Restaurant Review: Commerce Inn in New York’s West Village

An entrepreneur launching an Eritrean, Tibetan, or Surinamese restaurant in New York can, by locating in the right neighborhood, have a built-in following of people who grew up with the food and who will likely give it at least a whirl. Not so for anyone setting up a Shaker-inspired restaurant, like Jody Williams and Rita […]

Hawksmoor Wood Wharf, London E14: “Reassuring Special” – restaurant review | Food

If, last year I had to guess where the restaurant scene would thrive in 2022, Canary Wharf would have seemed the most unlikely. Sure, this was once considered London’s highest-paying postcode, but none of that benefited the restaurant business when its bank workers worked in Berkshire pajamas. And, pandemic aside, Canary Wharf has never been […]

Woodruff is a restaurant everyone in Ireland should know

It’s hard to follow. I had heard that Woodruff at Stepaside was good and that chef Simon Williams and manager Colm Maguire had ambitions, but I had obviously not paid enough attention to that. Woodruff isn’t just “good” – it’s a restaurant everyone in Ireland should know. In case you are unfamiliar, Stepaside is a […]

Rickys Noosa Restaurant Review: Restaurant Review

Coastal but not coastal. The tagline perfectly sums up this Noosa waterfront destination. Can you think of another place that, fifteen years after making its first crab spaghettini, would still have enough punch to boldly take over the neighboring rental and double in size? I’ll wait. Of course, this feat was a little easier for […]

Restaurant Review: The Watervale Hotel

Typically, a chef’s day starts mid-morning: there are deliveries to accept, menus to write and mise en place to prepare. But for Nicola Palmer, the life of a chef is a little different.

Indigenous restaurant review: Menu challenges everything Veganuary stands for

SSo far, 2022 hasn’t been the breath of fresh air we needed. Among the big news lines last week was the story of a Turkish farmer who decided to donate cow VR headsets to make them feel like they’re outside in sunny pastures, instead of inside barns. This apparently caused them to produce more milk. […]

Culinary treats at Drovers Inn in Angus

With the celebrations now a distant memory and the tree decorations tucked away in the shed, I kept two rose-shaped garlands of lights inside the house, their faint amber glow offering a touch of festive comfort to those days of darkness and squall. I hate January. I mean, what’s there to love? The stores are […]

Aberdeen’s new Japanese joint Masaki is a hit

It is said that moving is one of the most stressful times of your life. I can definitely tell you after doing it recently, it most certainly is. A change like moving house is extremely exciting, but with that excitement comes the nerve-wracking, emotional ball of anxiety that has settled in the pit of my […]
