Marcus, the Berkeley, London, restaurant review

This week, thanks toTwitter, the Monday Supper Club was born. Twitter is often decried as the epitome of all evil, where trolls lurk and insults and cruel words are traded. I mostly follow other food lovers and I am neither interesting nor controversial enough to attract attention and so, on the whole,  it works for me. And … More Marcus, the Berkeley, London, restaurant review

Temper Covent Garden, sweet Cheesus, the nine hour lunch, restaurant review

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Neil Rankin. I adore his original restaurant in Soho (BBQ and mezcal), am a bit nonplussed  about No.2, City, (curry and gin) but was beyond excited for No.3, featuring pizza,  not just any pizza, and vermouth. And so,  when I saw the soft launch started on bank … More Temper Covent Garden, sweet Cheesus, the nine hour lunch, restaurant review

108 Restaurant, Copenhagen, restaurant review

Noma, the name said with reverence, is the holy grail of the food world. Reopened just three months ago, it is the aspiration of many but visited by few. And I, friends,remain aspiring. So,when in Copenhagen last month, I visited 108 instead. 108 is very Noma-esque, the head chef being Kristian Baumann, an apprentice of Redzepi, the renowned chef and co-owner of … More 108 Restaurant, Copenhagen, restaurant review

Typing Room, my type of place, restaurant review

When NN announces at dinner in Malta that she will be in London in a few weeks, I’m delighted. She is an excellent dinner companion, not least because she thinks only in terms of pleasure, rather than cost. I know I can choose somewhere indulgent and she won’t flinch. I am close to booking Roganic of which I have only read reviews … More Typing Room, my type of place, restaurant review

The Marksman, mark my words you’ll love it, restaurant review

IW was turning, let’s just say, a significant age and I was due to travel to Glasgow to celebrate/commiserate this with her when the ‘beast from the east’ hit and I was stuck in London, unable to travel.  As luck would have it, IW ended up stuck in London too.   I was determined to make the best of the … More The Marksman, mark my words you’ll love it, restaurant review

Rascals, bottomless brunch, restaurant review

There is something truly magical about surprising someone but particularly someone you love. And so my excitement was at an all time high when I finally told T and our new girl gang member, H, that we were going to Rascals on Curtain Road for a late, bottomless brunch followed by a trip next door to Ballie Ballerston, the … More Rascals, bottomless brunch, restaurant review
