FRESH AND DELICIOUS LOBSTER AT LOBSTER KITCHEN, LONDON
Lobster Kitchen is situated right in the heart of London, in Covent Garden. Walking down Great Russell Street it soon became obvious by the long queue of excited diners waiting outside, exactly where the restaurant was. I have never seen a queue for a restaurant, especially in chilly November, but that just gives you a hint at how good the food actually is. The décor of this cute little restaurant looks like a New York eaterie, it has a relaxed feel, high tables, with cool fish barrels hanging from the ceiling and anchors. The atmosphere is lively and there was not a single seat spare. Cool music adds to the ambience and along one side is an innovative ipad bar, so you can surf and dine at the same time.
If you love excellent Lobster, delicious food, relaxed surroundings and a lively atmosphere then head down to Lobster Kitchen in Covent Garden. The restaurant is perfect for catching up with friends over tasty food and a great way to start an evening out in London!

VIVO BRAVO, BRAVISSIMO!
Vivo is a restaurant, bar and bakery which is fully immersed in Italian culture, sprit and love of food! The restaurant itself encompasses a large deli counter, seating space of benches and smaller private tables and upstairs roof terrace – which is PRIME summer space on the stretch of Upper Street I can imagine. The deli counter displays all of the food on offer under glass so you can see what you are choosing. The counter is arranged from the heavier end of Italian cuisine, such as meatballs, parmigiana and lasagne, then charcuterie and cheese, a VAST array of salads and then patisserie, pizza by the wood oven, then breads and pastries near the door for those express visitors in and out for their daily coffee and sweet start.
The all day dining concept is made up of a delicious Italian menu. With everything from freshly baked ciabatta and focaccia, Italian savoury pies, authentic pizzas, salads and other delicious treats and sweets straight from Italy.

TEMPTED BY TAPAS AT MAS Q MENOS
Situated in the heart of Soho at 68-70 Wardour Street, it’s in a prime location. Stepping inside it certainly had a bar-like demeanour with a large counter expanding along one side with Mas Q Menos in large illuminated letters, and with round tables and soft chairs opposite. The décor is certainly both chic and comfortable with a mixture of black walls and light wood fittings. Adorning part of the walls are shelves of wines and hanging pieces of ham. It’s a brilliant display of contemporary and conventional. But alas, despite these aesthetics, the atmosphere was lacking as there was only a handful of customers. However, this was the only negative element of what was a spectacular evening of tastebud stimulation.
This is a restaurant I will definitely go back to and recommend without reservation. The whole experience was equal to a fine dinning restaurant! Well done Mas Q Menos and good luck with the future you are a sparkling new gem amongst a collection of tarnished chains.

Anise is the glamorous square mile cocktail bar accompaniment to the well established Cinnamon Kitchen restaurant nestled in the enclave of Devonshire Square, underneath a glorious glass roof that wouldn’t look out of place nurturing the botanical, rather than in this case city bloomers, in Kew gardens.
