A cut above – London Steakhouse Co. The Kings Road.

It’s nice to be invited places, but it was especially nice to be invited for a fine dining experience at Marco Pierre White’s London Steakhouse Co, situated on the King’s Road. Well that’s what myself and the Ultimate Rugby Fan were thinking as we met one Wednesday night outside of Sloane Square station. For us it was the second time that we were going to be dining on steak in a few days (check entries passim for my thoughts on Wandsworth’s Meat Up Grill,) and though I like steak, it can take … [Read more...]

La Petite Bretagne – the freshest, family-friendly creperie in the neighbourhood. Allez-y!

As we approached La Petite Bretagne on foot from the Abbeville Road direction, tummies were grumbling after a busy Saturday morning of activities/homework/housework/slight hangover.  You know the feeling.  Nerves of both old and young were fraying around the edges thanks to blood sugar levels dipping perilously low.  Thankfully that mood was short-lived. As we walked in, we felt instantly far from the madding crowds and quickly took in our light, bright and airy surroundings of a modern take on … [Read more...]

A mixed Monday at the Meat Up Grill

Whereas Thursday is the new Friday for many bars and restaurants Monday is probably the new Sunday. Sunday according to a statistic that I’m sure I remember reading rather than just making up, is now the third most popular day of the week for going out. Now I assume that includes a lot of lunches, but it’s still a far cry from the days of my youth when the most exciting thing to do on the sabbath would be to look out of the window to see if it’d started raining. With Sunday now a Funday, … [Read more...]

Table for one – going solo at the Thai Grocer

  As anyone who’s had to do it more than once knows, dining alone can be a miserable experience. I often have to travel on my own both for business & pleasure, but one of the things I dread is looking for somewhere to eat. Oh once you’re inside its fine, there’s your book leaning up against the wine glass whilst you quite happily consume and imbibe until the words run together in front of your eyes. It’s getting the table that presents the challenge. There you are queueing behind … [Read more...]

A fine bromance 1 – A lads night at Red Dog South.

  So we all know that NappyValley.net is a parenting site and that families are our first love, so having a short series of reviews on venues for a boys’ night out might seem counterintuitive. It is those very families though that have cut down on our time for socializing, meaning we no longer have the patience to suffer through another mediocre night out when who knows when we’ll get another opportunity. Family commitments have added scarcity value to our times of male bonding, and we … [Read more...]

Ben’s Brazilian Brunch – Ben’s canteen Earslfield.

Garratt lane offers a surprisingly wide choice of destinations these days for the bruncher to be. From Carluccio’s to Mel’s via the Double Bubble and Belle Amis there is something for everyone and Wandsworth’s most famous street is becoming something of a brunch Mecca. Ben’s Canteen, Earlsfield, has been open a couple of years now. It’s a very pleasant spot located about 200 yards from the station and across the road from the aforementioned Mel’s.
