Discovering The Cavendish

Marylebone has become more and more fashionable, and there are so many nice places to wine and dine. 35 New Cavendish for example is one. Since its launch in November 2014, The Cavendish in the heart of Marylebone, is one of the places that most stylish locals hang out.  This hip bar and all-day brasserie with a relaxed vibe and plush interiors, that combines the characteristics of an old world English pub serves a modern European menu. Being almost 2 years old, this little place managed to stay a well kept secret and only known among those who are “in the know”.   Newly appointed Italian head chef, Douglas Santi. With over ...

QP Ldn : the Amalfi Coast escape in Mayfair

Italian cuisine is always a good idea. But it is not easy to find a place with good food. Earlier in September I went to the launch of the QP Lounge, underneath the renown QP Ldn Restaurant (previously Quattro Passi -the sister restaurant to the two Michelin-starred Quattro Passi in Nerano, Italy). I was intrigued to give it a try.     Situated in the heart of Mayfair on the fashionable Dover Street next to the Victoria Beckham and Christian Louboutin boutiques,  the place boasts Italian food from Amalfi coast. The restaurant’s high-end contemporary design has been re-worked to incorporate modern artwork including tria...

All the Jazz at Park Chinois

As a foodie, it is strange that I rarely go for Dim Sum. Never really initiated it because to me, it is a family tradition that I grew up with. Sunday mornings, Chinese New Year, families gatherings, that’s the time I do dim sum. So when I was introduced to this new dim sum place in Mayfair, I was curious but honestly a little skeptical about how authentic it can possibly be- comparing to the ones I am used to back home in Hong Kong.     Park Chinois is the latest project from renowned restaurateur Alan Yau. That gives a little credential of the food, but there can also be a potential of over-hyped new restaurant scene. Just ...
