The Whitechapel Gallery Dining Room

The famous Whitechapel London art Gallery has opened its small and comfortable restaurant and private dining room for hungry bellied art seekers. Or has it? Continue Reading →

The Little Fish Market in Hove, a review.

The rumours about town are that The Little Fish Market in Hove is offering something special. And I can confirm that this tiny 2-person fish restaurant blows any other meal I’ve had out of the water.

My first encounter of The Little Fish was during restaurant review filming with Patrick Mcguigan for 60secondreviews. I met Duncan, the 1-man-band chef of Little Fish, who worked under Heston at The Fat Duck, and his partner-in-crime waiter Rob. Continue Reading →

Street Diner, Brighton

There’s a new kid in town. Each Friday lunchtime at the Brighthelm Gardens near Brighton station, the small grassy park becomes home to a variety of food pop-up stalls, serving local goodness to hungry bellies. Continue Reading →

Dinner & book launch with Atul Kochhar at Indian Essence, Kent

Myself and my food fanatic Brother-in-law David were VERY excited at the prospect of attending Indian Essence, Atul Kochhar’s latest venture in Petts Wood, Kent. Kent you may say? Well the location is actually one of the many things so cool about this place, it sees his progressive Indian cuisine adapted to a neighborhood setting. Continue Reading →

Plateau, a review.

Pretty Plateau.

My second visit to Plateau in Brighton, second graduation meal, firstly mine, secondly my beautiful older sisters. This paints the picture of the trust I have in Plateau to perform. French tapas, ‘platters’ of meat, fish or veg and a drool-inducing specials board, and the food really is special. Continue Reading →

Reform Social & Grill @ The Mandeville Hotel, bar review.

With Decor inspired by old British gentlemen’s clubs, this it does subtly but well with leather banquettes and traditional colours. The bar is large, grand and impressive, what you would hope to see in an upmarket hotel bar. Continue Reading →

GB1 at The Grand Brighton, review.

I was lucky enough to pay a visit to the new GB1 seafood bar that has recently opened in The Grand Hotel, Brighton. Filming there the day before with food writer Andy Lynes for 60secondreviews, I have to be honest it was my first experience inside the hotel that I cycle past most days on the seafront in the Summer. I’ve always been intrigued, hearing the Thatcher stories and gawping up at its tall, ivory ‘grand’ exterior, wondering what goes on inside a hotel that size. Continue Reading →

Café Gourmand, review.

In London on business, lunch-time fastly approaching, my colleague directs us through Soho, down a side street and we fall into his favourite lunch-time haunt, Café Gourmand. A tiny little French bistro where everything sold is home-made on site, a selection of mouth watering avant-garde cakes and pastries fill the window, Continue Reading →

La Choza, review.

As I sit and peruse La Choza whilst sipping from my candy skull mug, there is something odd about the place that I can’t quite put my finger on, and whatever that ‘thing’ is, i similarly can’t decide whether it’s a good or bad ‘thing’.

My first visit was in much different circumstances to my second. Visit one entailed a dressed up affair, invited out for dinner, location unknown, I put on a party dress and some pink lipstick and headed out to meet my dining companion. Continue Reading →

A Bombay café called Dishoom

I visited the Indian restaurant Dishoom in Shoreditch last week.

Sat at the table nearest the bar with my hot and spicy glass of chai, newspaper style menus and incense floating through the air, it was clear someone behind Dishoom has done their homework.
The beautifully thought out interiors add something to this restaurant that you just don’t find in your average Indian.
A wall of carefully arranged family portraits in frames, an old fashioned Indian clock, a walnut chest with a smoking incense stick, and a grand expertly stocked bar. Continue Reading →
