the fable

A Fictional Food Affair at The Fable

A short fictional story, often featuring mythical creatures and plants is how you would best describe a fable. The Fable restaurant in Farringdon stays true to its origins online where it's described as being ‘inspired by the fantasy world of fairy tales.’ To me this conjures up a quirky environment full of mystery and wonder and so I was intrigued as to what lay ahead.

A chocolate boutique full of devilish delights

Like Hansel and Gretel’s discovery of a house laden with treats within a forest, I discovered a shop full of indulgence on the edge of Regent’s Park. The Choconut boutique was just as deadly with its lavish window display full of highly decorative confectionery and a large chocolate fountain to lure you in.

A fresh approach to Italian food in a world class venue

When selecting a location for a pre-show dinner, there's no better choice than within the venue itself, particularly when it sits inside one of the world’s most historic buildings. The venue in question is the Royal Albert Hall, which houses the charming Verdi Italian kitchen.

Beautify Yourself at Beauty Works

If you’re after an affordable, professional hair or beauty treatment in North London, Beauty Works in Crouch End is the choice for you. Beauty Works is one of the leading health and beauty clinics in London, which comes as no surprise as they offer such a broad range of beauty services. Set up by cosmetologist, Tracey Smyth, they clearly put their clients first keeping it open everyday, up until 8pm during the week to make it as convenient as possible to visit after work.

From Russia with Love

A midweek launch involving quaffing berry infused vodka and dining on caviar is one way to spice up a rather mundane week. This was all thanks to Alexei Zimin, one of Russia’s most celebrated chefs who just launched Zima, his new street food bar and kitchen.

Pan Asian Perfection

From the bustling streets of Bangkok to Malaysian markets, street food in Asia has always been considered such an everyday existence. However, when it comes to pan Asian food in the UK, which is now a huge part of the London restaurant scene, its street food concept is neglected bringing elegance to an everyday trade.

Reform Social and Grill

Culinary Pampering in 'Gentleman's Club'

Situated on James Street, Marylebone, known for its high density of trendy restaurants and designer boutiques with the famous Chiltern Firehouse in close proximity, we had high expectations for the Reform Social and Grill. Housed in the grand Mandeville Hotel with its pillared entrance, it was a very opulent setting with deep red-leather upholstered sofas and mahogany flooring.
