I got a call last week from my favourite person asking if I was free for dinner. I was not, but for her, I absolutely was. Mum had just finished a networking event in the City and so somewhere nearby was the obvious choice for us both. Barbecoa fitted the bill perfectly.
Back in December Michael & I adhered to tradition and spent a full Sunday shopping for Christmas presents in Selfridges. We all know that such hard work requires fuel. Of the filling kind. Thus we popped in to Crocker’s Folly for a proper British Sunday roast, plus some extras.
I do love me a good steak, so it brings me great joy to tell you about a steakhouse that I recently visited which truly deserves its moment in the limelight.
Having had a disappointing experience at City Social early last year, I must admit that I wasn’t particularly fussed about ever returning. However, thankfully I did, and I’m more than happy to say that I stand completely corrected – (nearly) everything was phenomenal.
Zelman Meats is the latest opening from Moscow-based restaurant group Goodman, which owns steakhouses all over London (and is where I recently took Michael for his birthday), as well as the steak and king crab concept Beast and the beloved Burger & Lobster chain.
Despite having spent the day stuffing our faces at Stylist Live, Lauren & I showed up to Pizza Union for our pizza feed bang on dinner time.
A short while ago the lovely folk at Bocconcino got in touch and asked if myself and a few other bloggers would like to pop in for a review. Gladly, was obviously my answer.
Who doesn’t love date night? Personally, for me, nothing beats splitting a good bottle of wine and sharing an indulgent meal with a loved one.
I think it’s safe to say that everyone loves afternoon tea. But finding a good quirky one can be a bit of a challenge. But, thanks to Cahoots, you need look no further.
A few weeks ago I attended my first ever supper club. But it wasn’t just any supper club – this was Luiz Hara, aka the highly regarded author of the award-winning blog The London Foodie’s, supper club.
So I have something rather exciting to share with you all. Enter Take Eat Easy. A new food-tech start-up that’s giving a whole new meaning to the word ‘takeaway’.
It was my beautiful friend Abigail’s birthday (whom you might recognise from my recent Spanish adventures) not long ago, so I decided to treat her to a lavish birthday dinner to celebrate at none other than Kaspar’s Seafood Bar & Grill at the regal Savoy hotel.
The Delaunay is a very elegant establishment. Brought to us by Corby & King, the duo behind The Wolseley, the similarities in style & standards are hard to miss. The dining room is the epitome of ‘traditional glamour’ and 50’s-style luxury.
For the first time in 5 years, my dad came to visit. He’s a rather traditional man. A man of ties, ‘proper’ (wholesome) food, and fine wine. So where better to take him for his first meal on British soil than MASH?
Last week I was lucky enough to have dinner with two lovely ladies, Honey and Lauren, at the recently opened fancy French restaurant Jean Jacques in Soho. A lover of Paris and all things French (especially zee accent, ohhhh zat accent), I was excited to check out this new haunt.
So, if you didn’t already know, I love Roka. As in, loooooove Roka. Honestly, I think I should get paid for the amount of positive advertising I do for them! Hence I’ve already reviewed Roka, Charlotte Street twice, once back in May, and again for my birthday meal in June.
After a long & hard day of moving house, Part 1, there was no way that Michael & I were cooking ourselves supper. Thankfully, Wright Brothers in Spitalfields were able to squeeze us in for a last-minute reservation.
