I discovered Eataly a few years ago when a friend recommended we meet for dinner at the Flatiron location. I was left speechless by the variety and 'Italian-ness' of the place (if that was a word!). You will be in an Italian heaven the second you enter the store. The first thought that came to [...]
My first experience of Joe was on New Year's day 2015 on the Upper West Side at 7 am. It still is one of the best barista conversations I have had till date considering I was really jet lagged, hung over from the night before and just plain new to the neighborhood. When I revisited [...]

I spent 3 years at Holborn and Fitzrovia whilst I studied at LSE and Brunswick was a key part of the evenings we spent hanging out with friends who lived near there. It is great to see that hotels have considered Holborn and Russell [...]
