Dinner at Notting Hill Kitchen

Dinner at Notting Hill Kitchen

Notting Hill Kitchen is the kind of restaurant that perfectly captures the magic of the west London neighbourhood and it would be hard not to be charmed by it. Set across three gorgeous white Edwardian townhouses on leafy Kensington Park Road, Notting Hill Kitchen is understated and quaint with a Portuguese [...]

Dinner at Villandry St James’s, London

Dinner at Villandry St James’s, London

Villandry St James’s is the second Villandry restaurant in London (another is at Bicester Village in Oxfordshire) and it is certainly the grandest.

Busaba Eathai Old Street

Busaba Eathai Old Street

When I first moved to London in 2008, I remember being amazed by the queue snaking around the corner to get a seat at Busaba Eathai in Soho.  Luckily, the queues have since calmed down, but Busaba Eathai’s central London restaurants still draw in the crowds.  While hot new restaurants [...]

Royal Ascot Afternoon Tea at Bond & Brook

Royal Ascot Afternoon Tea at Bond & Brook

Bond & Brook is one of my favourite places in London for a meeting or a calming pre or post shopping cup of tea. Part of the Rhubarb group, the second floor restaurant and cafe at Fenwick of Bond Street always feel peaceful and civilised, even when busy – the perfect retreat [...]

Persian dishes at dindin kitchen, Holborn

Persian dishes at dindin kitchen, Holborn

dindin kitchen is the new Persian ‘fine fast food’ restaurant in Holborn that I’ve been raving about to anyone who will listen since visiting recently. Being Persian, I’ve grown up on a diet of slow-cooked stews and Basmati rice studded with vegetable or dried fruit.  Typically, I have the Persian [...]

Sunday Jazz Brunch at Chotto Matte, Soho

Sunday Jazz Brunch at Chotto Matte, Soho

Chotto Matte is a three-floor Japanese-Peruvian restaurant that opened towards the end of last year in Soho. The slick, colourful restaurant serves its own take on Nikkei cuisine – an interesting mix of ceviche, tiraditos, gyoza and robata grill dishes.  Rather than keeping the two cooking styles separate, the ingredients are [...]

Benihana’s 50th Birthday

Benihana’s 50th Birthday

This week, I attended Benihana Japanese Steakhouse’s 50th anniversary party at its Chelsea restaurant on the King’s Road.  It was the first time I’ve visited and it was even more fun and quirky than I’d expected. Founded by the late Hiroaoki ‘Rocky’ Aoki in 1964 with just four tables, Benihana [...]

Big Fernand – Montorgueil, Paris

Big Fernand – Montorgueil, Paris

Big Fernand is a hip burger bar that does things a little differently, bringing a taste of the country to the centre of Paris. The ‘atelier du hamburger’ first opened on rue du Faubourg Poissonnière, with next door Little Fernand specialising in hot dogs, but I visited the second restaurant [...]

Pizza Union Spitalfields, London

Pizza Union brings ’Superveloce Italiana’ to Spitalfields, offering express Italian pizza at a refreshingly affordable price. Tucked away on a cobbled street close to Spitalfields Market and Liverpool Street Station, Pizza Union may not be known to passersby, but it already has a loyal following.  Open seven days a week, 11 to 11, [...]

I recently stayed at five star palace hotel Le Bristol for a special masterclass with Head Bartender Maxime Hoerth and a fun cocktail tour of Paris’ best bars. We had the pleasure of dining mostly in Le Bristol for our two days in Paris, making for a very decadent, relaxed [...]
