This stunning restaurant in London’s Hyde Park, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning Zaha Hadid, will be filled up by Londoners joining their American and Canadian neighbours and friends to enjoy an evening of American-themed music, delicious food and gorgeous surroundings. The menu is tempting: the night will start with a glass of bubbly or a Thanksgiving cocktail while guests sit back and unwind to a live jazz band.

Chef Emmanuel Eger – for whom evening meals and family holidays have always been memorable affairs, as his family has always shared their love for food through cooking and dining together – has prepared for this occasion a sumptuous menu with American-inspired dishes. How could it be otherwise? Buttermilk-fried chicken and classic slow-roasted turkey with bacon sprouts, combined with much-loved classics gin-cured salmon and wild mushroom mille-feuille.

Dessert has been made with much love by Magazine’s pastry chef: Classic Pumpkin Pie will top off a convivial and familiar Thanksgiving dinner which reminds us, now more than ever, that there is much good in the world.

Book here.

To make your mouth water until Thanksgiving, here’s the menu:

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous. Like last year, London is awash with marvellous gins – and let’s remind ourselves, if you drink gin you are partaking in a resonant and historical pastime that is inextricably linked to London’s rich, vibrant and – dare we say it – dark past.

Kieren Hughes: Urban Dreamscape

SEEN was instantly captivated by the work of the Cheltenham-born artist Kieren Hughes recently. His unsettling images seem born of modern-day anxieties about urban living, as in Chicago Fever Dream or the privileges accrued by a rich elite, as in The Last Privilege of an Oil Man.
