On our second night in Marrakech we had dinner booked at The Selman hotel, which is a 5 star hotel situated about 15minutes outside the centre. Prior to dinner we decided to visit the La Mamounia hotel for cocktails, as we'd been recommended by friends that it was a must whilst in Marrakech, and we sat in the pretty gardens and enjoyed a refreshing early evening cocktail each.

Lana and I went for brunch today at a place she's been raving about for years. Hidden in a former clothing factory in Hackney, the entrance is totally unmarked. Parking directly outside the front door we headed in, past what is now a private dining room, which apparently used to be a drag performance space. Sad that's gone.

There are few pleasures as universal as dining out with family and friends. Grabbing a pint in the pub with an old friend or going to dinner with loved ones are some of our favourite ways to spend quality time social time with our nearest and dearest. Far from being merely a place to eat and drink, restaurants, cafes and bars are social spaces - social spaces that across the UK we elect to spend our time, and our money.

With all the doom, gloom, drama and chaos that is sweeping the country following Brexit, there couldn't be a better time to remind ourselves of what makes Britain, and in particular London, so great. One of the best indications of London's spectacular diversity and ability to draw on such a wide range of cultures is the incredible range of restaurants in the city.

The Case for Eating Lunch Outside the Office

Vana C. Koutsomitis

When was the last time you took time to meet someone for lunch outside the office? According to research in the UK, it probably wasn't recently. It is a real shame that the business lunch has been dying out because I am a firm believer in taking the time to get to know someone out of the office environment. If you want to seal a deal, or make a business partnership, I believe it is best to do so over lunch.

I took her to Carousel, which is in Marylebone, and run by four impossibly beautiful young cousins. 'We could do something,' I pointed out to my sister. 'Some kind of family business.' 'Oh, I'm already doing something,' she replied cavalierly. 'With the cousins.' She paused, to look at me. 'Sorry, we would have included you but we didn't think you had anything to offer.'

In the last couple of months or so I have been served a brownie on a board, baked beans in a bowl, chips in a bucket, mushy peas in a jam jar and a burger on a piece of wood. I haven't had anything served on a tile or a slate recently, but there's every chance that'll happen soon.
