Does anyone else get tapas fear? That subconscious small plates worry that you won’t fill your belly, it’s a really concern for a total pig like me.
I had my food radar on red alert at Tramontana Brindisa, the latest tapas kitchen from the Borough-based Spanish food importer. I was quickly calmed by some super-strong [...]
Gail’s Kitchen opens to the public tomorrow, it’s a new venture from Gail’s Bakery, the people who bring you the posh baked goods, and I was lucky enough to be invited to a preview evening at Myhotel in Bloomsbury.

My recently documented trip to Canary Wharf was an invite from Boisdale to celebrate the [...]
Upstairs in Brixton is one of those places I’ve been meaning to go for ages, my sister’s flatmate is the chef there, so it was more of a ‘we must go to the restaurant Oisin works at’ than ever having heard of it. Tucked away on a side street off Acre Lane it’s easy to [...]
