Quaglino’s Mayfair, London


BYB Travels

I recently visited Quaglino’s in Mayfair during a work trip to the capital. I’m not particularly familiar with this area of London (I don’t think a fleeting visit via a Monopoly board counts) but I was excited to have dinner in the private dining room here.

Simple Italian dining @ Del Villaggio


restaurants, Review

Recently we took a trip to Del Villaggio on Broad Street. I’ve never been the biggest fan of Broad Street, and until my boyfriend and I became Unlimited members of Cineworld (at the Five Ways end of the street) a few years ago I’d not spent much time in that area of the city. In […]
