Pied a Terre

Pied A Terre, Fitzrovia

The Hoste

The Hoste, Burnham Market, Norfolk

It’s safe to say that any excuse to get out of London and into the countryside is always very welcome and having never been to Norfolk this invitation resulted in two very excited girls on a weekend road trip.


Kouzu, Belgravia

Features Director Andrea Thompson samples what might just be the best sushi restaurant in London.

Hixter Bankside

Hixter Bankside, Southwark

We get pretty excited when a super chef moves into SE1, especially opposite MC HQ. So, when Hixter Bankside opened its doors in August we sent PA to our editor-in-chief over to find out what it had to offer.

Pied Nus, 19 Blandford Street, Marylebone

We headed down to Marylebone to sample the latest offering from the team behind Pied à Terre and L’Autre Pied at new pop-up restaurant Pieds Nus. This worthy off-shoot, which is all about 'naked' cooking, runs until March 11, 2014.


Galvin at Windows, Hilton, Park Lane

It’s a breathtaking view over London from the 28th floor of the Hilton at 22 Park Lane, but that’s not the best thing about Galvin at Windows...


Roka, Charlotte Street

Roka combines great atmosphere with great quality food. A fine place to eat out with friends or for a lively date in London...

Maze Grill, Mayfair

Maze Grill, Mayfair

As the launch of David Beckham’s secret London restaurant venture fast approaches, we visited the Beckhams' favourite Gordon Ramsay eatery and sampled Victoria’s all-time favourite dish.
