Kalifornia Kitchen

Instagram chic Kalifornia Kitchen resembles what you can imagine a hipster, vegan cafe in California to look like with aesthetics being a priority here. The popping pink, wall quotes and flower walls are a dream for diners looking for photo opps for the gram.   From the get go, I had a good gut feeling…

Brasserie of Light

The Brasserie of Light is Selfridges latest gem, perfect for a well deserved shopping break or special occasion. I visited the restaurant to celebrate my best friends engagement and it was a lovely evening. The chic restaurant is part of The Ivy group and the service and diverse British and internationally inspired menu reflects their…

Maison Bab

It’s been a while since I’ve done a restaurant review but I’m back with one for new Maison Bab in Covent Garden which I attended during their soft launch. This is the newest member of the Le Bab family known for their Middle Eastern inspired unique, gourmet kebabs. Le Bab is one of my fave…

The Gilbert Scott

Lavish decor, a grand dining hall and sophisticated, vibrant food are just a few of the many great qualities The Gilbert Scott can boast of. I enjoyed a lovely evening here recently, including a kitchen tour and a contemporary English meal, at the restaurant in the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel.   It was great to…

Holborn Dining Room

Brunch. Everyone, myself included, is so into it, it might as well become one of our essential weekend meals. Most restaurants that cater for the weekend brunch crowd in London have similar menus and it’s rare for a brunch spot to really stand out for me. By this I mean so mouth water-ingly delicious that I’d be excited…

Nama Foods

With the plant based diet becoming a health trend recently, Nama Foods is a jewel for the vegan scene in London, Notting Hill to be precise. You can find lots of the popular healthy eateries, including Farmacy and Planet Organic in this area. Not many restaurants can boast about including dishes made of raw foods…

Kricket

Will Bowlby and Rik Campbell originally started Kricket in Brixton in 2015 and have expanded to a bigger space in Soho this month. After the huge success of the Brixton branch, there was talk about the opening of the Soho restaurant for months and I’m glad it’s finally here! The trendy hotspot, specialising in contemporary…

Cinnamon Bazaar

Cinnamon Bazaar by Vivek Singh is the latest addition to the Cinnamon Collection family following the successes of its sister restaurants The Cinnamon Club, Cinnamon Soho and Cinnamon Kitchen. Inspired by Bazaars dotted along the spice, silk and frankincense routes around India, the restaurant has a more relaxed feel compared to the other collection members….

Fucina

Kurt Zdesar has done it again! His culinary empire, which includes some of London’s top restaurants – Chotto Matte, Nobu and Black Roe to name a few, gained a new addition last month. He has teamed up with Chef Stefano Stecco to bring an Italian dining venture to Marylebone. They travelled around Italy and the…

DUM London

I love a restaurant with a simple, focused menu and DUM London by Dhruv Mittal provides just that with a menu centered around an old Indian favourite – biryani. The newly opened biryani house on Wardour Street has a small narrow entrance but the stairs lead down to a surprisingly large, authentically decorated basement space….
