Bubbledogs – Hot dogs and Champagne

I love pairing high-end stuff with low-end; flash with trash! The pairing of the two opposites only goes to enhance both, a top shop dress can work fabulously with a pair of Jimmy Choos, truffles work so well on pizza and an Ikea lamp fits effortlessly into a London penthouse. Its great to mix the… Read more »

Chotto Matte – London’s latest hotspot

Restaurants are always opening and closing in London and at the moment it seems like new restaurants are lucky to make it past the six month mark. That’s why my favourites will always be the classics, which I return to again and again: Hakkasan, Nobu, Roka and Zuma. These places always deliver and tick all… Read more »

But sometimes you stumble across somewhere really unique and individual: like San Domenico House.  Though I’d known of the hotel for years; I’d never actually visited, so when I was invited to a night celebrating San Domenico… Read more »

Kurobuta London – Sushi pops up on The King’s Road

I love the London restaurant scene, but one thing that is lacking is a reasonably priced, high quality sushi place. Nobu, Zuma and Roka are fab but they’re not for everyday and the less expensive places like Yo Sushi and Itsu don’t deliver on quality. A couple of weeks ago Mr Silver and I visited… Read more »
