EAT SOME TOP-NOTCH MEXICAN: Ernesto ‘Kut’ Gómez At Carousel
After training in multi-starred Michelin kitchens around Europe, Ernesto ‘Kut’ Gómez moved to Vancouver and established a couple of popular Mexican restaurants, including fine-dining Fayuca. He’s briefly back in London this weekend, gracing the kitchen at Carousel. Known for his ‘North Pacific Mexican’ cuisine, he’ll introduce guests to a menu of dishes made using bio-diverse ingredients like single-origin corn to make the best-tasting tortillas known to man (or so he claims), sourced from the outer reaches of Mexico.

DRINK SUSTAINABLY: Nine Lives X Abigail’s Bar
At Vinegar Yard, 70s-style Abigail’s Bar is hosting a takeover by cosy London Bridge watering hole Nine Lives. Star of the show is a cocktail menu inspired by sustainability. If a drink made from leftovers like pomegranate husk or lemon rind doesn’t sound appealing, rest assured, the ingredients are expertly sourced from street food traders at Vinegar Yard – and cocktails have been designed by Tommasco Cicala, Ziggy Barascu and Sweet & Chilli. If you’re trying to live a bit more sustainably, this is probably one of the easier changes you can make.
