Sunday Roast is a weekly British tradition that I wish we had in the States. There’s nothing more satisfying than roasted meat, crispy soft Yorkshire pudding and roasted vegetables topped with savory gravy. Here are five spots you should try next time you’re in London.

The Albion, Islington
This Georgian gem serves up everything from Roast Sussex Lamb Rump to Slow Roast Hampshire Pork Belly to 28-Day-Aged Rare-Breed Beef With Yorkshire Pudding, plus desserts like Sticky Toffee Pudding With Honeycomb Ice Cream.
10 Thornhill Road
London N1 1HW
+44 20 7607 7450

The Jolly Butchers
If heavy doses of Sunday Roast and all the fixings are what you’re after, go to the Jolly Butchers in Stoke Newington, where you get an ample serving of meat, along with all the fixings, and a large selection of ciders.
204 Stoke Newington High Street
London N16 7HU

The Princess of Shoreditch
Beef sirloin, pork rib-eye, lamb shoulder and poussin are all regulars on the Sunday menu, where slow-cooking ensures juicy and flavorful cuts of meat. Duck fat adds an extra bit of flavor to the roasted potatoes,
76-78 Paul Street
London EC2A 4NE
+44 20 7729 9270

Dean Street Townhouse
If something a little more refined is what you prefer, go to the Dean Street Townhouse for that private club ambience. Have some Hereford Beef or Banham Chicken with roast potatoes and cauliflower cheese.
69 – 71 Dean St
London W1D 3SE
+44 20 7434 1775

The Truscott Arms
There’s a reason why this Maida Vale pub got voted Best British Roast Restaurant last year — it’s because of its rich gravy, tasty, tender meat, and puffy Yorkshire pudding. Go for the smoked English lamb leg and braised shoulder with garlic and rosemary infused lamb sauce.
55 Shirland Rd
London W9 2JD

You Can Chill Red Wines, Too. Here Are 5 Varietals to Try
chilled red wine

It’s long been said: Chill your white wines and rosés, but not your reds. Why not?
Sure, many benefit from room temperature treatment, opening up and making a bigger presence felt both in terms of flavor and aromatics, but some reds can benefit from a cool-down, especially in midsummer when cold — or, at least slightly chilled — is all the more attractive. (We're not talking as cold as the Rockies, after all.)

Here are some red wine styles you might consider tossing in the fridge for twenty minutes or so just before you pop the cork (or unscrew the cap).

Following 42 years at Tanqueray, one of the world’s quintessential gin brands, Tom Nichol retired, but that didn’t mean he was done. Instead, he’s emerged in Kansas City helping J. Rieger & Co. launch an authentic London-style dry gin in the American Midwest.

Midwestern Dry Gin hit the markets and while he’s made lots of gin variants in his career, he knows this one shares the same quality all the others have as well.
“As soon as I met the guys in Kansas City, I knew this was a project that was meant to be,” Nichol said. “The simple side of things was that this gin for the Rieger family was more personal to me.”
