Something was missing in my life before I went to Monsieur Henri, and it was this: a cave à vin that feels a bit like a messy 2 a.m. bar. Why has no one else thought of this, Paris? You get all the good-wine-and-plate-of-fromage perks of a cave, but under…

I have always been very suspicious of savory pancakes. Especially tuna ones. Sweet pancakes are the stuff of childhood dreams, but throw an unexpected bit of fish in there and the whole thing becomes a briny, spongy disaster. One of my colleagues just saw…

As the name implies, The Beast is all about meat. It’s not the ideal place for a vegetarian to go for dinner, but it was the fourth of July and my American loved ones wanted to celebrate with Texan barbeque, so there we were. Everyone I was there with…

I love this place so much. It’s along the lines of a cosy little wine bar, but with huge windows that make it bright and seem more spacious than it is inside. The owner has been equally cheerful and friendly each time I’ve been. He’s happy to help you…

I don’t normally go to Italian restaurants on the basis that I can make pasta and pizza myself at home. This is not reflection on my cooking skills – just, if the main ingredients in a dish are carbs, cheese and tomatoes, it’s pretty much guaranteed that…
