Top 5: Unmissable Events in London This WeekBy Alicia Grimshaw
Life’s too short to stay in; there’s tons of fantastic events in London this week, if you only know where to look. Here’s 5 events in the capital you can’t miss this week:
What: Grain Store and Bruno Loubet have partnered with Shaun Hill of the Michelin starred Walnut Tree Inn near Abergavenny for a one-off ‘Spring Feast’ happening tonight! If you’re in need of a delicious plan this evening, head down to Granary Square for a menu that like no other.
Why: The special four course menu pays homage to their mutual love for the highest quality produce. Kicking off proceedings is the vegetable patch, cooked by Bruno – a celebration of Bruno’s favourite ingredients; veggies. The next two courses will be cooked by Sean – sauteed monk fish tail and new season lamb fricasee with asparagus, leeks and potato. Bruno will finish off the dinner with his tonka bean tart and champagne sorbet. Tickets here
Where: Granary Square, King’s Cross, 1-3 Stable St, London N1C 4AB
What: If you’ve become tired of the same bars, menu and people – head down to Callooh Callay‘s JubJub Bar from Wednesday (20th) to sip on new cocktails created by Remy Savage and his team from Parisian bar, Little Red Door. The pop-up is only running until Sunday – get down there as soon as.
Why: The menu explores the evocative nature of flavours and whether we all share similar feelings when exposed to different sensory stimuli. Composed of 11 works of art created by international painters, sculptors and creatives, the menu offers visual representations of the emotional imagery evoked by each of the 11 distinctive cocktails. If that’s too much for you to handle, neck an array of heady cocktails.

What: Two of Fitzrovia’s favourite independent businesses – The Remedy wine bar and Big Fernand “Hamburgé” restaurant will team up for a unique Natural wine and Hamburgé Salon held on Thursday 21st April, 6pm – 11pm. Beef and Bordeaux go hand in hand.
Why: Only running for one night, The Remedy are upping sticks from their home on Cleveland Street and heading on over to Big Fernand’s Percy Street restaurant. There they’ll set up a mini wine bar and pour a unique selection of natural and biodynamic wines by the glass to pair with Big Fernand’s selection of Gallic-themed burgers. The team have committed to bringing some of their most interesting white, red and even orange wines to the Salon, all of which will be available for just £5 a glass. Bargain.
