I’m a big fan of French food, and I certainly don’t eat it enough. I’m a sucker for sticking to Italian or some kind of Asian food, simply because I feel like you can’t go wrong with it. But when the delightful new Bon Vivant opened its doors over near Russell Square I had to give it a go.
For those of you that follow me on Instagram, you will know I’m a little bit obsessed with sushi. It’s the one type of food that I don’t think I ever could or would get board of. So when I discovered this little place called sushi café in Battersea, I knew I would quickly become a regular, and I’ve been singing its praises ever since.
Until I started my new job, my old office was based on Gloucester road. A lovely little area just round the corner from South Kensington. It has lots of lovely hotels, some BEAUTIFUL houses but not a tone of great places to eat. Burger King and KFC are the first things that greet you as you come out of the tube for goodness sake! So when I saw that they were opening a new Comptoir Libanais on the same road as said Burger King, I was ecstatic! And even more so when they asked me to come down for dinner and try it out.
For those of you that don’t know, I recently started an incredible new job. One of the amazing perks of this new job is getting invited to a tone of new restaurant or bar openings to sample and then create emails or content for. One of the ones I recently got invited to was Ceru in South Kensington.
You may have hear me mention before that I love finding secret little gem’s when it comes to restaurants. Well this is certainly another one of those. Nestled in the heart of Piccadilly, I always assume most of the restaurants around there are simply tourist hot spots and usually chains. But Cicchetti is far from either of those…..OK technically it is sort of a chain as they have another one over in Covent Garden, one in Manchester and a couple over seas, but it really doesn’t feel like one!
