After a fairly quiet July and August spent in London, catching up on the blog (but mainly catching up on Gilmore Girls, let’s be honest…), September kicked off a new season of travel. I went to France, Spain, Austria, Italy, Greece and I am about to fly back to Italy next week, then to Portugal and Poland. I say this again and again, but one thing I miss when travelling is eating out in London. I try to keep up with all the new openings, but it’s hard in a city where the restaurant scene is constantly changing.
One of the few restaurants I had the chance to visit recently is the Cambridge Street Kitchen in Pimlico. I was there for brunch a few weeks ago and loved the space, but most of all the coffee and food. So here’s my review of their brunch menu…I hope it will inspire you to visit Cambridge St Kitchen soon!
In June I had the pleasure to spend two days at Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat Saisons, an award-winning hotel and restaurant in heart of the Oxford countryside. Le Manoir, part of Relais & Chateaux, is one of the most luxurious and magnificent country hotels in Britain. Located in the small village of Great Milton, less than two hours away from London, Le Manoir is the perfect destination for a romantic and relaxing weekend away from the city.
Last week I had the pleasure of dining for the first time at Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen, a ‘non-profit’ restaurant and bar near Old Street in London, open since 2002. I had been looking forward to this meal for weeks as many of my friends had already been and loved it. Fifteen met my expectations, I had a fantastic experience and I would love to go back. Read on to know why.
