Bow-tied barkeeps run the show at this velvet-seated Parisian spot in midtown’s Iroquois Hotel. There are four types of ice cubes to add life to the vintage 1920s cocktail list; the Poet’s Dream mingles gin, dry vermouth, Benedictine and a splash of orange bitters, and the Maison Charles is a refreshing mix of muddled mint, white rum and lime juice. Classic drinks are mad (from NYMag)

LARDO

From TimeOut London: Lardo is the cured back fat of rare-breed pigs, a white slab of grease scented with herbs that’s highly prized by the Italians. You’ll be pleased to know that the fabled fat makes a sporadic appearance alongside pizza and charcuterie at this all-day eatery which opened a few weeks ago in the hip Arthaus studio/gallery/apartment complex just off Mare Street.

NATURAL BREAD Co.

Tiny bakery in “Historic Woodstock” deep in Oxfordshire right next to Blenheim Palace that serves a surprisingly good flat white – we had coffees from 2 different baristas and they were up there with most London third wave coffee houses. Grab a spelt loaf and some gluten-free goodies on the way out. Serves Has Bean coffee.
