A fashionable meal – Nobu Berkeley

Nobu is one of those trendy restaurants that everyone has heard about. It has so many locations now it isn’t really that inaccessible anymore. Usually, that means the food is compromised. I can’t vouch for any of the other Nobu restaurants around the world, but the two Nobu restaurants that I have been to in London still continue to serve some stellar food. Usually, I prefer to go to the smaller, quieter, slightly less pretentious feeling Nobu London on Park …

A fashionable meal – Burger and Lobster

Anyone who lives in London (and loves eating) should have heard of ‘Burger and Lobster’ by now. One weekend, we decided it was time to try it. As it was an uncharacteristically nice day in London, we decided to stroll through the park. I wore my ‘Lilly’ scarf for the slight windy chill, and since we were only going to eat, I didn’t need a big bag so I used my ‘Maya’ clutch.           Burger and …

A fashionable meal – Dinner by Heston

Kitchen W8 was the second restaurant after Alain Ducasse that my husband and I decided to go for the special deal. 3 courses for £24.50! We had been before with a friend …

A fashionable meal – HIX Oyster and Chop House

The first date my husband and I had in London was at ‘HIX Oyster and Chop House’ for none other than the supposed most romantic day of the year – Valentine’s day. Normally, both my husband, Shaun, and I do not really celebrate Valentine’s day, but this time we thought it was a good excuse to try out a great restaurant here and go on our first ‘date’ in London. It was a rainy Sunday night, the night before Valentine’s …

A Fashionable Meal – Chocolate kkomz Korean restaurant

Firstly, I apologise for my very long hiatus from posts. I have been distracted and busy with the London move and finishing up work at Karen Willis Holmes (best wedding gown company ever!) So, to kick off my ‘come back’ – I have a very special post today. Anyone who knows me, knows I love food. They know that I am happiest eating good food. That I do not have any qualms about spending a whole week’s wages on a …
