Alex

Alex Shebar is constantly reminded that he is an American. Of course, this is what happens when you move to London but haven't quite given up the accent (he does spell "favourite" with a 'u' and say, "rubbish," though.)

Born in Boston, and Yelp's former Community Manager of Cincinnati, he emigrated to The Old Smoke in 2012 and never looked back.

Alex now enjoys bad films, strong gin and a brightly coloured Instagram account. Hopefully you enjoy his posts about London and around the world (or at least, those previously mentioned brightly coloured photos.)

Brunching at Fonda San Miguel

Upscale Mexican brunch you say? Consider me intrigued. I do love brunch, oh how I love brunch. Sunday morning lazy sleepy and a little bit drunk brunch. You are singing my song and that song is called, “I love brunch.” Now, you must note, I am not biased against any type of brunch. In fact, I am excited about brunches in all forms. So when …
