Foxlow: Nice n sweet

Foxlow, Clerkenwell
Foxlow, the steak-themed restaurant, comes from a rich pedigree. It is the latest venture from the guys behind Hawksmoor, but thankfully, this venture is extremely affordable. Termed as the “new neighbourhood restaurant”, Foxlow can be spotted in all its glory on St. John Street in Clerkenwell.

Serving up slow-smoked and charcoal grilled dishes, Foxlow offers a menu that is imaginative and skilfully executed. One can enjoy specials like Eight-hour Bacon rib with maple and chilli, Ten hour beef shortrib with kimchi or Skin on fries with chicken salt.
The expansive setting @Foxlow
Those with a sweet tooth can try various options, including Caramel popcorn, Bourbon caramel and Apple crumble, all between £3-6. Just like Hawksmoore, Foxlow too has an impressive drinks menu, offering twists on classic cocktails and wines from independent producers.  
The two floor Foxlow is a warm and friendly eatery, with a relaxed atmosphere. Farringdon Tube Station is a 5-minute walk away.

RIP Joan Rivers

Joan Rivers
Came home to a shocking news a few days back. Joan Rivers died, during a surgery on her vocal cords. How bizarre and shocking is that? I mean, I love watching Fashion Police, but I loved it because of her. Without Joan, fashion policing wouldn't have any of the punch, the humour, the playfulness or the critique that she brought with her unique personality. No matter what or how she decoded a celebrity attire, no matter how she poked fun at a stars dressing sense or their look, her comments were said in a way that no one could have ever hated her.

Her critiquing too had an underlining sense of humour and that made her a beloved being among the stars, designers and fashion editors alike. Owing to her frank and outspoken nature, Joan was almost always in the news. She faced criticism and stirred controversies because of her outspoken commentaries on celebrities and politics, but her gregarious nature and her ability to poke fun at herself sort of diluted the impact of her statements, in a sense that nobody could have taken her critiquing to the heart.

I might be wrong. Many might not agree to what I'm saying here, and I too am not speaking from experience. I was never at the 'other' end of her jokes, so I would never know. But I have watched Joan for all these years, and I have always loved her enthusiasm, her comic style and her grasp on fashion. For me, she was more alive and kicking that any of her co-hosts on Fashion Police, and I am going to miss her badly. Fashion Police will not be (read can never be) the same without Joan Rivers.

RIP my fashion yoda.
