British food was once considered Europe's poor culinary relation, but over the past five years the capital's restaurant scene has matured exponentially. If last year was all about the Middle East (The Palomar's Israeli plates are still London's best), 2017 seems keen on southern Asia. Madame D's is dishing up Himalayan-style sharing plates in Spitalfields; while one of last year's favourite openings, the Sri Lankan-inspired Hoppers, has just opened a second spot in St Christopher's Place.
Gatsby, Somerset GatsbyWincanton, SomersetThere is a moment, coming down the drive, when a gap between thick hedges reveals a tantalising first glimpse of Gatsby, before you round a final bend and arrive at the heavy oak front door set into mellow stone. Bought in 2010 by fashion and interior designer Sophie Hale and her husband, Roland, the Grade I-listed house near Wincanton is part-Jacobean, part-Georgian and has been restored by architect Ptolemy Dean.
A summer scene is ramping up on Portugal's West Coast, as artists, a-listers and surfers revel in the beach-shack vibe of ComportaSome people will want to say Comporta in the same breath as Ibiza, but, really, they're missing the point altogether. Comporta is not Ibiza. It is not St Tropez 30 years ago. It is not Montauk or Tarifa, Oualidia or Trancoso.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
