BRASSERIE ZEDEL

Last week I met my lovely friend Claire for a long-overdue catch up.  She wanted to meet somewhere central, near a tube station and not too expensive, so I suggested Brasserie Zédel, a new French restaurant in Piccadilly Circus. Brasserie Zédel is the brainwave from Jeremy King and Chris Corbin,…

BILL’S, SOHO

I walk through Soho nearly every day and I’m used to the many restaurants and bars I see all the time.  However, a few weeks ago I was walking down Brewer Street at night and was immediately struck by Bill’s, a new addition to Soho which took the space previously filled…

BRINDISA, BOROUGH MARKET

Yesterday I had the best afternoon.  I caught up with my favourite boys, Paul and Heath, who are just back from their honeymoon.  They live in London Bridge so we decided to go to Brindisa for something to eat.  I love Brindisa but its been ages since I eaten there…

BURGER & LOBSTER, SOHO

I’ve been trying to get into Burger & Lobster for ages but I can never seem to get in.  I’m always met with a queue and a waiting list. Last week however, I was off work so I took the chance to get there early and secure a table. I…

HANOI BIKE SHOP, GLASGOW

I took some time off work recently to spend a bit of time at home with my family and pretty much stalk my 7 month old nephew.  While I was there, my brother’s girlfriend texted me asking if I fancied Vietnamese for dinner.  Vietnamese?  In Glasgow??  Hell yeah!  It’s about…

SUNDAY ROAST AT HAWKSMOOR, COVENT GARDEN

Last weekend my friends and I went to the renowned steakhouse, Hawksmoor, in Covent Garden to celebrate our friend Faiza’s birthday. The Observer awarded Hawksmoor the accolade of Best Sunday Roast in 2010. Unfortunately it just lost out to The Bull and Last in Highgate in 2011 but it was still…

CRABSHAKK, GLASGOW

I love Glasgow, especially the West End of Glasgow. My three brothers live in the West End and when I go home to visit my family, I usually spend the majority of my time there.  With its wealth of fantastic restaurants, delis, bars and pubs, it’s the ideal foodie destination.…

MONTEITHS, EDINBURGH

As I said in my previous post, I was at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival last weekend.  We had a pretty late night on Saturday night so when we woke on Sunday, the only thing we could think of was breakfast.  My initial thought was to go to the City Cafe but there…

DAVID BANN, EDINBURGH

Every August bank holiday I head North of the border to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This is my favourite weekend of the year. I went to University in Edinburgh and whilst I was there, I worked at the local radio station in my spare time as part of my media…

AUTOMAT, MAYFAIR

I have been trying to get into Burger & Lobster for months now but every time I try there’s either a huge queue or something happens and plans change.  So when my wonderful friends Lucy, Jane and Dawn decided we were way overdue for a catch up,  I suggested trying it…

TSUNAMI, CLAPHAM

I had a bit of an odd day on Saturday.  I stayed up late on the Friday night to watch the opening ceremony of the London Olympics (the procession of the athletes went on forever!), which I loved.  I think Danny Boyle did us all proud.  But it meant I…

GOING VEGETARIAN AT THE GATE, ISLINGTON

A few weeks ago I saw a review for The Gate restaurant in Islington in the Metro written by Marina O’Loughlin. I’m always on the lookout for new restaurants and I was particularly interested in this one as its a vegetarian restaurant. I have been flirting with the idea of…
