Aulis at Fera, Claridges

Have you ever exclaimed 'How on earth do they do that' whilst eating stunning food in a restaurant? Yep me too. Often when we eat out at places where chefs are at the top of their game I spend the evening not only enjoying every morsel of food but racking my brains trying to work out how it was achieved. I love the mystery and intrigue of well crafted food....

Dishoom

Before our latest trip to London, a few people recommended Dishoom to me and then I also spotted that they were listed in a top ten list of places to eat breakfast in London. So, the decision was made and I booked us in to the Dishoom in Shoreditch, near our hotel. What a fantastic place it is! Dishoom is styled on the Irani cafes found in Bombay and it oozes...

The Barbary

Ever since eating at the Palomar last year, I've been looking for an opportunity to go back. The news that The Palomar had opened a smaller, sister restaurant focused my plans to find an opportunity to get back down to London. What excites me about the Barbary is how everyone gets a chance to watch what is going on in the kitchen. When we went to the Palomar I spent...

Smoking Goat Soho

Mr Frivolitea and I love Thai food so decided on this visit to London to try something new. I'd heard a bit about Smoking Goat and loved the idea of Thai barbecue so we rocked up on the Sunday lunchtime to enjoy some food before getting the train home. I have to be honest that I wasn't sure what to expect when I went through the door. At first glance Smoking...

Lyle’s London

Lyle's has been on the list for some time and our latest visit to London gave us the perfect opportunity to visit as we had arranged to stay in the Brick Lane area of London for the first time. I was rather relieved to be able to book a table as days before the bookings opened it was placed in the top 10 at the National Restaurant Awards. I now...

The Palomar

You know the way I've mentioned before what Mr Frivolitea says about pink neon signs.......      Well this was, yet again, a sign of really really good things. I mean, I knew it was going to be good, Our friend JB has been telling us for months that we need to go and it has just won the people's choice in the Observer Food Monthly awards. However it exceeded...

Blanchette, Soho

I really wanted to try somewhere new on this visit to London and so decided to ask Twitter where we should try. Well Twitter came up trumps, thanks to our friend Tom's contacts. What a great place! Tucked away in Soho, a small place with big personality. We sat at the bar enjoyed a glass of wine and a selection of small plates of fantastic French food. I loved the...

Sesame 

Want to be able to get creative, fresh and interesting food on the run? Well go to Sesame. Sesame sits on Garrick Street a few steps from Leicester Square tube station. The layout reminds me a little of Pret but that's where the similarities end (for those of you who were worried!)     The interior is vibrant and exciting.     Sesame is the latest venture by Yotam Ottolenghi. I'm a...
