Cox, Cookies and Cake

You might all know Patrick Cox the shoemaker, but only a few of you might know Patrick Cox the baker. That's right, British shoemaker Patrick Cox will tomorrow unveil his latest venture, a Soho bakery set to specialise in all manner of diabetes-inducing treats. Cox’s space will fit seamlessly with the shoe-guru’s sassy aesthetic (and indeed the surrounding area) with glossy black floors, neon signages and big bright disco balls. Very Soho indeed! Inspired by mornings baking with his mother, this is the best of what you get when fashion meets sugar! The ultimate destination for all fashionistas with a sweet tooth!
Cox Cookies & Cake, 13 Brewer Street.

Burgers at Lucky 7

Owned by Sir Terance Conran’s son Tom, this New York-esque diner in Westbourne Park is a big hit with the Notting Hill billies and the likes of Sienna Miller and Emma Watson. Sit in thin booths adorned with large mirrors, and enjoy the selection of milk-shakes (including an alcoholic-flavoured variety) and juicy Aberdeen Angus burgers.

Pierre Marcolini in London

One of the world's best chocolatier, and personal favorite, Belgian Pierre Marcolini has finally opened his first official store in London. At last we can enjoy all these extravagant truffles, pralines, macaroons, calin fondants and bonbons without having to travel to Belgium, France, Japan, NY... From the packaging to the tasting of the chocolate and the actual shop itself (it feels like a jewelery boutique), Pierre Marcolini is to chocolate what Haute Couture is to fashion. Whether you want to spoil yourself or impress someone, this is the ultimate chocolate destination. And it can't get any better than that. Pierre Marcolini is on 6 Lancer Square, Kensington W8 4EH, 020 7795 6611.

Fashion's Rising Star: J.W. Anderson

Born in Magherafelt, Northern Ireland, J. W. Anderson did a degree in menswear at the London College of Fashion. Graduating in 2001, he made his debut at London Fashion Week in September 2007. Combining a love of sinister phenomena with mystical characters in history and literature, Anderson's dramatic aesthetic has made him one of the most intriguing designers in current British fashion.

The Phene

While I was away on holiday earlier this month, some of my biggest followers and personal friends, went out on scouting for new places to write about in my blog. One of them, came from my fellow Greek friend Alex, who visited The Phene on Phene Str, SW3. All credits to him then.
What used to be legendary footballer's George Best favorite pub, has gone under a complete makeover and now has a deli in the back, towering vases of lilies on the bar and a women’s fashion label (Lily London) upstairs. Moreover there is a heated terrace outside which makes it great for the summer and smokers all year round. The food menu is diverse offering your typical gastropub food with a twist. From feeling salads, to sea bass, burghers, steaks, all day breakfast and delicious desserts it can cover all tastes. There is also a very good wine list, nice cocktails and beer! Esquire magazine recently described The Phene as the place where men can "watch sport, drink beer and keep your girlfriend happy". I couldn't agree more!
