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.)

Latin American Brunch at Rojo Gusano

I love brunch. I also love Mexican food. Yet, I almost never eat Mexican Brunch. What can I say, I’m a man of contradictions. The sad thing is that when I think about what I want for brunch, I almost never think about eating Mexican food. This changes today though after I had an incredible meal at Rojo Gusano.

Taking Stock Of The New Stock And Ledger!

You know what I almost never order at a restaurant? Lamb. It’s just not a go-to meat.

So let me tell you this, when you come to Stock …
