  • birthday lunch at the ledbury

    Regardless of what Santa might decide come Christmas day, judging by how utterly spoilt I’ve been for my birthday, I must have been very good this year… or I’m just surrounded by the best people. Probably the latter.

    The best of the best being, of course, my incredible husband E. He always spoils me rotten (not just on special occasions, and I don’t mean in a material sense – he does a lot for me, all the time), and he knows me so well. He’d already gifted me a dreamy present from when we went to New York (I am subsequently obsessed with all things Henri Bendel), so I definitely did not expect him to take me out for what was the best lunch I’ve ever had in London. A bold statement, and one that means it surpassed the likes of Alain Ducasse (ok, only by a hair, but still) and l’Atelier de Joel Robuchon

  • roux at the landau

    The London restaurant scene has been even busier this past few weeks thanks to London Restaurant Festival, and with good reason – so many of the city’s favourite restaurants have great deals going on, and it’s the perfect excuse to try out some new places, as well as revisit your regular haunts. 

    Although I haven’t been able to take advantage of the festival as I would have liked, I’ve been able to enjoy somewhere I’ve already tried and love (Sticks ‘n’ Sushi!), and to have a real treat of a meal at Roux at The Landau, a place that was new to me. I booked through Bookatable for the deal, although I think this is actually available during limited times beyond LRF, which is great. The menu includes 3 courses, petit fours, and half a bottle of wine per person for £45, which I think is pretty reasonable for a fine dining restaurant of this calibre.
