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.
For one of Michael’s birthday presents I wanted to give him an experience. When I then heard of London in the Sky, and realised that it was taking place in September, it was as if the Gods of Fate had spoken to me. It was perfect.
On Michael’s actual birthday, I treated him to a meal fit for a man. Steak & chips, obviously. Goodman is often proclaimed to be the best steakhouse in London, so we thought we'd see for ourselves.
