Saturday brunch dallas
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
Brunching out... If the words “pizza brunch” don’t excite you, then I’m afraid we can never be friends. Forget “cellar door”; I don’t think there are two more beautiful words in the English language. Aside from its euphonic charm, it’s also the main draw at Radici, Francesco Mazzei’s laid-back and slightly cavernous Islington restaurant. The premise is simple: pizza, if you go down that route, along with eggs, pancakes and the option to add on bottomless prosecco for £15 per person. Read more By Chloe brunch review: Vegans need junk food too Funnily enough, it’s the other brunch dishes we enjoy even more than the pizza. “Tuscany meets Puglia” is Eggs in Purgatory’s burlier cousin, boasting a beautifully thick and rich pappa al pomodoro, on top of which sits two white ovoids. Cut into one of them: a poached egg. And the other? Burrata, wonderfully creamy and immediately … [Read more...] about Brunch on Saturday: Radici review: Is there anything more beautiful than a ‘pizza brunch’?
Brunching out... Glasgow’s brunch scene has become something of a spectacle, with bistros and pubs offering a no-frills experience in comparison to Edinburgh’s boujee favourites like eggs benedict, shakshuka and mimosas. Hillhead Bookclub in the city’s West End is no exception, with both food and cocktails aimed towards informality. Based on two levels, the downstairs feels like a traditional American steakhouse, with wooden pews and low lighting creating the perfect casual-yet-structured-enough atmosphere to go with its quirky menu. The upstairs is more lounge like, with board games and mismatched sofas and chairs. The trendy waiters operate in ripped jeans and slogan T-shirts, with the brightly lit bar at the centre serving cocktails with “hilarious” names like Punch Intended and Practice What You Peach out of gramophones. The menu is full of declarations that … [Read more...] about Hillhead Bookclub brunch review: Ignore the pretentions and let the food do the talking
