 we have the first of the Halloween mentions coming in. Keep them coming – we feel like getting our fancy dress on this year (not ghoulish dress, mind). In other news, Kinilaw & Buko, a Filipino restaurant and bar which sounds quite interesting (it focuses on a variation of ceviche and artisan ice cream), is on soft launch from today until Sat with 50% off food (for dinner only). On the culture front, there’s news just in that The Lehman Trilogy will transfer to the Piccadilly Theatre in May 2019, with tickets going on sale 2nd November. Mark the date down, we can’t recommend this show and its cast enough. Over at by Chloe, they’ll be serving up CBD-infused treats for a limited time, so if you want to get in on the CBD wagon, it’s a good start! On the music front, we have it on good authority Dan Lancaster at Oslo tonight is going to be a great show – and if you’re going to ADE, have fun!

Perrier-Jouët at the Mandrake
Unique tasting dinners in an autumnal garden
Haven’t been to The Mandrake yet? Well now is the time. From this Thursday, luxury Champagne house Perrier-Jouët will be taking over the private terrace (usually closed to the public) at The Mandrake with a wild autumnal garden installation – complete with hanging passionfruit and jasmine, tropical plants and palm trees – for a series of different events including Champagne brunches, masterclasses and floristry workshops. We say book in for their £85 pairing dinners, hosted by a Perrier-Jouët Champagne ambassador, where a bespoke menu will be served alongside five glasses of the Maison’s finest cuvées, including Perrier-Jouët Blanc de Blancs NV, Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé NV and prestige cuvées Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque 2011 and Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé 2010.

Tania Bruguera
The latest installation in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall
In response to the global migration crisis, acclaimed Cuban artist/activist Tania Bruguera is staging a high profile intervention – one that’s taking place at Tate Modern’s iconic Turbine Hall. This isn’t an all-out protest though – Tania’s artistic responses are subtle and clever. She’s brought together 21 people who live or work in the same postcode as Tate Modern, who have written a manifesto that’ll appear when you sign on to their WiFi. Move around on the hall’s new heat-sensitive floor, and use your body heat (and the body heat of those around you) to reveal a hidden portrait of Syrian migrant Yousef, or extend ‘forced empathy’ by visiting a small room which literally induces tears using an organic chemical compound. Check it out next time you’re around Bankside. Entry is free until until 24 February 2019.

Kian Samyani
After joining JKS and working part time in the kitchen at Gymkhana (whilst he developed the concept for the group’s recent opening Brigadiers), Iranian chef Kian Samyani now heads things up at new Tehran-inspired Soho eatery Berenjak. We spoke to the SW London native about his favourite spots, and what to order when we drop by – doors open 23rd October!
Where should we go for Iranian food in London?
Patogh in Marylebone is a great hidden gem for anyone wanting great, unfussy Iranian food. It’s really well priced and offers a variety of authentic Persian dishes to feast on.

Which chef should we have our eye on right now?
Tom Spence from double Michelin-starred Kitchen Table is definitely one to watch.

What's your all-time favourite London restaurant?
My all-time favourite restaurant in London has to be Sabor. It’s a place you can go to any day of the week to get honest, traditional and authentic food in a casual environment. I love counter dining – getting the chance to watch the chefs at work is really interesting.

At the London EDITION
A night of dinner, dancing, and theatrical entertainment
If you’re after something a bit more refined this Halloween, a night out at The London EDITION for their Curse of the Red Kiss event could be just the thing. Taking place on All Hallows’ Eve itself, the evening will begin with a cocktail reception followed by a four course dinner at the award-winning Berners Tavern – think beetroot tartare and graveyard pumpkin pie. Expect live entertainment and surprises, followed by festivities in Berners Tavern, before heading to the party in the hotel’s BASEMENT club (all for £150). We have five pairs of tickets to the party (usually £25), which kicks off at 9pm, to give away – each including a drink. Just enter a few details below – good luck!

It’s getting colder and we’ve got a craving for some warming, spicy hot pot, so it feels like the right time to let you in on our favourite spots. Of course, Chinatown is the place to head, but we’ve got some options outside of W1 too.

The Weekend
The weather’s making us feel a little like we want to stay curled up under a blanket this weekend, but when Fabric’s 19th birthday is happening, you know you have to get out there and dance. On Friday, head over to Somerset House for the late-night opening of Goldsmiths alumna Hannah Perry’s new exhibition GUSH, and on Sunday get cosy with an Italian game feast at Trullo. They’ll be serving up pappardelle with grouse ragu, roast partridge with lentils, and upside down pear cake – and we’re sold. There are still tables left, so email now to book. Happy weekend!
