Hubbard & Bell is a restaurant in the new Hoxton Hotel (in Holborn!) and is part of the Soho House ever-expanding portfolio. They’ve also incorporated a Holborn Grind coffee shop and a new branch of one of our favourites; Chick Shop (aka posh Nandos – and everything comes with their immense butter lettuce and avocado salad) in the basement. It had come highly recommended, particularly for the oxtail with marmalade on toast and the s’mores – so naturally we booked immediately! (more…)
There’s a glut of burger joints in The Big Smoke. It’s not an exaggeration to say that, like Starbucks, there seems to be one on every street corner. There are some we love: the dirty burgers at Meatliquor with their squidgy, soft buns and deep fried pickles on the side, the gourmet grown-up treats at Burger & Lobster, and the epically monikered hamburgers at Patty & Bun (the Ari Gold is the winner). There are some we’re less fussed about however they will remain nameless.
So when we heard about Bobo Social we sighed with burger fatigue. Another one? But wait. We sighed too soon.
