Coventry Cathedral Tower – Old Gold in the City Centre

You know I lived in Coventry for three years. Not sequentially, of course. But in my time there, I had been to the Cathedral countless times. The more devoted Cedric Suggestibles among you will recall that I reviewed Rising Cafe very early on in the Cedric Suggests...

Boston Tea Party – A Regular Harborne Haunt

It's been just over one year since I arrived in the wonderful city of Birmingham. This city which has in so short a time, done so much for me. Not by itself of course, cities are not sentient beings (Coventry being the exception). The amalgam of my experiences here...

Legoland Birmingham – Halloween-Themed Treat

Some of you may recall that I have extolled the virtues of Legoland last year. I'm not in the habit of repeating myself consciously but this place is really worth talking about. As per, I was invited to go to the Adult Night at Legoland. One can compare the different...

The Heuriger – Astonishing Austrian, Grinzing

The Heuriger is an institution in Vienna. The idea is simple: serve new wines, locally sourced, together with a largely cold buffet, add some traditional Viennese songs in the background for some extra Gemütlichkeit, and watch the paying public come rolling on in....

Hclub London – Metronomy Session

Being a member of the Deezer, I am already privy to a superb array of music. What I did not expect was an email out of the blue while at work, inviting me to go and see Metronomy for their first Deezer session. I was one of their top streamers. This was to be held at...

Three Killers – A Poem

St Nick and I disagree on a host of conversational pieces, chiefly whether Britain should return to the gold standard. But one thing we can agree on is that I have written a few poems. Below is embedded one which came to me in a dream. Subsequently, I wrote it out...

The English Riviera, Metronomy – AOTM September 2019

From the opening bars, one can tell that this offering from Metronomy is really quite singular. I have admired this British band for some time but hitherto only knew about their singles. Delving into their albums was nothing short of sheer joy. Matthew insists Summer...

Lisson Art Gallery – Modernity at its Best, Marylebone

Of course by the time I am writing this, it is too late to see these fabulous exhibitions. But I will waffle on regardless. The Lisson Art Gallery is what I would consider a hidden gem in Marylebone. The exhibition itself is split between two buildings on the same...

Arco Lounge – Delightful Lunch Harborne

Can you tell by the cover photo that I used to be big on instagram? No? Me neither. In any case, I followed my post-Mass Sunday lunch tradition this week in Arco Lounge. I'd noticed this bright cafe since moving to Birmingham but must confess that this was my first...

Podcast: Siddhartha, Herrmann Hesse – A Reflective Review

When Rishi sent me this book, I did not know how profoundly it would affect me and those close to me. Reading it gave me an insight into life. Any book which manages to do so is only to be lauded. I shan't say any more because the podcast is just over 30 minutes long....

Hello and welcome to CEDRIC SUGGESTS, specially designed for those of us who are partial to a slice or three of The Culinary Arts…

But Nota Bene Dear Reader: this blog is NOT limited to my recipe and restaurant ramblings alone! I shall also take it upon myself to decribe my various other encounters and experiences in this wonderful world we all share. Expect recommendations of excellent service received, for example, and lively discussions on a variety of exhilerating sublects like as Fashion, Art, Education, Religion and Fitness my word. Not forgetting my regular Favourite Albums of the Month / Year feature. Are you ready? Then enter Freunde, Étranger, Stranger…
