This Week The Mice Have Mostly Been...

You know when you just wanna get drunk like its Friday, well I have fantastic news ... that day is here and it's time to get boozy!!!

Well the biggy that's been taking over our lives this week is getting ready for the wedding of the year, yep Hong Kong mouse is getting hitched - screammmmmmmmmm! More on that in a few weeks when we have pics to share - double screammmmmmmmmm! Other than that, we've been eating well, listening to lots of great music and beautifying ourselves to the max ready for the BIG DAY. More on that below because This Week The Mice Have Mostly Been...

Feeling sexy at new foodie hot spot, Sexy Fish. Everybody went crazy over the arrival of Chiltern Firehouse and I think Sexy Fish is going to stir the same buzz about town. The VIP launch party saw Rita Ora perform and big fashion names grace the space including Kate Moss, Lindsay Lohan, Alice Temperley, Tracey Emin and Matthew Williamson. 

My good pal Caroline and I were lucky enough to check it out during soft launch, ahead of opening to the public on 19th October. We headed there for lunch and were pretty much blown away by every detail from the divine food to the jaw dropping interior and art pieces spanning the space. 

Caprice Holdings and Richard Caring are behind the concept, also famous for well known restaurants including The Ivy, J Sheekey and Daphne's. The space has been designed by Martin Brudnizki also responsible for making the likes of Dean Street Townhouse, Scott's and Hix super sexy! Spectacular art pieces have also been commissioned from Frank Gehry (who was behind the Guggenheim in Bilbao) and Damien Hirst who needs no introduction. Expect to be wowed by origami style fish hanging above the bar, a 13ft giant crocodile crawling up one of the dining room walls, two bronze mermaids that act as bookends at the bar plus a huge ceiling mural from Michael Roberts, Style Editor-at-Large of Vanity Fair. It's safe to say only the vey best names in the business have been called upon for this launch.

Now for the food - my favourite part! Sexy Fish offers an asian-inspired menu which was impressive in every sense. We picked off a few dishes that sounded too good to eat including buttermilk popcorn chicken, prawn soldiers, baked Alaskan crab and roasted truffle infused quail with chargrilled avocado. 

 For puds we opted for doughnuts with lemon and chocolate dipping sauce and a beautiful rice pudding with all the trimmings!

We've heard great things about the 90 nine-course tasting menu so that's on the list for round II. Bring it on!

Making everything better with music. I'm a bit Shazam cray cray at the minute, any time I'm watching TV (mostly Suits) and the scene is set to an epic song, I fumble frantically like a mad person trying to shazam it and catch it whilst I can! Here's my pick of fav songs of the moment.

Pick me up...

Sugar - featuring Francesco Yates and Robin Schulz

Fade Out Lines - The Avener & Phoebe Killdeer

Listen and love!

That brings me to end of my Friday bulletin! All that's left to say is...

So.............. make it happen this weekend! We certainly will be in Hong Kong! On that note we're taking next week as annual leave from the blog - don't miss us too much.

Lots of Love

The Mice
