Balls & Company – Soho The brainchild of Australian-born chef Bonny Porter, Balls & Company will be the first Soho restaurant to offer a gourmet menu that’s focused on Meatballs.

Restaurant Review – ROKA Aldwych

By Jonathan Hatchman, Food Editor, @TLE_Food Tying in with the tenth anniversary of ROKA’s first restaurant on London’s Charlotte Street, ROKA Aldwych opened its doors last Summer. Marking the newest and biggest of the ROKA restaurants from Rainer Becker and Arjun Waney, the team behind Zuma. Situated just moments from The Strand and London’s Theatre District, offering a reasonable pre-theatre menu, it’s no wonder that the restaurant has become so popular over the past year.

Restaurant Review – Bob Bob Ricard

By Jonathan Hatchman, Food Editor, @TLE_Food Sadly, very few high-end London restaurant offer guests the chance to feast upon a luxurious Beef Wellington. However, when the traditional British dish does make its way onto a menu, this writer can barely contain his excitement, even if a triple-figure bill does often entail, and thankfully the standout dish at Bob Bob Ricard does not disappoint. Since opening at the tail end of 2008, the English/Russian Soho restaurant has managed to impress its...

Restaurant Review – Dabbous

By Jonathan Hatchman, Food Editor, @TLE_Food Just a short walk around the corner from Goodge Street Underground Station, through the gaggle of workers spending the lunch rush congregated outside Tesco Express, turn the corner once more onto Whitfield Street and you’ll find Dabbous, one of Central London’s most celebrated restaurants.

By Jonathan Hatchman, Food Editor, @TLE_Food Home to the Prime Meridian, a bustling market that’s been trading since the 14th Century, Christopher Wren’s Architectural masterpieces Royal Observatory and the Royal Naval College, as well as The O2 Arena: Greenwich is a global tourist hotspot, yet there’s still a criminal lack of good quality restaurants. The Market itself contains a wondrous selection of street food stalls, but if you’re local and plan on eating out anytime during the week or after about...

Restaurant Review – Avenue

By Joe Mellor, Deputy Editor If I’m honest I have never seen an episode of Sex and City, but the idea of the glamour and glitz of dining and drinking in Manhattan does appeal, but I guess it does for almost everyone. Well, The Avenue restaurant on St James’s Street, just off of Piccadilly offers just that. The building looks the part, to be fair it already did, as it was originally designed by American architect Rick Mather in 1996....

Restaurant Review – Tartufi & Friends, London

By Jonathan Hatchman, Food Editor, @TLE_Food As Aristotle wrote, Truffles were “a fruit sacred to Aphrodite”. The luxurious Fungi may have become the Foodie equivalent to Bread and Butter in recent years, but Truffles have a deep Historic lineage and have always been a highly prized ingredient. Many fine restaurant kitchens will use the odd shaving here and there, yet Tartufi & Friends have always been dedicated to celebrating the Truffle, used munificently in almost every one of their dishes....
