Hawksmoor:

This isn't a new addition to my list of 'lovely places in London for dinner'- so I'm pretty surprised it's taken me so long to include it in a post, or recommendation! Having first visited Hawksmoor two years ago for Joe's 21st birthday, Joe and I have been back for several occasions since, and headed over to the Air Street branch last week for a Monday evening date night. With a menu focussed around their expertise in all things meat and fish (Joe opted for the steak, whilst I opted for the Bream), it was the perfect hideout on a rainy evening for something delicious (we also sampled the beetroot salad, which was wonderful). The setting boasts an air of 1920's romanticism, so curling up in one of their booths tucking in to their Crunchy bar and salted caramel rolo puddings, was the perfect way of wrapping up an evening- now to head back and tackle the rest of the menu!

5 Air St, London W1J 0AD

BOB by DOP:

It's no secret that I'm a huge fangirl of a certain Ms Dawn O'Porter. She's kick ass at many things (writing and presenting just being two of them)- but today I'm talking about her beautiful vintage pop up, BOB, that's back for a second round (*ding ding*) and around until Christmas too! If you hadn't heard already (and why not? I did an interview here and all) Dawn is an avid vintage collector and curator, and her pop up BOB is home to just some of her many finds, as well as her own collection- all of which is pretty bloody cool indeed. Whether you're after original Ossie Clark (and who isn't?), an illustrated skirt of dreams or even something for weekend dancing- you're sure to find it here- go go go!

Dawn is also doing a heap of amazing things to help continue to raise awareness and send aid for refugees in Calais, so if you can offer any help please head here too

BOB, 8 Newburgh Street, London


Caravan:

Caravan is one of those places everyone seems to have already visited- so I am certainly late to the party. Although I've heard endless praise for their Exmouth Market restaurant and their famous breakfasts and coffees, it was only when Joe and I were in Kings Cross recently (searching for dinner spots) that we finally decided to pay a long overdue visit. The charm about the menu is that there is undoubtedly something for every occasion, be it pizza, small sharing plates or something more hearty- and everything is wonderful. The only qualm is that this place gets busy quickly- so definitely book ahead if you can (and yes, you can book)!

  8. I love your London Loves series, so it's nice to see another installment! Hawksmoor looks right up my street, I love anything that can be linked backed to the 1920s and looks Gatsby-esque. The food looks delcious too and the same goes for Caravan. I must add them to my 'Place in London to Visit' list :) x
