Friday fave :: Berners Tavern @ The London EDITION

Walk inside Jason Atherton’s Berners Tavern at the London Edition hotel and you could be rendered speechless.  I know I was when I stopped in for lunch a few weeks ago and had a difficult time peeling my eyes away from its art laden walls. Dangling from the ceilings are the equally impressive Beaux Arts oval shaped chandeliers, exact…

Refueling at London’s The Soho Hotel

London food & lifestyle photography workshop in session
