    Magenta Review

    I had the opportunity to visit Magenta a new Northern Italian Inspired restaurant on Euston Road. The design of the restaurant is a testimony of creativity, balancing old and new, with renowned artist and interior designer Henry Chebaane at the helm who designed the interiors of the iconic 5 Star Megaro Hotel, which occupies the five floors above.  Drawing inspiration from the building’s Victorian heritage, the area’s industrial past, the space formerly occupied by Barclays bank has been transformed into eye catching vintage glamour with steam punk influence throughout.

    Sumosan Twiga – uptown brunch review

    On Saturday we followed the ‘call of the disco ball’ uptown to fashionable Knightsbridge to attend Sumosan Twiga’s Uptown Brunch.

    Park Row Restaurant Review: Fine Dining in Gotham City

    Park Row is an immersive Batman inspired restaurant in London’s Soho. The entrance of the Grade II listed building takes you into Bruce Wayne’s living room/library and then through a secret door, you are transported down into the early twentieth century to the main restaurant.  The decor of The Iceberg Lounge is grand and sophisticated – navy velvet furnishings and crisp white tablecloths give it an Art Deco, Gotham City vibe. The dining area is large and spacious and in its centre is a gorgeous bar with the famous Penguin. A live band playing smooth jazz provides a lovely ambience…
