Bottomless brunches have gone from being a thing only heard of in places like Dubai and London to becoming a huge trend in cities all across the world. And the phenomenon has certainly had a very favourable reaction in Newcastle, with locals and visitors alike, kicking back and enjoying food and plenty of drinks at various brunches across Tyneside. Usually the drink of choice is prosecco but there's a new event launching at a Quayside hotel which widens the net to include another favourite tipple. Malmaison has just revealed its liquid Saturday brunch which invites guests to enjoy two hours of of unlimited prosecco or Heineken, while dining on a tasty treat from the brunch menu and enjoying the company of their nearest and dearest. The hotels claims that "Saturdays will never be the same again!" and we have a feeling they could be right as the brunch looks set to be VERY popular! The brunch plate choices are: Eggs Benedict - sweet cured bacon, flat cap mushroom or smoked salmon Eggs … [Read more...] about Newcastle hotel launches brunch with unlimited prosecco OR lager

Brunching out... At some point in the near future, every food you love will have had a gastro makeover. At least that’s the way it seems, particularly in London, where kebabs are subject to the same She’s All That-style revamp burgers and fried chicken experienced before them. Don’t like what you see and feel shameful eating it? That won’t be the case when you’re in a beautiful Soho restaurant, coerced into using a knife and fork to eat a shawarma. As you might expect, Le Bab, which sits on the top floor of Kingly Court in Soho, is certainly on that end of the spectrum. It’s a lovely space, and one which really benefits from the few weeks of summer sunshine you can experience in London, if you’re especially lucky.

At first glance the menu doesn’t exactly scream brunch: … [Read more...] about Brunch on Saturday: Le Bab review: Do kebabs really need saving?
Brunching out... There are thousands of restaurants in London. New ones are opening – and closing – all the time. It’s almost impossible to keep up. I always wonder how so many seem to be so busy. But competition is fierce and it’s not until you go to a restaurant that’s fairly quiet that you remember that. And to keep busy, location is key. In Soho, queues of super-keen people – stupidly – wait the one-and-a-half hours to get into a tiny restaurant. The best fine dining restaurants have week-long or even month-long waiting lists for a table. While others that have the room can sit empty, until it’s drinking time. And it’s rather a shame when they’re empty and it’s a good restaurant. Sitting at the end of High Street Kensington, as Italian restaurant Enoteca Rosso does, is a bit out-of-the-way. In between High Street Kensington station and Olympia Overground, its saving grace is the newly revamped Design Museum … [Read more...] about Brunch on Saturday: Enoteca Rossa review: Italian chefs know what they’re doing, but locals don’t
