This Week I Ate...Texture and Eggs

William Sitwell | Posted 11.04.2014 | UK Lifestyle

Aggi is from Iceland, by the way, cooks in red trousers, has a fruity smile and looks just like Anders Behring Breivik. Which, when mixed with the fact that he shares a name with one of Britain's celebrity cleaning ladies, is an alarming combination. Still one should judge a plate of food not by the chef's trousers...

This Week I Ate... Chiltern Firehouse

You nip to the loo, get lost, then find it downstairs and see people walk through the room and through a secret door. This is where the smokers can hang. It's some kind of sexy underground smokey hangout. It makes smoking seem cool, which is seriously naughty.

This Week I Ate...Maramia, Lisa's and Tom's

William Sitwell | Posted 11.04.2014 | UK Lifestyle
William Sitwell

Some of these guys won't last and will be forced to relinquish their little joints whose offerings give the local community considerably more than another wretched fashion outlet churning clothes whose sequins and buttons were doubtless sewn on by grubby fingered urchins comfortably several oceans away...

Cabana, London - Review

Beth Brookfield | Posted 11.04.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Beth Brookfield

The Sweet Potato fries were some of the best I've ever had and were the perfect combination of crispy coating and fluffy potato sprinkled in Paprika. We thought we should try the Cassava Chips since they are 'the Brasilian French Frie' but they were a little bland for both our tastes and we didn't really enjoy them.

This Week I Ate... Honey & Co, Morito and an Ambassador's Des Res

I ordered a Fitzrovia Bun at Milk & Honey on Warren Street. This is something you should try to do at least once in your life. I do it about twice a year. Any more would seem greedy. It is like no other bun you will ever feast your eyes on.

Restauranteurs Behind the Restaurants: David Moore on Pop-Ups, Pied and His New Smokehouse

Emma Sleight

David Moore, the phenomenally successful restaurateur behind the Michelin-starred Pied à Terre and L'Autre Pied, is about to launch his next food venture. I caught up with him at his Charlotte Street venue to chat about his upcoming restaurant.

Burgers & Custard - An Ideal Combo

Ben Falk | Posted 26.01.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Ben Falk

As well as being a burger joint, Shake Shack is well known for its frozen custard, varieties of which are changed daily. I asked whether frozen custard was just a neat name for ice-cream, in the way that the word gelato has taken over Soho (I know, I know, they're all different, but I'm not an ice cream aficionado).

Bermondsey Street - A Restaurant Mecca

One pocket that's crying out for a dalliance is Bermondsey St., which hides away behind London Bridge. Its niche is its restaurants: it is so overflowing with a stunning and varied selection of eateries that it qualifies to be a foodie pocket of its own. Here are four of my fave.

American Smooth

It's been about twenty years since I last found myself inside notorious theatrical hangout Joe Allen and it's a compliment to say that it's barely changed.

Great Northern Hotel and Plum and Spilt Milk, London - Review

When I was asked to review Great Northern Hotel and it's restaurant Plum and Spilt Milk, I picked a free Friday evening and couldn't wait to spend the evening staying in Central London with my other half Steve.

Camberwell Love, London - Review

Beth Brookfield | Posted 22.12.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Beth Brookfield

I had a really enjoyable evening at Camberwell Love. It's a pop-up that is unique, talented and fun and very reasonably priced at £45 for 8 courses and a cocktail. James Cochrane is a young chef that will go far and he and his pop-up are definitely ones to watch.

The London Michelin Guide 2014

There are no changes at the 3 star level, meaning that Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, Gordon Ramsay's Royal Hospital Road, The Fat Duck and The Waterside Inn remain as the only 3 Michelin Starred restaurants in the UK Michelin Guide 2014.

Monikers, London - Review

Beth Brookfield | Posted 27.11.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Beth Brookfield

Moniker's is a hidden gem in the middle of busy Shoreditch. The food is a mixture of brasserie and 'posh' pub grub and they do it very well.

The Gate - Islington - Review

Beth Brookfield | Posted 15.11.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Beth Brookfield

When I was invited to review The Gate's new Islington restaurant, I couldn't wait to try it out. The Asparagus Rotolo was one of the nicest vegetarian main courses I've ever had - char-grilled asparagus, courgettes and red peppers with herb ricotta and goat's cheese...

Outside Dining - Before the End of Summer

James Emtage | Posted 11.04.2014 | UK Lifestyle
James Emtage

With the summer of sun still going strong, London is LOVING its alfresco dining at the mo. And with the long evenings just still dragging out and slowly merging into that golden Autumnal feel, it's time to make the most of eating outside, before the chill sets in for winter.

Skate King's Cross & Disco Bistro - Review

Beth Brookfield | Posted 02.11.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Beth Brookfield

Last week I was very excited to be spending an evening skating at a roller disco and eating burgers. It felt silly and fun and like something I would have done in my teens and not in my 30s, which made it all the more appealing for a Tuesday night after a day in the office.

The Good Earth, or How I Left My Flat

Lucy Karsten | Posted 03.11.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Lucy Karsten

I am a big fan of Chinese food, although my flatmates are not, complaining that our sofas are becoming slowly re-decorated in a series of sweet and sour smears and dropped noodle stains. I have therefore been forced to leave the pleasant and comforting confines of Chinese take-aways, and venture into the much more intimidating world of actual Chinese restaurants.

I Hate Fussy Eaters, but There's a New Restaurant in Town

Lucy Karsten | Posted 28.10.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Lucy Karsten

I am still wary of people who begin meals with a list of things they 'do not eat', or who pick at food warily, as though it were filled with menace, rather than a bowl of spaghetti. I am delighted, therefore, with the new venture from Cameron Worth and Rolan Dack: Ronnie Saunders Diners Union.

Try the Veal...

Ben Falk | Posted 06.10.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Ben Falk

Veal (a hearty T-bone) is on the new lunchtime grill menu at Coq D'Argent in London. And the light-pinky slab of flesh's slightly shady past fits in well with this well-known hub of City life. It's elegant and tasty and smells good, has a hint of decadence, but you also feel a bit naughty eating it.

Terre A Terre, Brighton - Review

Beth Brookfield | Posted 21.09.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Beth Brookfield

Terre A Terre is a wonderful restaurant and a lot of vegetarian restaurants could learn from its creatively - there was not a vegetarian lasagne in sight. The dish names are clever, the presentation is clever and the food is more than clever. I would definitely recommend it, whether you are vegetarian or not.

The Best and the Worst Meals I Have Ever Eaten

My mum's a magician in the kitchen. She can take a soft pink steak, put it in a pan and out comes the stuff of dreams. Slapped on the plate, on a bed of yellow lettuce is half-charcoal brick, half meat-ice cream. Did I say dreams? I meant nightmares.
