#WastEDLondon is a temporary pop up restaurant currently wowing diners on the roof of Selfridges in London – and it’s a pop-up like no other. WastED aims to start conversations about sustainability and waste, by serving up a menu made primarily from food by-products which are usually binned by the food industry (the capitalised ‘ED’ stands for ‘Education’).

It’s pretty much the most talked-about pop-up experience in London this year so far – and last week, I ate my way through the tasting menu. View Post

This weekend I popped in to the iconic, mid-century Lancaster London Hotel to try out their ‘Island Grill’ restaurant. The restaurant boasts a central London location – just 5 minutes walk from Paddington Station – and offers a modern, seasonal European menu. It’s also recently been awarded the Sustainable Restaurant Association’s top Three Star rating, thanks to Head Chef Adam Woolven’s vision to create an eco-friendly – yet luxurious – dining experience.
