Embracing Basque cuisine in London :: Eneko at One Aldwych

London is full of surprises and the one that I have recently embraced with open arms is Eneko at One Aldwych, which opened in September 2016. When a restaurant is affiliated to (and named after) a chef with three Michelin Stars and whose debut restaurant is ranked number 16 in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, you tend…

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.

Refueling at London’s The Soho Hotel

Afternoon tea :: the Rose Lounge

As an avid coffee drinker I can really only think of two occasions where tea trumps my favorite cup of joe: dim sum and afternoon tea.

Afternoon tea :: Sanderson Hotel London

Afternoon tea is an age-old tradition in England that has withstood the fast-paced nature of the modern world and I’m just beginning to understand why.  I’ve always been a coffee and pastry person, it’s quick, casual and satisfying, but as the days seems so much shorter and a to-do list ever longer, I now see the draw of…

Menu tasting :: The Imperial

We all have slightly different requirements for a great dining experience but usually it all comes down to the basics: the company you keep, atmosphere, service and of course the meal itself.  The Imperial, a gastropub in Fulham, fits the bill for me with an added bonus of having a wonderfully photogenic interior to swoon over.
