GIANT ROBOT – FARRINGDON

The Hype Trendy Clerkenwell all day diner, from the people behind uber-cool but highly regarded venues Milk and Honey, Redhook and The Player. I initially booked based on rumours that they were serving up my favourite burger from Lucky Chip (which I otherwise have to make pilgrimage to Hackney for). By the time I got … Continue reading

SMITHS Spitalfields – LIVERPOOL STREET

The Hype Following an excellent evening at Smiths of Smithfield a few months ago, I was delighted to be invited for the launch night of its new four storey sibling, SMITHS Spitalfields in September – located in a trendy location within Spitalfields market. The Fun With exposed brickwork galore, an outdoor terrace within the covered … Continue reading

NO. 11 PIMLICO ROAD – SLOANE SQUARE

THE HYPE New all-day-eating-and-cocktailing-and-coffeeing-bar-slash-restaurant opened on the former site of The Ebury just off Sloane Square as No 11 Pimlico Road. You might have seen it featured quite heavily on the recent series of Made in Chelsea, but I was already keen to go due to some early rave reviews of the breakfasts. THE FOOD … Continue reading

HONEST BURGERS – BRIXTON

THE HYPE One of the earliest entrants to the London super burger scene, Honest Burgers’ first outlet was also helpfully located in the foodie mecca that is Brixton Village (and a short walk from my house). A 4* and a 5* review from trusted burger detective Burgerac seemed to suggest there was more worth investigating … Continue reading

HUSH BRASSERIES – ST PAULS

This is a new breed of spin-off Hush Brasseries located in St Pauls and Holborn which have only just opened. THE FOOD This is my kind … Continue reading

NEW STREET GRILL – LIVERPOOL STREET

THE HYPE Until now relatively unremarkable and unbeknown British grill in the heart of the city, recently catching the eye of foodie bargain hunters with the new “neverending Sunday lunch” which comes with unlimited prosecco. THE FOOD There’s nothing too jazzy or experimental about this menu – thank god. For me, the Sunday roast is … Continue reading

DAYLESFORD ORGANIC – SLOANE SQUARE

The Hype Chelsea outpost of the Gloucestershire farm shop stocking a mouth-watering array of vegetables, meats, cheese and anything else you might need a wholesome, organic, locally produced version of. In addition to the shop, there’s an impressive café menu and after happening upon it on a sunny day in desperate search of breakfast, it … Continue reading

DUCK & WAFFLE – LIVERPOOL STREET

The Hype Located on the 40th floor of the Heron tower in the city, with sweeping views of London, sitting on top of sister restaurant Sushi Samba – Duck and Waffle was one of the most hyped restaurant openings of late 2012. The Food The most important thing you need to know is that you … Continue reading

BEN’S CANTEEN – CLAPHAM JUNCTION

The Hype British comfort food on the Wandsworth side of Clapham Junction, famous for brunch, burgers and stocking Brewdog IPA.* The Food I opted for a signature BC burger, everyone else went for steak and nearly all also went for a side of mac ‘n’ cheese (obviously) which is one of the more delicious ones … Continue reading
