The Sharif don't like it.

Grace Dent reviews Herman Ze German

standard.co.uk — You are possibly here looking for a restaurant recommendation, to which I say do please go to The Colony Grill Room in Mayfair. It's downstairs at spanking new hotel The Beaumont. OK, don't all go, as it's my new favourite hangout and I'm sure some of you probably eat with your mouths open.

The rise of Russell Brand and Nigel Farage has proved one thing - the rest of our politicians are an indistinguishable mess

independent.co.uk — His eight-bedroom ancestral home Stansgate Abbey Farm was placed in a trust and so will not be subject to inheritance tax. There's nothing wrong with this. It's legally watertight. Paying large lumps of cash to the taxman is a very unpleasant business, in my opinion.

Grace Dent reviews Tredwell's

standard.co.uk — I have eaten especially well of late. The gods of gout have been kind. Foolishly, I'd left it until now to try the Typing Room in Bethnal Green where the seven-course tasting menu of celeriac, bass, Iberico presa and titivated cauliflower flies by in a sensory blur. Do go.

Sorry Judy Finnigan, but Ched Evans is no less sickening than an alleyway rapist

independent.co.uk — This wasn't a "violent" rape, Finnigan said. It was in a hotel room and the victim was drunk. Evans has "served his time". Evans may have to "brave" ill-feeling from crowds if he returned to work. Finnigan has since apologised unreservedly for these comments, saying they were "badly worded".

Grace Dent reviews Pond Dalston

standard.co.uk — One of the curious pleasures of my job is how my nights out are so damn unpredictable. Restaurants with press releases boasting all the buzz words that make a critic gooey and pliable often transpire to bebig dull duds.

The case of Brenda Leyland and the McCanns is a thoroughly modern tale of internet lawlessness

independent.co.uk — Ms. Leyland, I cannot help but feel, is yet another victim of what I've termed "the internet wild west era" in which we're living. The rules of civility are yet to be established. We're naught but electronic guinea pigs. One man's "troll" is another man's prophet of truth.

Grace Dent reviews Kirazu

standard.co.uk — Since my last epistle, London has been bestowed, via the Michelin-star bunny, with numerous new twinkling droppings, sending booking systems wild. One star went to Gymkhana, shooting one's odds of a last-minute Friday night venison keema naan down to 'more chance of a heavy petting session with Tom Hardy' level.

Grace Dent on TV: Dapper Laughs is unpleasant sexism dressed up as 'banter'

independent.co.uk — Half peacock, half jackal, permanently on the lookout for skirt. Oh, he's a one. It's shocking the way he carries on, it is! But lads will be lads. There's a moment in the opening credits of Happy Days where the Fonz approaches a mirror to perfect his quiff, then realises he is already staring at perfection.

Grace Dent reviews Bobo Social

standard.co.uk — Last week I delivered several strong reasons to nuke St Katharine Docks, replacing it with tarmac or a Fatty Arbuckles or a roller disco. But I'm not all fire and brimstone - for this week, I come with reasons to love Charlotte Street, W1.

@DarkBeige that's when I listen to my Sisters of Mercy vinyl in a headband.

@hayleycampbelly every day is Halloween for me. Sick of these part-timers.
