My Fitzrovia Valentine’s Favourites (Sponsored)

My Fitzrovia Valentine’s Favourites (Sponsored)

 

Fitzrovia is an area of London I spend a lot of time in. Charlotte Street, parallel to Tottenham Court Road is packed  full of restaurants and bars making it an easy choice for a nice dinner or after-work drink (pre-covid of course) . With Valentine’s Day around the corner, Fitzrovia would be getting ready to welcome hoards of couples and friends celebrating over good food and a bottle of wine. As we know, that’s not possible right now due to the current situation. However, the teams behind some of Fitzrovia’s top haunts don’t want you to miss out their Valentine’s day experiences and have put together a selection of home kits for you to re-create your night out in Fitzrovia at home. Below are a selection of boxes on offer from 5 of Fitzrovia’s top restaurants and bars with details on how to order ready for 14th Feb!
