Nicholas Kirkwood

Eat
At Kitty Fishers in Shepherd’s Market. It’s a tiny restaurant with really delicious, heavy English food. Also Umu, which is a Japanese restaurant, is perfect for a special occasion or a treat.

Drink

I don’t drink coffee, but I love hot chocolate. I go to this place around the corner from my studio on Broadwick Street in Soho called Said - they do the most indulgent hot chocolates.

Relax

Go for a walk through Hyde Park, especially if it’s a nice day.

Soak up some culture

Serpentine Galleries always have fantastic exhibitions on.

Eat

At Scott's in Mayfair, which began life as an oyster bar on Haymarket in 1851, and then moved to Mayfair in the Sixties. It’s a London institution filled with history, but more importantly, it has the best Dover Sole in town.

Grab a healthy juice

At The Mae Deli owned by Deliciously Ella, which is a stone’s throw from my townhouse store.

Drink

At a great little place near my store called Mount Street Deli, it has the best coffee.

Mary Alice Malone and Roy Luwolt | The Tate | Royal Academy of Arts | Umu | Park Chinois

Mary Alice Malone and Ray Luwolt of Malone Souliers

Soak up some culture

At The Royal Academy of Arts, and the Tate is phenomenal too.

Eat

At Umu in Mayfair, which is quite understated. Also, Park Chinois, which is a new Chinese restaurant a few streets from where we live.
