Heverlee at Tontine’s Inspired Glasgow Pop-Up

August 2, 2015

A tourist in my own city as I’ve spent the majority of my life in London, it’s been surprising to see the transformation of inner Glasgow. Or, the Merchant City. Once it was occasional bars in a den of old man’s pubs, now it’s a thriving must visit area, buzzy, arty and a main socialising […]

Gusto Glasgow opens as Spring arrives in the City.

April 16, 2015

Now, I’m no Grace Dent. (@gracedent) The sassy woman is a legend in her own lunchtime. Quite literally. I wholly admit to being no huge full on foodie, preferring my staple diet of liquid lunches and quick canapés (after close inspection sans dairy). However, I do know a good restaurant not only from the menu […]

‘Les 3 Étages By Dom Pérignon–Opening May 2015

April 15, 2015

Never let it be said that I’m above self parody. It’s a known fact that an event or launch invitation only has to boast a champagne house logo and I’m in there like swimwear. My reputation exceeds me with wry comments from fellow blogger friends like The Chic Geek (@thechickgeekcouk) noting that PRs see if […]

Chutzpah’s Visit to One Aldwych – Part 2

August 21, 2013

Who wouldn’t be over the moon to be invited to cocktails and dinner on a Friday night at the spectacular One Aldwych? My friend and I posed for pics in the coloured lifts (I know it sounds naferoo but the lighting is just so brilliant) before heading to our reserved table in the grand One […]

Lucky 7 Canteen and Flat 01, Glasgow

August 2, 2013

Entering Glasgow’s Lucky Seven Canteen on a sunny July evening was like stepping back in time to my former University early evenings of relaxed times and Summer nights with groups of friends. Bath Street was always a hub of bars and activity even back then whether you holed up in a basement bar or ventured […]

The Grosvenor Cafe, Glasgow

August 1, 2013

I received the call when I was already on my way up to Glasgow’s leafy West End. Those nice people at G1 Group timed it just right. I greeted my friend at her apartment with, “OK, I’ve been called to review The Grosvenor Cafe in Ashton Lane. Let’s go.” Twenty minutes later we were driving […]

Floridita’s Resurgence – The Alex Mendham Orchestra album launch

April 4, 2013

Floridita in London’s Wardour Street is one of those restaurants that’s on your radar as you first went there years ago when it first opened but have never really been back. Such is the fickleness of Londoners and their infatuation with the latest themed restaurant or cocktail bar. Which is a shame. As it’s not […]

London’s Asia de Cuba launches Ceviche Summer Pop-Up Bar

July 5, 2012

Asia de Cuba is still venerated as one of the coolest (and justifiably expensive) restaurants on the London scene at St Martin’s Lane hotel. With its stellar reputation for sharing style themed Asian & Cuban fused food, light, succulent and incredibly moreish with sharp piquancy, when the restaurant announced a month long pop-up ceviche bar […]

Glasgow’s Central Restaurants – The old and the new

July 27, 2011

As the song goes, “I belong to Glasgow…” and like any Glaswegian I am dutifully proud of the city, its history, its art and culture, its people, its friendliness and its nightlife. However, as a city, it has not been noted for its high class Michelin star restaurants which seem more prevalent in our frenemy […]
