Sticks ‘n’ Sushi, Covent Garden

Sticks ‘n‘ Sushi was voted best sushi restaurant in the foodie city of Copenhagen, but how would that success translate into London, where there are sushi joints on every corner? The answer is – really well, there’s a real sense of them working hard to bring something different to the market.

Sticks ‘n’ Sushi was started by two brothers, half Danish, half Japanese. Continue Reading →

Pix Bar, Notting Hill

Pix Bar has sprung up in some of the trendiest locations in London, and trendy is definitely the key word here. I tried out the Notting Hill Pix.
Tempting cocktails – and the food is small ‘pinchtos’ plates, which are sat attractively on the bar looking so damn good they practically drag you in through the window. Continue Reading →

Koya Bar, restaurant review

Koya Bar is Japanese fast-ish food London restaurant Koya’s littler, cooler sister. Or so I thought.

Koya Bar really does just consist of a bar, where you sit on little stools and watch the talented Japanese chefs cook your ramen noodles and miso.
For someone relatively new to Japanese food, I must admit I was a little daunted by Koya. Continue Reading →

Fish Market, review

Fish Market sits nicely on New Street in London, right by Liverpool St Station and right next to seriously impressive restaurant New Street Grill.

I loved the decor in Fish Market, beautiful bleached wood floors, slate and wood worn tables Continue Reading →

Olivocarne, restaurant review

A smart, pricey Italian in Belgravia – part of the Olivo group who are apparently taking over this suited and booted area of town in a Rick Stein Padstow-esque manner with their fish, meat and even gelato openings. Continue Reading →

The New Club, Brighton

As the summer draws to a close, it’s all about finding some exciting new places to hang out in, eat good food and get drunk.

The New Club opened it’s doors on Brighton seafront in March, and combines an independent coffee house with a stylish NYC eatery.

The team have done their research. Having travelled far and wide in search of the best deep south barbecue food and cutting edge creative diners, they’ve pooled their knowledge and experience. Continue Reading →

Dinner at Davids

My brother-in-law David is the best cook I know, with the cruddest kitchen (he would admit). Like a phoenix rising from the ashes he works his magic on his 1970’s electric cooker and produces the best home made food I have ever tasted (sorry Mum) Continue Reading →

The Art of Dining Pop-up meets National Trust at Fenton House

A hot, balmy summers evening in Hampstead, myself and the 60secondreviews crew, hot and bothered, lug our camera equipment through the back gate of Fenton House, a towering 17th century National Trust building with accompanying gardens and orchards.

We reach the lawn at the front of the house, camera bag goes down and mouths drop open. The house and gardens are stunning, and furthermore the gazebo and tables laid up in country-garden-party style fashion is simply too much to take in. This is going to be a good night. Continue Reading →

The Well Hung Meat Co. cooks for Brighton Food Society

The latest Brighton Food Society get together involved some very special visitors, the men behind The Well Hung Meat Company were travelling up from Devon to introduce us to their, well, meat.

On arrival we were treated to an interesting if not slightly innuendo filled video presentation of who The Well Hung Meat Co were, and what they offered. Continue Reading →

Twisted Tapas at The Garden Café, Hove

Tapas in the cute Anns-well gardens in Hove after work on a Friday during a heatwave? Sold.

I was transported into garden party heaven just by strolling up the road and into the park, instant work to weekend.

You have to forgive the Garden Café for a few things – it is a park café after all, over-run in the day by screaming snotty children and pushchairs, and people nipping in and out with muddy feet for mini milks and mugs of tea. Continue Reading →
