Frenchie, Covent Garden

This was a long awaited opening for London as it comes from Gregory Marchand who has a huge list of successful ‘Frenchie’ establishments out in Paris. Greg himself has spent many years in London, notably working at Fifteen with Jamie Oliver as one of the earliest recruits. He’s gone on to be very successful since then and it was exciting to see what food offering we would be getting in Frenchie, Covent Garden. Continue reading “Frenchie, Covent Garden”


Burger & Lobster and Absurd Bird

High Line walks and massive steaks.

A trip to New York isn’t complete without a walk along the High Line. It’s a disused rail line which used to transport goods from 34th street down to the meatpacking district in the 1930s. The last train rain along the line in 1980 and it wasn’t until 1999 when planning began to turn it into a public space. Continue reading “High Line walks and massive steaks.”
