Ruby Jean’s at The Royal George review – pubco Americana for drunks

Food fit only for pissheads I usually see a slight dip in the number of visitors to my website over the weekend largely due, I suspect, to most of you getting hammered to blot out the horrors of the preceding five days. Those memories of the working week aren’t going to obliterate themselves, after all. … Continue reading

The Wild Game Co review – venison Fitzrovia pop-up

Some restauranteurs take a long-winded path to opening their own premises, either by choice or necessity, starting off with a street food stall before moving on to pop-ups and eventually their own permanent patch.

Galeto review – Brazilian street food comes to Dean Street

A party in my mouth or a damp squib? Update 28/03/2016 – this restaurant has now closed I’ve never seen the appeal of Nando’s. As far I’m concerned the seemingly ubiquitous chain serves unremarkable but acceptable chicken. My occasional dining companion Snoop Dogg explained Nando’s to me as ‘comfort food in grown up surroundings with … Continue reading

Hawksmoor Spitalfields Bar review – new meat and cheese menu

Bar-gain or bar-baric? (Sorry.) I’ve eaten at and written about the Hawksmoor mini-chain of steakhouses at length before on this blog. What makes Hawksmoor so interesting, apart from the sheer quality of most of the dishes, is that each branch is a little different from the others. For example, the Air Street branch does some … Continue reading
