We tested out The Test Kitchen

We tested out The Test Kitchen Adam Simmonds' new concept The Test Kitchen opened in summer 2017. High end dining with Michelin-grade cuisine can be a downright fascinating thing to experience. Innovative cooking techniques, far-flung flavours and unpractical crockery galore - it’s all part of the fun. But for those who... Read more >

Tabun Kitchen Soho - London Restaurant Review

Tabun Kitchen Soho - London Restaurant Review It’s no secret that as a city London is pretty hot on decent Middle Eastern cuisine. Finding region-specific, authentic eateries however, is a slightly trickier affair. With that in mind - and taking into consideration my own unabashed passion for all-things-flatbread - you can only imagine... Read more >

STK London - 'STK Lovers Menu' Review

STK London - 'STK Lovers Menu' Review It’s not difficult to find good steak in London. In fact, it’s ridiculously easy to find good steak in London. From famed Argentinian hangouts on Broadway Market to plush and classic steakhouses in Mayfair, the choice in this city is enough to scare any cow silly. But in such a crowded... Read more >

Nirvana Kitchen Marble Arch - London Restaurant Review

Nirvana Kitchen Marble Arch - London Restaurant Review Nirvana Kitchen might sound like the type of name given to a restaurant project of a later-year rock super fan, but in reality there’s little brash or loud about this subtle foodie haven located in the Montcalm London Marble Arch. Instead of iconic rifts and hordes of one-track groupies, this... Read more >

Aquavit London - Nordic Afternoon Tea Review

Aquavit London  - Nordic Afternoon Tea Review I was with a friend recently who had the temerity to suggest he couldn’t find any decent, quintessentially British afternoon teas to take his visiting Italian mother to during her trip to London. His poor mum. There are loads. From swanky restaurants to literally every half decent hotel in... Read more >

Brasserie Blanc Tower Bridge - London Restaurant Review

Brasserie Blanc Tower Bridge  - London Restaurant Review Being originally from Essex, I only really find myself knocking about Tower Hill when I’m heading back to visit my family via The Essex Portal Fenchurch Street Station. And though I usually spend this time dodging tourists and desperately trying to avoid eye contact with anyone I might have... Read more >

Heliot Steak House - London Brunch Review

Heliot Steak House - London Brunch Review I know it, they know it and you know it: there’s never been a better time to brunch in London. From cutesy corners in Kensington to industrial warehouse spaces in East London, unlikely hangouts all over the city have succumbed and the inevitable brunch bug has spread just about... Read more >

Florentine Waterloo - London Restaurant Review

Florentine Waterloo - London Restaurant Review The summer’s approaching and even pale face nightwalkers like myself are drawn nearer to the water come the warmer months. Hordes flock to the Southbank in search of sun, sights and good places to eat – but, in my humble opinion, they’re all missing a trick. Though only opening in... Read more >

Smokey Tails at Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen - London Brunch Review

Smokey Tails at Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen - London Brunch Review Maybe it’s my cliché appreciation of avocados or perhaps more likely, it’s just my unabashed passion for daytime drinking; but like the rest of London, I love a bottomless brunch. And luckily for me - owing to the huge surge in popularity over the last few years -... Read more >

Six Storeys on Soho - London Restaurant Review

Six Storeys on Soho - London Restaurant Review Many a seasoned Soho-er will know of the beautifully-decadent 17th Century townhouse overlooking Soho Square, but perhaps not quite as many will be privy to the faded-glamour stylings of its newest inhabitants, Six Storeys on Soho. Spanning (yep, you guessed it) six separate floors -... Read more >
