Arthur Hooper’s near Borough Market: Food for the Soul

SEEN was pretty gobsmacked to visit the Borough Market area last Thursday. It was rammed with people eating, drinking and flirting at top volume, drowning out the horrors of the knife attacks that so recently paralysed the area, proving yet again that Londoners step up to the plate where recovery and community support are required.

Arthur Hooper’s Weekend Brunch

SEEN has been a huge fan of Arthur Hooper’s since their May opening. It’s handily located close to Borough Market (where much of their ingredients are sourced), so it is with great delight that we hear weekend brunches are now on the menu too.

El Pastór: Mexico City Comes to London

One of the many delights of dining out in London is the architectural innovation that marks out each new venture. London-based architectural practice, Michaelis Boyd (whose recent commissions include the interiors for Battersea Power Station’s new residences), has just completed work on El Pastór, a vibrant new taqueria in the heart of Borough Market that pays homage to the vibrancy of Mexico City and the mighty ‘al pastor’ taco.

Lobos Soho: The New Carnivore’s Paradise

Full moon is always a good time for Lobos (wolves). Timing with this week’s super moon fever, the team behind Lobos Meat and Tapas at Borough Market has opened Lobos Soho at Frith Street; their second garito (Spanish neighbourhood joint), just next door to the iconic jazz club Ronnie Scott’s.

Flat Iron Square: London’s New Pleasure Garden

When Benjamin Disraeli said, ‘London is a roost for every bird’, he could have been talking about busy Bankside. Borough Market, Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe and the Menier Chocolate Factory are just some of the new, or newly-regenerated, landmarks that attract some fifty million visitors a year to the area. Now Flat Iron Square opens this weekend, with a wide array of restaurants, bars and music venues that will give the square a real buzz.
