Maze // Gordan Ramsey


Maze has an exciting menu encompassing the traditional French cuisine with an Asian influence in tasting sized dishes, allowing the diners to sample an array of flavours and textures. We recently went for a spot of lunch at Gordan Ramsey’s Maze in Grosvenor Square and went for their exciting lunch bites menu; four courses for £25. Choosing from a range of savoury and sweet dishes I opted for the steamed sea bream to start with brussel sprouts, enoki mushrooms, ginger and dashi which gave a very fragrant light dish followed by the pork dumplings in an aromatic mushroom broth which really flared the Asian fusion influence. I finished my savoury dishes with the braised beef feather blade accompanied with a pomme puree which was divine, melt in the mouth beef with a rich pomme puree with an exciting twist from the togarashi spice gave a traditional dish an exciting contemporary touch. My sweet followed; a gorgeous parfait with a very festive clove ice cream got me very excited for the afternoon of Christmas shopping. This four course menu for £25 is very much worth it, with generous sized tasting dishes and an extensive cocktail and wine list it’s ideal for a lunch out with girls or treating your partner to a little fine dining.

O-food is a new fish and vegetarian food concept, serving fast food – that is healthy, fast and delicious.

To prove that the world is ready for their idea, they are hosting a pop up restaurant in Shoreditch from the first of August for two weeks at 54 Rivington Street, this is a great little space in the middle of Shoreditch, with a great buzz and atmosphere so I am sure that O-food is going to fit in perfectly.

Lunchtime Grazer at the Alba



The Alba restaurant is situated on the Wharf, housed in a completely refurbished lifeboat house on the harbour front of St Ives. The restaurant boasts outstanding panoramic views of St Ives bay coastline and beyond. Alba is a smart seafood restaurant, well established now; going into its tenth year, and renowned for its contemporary menu
specialising in local produce, their dishes are produced from line caught fish and seasonal vegetables.
On their lunch menu for this season they have a beautiful selection of small grazing plates of modern tapas with a vast selection of meat, fish and vegetarian options. Recommended three savoury plates per person, we ordered a mix of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes, ranging from the Morrocan spiced cauliflower beignets with a cucumber and mint yoghurt and micro coriander, Cornish Deli Farm Charcuterie board – which included some beautiful meats; black olive salami, fennel salami, Honey Coppa served with a celeriac remoulade, olives, cornichons and whole grain mustard that worked so well together. Followed also by their succulent pork and fennel meatballs and we couldn’t miss out on the cornish fish, trying their steamed cornish mussels and the cornish crab and cockle cakes served with a spiced tomato chutney that complemented the dish very well.
Recommended by The Good Food Guide, Michelin Guide and Britain’s Finest, the Alba restaurant is undoubtedly a restaurant worth visiting in Cornwall with a truly delectable contemporary menu and exceptional service.
