I think I owe the Spanish nation an apology. I’ve been ignoring their fine cuisine for years now, most unfairly, so here it is: sorry, amigos, I’ve been a dick.

Native is my absolute new favourite restaurant, and it’s just around the corner from my new office. I’m very smug about this.
A personal hairdresser A personal chef These would be the two things I’ve always said I’d indulge in if I won the lottery. I wouldn’t change much else, but I’d live the rest of my life throwing elaborate dinner parties and tossing my fabulous hair. But while a blow dry in London will cost you […]

“What, so they don’t cook the food? What’s the point?!” This was the probably the most positive reaction I got from my colleagues when I announced I was off for a post-work dinner at a raw vegan restaurant. Everyone else was much more…colourful.

I’m proud to announce that duck and waffle, so delicious it has a restaurant named after it, is the latest dish in the Gibson culinary repertoire. It’s a bit fancier than my other specialties (oven chips, sausage sandwiches, eggy bread, etc.) – but, as Carla and I found at School of Wok last week, it’s […]
The Polo Bar at the Westbury Hotel has hit upon an amazing idea. When you order a cocktail, you get two glasses. One full-sized drink for you, and one matching tiddly tipple for your drinking companion.

“It looks quite posh,” said the voice down the phone. “Are you nearly here yet?” It was the usual refrain from Mike and, indeed, anyone else foolish enough to arrive punctually at any sort of social engagement also attended by me. “I’m five minutes away,” I said, from the 55 bus, nine minutes away. “And go on in.

There were a few horrified faces when The Book Of Mormon dropped its first C-bomb 30 minutes into the show, but, looking around, most of what I saw were people looking at each other gleefully, much like my pre-teen friends and I when Mr Tweedy shouted “you thieving little buggers” after the fleeing poultry in Chicken Run.

Ramen: it’s like soup on steroids. Bone Daddies, of course, is a well-established front-runner; its steaming bowls of noodly pork broth are a cornerstone of the unstoppable Asian street food trend. After opening branches in Soho and High Street Ken, and sister restaurants Flesh & Buns in Covent Garden and Shackfuyu in Soho, the BD […]

Two days after Lou, Rosie and I decided that Hoppers was our next target destination, Fay Maschler of The Evening Standard gave it five stars in an uncharacteristically gushing review. Which was maddening, as it doesn’t take reservations and the queues were already a couple of hours long at peak times, even before a glowing endorsement from London’s […]
