The Wild
Garden

If you’ve eaten with us in the last months, you may have noticed that your plate has taken a bit of a walk on the wild side; herbs, salads, vegetables, flowers that definitely don’t look like they’ve come off a supermarket shelf. As someone quipped over their salad one day, “it feels a bit like eating a garden”… Twice a week we take delivery of vegetables and herbs from Roberto ()

Copenhagen

Aase specifically asked to stay here after her grand daughter recommended the hotel to her. She said her favourite thing about it was all the fresh flowers and the young people enjoying the cosy lounge. During her time in Berlin, she also went to visit the Hotel Adlon because her ()

Mean Love

If you happen to bump into this softly-spoken, sweet-smelling gentleman in the lobby… not the one on the left obviously ;)… congratulations are in order! Yesterday he just released his new album Mean Love. And we’ve totally fallen love with it! It’s a record full of energy and rhythm which make you wanna go out into the sunshine and dance; electro-pop infused through with the influences of Africa, Sudan, Ethiopia and ()
