Jodie Jones review the Gaucho Group’s globally-renowned Argentinian beef in the mega-restaurant’s sleek Gaucho Piccadilly venue… Vegans and vegetarians need not apply.

Foxcroft & Ginger …visit any time of day

by

I’m a big fan of Soho; seemingly entirely lit by plump neon signs it’s the place to properly lose yourself in London. The small alley ways and networks of streets take you from a proper old boozer (on almost every corner), to cute little modern bars that sparkle enticingly.

Chinese Food In London | Royal China

by

Stepping in from the unwavering phosphorescence of Bayswater’s bustling Queensway, glistening as a beacon amidst the dwindling December twilight, one leaves the chaotic intricacies of London’s assorted inhabitants and their rituals behind and enters an Oriental spectacle, greedily absorbed by each of the five senses.

Fine Dining in London | The Cavendish Hotel | Petrichor

by

Nestled warmly at a street-lining window, peering down upon hasty shoppers and winter-laden lovers meandering along Jermyn Street in the dark London evening, we sat contented with deep, rich coffees in hand and smiles on our face. Why so smiley? Well, the pair of us – my dining partner and I – had just devoured a delectable three course meal, complete with wine pairings, specifically-prepared gluten-free bread and unrelentingly attentive service.

White Rabbit Restaurant review

Follow the White Rabbit

by

It can be quite difficult to find the White Rabbit, much like his disappearing acts in Wonderland. The name on the exterior is barely legible in white paint on the grey walls of the outside, though I’m not surprised as this is the usual way East London “hip” places like to semi-hide themselves.

The Palm London | A Family Affair

by

The Palm in Belgravia. If you live in the area you’re most likely a patron. If you love a good steak, you, too, are most likely a patron. In fact, if you’ve ever searched for an informal but delicious place to celebrate, meet professionally, socialise, drink cocktails or nibble on small bites before a night out, then you also may know of The Palm. And if not, allow me to introduce the restaurant you’ll choose next time you go decide to eat out.

New Bento Express Menu at Buddha-Bar London

by

Buddha-Bar’s new bento features a tasty selection of light Pan Asian starters and mains from which to create your own meal for £27. The bento includes a bowl of miso soup, a side of wakame salad and a choice of steamed rice or Buddha-Bar noodles. Quality of the food is high. Portion sizes are ample with the bento prettily presented. Service is efficient and cordial. If you know Buddha-Bar then you’re aware that the setting is extremely attractive and rather plush, whether you’re there for drinks or a quick meal.

The Global Party | Celebrities, champagne and charity!

by

On June 27th, 28th, and 29th 2013, over 360,000 of the world’s richest, glitziest and most influential individuals will unite and come together to party, socialise and have an unashamedly fabulous night… But don’t worry, it’s all in the name of charity!

The unique concept, which encourages the world’s societal elite to party their cares away in some of the worlds most luxurious venues does sound rather like any other star-studded event on the surface. However, guests may only attend on the pretense of a donation to charity and the venues generously offer their services and hosting skills for free. Ultimately, all funds raised go direct to a selection of worldwide charities, eliminating all costs to the organisers.

Bring 5* Dining Home with Electrolux’s Grand Cuisine System

by

Recreating a Michelin-starred dining experience within the confines of your own home is a notion most without personal chefs would meet with hearty disregard. Although, if you discovered there was indeed a way to enjoy food at home that met the standards presented by the likes of Alain Ducasse and Tom Aikens, for example, it’s probably safe to assume this same whole heartedness that once found solace in disregard, would be displaced into feelings of excitement, curiosity and enthusiasm. Well, prepare yourselves as modern culinary technology has made this the case exactly. Introducing Electrolux Grand Cuisine: the pioneering professional cooking system tailored to suit domesticity and some of the world’s most exquisite homes.

An eclectic mix of people including fashionistas, financiers, journalists, press and friends had come together to celebrate the launch of The Nth Degree Club Book, the debut coffee table edition from London’s foremost private dining society, The Nth Degree Club.
