  • Typing Room and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay win big at AA's 2017 Awards


    The annual AA 2017 Hospitality Awards took place last night and several folk in London had reason to be very pleased with themselves indeed.

    The ceremony named a number of new five and four rosette restaurants around the country. London didn't get any new 5-rosette spots, but two restaurants, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay and East London's The Typing Room were awarded four meaning their cooking “demands national recognition”.

    The evening celebrated the best of

  • World's 50 Best Restaurants awards will take place in Bilbao


    Hot Dinners was down in Aldwych this morning for the announcement of the location of 2018's World's 50 Best Restaurants. So the party location was Eneko at One Aldwych, chefs in attendance included Eneko Atxa from Azurmendi; it didn't take a genius to work out that the next location would be Bilbao.

    Yes, it's nearly that time again. The new World's 50 Best list is revealed next week - and that means we get a sneak peak today with the reveal of 51-100. 

    What does it mean for London on the list... well there's very little change. Lyles goes up (from 65 to 54), Hedone down (from 60 to 98) and St John doesn't move at all. So it's the very definition of "no surprises". Hopefully, there'll be more to see in the top 50 when the full list is revealed
