    Cicchetti Covent Garden

    When my friend and I wandered into Cicchetti one fine autumnal evening little did we know the gastronomic delight our evening would hold. Cicchetti is part of the San Carlo Group, and their restaurant in Covent Garden is a new addition to the Italian family. The Cicchetti mantra is simple; eat fresh and share. The word ‘cicchetti’ is used to describe small Venetian plates which complement larger ones, however the small plates at Cicchetti need no accompaniment as they shine alone.

    Les Deux Salons

    As Mother Nature hands her reins to winter, the nights are getting darker, the days are getting colder, and my hands are slowly turning deeper shades of purple! However this just means when dining out a lovely warming restaurant is of utmost importance! With this in mind, in a rather lucky turn of events we stumbled upon Les Deux Salons. Tucked away off Charring Cross Road on William IV Street this beautiful brasserie oozes French sophistication from every pore. However the menu does not boast only classic brasserie lore.

Tonkotsu ramen’s smooth, silky consistency is created by cooking pork bones for up to 18 hours,…
