Granger & Co launch Chelsea’s Hottest New Brunch Haunt
Australian-based restaurant Granger & Co unveiled their new Chelsea two-storey restaurant complete with plant filled terrace and stylish private dining room opened their doors at lunchtime today, and with their Notting Hill branch having queues out the door regularly, it’s clear that the latest venture of the casual-yet-sophisticated restaurant will go down a storm.

Private dining is available for up to 18 guests and for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Monday through to Friday.
Prada Unveil SS18 Collection In Comic Book Fashion in Milan
Prada unveiled their playful comic-book inspired SS18 collection at Milan’s Men’s Fashion Week this weekend.
Designer Miuccia Prada takes what is currently the hottest looks for that season, and takes then to the next level, pushing boundaries in a way that she describes as ‘the opposite of virtual reality, handmade & simple’
The Final of the Cartier Queen’s Cup Took Place in Windsor
The Guards Polo Club in Windsor yesterday was overtaken by the stylish and the notable for the final of the Cartier Queen’s Cup with guests including Lily Cole, Ladies Violet and Alice Mannners and Marc Ronson, who provided the crowds with a DJ set. Cartier bell-boys were on hand to provide everyone with champagne, as well as fans to keep guests cool in the sweltering heat. Queen Elizabeth II was present and donned a signature floral dress with matching hat.
The enthralling match ended with RH Polo beating La Indiana in the final moments of the last chukka to win 10-9.
The Flower Garden Meets High Expectations in New York
With its sun-yellow booths, vivid blue bar stools and plush orange carpets, it’s easy to see why people feel like they’re taking a step back into the 70’s with this Lower-East Side restaurant and bar.
The lower level bar is where all the action happens, with expert mixologists creating the best cocktails in the area, such as their take on the ‘Old Fashioned’ made with a cardamom-infused bourbon.
The restaurant offers a limited but intriguing menu, featuring line-caught Cod; Rib-eye steaks and an Avocado & Peach Salad as well as having an extensive wine list.
