5 Seasonal Ideas for Easter Weekend
✨ SABINE WILSON
As a purveyor of luxury lifestyle & at the forefront of hospitality relevance in London, Sabine Wilson gives us her Easter weekend and April highlights in London: What’s new, what’s interesting & what you should definitely do.
For something romantic, check out this new opening from Carlo Scotto, ex-Babbo chef. The menu consists of modern European cuisine, all very seasonal and fresh. They're serving up everything from a 10-course tasting menu to a reasonably priced breakfast. It's a new addition to an already vibrant foodie area, but well worth a punt. If you want to make a night of it, go to Chiltern Firehouse before. Now it’s warming up, the heated terrace at Chiltern is a perfect place for a drink pre or post dinner. If you can snag the table by the log fire (usually reserved for residents only) that's the place to be.
For something more out there (and by "out there" I mean "up there"), book a ticket to Theatre in the Clouds. Quite literally in the clouds & way chicer than you can imagine. The unbelievably talented Revels in Hand theatre troupe will blow your socks off with their uber-intimate hour-long plays set in the most palatial suite on the 39th floor of the Shangri-La Hotel at the Shard. The champagne, sweeping views & stunning entertainment will knock your socks off & make for the most romantic of evenings. Truly not to be missed, and some nights are sold out already, so book tickets here.
🐰 3 - A.O.K, Marylebone
Another Marylebone tip, and this is an all day sensation from the owners of the Art’s club. It is the perfect mixture of al fresco chic come day & slick late night eatery with a particularly roomy and very fabulous bar come night. Equally great for big family groups as for couples and the highlight is it's gluten, refined sugar and dairy-free so comes with zero complaints from fussy family members & friends alike. Plus you have Jacob at the helm who sashayed over from the Firehouse up the road. This is proving to be Marylebone’s new people-watching spot of the moment and lets not forget their insane breakfast menu and secret downstairs bakery for on the go.
Sounds A.O.K to us.
James Blunt and Sofia Wellesley took over this little mews gem in Fulham recently and it is impeccably decorated with exceptional food. Also, it's dog-friendly and their sweet potato fries are great. Tatler did an excellent piece when the Blunt family first took over. Read here.
🐰 5 - Easter Egg Hunts, Fortnum & Mason and Hampton Court Palace
For a truly British & classic Easter weekend special, use Fortnum & Mason to create the most luxurious easter egg hunt ever. Dine at the Wolesley to load up on Negroni’s then waltz the the kids across the road to Fortnum’s and ply them with chocolate courtesy of the place that always does it best. And if you're looking to get out of the city & fancy something a little different with the children, Hampton Court Palace is hosting an Easter Egg hunt from April 6th - 22nd . With the Lindt Bunny being the most classic for the kids (and adults alike at Easter) & the weather looking promising its the perfect backdrop. Booking tickets is a must.
