Ginza Onodera London

Posted by & filed under Restaurants.

Walking into Ginza Onodera made me realise there’s been a whole sub-genre of restaurants that I have: a) only just realised is a sub-genre of restaurants; and b) studiously avoided for years - Japanese restaurants with oddly forbidding, darkened glass frontages. Seriously, walk around the more chi chi parts of the capital and you’ll spot... Read more »

Temakinho

As a wannabe vegan (who’s more realistically a flexitarian) with a weakness for good tuna ceviche - when I do indulge my pescartarain tastes, I try to ensure it’s sustainably sourced. I mean, I can’t even bring myself to watch ‘Blue Planet’, I’m so devastated by how we’ve plundered our precious ocean. So when I... Read more »

Selman Restaurant

On a warm October day we headed to the beautiful luxury hotel The Selman, on the outskirts of Marrakesh, for sumptuous dining experience. Our chauffeur drove us up to the front door of the spectacular hotel where the Dorman showed us into the lobby where we then glided across the marble floors to the main... Read more »

I don’t know about you but whenever I hear “Heddon Street” my mind veers towards “Hedonism”. It certainly doesn’t bring to mind Hedon in Yorkshire, the town that gave the street its (misspelled) name because of its links to the Pulteney Estate but that might be because I’ve only just looked that up. We’ll see,... Read more »

Nagai Sushi

Posted by & filed under Restaurants.

Having living in Ibiza for a year and frequented all of the Island’s sushi joints – from the party venues (imagine deep-house beats pummelling your sashimi) to the most basic – it’s with great confidence that I declare, as I am sure most of the Island residents would agree with me, that Nagai Sushi marks...

Nozomi

Posted by & filed under Restaurants.

After scouring the capital’s finest boutiques for those all-important holiday gifts, one feels rather too weighed down by shopping bags to indulge in the typical, stodgy, European, winter fare. This is where Nozomi comes in. Ideally placed, but a stone’s throw from Harrods, this unique restaurant combines a bar with slick, metallic furnishings and fittings,... Read more »

Kouzu

Posted by & filed under Restaurants.

Let me clarify my position regarding Kouzu from the off. It’s very, very good. Service is impeccable – Salvatore, we salute you. Drinks are interesting, and not in that euphemistic, fixed smile kind of way. The room, while not scoring points for originality, is spacious, sleek and stylishly picked out in assorted greys and variations... Read more »

Chotto Matte

Posted by & filed under Restaurants.

Soho might just be the best area in London for lunch. Though Soho is bursting to the seams with late night eateries, the unparalleled volume of surrounding offices and hungry-trendy-media folk has encouraged some of these venues to open their doors earlier and provide tasty treats for the lunchtime rush. Given the variety of companies... Read more »
