 This week we’ve got Halloween on the mind. After walking into the Soho House Greek Street party unaware (and sans costume) last Friday night, it’s official: people are really going for it this year, so get those costumes out. In other news, after reading Tim Hayward’s Coal Office recap, we’re reminded of just how subjective reviews are. We loved the food, and think Assaf Granit (The Palomar) did himself proud. We say go and make your own mind up this weekend, and whilst you’re there, check out the rest of the Coal Drops Yard launch events too. Last Friday we also tried out Zela, the Ibiza restaurant transfer that’s recently arrived at ME London. On paper, we weren’t sure: jungle interiors, ‘live’ DJs, ‘Meppon’ cuisine, West End crowd – but we were pleasantly surprised. The food (a fusion of Med produce and Japanese techniques) was amazing, and it really was fun inside. That’ll teach us to get out there and try things before we judge. Happy Halloween!

Bar Spy
When it comes to drinking venues, it looks like we’re going to be spoilt for choice this autumn. There’s Sager + Wilde’s new spot Fare for nitro vodka espressos, Breddos Tacos’ Cocteleria for margs and mezcal, and Diogenes the Dog for wine when we’re south of the river. Drink up!

Anna Hansen
After training under Fergus Henderson and heading things up at The Providores, Anna Hansen is now celebrating 10 years of her restaurant The Modern Pantry – so we think it’s about time we got to know her a little better.
