  • 108 GARAGE HAILED AS NEXT BIG THING

    London’s notoriously hard to please critics have all been blown away by the newly opened 108 Garage on Notting Hill’s Golborne Road. Described as “the kind of chef who comes along only once or twice in a decade,” head chef Chris Denney’s dishes offer a seasonal mix of textures and tastes, influences and artistry. Softening its raw, industrial roots with an eclectic mix of furnishings and artefacts, 108 is still pretty far from your traditional restaurant. By day offering a bright, relaxed atmosphere, by night it transforms into a heady mix of tastes, music and people.

  • IN THE PINK WITH LANIQUE

    Made by steam-distilling thousands of rose petals to produce a pure rose essential oil more expensive per kilogram than gold, liqueur spirit Lanique first appeared in the 1800s, when it was cherished and imbibed by the titled elite across Prussia and the Austrian Empire.

  • STEVIE PARLE’S PALATINO OPENS ITS DOORS
