TO THE HUNGRIEST BIGGER GO THE SPOILS!
Whilst the London restaurant scene thrives, it can be easy to forget that not everyone in the world has enough food to eat. On 7th May, from 7pm the Auction Against Hunger will be held on the roof of Shoreditch House in collaboration with humanitarian organisation Action Against Hunger. Calling upon some of the restaurant industry’s biggest names, the event will raise money for some of the world’s most malnourished children.
HIGH(EST) TEA IN LONDON: PARAMOUNT LAUNCHES HIGH TEA 32 FLOORS ABOVE SOHO
High tea is taken to another level at Paramount, the restaurant and bar at the tip of Centre Point. Ascend 32 floors and enjoy its all-new high tea – the highest in London, no less – with 360-degree views of the capital.
Whether with leaves (£28) or with bubbles (£42), high tea here is a welcome respite from the buzzing, chaotic streets below – from a quick pit-stop between shopping or a more languid, all-afternoon affair. Set against striking interiors by design don Tom Dixon – featuring a showstopping copper-clad bar and loungey, stay-a-while seating – Paramount’s take is presented in the tiered way with plate after plate of sweet and savoury delights.
AN EGG-CELLENT WAY TO CELEBRATE EASTER
Cinnamon Soho Launches All-Ball, Easter Egg-Inspired Menu
One of life’s age-old questions is this: what came first, the chicken or the egg? The answer is neither; it’s Cinnamon Soho, which revolutionised the standard Scotch egg with its signature Indian-inspired range of ‘balls’ – including the now-famous Bangla Scotch Egg.
Included in ‘The 100 Best Small Dishes in London 2012’ category by Time Out, the Bangla Scotch Egg has become a firm favourite with executive chef Vivek Singh’s non-feathered fans and has been used as the starting point for an all-ball, Easter egg-inspired menu.
INTRODUCING SUSHINHO TO THE CITY
Sushinho, on the City’s Devonshire Square, just a stone’s throw from Liverpool Street, is the second outpost from the team who brought Brazilian-Japanese food to London. Forget ‘fusion’, Sushinho blends Japanese ﬁnesse and Brazilian ﬂair offering an exciting range of contemporary dishes without calling for a choice between the two.
What may appear an odd coupling is actually a unique culinary hybrid born on the streets of Rio and São Paulo. At their King’s Road restaurant, the team has spent the past four years enlightening Londoners to what 1.6 million Japanese people have been eating in Brazil since an inﬂux of immigration in the early 20th Century and now they are sharing their culinary secrets with the City.
SUSHINHO AND THE CITY
Sushinho, the ﬁrst restaurant to bring Brazilian-Japanese food to London, will open its second outpost in the City in February 2013.
Seemingly an odd couple, Japanese cuisine is more at home in Brazil than you might think and the team behind Sushinho has spent four years championing Brazil’s vibrant Japanese culture at its Chelsea restaurant and bar – opening Londoners’ eyes to what 1.6 million Japanese people have been eating on the streets of Rio and São Paulo since the inﬂux of immigration in the early 20th century. In fact, São Paulo is home to the largest Japanese population outside of Japan.
A FASHIONABLY 5* GLUTEN-FREE AFTERNOON TEA
Legs crossed, check. Must have ‘it bag’ at feet, definitely. Serious fashion face, tick. Fabulous accessorising, for sure. Whilst these are the trademarks of London Fashion Week’s front-rowers, fashionistas everywhere, along with the capital’s carb-conscious, can enjoy the delicious gluten-free afternoon tea from Michelin-starred chef William Drabble of the luxury five star St James’ Hotel & Club.
DINE WITH A DIFFERENCE AT A GRELHA
A Grelha, London’s most anticipated alfresco grill, has re-opened at the award-winning Docklands pub, The Gun for the summer. With sweeping riverside views on a south facing decked terrace, A Grelha will bring you an authentic taste of the Algarve from a menu inspired by owners Tom and Ed Martin and their memories of many visits to Southern Portugal.
THIS COUNTRY HAS GONE TO THE DOGS
This June, Queen Elizabeth II will mark her 60-year reign with a Diamond Jubilee celebration to remember (Saturday 2nd – Tuesday 5th June).
COME DINE WITH US AT ANNIE’S
When you visit Annie’s, two restaurants that are enviably located within the leafy south west London suburbs of Chiswick and Barnes, you’ll be tempted to sing the theme tune from Cheers, because they genuinely are always glad you came.
The décor: cosy and welcoming, the service: familiar yet professional and the menu: brasserie-style with British and Mediterranean influences, from brunch through to dinner. All in all they create two quintessentially home-from-home neighbourhood restaurants.
