Boozy Brunch at New Street Grill

As a contributor to this fine blog that is The Boozy Bunch, I often get asked for recommendations for restaurants that do a well-priced, good quality brunch in London. In recent years this meal time has really taken off – it appeals to the trendy, hipster generation, the ladies who lunch club and those of us…

The Weekly Munch, 5-11 Mar 2016

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Daniel: So many birthdays, so little time. That’s probably what the Queen thinks too, celebrating twice a year with all those people. It also happens when people have milestone birthdays and in this case, it was the second celebration…

(Slightly) Boozy Brunch at The Folly

Normally when I go for a boozy brunch, I go the whole hog. Bottomless boozy brunch, a focussed attitude and an empty stomach – as a northerner it’s very important that I feel like I’m getting my money’s worth. But this time round I actively opted for a restaurant that didn’t offer a bottomless selection…

The Weekly Munch, 27 Feb-4 Mar 2016

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Daniel: Saturdays are the perfect theatre day – you can have an early lunch, catch a matinee, imbibe an afternoon cocktail or two (if the mood takes you) and then run straight into a pre-theatre dinner before catching a…

Rosa’s Thai Cafe, Soho

I don’t have any younger siblings, so I have never had to deal with having children around the house. Honestly, it sounds like a nightmare to me – older siblings you all deserve medals for putting up with us! But my flatmate is lucky enough to have a younger sister with whom she gets on…

The Weekly Munch, 13-19 Feb 2016

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Grant: I have to say I took a bit of a Valentine’s short cut this year. To be fair, I was busy most of the 13th due to a Christmas gift from my parents (an Italian cooking course that…

Press Visit: Low, Slow & Juke

There is such a huge buzz around food blogs, food magazines and food apps around London these days. I mean, there has been for a while, but it’s so refreshing to go to an event that is filled with people who are genuinely excited to talk about what’s hot amongst London’s food and drink scene….

The Weekly Munch, 6-12 Feb 2016

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Andrew: It’s been far too long since we had a proper Boozy Brunch and this time we brought all our friends in on the fun. Sixteen hungry and thirsty people descended upon Aubaine Broadgate to put their bottomless food &…

Five Guys, definitely not 5 stars

December is always full of Christmas celebrations – parties, presents, festive cheer and oh so much turkey. It’s the time of year when everyone wants to catch up with you all at once. Not that I’m complaining per se (I love catch up with friends), but after 4 weeks of poultry, pigs in blankets and…

The Weekly Munch, 30 Jan-5 Feb 2016

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Grant: I had purchased a voucher for Le Gavroche for my partner’s birthday last year, and he finally booked us in to eat there after tickets to see The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nightime. The meal…

The Weekly Munch, 23-29 Jan 2016

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Grant: Apparently Saturday was a quiet day for our Boozy Bunchers, so I’m here to tell you about my new favorite cooking ingredient: Espelette Pepper. I was first introduced to it on my trip to the Champagne region (even though…

Boozy Bunch Hitlist for 2016

Yee Gan: What places are you going to in the year ahead? Among the fine dining spots in London, Lee Westcott’s cuisine at Typing Room is definitely on my hit list. After so many recommendations from other Boozy Bunchers about Coba, I’ve got to get my Vietnamese on there. Fried chicken-wise, Chick ‘n’ Sours has my attention with the promise of…
