Flat Iron, Soho

I’m probably a bit late to jump on the band wagon here but, I’ve been to Flat Iron! I have attempted to go to Flat Iron before now, however it is one of these no reservations places that seem to take several attempts to actually get the chance to eat in. This time however we had a plan….

Kettner’s Brasserie, Soho

Planning my latest dinner date with my best friend, we couldn’t decide where to go so rather than trying somewhere new, we settled on an old favourite that we both love: Kettner’s. We’d not been for a while and I was vey much looking forward to going back to the luxurious and stylish townhouse in…

Shelley’s Café, Soho

Having recently changed jobs, sadly Soho is no longer my stomping ground and I have a whole new area of cafés and restaurants to explore (not that far away) up in Fitzrovia. Before I left however, I made sure to stop by Shelley’s, one of my favourite lunch stops, as it’s nothing short of criminal…

Inamo, Soho

Sometimes when you’re going out for dinner you don’t just want a good meal to fill your belly, sometimes it’s about trying new things and turning it into an experience. A dining experience is precisely what you get at Inamo.   The Boyfriend and I decided to go Japanese for our date night a few…

Snowflake, Soho

Yes I’ve been skipping the dessert menu in order to go and find more exciting puddings again! Snowflake is yet another great gelato shop in Soho. I actually wasn’t aware of Snowflake until I was making my way to a dinner reservation the other week when I noticed it and decided to come back later…

Mediterranean Café, Soho

Finding somewhere good to eat in Soho is not difficult, but what is difficult is finding somewhere where the food is excellent, reasonably priced and you can actually get a table without queuing for an hour or putting your name on a waiting list. You’d be forgiven for thinking such a place doesn’t exist, but…

Freebird Burritos, Berwick St Market

As much as I’m a massive foodie, I am also a creature of habit and repeatedly visit the same places over and over when I’m looking for lunch in Soho during the week when I’m working. One of my favourite cafés has recently closed down and its given me just the excuse I needed to…

Dean St Pizza Showdown Part II: Soho Joe

Welcome, at last, to my second edition of the (not very official) Dean Street Pizza Showdown. After a delightful evening in the recently established Pizza Pilgrims last month, last week I paid a visit to the second restaurant on my list: Soho Joe. I’ve been a regular at Soho Joe for a number of years…

Amorino, Soho

I’ve been known to say this before, so I risk repeating myself, but I am generally of the opinion that most restaurants have really similar and generally fairly boring dessert menus. There’s usually a chocolate cake, a crème brûlée, a cheesecake and a limited selection of ice cream. Therefore now I quite regularly pay up after…

Dean St Pizza Showdown Part I: Pizza Pilgrims

Last month Pizza Pilgrims opened up shop in a great spot on Dean St, a stone’s throw from Soho Square and directly opposite Pizza Express’ iconic Jazz Club. An interesting choice of location for a new pizza restaurant. It then occurred to me that just down the road you also have Soho Joe, a buzzing…
