 …a bit of jungle fever this week. With Zela at ME London, SUSHISAMBA Covent Garden and The Parrot (Idris Elba’s new bar at The Waldorf Hilton, opening soon) all new and heavy on the greenery, the city is feeling pretty tropical. In other news, Victoria’s F&B offering is still on the up after the launch of Nova, with Market Halls opening on 12th November, when 11 restaurants and 3 bars will take up residence in the old Pacha Victoria (RIP). Overseas we’ve got our eye on Soho House Mumbai (the group’s 10th opening this year – congrats!), and closer to home – if you haven’t got your tickets for Veuve Clicquot’s Widow Series yet, read all about it below. Lastly, as the SKATE at Somerset House launch party always marks the beginning of the festive season for us, it seems like it’s the last week before the festivities really begin. Enjoy!  
Crew Love
Two’s company…
…three’s a crowd, and we’re saying the more the merrier this week as some of our usual ones to watch (Bad Sports, Bistrotheque and Bastarda) branch out with new gangs.

Bunshop by Harriet Clare
Bring Back Bread
Gimme the dough
It’s official: carbs are back on the menu. We’ve noticed a resurgence of baked goods as of late, from Jolene’s nutritionally dense loaves (milled on site and seriously delicious when eaten as a cheese toastie), Poilâne have teamed up with Temper, The Dairy, Quo Vadis, Santo Remedio and Max’s Sandwich Shop to create bespoke tartines for their Bring Back Bread campaign, and we’re hotly anticipating the launch of bunshop (steamed buns, British style) from The Marksman’s Jon Rotherham and Tom Harris.
Albert Adrià
Ahead of his first London opening Cakes & Bubbles at Hotel Café Royal on 8th November (cheesecake + Champagne sounds like our kind of evening), we caught up with famed pastry chef Albert Adrià to discover his favourite spots in London and BCN.

Find out how to win free cake, Champagne, and a trip to Albert’s sought-after BCN restaurant Tickets here.
What's your all time favourite London restaurant?
I love having dim sum at A. Wong.

And what's your favourite in Barcelona?
I have too many I like in Barcelona – it would be unfair to choose just one!

A Very Very Very Dark Matter

Bridge Theatre’s Latest Show
A divisive, dark and dangerous new production
Halloween might have passed, but we think there’s always time for something a little unsettling. Following on from his National Theatre and Broadway hit, the dark comedy The Pillowman, Martin McDonagh premieres his latest production at Bridge Theatre. Directed by Matthew Dunster, A Very Very Very Dark Matter tells the story of another storyteller – Hans Christian Andersen – but with a more disturbing tone than you might expect. Get booking, it’s on until 6th January and tickets start from £15.
