Christopher’s Covent Garden: Deliciously Decadent Pancakes

Never mind that the origins of Shrove Tuesday are rooted in ancient religious ritual, there can be few more delicious meals than pancakes. SEEN would like to alert you to a truly luxurious pancake experience in this fair city.


CHRISTOPHER’S COVENT GARDEN boast that they serve London’s most decadent pancakes. Diners will surely be the judge of that. They have two headline pancakes. One savoury, one sweet; both wildly decadent. Here’s a thought – design your own outrageous creations; bacon and ice cream anyone? SEEN’s game.


The savoury option is Grilled Lobster on Blue Corn Pancake with Avocado, Sweetcorn & Smoked Jalapeño Salsa (£22). Those with a sweet tooth may prefer a Nutella Pancake Stack that serves 4: Layers of Buttermilk Pancakes, Nutella, Crushed Hazelnuts, Honeycomb Ice Cream & Chocolate Sauce (£30), perfect for friends.

SEEN will be very happy to try their own Wild Creation, using Christopher’s famous ‘Build Your Own Pancakes’ menu. Customers tick the options on a bespoke notepad, and Christopher’s kitchen will bring their pancake fantasies to life. Toppings include Maple-cured Bacon, Nutella, Salted Caramel ice cream and even some virtuous options for the health-conscious with Mixed Berries, Matcha Green Tea, and Cinnamon & Coconut Yoghurt. (Pancakes are just £6 for the base and toppings are between £1 – £2).


Available on Shrove Tuesday, February 28th 2017, throughout the day, 11.30am to midnight.

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.
