Toast and roast
For an incredibly memorable Sunday lunch experience, Bistro Bleu has combined the craftsmanship of French cuisine with the authentic flavours of a classic, British roast. The French-leaning bistro, which sits above Bloomsbury's Rugby Tavern, famished diners can enjoy an impeccable three-course meal for £36pp, with an additional £5pp for a carafe of the house red, white or rosé. In this truly charming setting, you can choose to begin with a tantalising choice of appetisers including chicken liver parfait and devilled whitebait. Sumptuous slices of Scottish striploin, pork belly or chicken await you at main course, which of course, are served with all the traditional trimmings, including crispy roast potatoes, maple roasted root vegetables, buttered greens, Yorkshire pudding and a rosemary and thyme gravy. Vegetarians won't be left wanting either, with a mouthwatering roasted butternut, kale and mushroom wellington option. And, when the time comes to finish on a sweet note, you cannot look past the sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce - delicious!
Searcys Champagne Bar has officially opened its doors in Battersea’s historic Power Station, bringing an extensive list of bubbles and sparkling wine to South London. Served alongside bite-sized British delicacies including Colchester Rock & Native oysters, and a selection of delectable sharing platters, this venue exudes opulence, making it the perfect backdrop for any special occasion.
Belgrava's award-winning hotel The Hari has announced the return of The Hari Art Prize for 2023. Now in it's second year, the competition seeks to champion young artists, offering them access to some of the most highly-regarded figures in the art world. Irene Bradbury, Senior Director of White Cube, will judge the competition in collaboration with A Space for Art. The exhibition of shortlisted artists is currently available to view at the hotel, with the winner announced later this month.
All The Trimmings
One of London's most beloved bagel outposts has launched a festive offering which puts a creative spin on your traditional Christmas menu. Available at all three B Bagel stores, you bite into a mouthwatering bagel filled with sliced turkey breast with stuffing and cranberry sauce or opt for the vegetarian filling with brie, stuffing and cranberry sauce.
Taste Of Italy
Mayfair has found a true taste of 1960s Italy in its latest restaurant opening, Il Gattopardo. Boasting a courtyard terrace, private dining room and incredibly chic interiors, this venue is offering a transportive experience for both your eyes and palate. Savour a range of Italian fare including tuna crudo, succulent veal magatello, truffle mascarpone pizza and lemon tart, drizzled in limoncello. Buonissimo!

AIME has released a new range of collagen-based powders to brighten skin, strengthen hair and nails, and promote a lit-from-within glow. Available in six variations — with flavour profiles including matcha, mocha and cacao — they can be effortlessly stirrred into everything from smoothies to coffee , making it a delicious, ingestible skincare option.
Launching exclusively in Selfridges, Belvedere 10 is the newest luxury vodka to enter the drinks world. With a bottle which is strikingly sculpture-like in design, it is as intricate as the tipple’s ten-step creation process. Retailing at £185, this drop is the perfect accompaniment to festive tablescapes.
Chelsea’s New Deli
On Monday 6th November, Le Deli by Joël Robuchon International will open its doors at a brand new outpost in Kings Road, Chelsea. Offering French-style deli fare from breakfast until late, (where it transforms into a wine and charcuterie spot), it is sure to become one of West London’s most bustling shopfronts.
Looking to indulge in a few pre-Christmas festivities? Mayfair's Novikov Restaurant and Bar is hosting its annual Christmas Market, transforming into a winter wonderland for three days, from the 23rd to the 25th November.
