Under Chuc management the Magazine has gone downhill. The staff are friendly and helpful, but gone are the Zaha Hadid furniture and cutlery that used to match her beautiful building. Now we have airline lounge with Muzak, pizzas, burgers, high prices and slow service.

The Magazine was recommended by a friend, and we were not disappointed. It's a beautiful space designed by the late Zaha Hadid, architect with an excellent menu and brilliant wine choices.
