Highlights February 2018

While February may be the shortest month of the year, at Kapranos we strive hard to make sure it’s one of our busiest. Whether we’re sourcing the frying pans for Shrove Tuesday, feeling festive for Chinese New Year or getting loved-up on Valentine’s Day, February always packs in the punches and here are some of our best bits.

Niall Davidson’s Irish joint NUALA has been making serious waves since it opened back in January. The Financial Times’ Tim Hayward visited NUALA and here was his reaction: ‘I once found a £50 note on a deserted beach. This was an equally inexplicable, uncomplicated joy.’

Highlights January 2018

Even the most jovial of us can find January a rather dark, dreary and depressing time of the year.
