We don’t want to sound naive but up until a year or so ago we hadn’t tried any Peruvian food at all. All that I knew is that a friend of mine went… Continue reading

Ticking all the right boxes | Tredwell’s, 4a Upper St Martin’s Lane, London, WC2H 9NY

Pit masters of the universe | Big Easy Covent Garden, 12 Maiden Lane, Covent Garden, London, WC2E 7NA

Dial Seven For A Good Time | Rediscover Seven Dials, Covent Garden – a top restaurant destination

by

Maybe it’s us, but the Seven Dials district doesn’t instantly spring to mind when thinking of London food hotspots. New openings mostly seem to be concentrated elsewhere, in less pretty parts of town… Continue reading

Fur and Feathers | Polpo At The Ape & Bird, 142 Shaftesbury Avenue, London WC2H 8HJ

by

Russell Norman and Richard Beatty opening a pub was music to our ears. Especially as it’s in an area that is crying out for a decent public house. The Ape & Bird is… Continue reading

Concrete garden where dreams are made of | Shake Shack, 24 Market Building, The Piazza, London WC2E 8RD

When you’re chatting to a member of staff at the one of the most eagerly awaited restaurants to hit London, the last thing you expect them to say is ‘I don’t really rate… Continue reading

Go all the way with Five Guys | Five Guys, 1-3 Long Acre, London, WC2E 9BD ‎

by

The thing that made me most want to try Five Guys was the Evening Standard piece on owner Charles Dunstone. Despite the un-restauranty Carphone Warehouse bit, he oozed passion and determination, traits we… Continue reading

STK London, 336-337 The Strand, London WC2R 1HA

by

On paper STK was everything we dislike in a restaurant. Starting with the name. There must be a few dodgy keyboards out there in the restaurant world at the moment that are missing their… Continue reading

Champagne + Fromage 22 Wellington Street, Covent Garden, London, WC2E 7DD

by

To be honest I’m a little down at the moment… I’m just back from a wonderful break at Huntstile Organic Farm and had caught The Paralympic feel-good fever. So as the last firework… Continue reading

Dalla Terra, 25 Slingsby Place, St Martin’s Courtyard, London WC2E 9AB

by

Our initial gut feeling about Dalla Terra, a newish little Italian wine bar/restaurant on St Martin’s Courtyard was pretty bad. The reason being one of the waiters made us feel a little intimidated… Continue reading

Tuttons, 11/12 Russell Street, Covent Garden London WC2B 5HZ

by

For over 30 years Tuttons, directly opposite Covent Garden Piazza, had been serving up average meals to the hoards of unsuspecting tourists… But no more! Recently re-opened and renovated, it’s now serving a… Continue reading

The Diner, 190 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JL

The Diner group is one of our favourite burger chains, we try to pop in as often as we can… Maybe too often, as my doctor pointed out at my medical last week!… Continue reading

MEATmarket, a preview. Jubilee Market Hall Covent Garden, Tavistock Street London WC2E 8BE

by

It was only a matter of time, MEATliquor has a new little sister, possibly a half-sister, MEATliquor at Jubilee Market Hall, Covent Garden. We went along to the preview last Friday and my hangover has only… Continue reading

Fire & Stone, 4 Horner Square. Old Spitalfields Market

EnoClub Polpo Covent Garden, 6 Maiden Lane, Covent Garden, London WC2E 7NA

Now, we are not experts on wine by any stretch of the imagination. Sure we drink the stuff (maybe too much) and know a few names, but that’s about it… I could also… Continue reading

An invitation too good to miss –  creating Caipirinhas at Brazilian restaurant Cabana, and have a dough masterclass across the road at Jamie Oliver’s Union Jacks at the new Central St Giles piazza just… Continue reading

Hawksmoor Spitalfields bar, 157 Commercial Street, London E1 6BJ

by

There are not many places we could say this about, but we’d happily eat at the Hawksmoor Spitalfields bar every night. We were wowed enough by the main restaurant when we went last… Continue reading
