A few Sunday’s back, Michael, William, Hash, and I, decided to have a ‘Sunday Fun Day’ at an old favourite of Michael’s & mine, Eight over Eight.
I have tried to book a table at Bob Bob Ricard many-a-time since first hearing about the infamous ‘Press for Champagne’ button positioned at every table. Yes, EVERY table.
If you live in London, love food, or brunch, then you will have heard of Granger & Co. Owned by Aussie chef Bill Granger, the restaurant located in quaint Notting Hill is quite literally famous on the breakfast scene for its scrambled eggs and ricotta hotcakes.
Dishoom has been at the top of my ‘want-to-go’ list for AGES having heard only rave reviews from friends, but it always got side-lined as they don’t take reservations for dinner, which I always find a bit tricky! But the time had come.
It was my good friend William’s birthday last week so he rounded up a small troop of foodies and lovingly guided us to 8 Hoxton Square for a celebratory meal.
A little while ago Michael was a real cutie and surprised me with dinner at L’Autre Pied, a one Michelin star restaurant close to Bond Street. Granted, he’d got a good deal through Groupon, but if you can demonstrate “it’s the thought that counts” AND get a good bargain at the same time, you’re just winning in my eyes.
My darling school friend Alice met me last Wednesday for the most overdue catch-up in the history of mankind.
Last weekend Michael and I enjoyed an impromptu date night at my all-time, hands-down, a-million-times-over, favourite restaurant in London, Roka Restaurant on Charlotte Street. But this time, it was different.
Hotbox is relatively new on the restaurant scene, having opened just last December. Considering mine and Michael’s love for BBQ’ed meat, and that Hotbox is walking distance from both my home and work, it’s almost shameful that it took us so long to get around to making a visit.
I was a little slow on the ‘advance booking’ of Mother’s Day celebrations this year, so despite trying to find a suitably fitting option to celebrate my favourite lady two weeks before the big day, I was coming up empty.
Last Sunday was a big day in the diary for me. I was finally getting around to performing my daughter-ly duties and celebrating my mother for a belated Mother's Day.
Michael and I and our duo in crime had been planning our first double date for some time. All good friends and lovers of food, there was nothing to do but pick a good restaurant.
My nearest and dearest school friend Zoe and I were horribly overdue a catch up. It had been so long that we needed to do it right. I had heard many good things about Mildred’s plus, of course, trusty tripadvisor reviews assured me that my friends weren’t exaggerating.
Northbank is a restaurant that I have frequented in the past and, although excellent, it was on the more expensive side of things. Hence, when I came across an Opentable offer for 50% off food, I jumped at the chance of a more purse-friendly revisit!
On a freezing Friday evening, Michael and I joined the rather impressive queue that had formed outside Franco Manca in Brixton Market.
