style: Walking into Vida Tayebi’s recently opened Cafe Din Din, my first impression is mixed.  Squeakily clean, vibrant colours and shelves stocked with little pots.  It looks a bit like Itsu or Pret.  There’s more space to sit and eat, but it’s obvious this is somewhere that is […]
