  • La Tagliata

    Monday November 24th, 2014

    Some restaurants take the philosophy of becoming synonymous with a dish, a style, a cuisine, a theme or an ethos to an extreme - serving only a single dish. It’s a brave decision; anyone who nails their their colours to a particular mask had better know what they’re doing. Thankfully, La Tagliata - a small Italian restaurant that calls the rabbit warrens between Liverpool Street and Spitalfields Market home - does, at least where their main course is concerned.

  • Nozomi

    Sunday November 23rd, 2014

    Nozomi is a Japanese restaurant, serving up (in their words) ‘contemporary Japanese cuisine’ and ‘eclectic cocktails’. While I don’t know nearly enough about Japanese food to give credence to the first statement - they served sushi, sashimi and tempura, what more do you want? - I can safely say the cocktails were eclectic.

    Every spirit under the sun is on offer here, mixed with every fruit money can buy. Although we tried a few, including the watermelon bumbum and a fruit cocktail that floated in a small bowl of ice, my favourite was possibly the simplest - the Japanese Old Fashioned. That said, as well as whisky and sake, they had flavoured this with hints of caramel and a stick of ginger, so not that simple after all. A nice strong drink, that takes a good while to sip, the caramel gave a sweeter than usual taste, while the ginger left a medicinal aura. Mmm...medicinal.

  • Roxie Steak

    Sunday November 23rd, 2014

    The branch of Roxie in Clapham is a small blink and you'll miss it sort of a place, with a clean, red-boothed interior and a friendly attentive staff. The menu is small too, the focus clear - meat, and plenty of it.

    Slap bang in the middle of that A4 sheet is a half kilo of flesh with accompanying sides: The Beast. For £15 that's a meat-feast rivalling Bodeans for value. The steak sits quietly to one side of the menu, perhaps overshadowed by its bigger redder meat platter brothers. Look closer though and you're in for a surprise. Do your eyes deceive you? 7oz fillet steak for £13.95?! That's either insanity or a misprint - thankfully it's the former.

  • Le Café

    Saturday November 8th, 2014

    On my last visit to the Sofitel, Gatwick Airport I sampled classical French fine dining at La Brasserie, a delicious but deceptively rich meal that left me feeling like I might prevent the plane from taking off the next morning. This time, en route to my Greek Island getaway, the ever-helpful Holiday Extras crew have booked me into Le Café, where I get to sample the delights of Parisian street food in the hotel’s airy atrium.
