Out & About Alice Hancock 30 Nov 2018 Read on The best restaurants in Islington Alice Hancock Old-timers will tell you that in the past 25 years, Shoreditch has become a wildly different place from the rough-and-ready corner of east London it once was. Along with all the tech companies and startups has come a host of good restaurants. Many London favourites have found their way here: Brindisa, Andina, Flat Iron, Dishoom (I would rate this Dishoom as the best), Suvlaki and Homeslice all have homes in Shoreditch. Plus there are plenty of new openings in Redchurch Street. The area around there (which includes Brick Lane) could probably give restaurant-rich Soho a run for its money these days. FOOD AND FUN Radio Alice’s high quality pizza Radio Alice Unlike most of the rest of London’s pizzerias, Radio Alice doesn’t do Neapolitan pizza. It says the recipe is from Bologna, although for the casual pizza eater there’s not much in it. The … [Read more...] about The best restaurants in Shoreditch

Out & About Alice Hancock 08 Aug 2018 Read on London’s best chef’s tables Olivia Williams Brixton offers one of London’s most exciting and eclectic food scenes. The main hub of restaurants is to be found in Brixton Village and Market Row, but there are plenty of other great places to try further afield. Here’s a guide to the best of them… In the Village Mamalan (Getty) Salon Brixton If Salon was my local restaurant, I’d be broke. Not because it’s wildly expensive (in fact it’s very good value) but because it demands repeat visits. There’s one menu – offering either four or seven courses – and it changes monthly, with weekly tweaks. When I visited in spring, octopus with monk’s beard and rhubarb sorbet were the order of the day (plus house nduja croquettes). The chirpy team of staff all seem to have eaten at Salon and have come to work there as a result. Surely a good sign. Naughty Piglets … [Read more...] about The best restaurants in Brixton

Food Alice Hancock 16 Apr 2018 Read on Bristol’s gastronomic revolution Alice Hancock Chelsea is a rarefied end of town. The old streets behind Cheyne Walk and around the Physic Garden are some of London’s most charming, while the King’s Road has for a long time been known as the place to be seen. When it comes to restaurants, cheap eats are fewer and further between than other parts of London, but with hefty prices often comes quality. There’s a notable focus on organic produce and the countryside – possibly testament to Chelsea’s proximity to the M4 headed west. A few of the UK’s best known chefs have set up shop in the area and Chelsea is home to some of the city’s prettiest eateries. As ever, the following list of recommendations is just for starters… Café culture A Daylesford lunch is served (Instagram) Bluebird Bluebird was once an art deco garage owned by 1920s racing legend Sir Malcolm Campbell. … [Read more...] about The best restaurants in Chelsea
