Restaurant Reviews from August 2013

  • Fish Market

    Friday August 30th, 2013

    The D & D restaurants are all a bit different in style, but all seem to aim at being somewhere to rely on, whether it’s towards the high end at Cog d’Argent or a little bit touristy like the Butlers Wharf Chop House.  Fish Market seems to be swimming right in the middle.

  • Tartufo, 11 Cadogan Gardens, Chelsea

    Tuesday August 27th, 2013

    Truffle-loving to the maximum at the rather fine establishment of Tartufo

  • The Dysart Arms, Petersham

    Friday August 23rd, 2013

    The Dysart Arms is an old arts and crafts style pub that’s a pub no longer. Like so many it found it couldn’t survive on beer alone and so has changed hands and gone gourmet. A resulting internal refurb suffers a bit from the curse of Farrow & Ball, but they’ve resisted the temptation to paint absolutely everything cream.

  • Lady Ottoline

  • Lasan, Birmingham

    Monday August 19th, 2013

    Birmingham's award-winning Indian restaurant is visited by Brummie turned Londoner Marcus

  • The Big Easy, Chelsea

    Monday August 19th, 2013

    Good old fashioned food done in the American way. Big portions of big meat means that sending Big Marcus to have a look is a rather good fit.

  • Mango Tree and Pan Chai at Harrods London

    Sunday August 11th, 2013

    You don’t eat cheap in Harrods Food Halls; from steaks to sashimi the prices make your eyes water and the water isn’t cheap either. It’s the kind of spending excess that makes dreadlocked white kids put wheelie bins through the windows of banks before heading off to pay £11 for a gourmet burger.

  • Heliot Steakhouse

    Wednesday August 7th, 2013

    A casino in central London may not seem the most obvious place for a ‘gourmet steakhouse’, but Heliot restaurant and bar, located in the Hippodrome Casino, Leicester Square, has managed to create a balance of food and cocktails with a side of blackjack.
