Review of Dstrkt

by CALEIGH HALL DSTRKT ~ 9 Rupert Street London W1D 6DG, United Kingdom The Place: In the heart of the bustling Piccadilly neighbourhood lies Dstrkt – a swanky restaurant by day, and base-bumping club by night. George Yaneff (formerly of Bazaar Restaurant by the famous Jose Andres and SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills) is at the […]

Review of Weslodge

by CALEIGH HALL Weslodge 480 King Street West, Toronto Ontario, M5V 1L7 The Place: Weslodge Saloon is the latest King West mega-restaurant from owners Hanif Harji and Charles Khabouth (from such entertainment hot spots like This is London and Guvernment). The intention of the restaurant is clear – to build Toronto’s only upscale saloon for […]

Review of The Grove

by CALEIGH HALL The Grove, 1214 Dundas Street West Toronto The Place: Dundas West’s latest hipster haunt taking on modern English food in a comfy, humble setting. The Mood: Light and inviting, as if you were invited over to a friend’s house for dinner. There were people of all ages, shapes and sizes, making it […]

Review of Grand Electric

by CALEIGH HALL Grand Electric, 1330 Queen Street West Toronto, ON M6K 1L4, (416) 627-3459 The Place: Since it opened earlier this year, Grand Electric has been the Mexican taquieria sensation that has caught the hearts and wallets of the Toronto foodie following. Situated in the up-and-coming area of Parkdale, patience pays off here as […]

Review of Alma’s

By DAISY MIERS Alma’s, 30 Borough High Street, London, SE1 1XU The Place: A tiny, would-walk-past-it-every-day-without-a-second-glance, hole-in-the-wall, but an amazing place to stumble upon. The Mood: I have only been for lunch, but I wouldn’t say it has a defined ambience. There are cute little lights on the wall and random art, but that’s combined […]

The Albion

By DAISY MIERS The Albion 10 Thornhill Road, Islington, London, N1 1HW The Place: A pub tucked-away in a beautiful area of Islington. It is very secluded, but well known due to its’ extremely large beer garden, which often has a two week waiting list for Sunday afternoons in the summer and a large interior with […]

Review of Caravan

By DAISY MIERS Caravan, No 11-13 Exmouth Market, London EC1R 4QD The Place: Quite a swanky and ‘in demand’ hot spot. This is a great place for a meal when you crave something a bit more extraordinary, as the food is consistently delicious. However, you need to be willing to pay that bit extra for […]

Review of The Saint

by CALEIGH HALL The Saint, 227 Ossington Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M6J 2Z8 The Place: The newest restaurant to hit the Ossington strip, The Saint touts itself as a Tavern offering french bistro type food. The Mood: Hard to describe, but it felt a bit forced. I was expecting a dark and cozy tavern, but felt like I was […]

Galvin ~ Bistrot de Luxe

By DAISY MIERS Galvin 66 Baker Street, London, W1U 7DJ The Place: One of the well known French family Galvin Restaurants. They are all Michelin starred and this is, I believe, the original one and the least formal of them all – hence the bistrot. The Mood: Noticeably cosy, warm and busy right away. We had […]

The Narrow Boat ~ A Bit Too Narrow?

By DAISY MIERS The Narrow Boat, 119 Saint Peter’s Street, Islington, London, N1 8PZ The Place: A canal side pub that is a great spot in the summer where you can grab a pint, and sit on the canal with the ducks and swans passing by. It is actually the first pub I went to, […]
