We team up with the bible of fine London dining Squaremeal to discover child friendly hotspots. Jimi Famurewa, contributor to the largest male magazine ShortList, and soon to be author, was accompanied by his son Dylan and their iCandy Raspberry.
The feature, titled “Dad does the dishes”, features some of London’s most prominent venues such as the world famous Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge, and the Grain store located close to Kings Cross Station.
In anticipation for the summer issue, we wanted to share some snaps from behind the scenes of the shoot with you. Jimi and Dylan visited a variety of London restaurants, indulging in hand-made pastries during high tea at the Rosebery Lounge, Mandarin Oriental Hotel to a scrumptious healthy lunch menu at the Grain Store.
The iCandy MiChair is now available to guests at the Mandarin hotel’s afternoon tea space, the first time a luxury highchair has been available for guests eating at a premier London location. The iCandy MiChair will launch in autumn 2016, the stylish crafted piece of furniture grows with your family; eventually turning into a rocking chair and nursery chair. The chair is suitable from birth up to the age of 6 years
With its easy wipe clean surfaces, and stunning beech wood finish, the iCandy MiChair fits in perfectly with the iconic décor of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. After high tea at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, the duo swiftly hopped on to the underground with their iCandy Raspberry providing the ideal travel companion in-between stops. Designed to tackle urban surroundings, the lightweight Raspberry glides through the busy city streets with its four wheel suspension. The quick and easy pushchair can be easily folded and tucked away when dining.
Be sure to read the full list of family hot spots this summer. Discover Jimi’s thoughts on his Raspberry, the iCandy MiChair, and the ten venues he visited with his son Dylan. Never miss a lunch date again, with the right tools, being a parent doesn’t mean you have to miss out on those moments of dining with friends, or face being consigned to a lesser dining experience.
Jimi and Dylan travelled across London to visit these destinations with the aim of finding the very best places to eat.
