Monsieur Le Duck

Monsieur Le Duck

February 19, 2019 Restaurants

The people of Gascony tend to live longer than the rest of the French (and English). The reason for this is unclear but many posit that it’s down to their duck diet. Aiming to champion the anatine in Britain’s capital, three frequent travellers to the region have launched Monsieur Le Duck on Brushfield Street which will run as a six month pop-up. Offering an excellent no-frills menu serving classic southern French fare, we ducked in to see if it had legs.

London's Best Roasts

London's Best Roasts

February 5, 2019 By Nick Savage Restaurants

As British as British can be, the roast is the clearly the country’s favoured meal for a Sunday. So much so, that it’s the French’s preferred racial epithet for denizens of Albion. Little do they know that over the past few years, it’s been raised to a new art form, one that does British cuisine very proud. Innerplace has helped us curate a list of their top spots in the capital for a Sunday roast.

Ritorno - Covent Garden

Ritorno - Covent Garden

January 28, 2019 Restaurants

There’s always plenty of room in London for a relaxed Italian, and Ritorno is just that. Following its initial opening in Chelsea, it’s opened another branch in Covent Garden, serving Milanese-inspired fare to a hungry mix of locals and tourists. Ideal for pre-theatre dining or aperitivo, this new spot offers plenty of al fresco seating and two separate private dining options for anyone looking to hold a special event, just moments away from the Royal Opera House and Royal Ballet.

ULI - Notting Hill

ULI - Notting Hill

December 19, 2018 Restaurants

With the rise of regional Asian cuisines, pan-Asian has slipped slightly out of fashion, but there are still a number of outliers doing very well. ULI in Notting Hill is one of them. Rather than creating a mish-mash of various countries’ cooking they have painstakingly curated a selection of dishes from the Chinese, Thai, Malay and Singaporean disciplines. And with the addition of a robata grill they look well situated to feed west London for years to come.

Senate Room at the Royal Academy - Mayfair

Senate Room at the Royal Academy - Mayfair

December 19, 2018 Restaurants

Dining at an art museum doesn’t always inspire the same awe as the artwork inside of it. It can often feel a bit too convenient, as if it’s playing second fiddle to the museum itself. However, some places put in the requisite investment of time and effort to pull off a masterstroke, a restaurant that complements the museum in which it’s situated. We were wondering which category the Senate Room at the Royal Academy would fall into during our visit…

If you keep your ear to the ground and pay attention to industry trends, you’ll surely have heard of the burgeoning Filipino foodie scene in London. Long celebrated in the US, it’s starting to get a foothold in Britain, and one of the latest launches to stir the pot is Kinilaw & Buko. Opened at 100 Hoxton Street by chef Francis Puyat, he’s created a menu that pays homage to the home-style cooking of his native country.

London's Best: New Year's Eve 2018/2019

December 12, 2018

Prepare in advance and New Year’s Eve can be the best night of your year. Leave it until the last minute and you might be slumming it in a Wetherspoon’s. At Innerplace, we have our ear to the ground, drumming out news of NYE parties in the summer, which gives us the jump on curating lists like these that detail the best luxury parties in the capital.

Buns & Buns - Covent Garden

Buns & Buns - Covent Garden

December 4, 2018 Restaurants

Covent Garden isn’t exactly starved for fast casual options, but when we were invited to new launch Buns & Buns, we thought we’d drop in to see if it was a worthy addition to a fierce marketplace. Imported from Miami by Frenchman Alex Zibi, the restaurants specialises in grab and go buns and bread running the gamut from dim sum to Taiwanese bao to pala romana. We settled into the cosy room by sipping a couple of margaritas – one spiked with chilli and one sweetened with lychee – while perusing the menu and vibing off the energy of Covent Garden piazza.

Bassoon Bar - Embankment

Bassoon Bar - Embankment

Bars

The Corinthia is a special hotel. Not only does it host a litany of famous faces (we crossed paths with Kurt Russell in the entryway on our latest visit), it also hosts some of the top names in gastronomy. One Tom Kerridge springs to mind. So it’s fitting that they tipped two of the top minds in wine and cocktails to helm the bar. Michael Sager of Sager and Wilde has put together with champagne list, while Marcis Dzelzainis of Satan’s Whiskers, 69 Colebrooke Row and Dandelyan has created the playlist and NOLA inspired classic cocktails.
