The Duke of Richmond, Hackney
Though the Duke of Richmond weren't to know it, the success or failure of our entire evening at this handsome new(ish) gastropub in Hackney rested on one dish. Fairly or unfairly (alright then, unfairly, really), the moment I spotted "Cornish crab butty" on...

Chicken Shop, Holborn
It occurred to me the other day that a good number of the "wishlist" dishes or cuisines I've griped about not having access to in London over the years have, gradually, one-by-one, been ticked off. For a while it was burgers, where years of crushed hopes an...

Bar Néstor, San Sebastián
If I were to follow properly in the footsteps of the countless food bloggers and writers that have beaten a path to San Sebastián's old town before, by rights this would be a multi-part post covering a good selection of the best pinxo bars, from the mini ha...

Asador Etxebarri, Spain
On the face of it, the restaurants that form the 50 Best list (have a gander here ) are a satisfyingly diverse bunch. From the nostalgia-driven Modern Italian of Osteria Francescana, to the jungle-foraged idiosyncrasy of Lima's Central and the international...

La Despensa del Etxanobe, Bilbao
We flew to Bilbao the day the 2019 Michelin awards for Spain and Portugal were released. As much as I wish it wasn't sometimes (in fact make that most of the time), the Red Guide is unquestionably the most significant and prestigious recognition a chef work...

Fordwich Arms (revisited), Canterbury
If the idea this month was to revisit a few "old" favourites, the year-old Fordwich Arms shouldn't really qualify. But I've been determined to do another lunch at this incredible place ever since the dust settled from my first visit in February, and if my 4...

Brindisa, Battersea
Ever since my first taste of their Iberico croquettas back in two thousand and mumble mumble , I've always had a soft spot for Brindisa. In fact, originally (before José Pizarro's restaurnats stole their crown), it was more than a soft spot - I was comple...

Tayyabs, Whitechapel
Two things are guaranteed to happen whenever I post about Tayyabs on social media. Firstly you get the usual fanboys, of which I count myself a very loyal member, who confess their undying love of seekh kebabs and lamb chops and chicken tikka, and can't wai...

The Guinea Grill, Mayfair
For much the same reason I wouldn't write a blisteringly-objective 1,000-word critique of a friend's dinner party, I've never been comfortable posting about restaurants where I'm friendly with the owners. And because most of the people I'm friendly with are...

Wing Stop, Covent Garden
I have moaned before about the lack of Buffalo wing options in London, in fact I've moaned quite a lot, so by rights I should have been pleased at the news that huge American chain Wing Stop had landed in Cambridge Circus. Americans invented Buffalo wings (...
