Le Gavroche

le gavroche
If we’re talking famous restaurants in the UK then the name of this place is generally one of the first to come up. Le Gavroche first opened its doors on Lower Sloane Street in 1967 with brothers Albert and Michel Roux. The restaurant then went on to become the first...
Purnells, Michelin star restaurant Birmingham
Birmingham is home to a handful of Michelin Starred restaurants. Purnells was one of the very first to achieve a star back in 2009 and has continued to hold it ever since. We headed along for lunch, our first Michelin lunch in The Midlands.   Glynn Purnell is known for his...

The Square, London

The Square, London
Restaurants over 20 years old holding two Michelin stars are a rare sight these days around London so today we thought we'd go and visit one. Phil Howard has been at The Square over half his life after stints with the legendary Marco Pierre White at Harveys and Albert...

Kitchen W8

Kitchen W8, London
Where in London can you get a three course lunch for £28 with a Michelin Star? The answer is this place, Kitchen W8. I’m a big fan of Phil Howard (previously of The Square, now Elystan Street) who part-owns Kitchen W8. Looking through the menu, you can see glimpses...

Tim Ho Wan

Tim Ho Wan Michel Star IFC Mall Hong Kong
