I live and work in London and as much as I appreciate English food, my heart lies with New York, where I used to live. I have travelled the world and tried all kinds of food, it’s a true passion. 

Having waitressed in many restaurants when I was younger and dined in all kinds of places, I feel I have a knack for seeing the essence of a place and determining it’s strengths and weaknesses. I also do a lot of mystery shopping on the side, so I’m aware of what great service can be and how so often it falls short.

I love sushi, fresh food, burger bars, thai food and anything and everything. I have an aversion to pretentious ‘guinea fowl’ food (think ox cheek and jowl, bone marrow etc) basically things that sound very unappetising. I’m half Viennese and grew up on schnitzel, creamed spinach & potato salad and I love it!

I call it like it is and am very honest when it comes to my reviews. But, I also love to cook, so there is also a mix of recipes to explore on laymytable too. 

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy my blog!
