If, like SEEN, you’re feeling a tad weary at the thought of a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings, you might want to give the new Christmas menu at Nobu Berkeley Street a look; it promises a twist on the usual festive fare.

Start with a cocktail: in fact, make SEEN’s a Christmas Japanese Punch, which sounds like perfect fusion cuisine – Appleton Rum, Takara Plum Wine, Cognac, Ground Cinnamon, Blackberries, Cranberries, Blood Orange and Apple served with crushed ice.

Move on to festive Pre-Dinner Canapés. There are 2 menus for this part of your celebration, based on whether you want 4 or 6 canapés per guest. Again, glorious fusion food is the order of the day: Hot Miso Chips, Yellowtail Sashimi, Turkey Lollipops with Creamy Yuzu aji Amarillo, Crispy Rice with Spicy Tuna, Lobster Ceviche and Turkey Breast Kushiyaki with Wasabi Sauce all sound mouthwatering.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
