 …if KFC (seriously) botched their promo at ULTRA the other week, YSL nailed theirs at Coachella last weekend with their pop-up petrol station. We liked it, but maybe we just wish we were in the desert. But enough complaining, it’s almost the four day weekend! Hope you’re as excited for a break as we are. If you’re away, enjoy, and if you’ve decided to stay here, there’s lots on – make the most of it! HAPPY EASTER!

It’s a Secret
The best things these days are happening out of sight
From La Esquina in NY and Coyo Taco in Miami to Milroy’s and Kitchen Table in London, the hidden restaurant/bar is not a new concept, but there are a host of new venues bringing it to the forefront again, and we’re fans.

The chef-patron of Kitchen Table, which won its second Michelin star last year, and the soon-to-reopen Bubbledogs, which will be re-emerging as a Champagne bar, tells us about his favourite wining/dining spots in London and beyond.
What’s your favourite casual London restaurant?
I’m a regular at Black Axe Mangal, A Wong and Xi’an Impression, who all deliver on flavour and are just plain delicious.

What’s your favourite international restaurant?
The best meal I’ve ever had was at Alinea in Chicago, about 8 years ago. We had 34 courses and it was the first time I’d experienced really experimental cooking– it was really eye-opening.

Seth Troxler + Lost Souls of Saturn (Live)
Music ON
Three festivals and two gigs for your radar
If you don’t have Easter plans, and missed the Madrid version, head over to DGTL Amsterdam (19-21). Otherwise, we have our eye on Sónar Reykjavik (25-27) and for some forward planning, really hope to make it to Movement (Detroit) this year (May 25-27). On the electro nuevo front, Seth Troxler debuts his Lost Souls of Saturn multi-disciplinary live project at VU this Thursday, and Carl Craig will be at the Royal Albert Hall with the Chineke! Orchestra, Sunday April 28.

Other People’s Money
By Jerry Sterner, 17 April - 11 May
The Wire and Cable Company of New England is a sleepy, family-run business – that is until Larry the Liquidator threatens to bring a little corporate pillage to the village. With a jam-today approach to both doughnuts and investments, Larry is accustomed to grabbing life by the assets. But CEO Jorgy has a different approach. Will his small town ideas stack up against booming Wall Street? In this darkly funny ’80s play, it all comes down to whether ‘values’ have their price.

Call the Southwark Playhouse on 020 7407 0234 and secure a 2 for 1 offer for previews (advance bookings only quote OPM241). *Valid on £14 seats only and excludes concessions. “Other People’s Money” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.

St. Leonards
Weekend Dining
This week’s roundup
First up, we’re seeing the pendulum swing back to roasts! If you lean that way, Cora Pearl (the second restaurant by the much-loved Kitty Fischer team) serves Sunday roasts weekly from 12-3:30. Over in Mayfair, there’s an Italian take on roasts at Bocconcino from 12-3 on Sundays, and in Chelsea, Tom’s Kitchen has a ‘Sunday Sharers’ roast, which is designed for 2-3 to share (at £45). As for brunch, Jackson Boxer and Andrew Clarke’s acclaimed St. Leonards launched a new menu last week (Saturdays, 12-4) with items like bavette and eggs with peppers and salsa, and if you just can’t make it out of bed, try a Bloody Mary from Liquorette’s new cocktail-to-you service.

Casa Fofó
Restaurant Heads Up
All about east
Again, we’re back east. Three restaurants for your radar; reviews coming soon. Opened last week, Casa Fofó is the new Hackney local spot (with natural and low intervention wines, natch) from ex-Pidgen chef, Adolfo De Cecco; we’re hearing great things about Peg, and we’re intrigued to get into the Japanese/Italian Angelina Bar and Restaurant in Dalston Lane.

Like You Hate Me
This is not a play about love
