It's Competition Time!!!
We have teamed up with one of London’s hottest new restaurants, Sam's Riverside, to offer you the chance to win a lunch or supper for two and Sam will choose one of his favourite bottles of wine to go with it!
Legendary restaurateur, Sam Harrison has returned to London with his brand new brasserie, Sam’s Riverside. It’s a beautiful space with sweeping views of the Thames and Hammersmith Bridge – the menu is designed by Sam and head chef Harvey. Say no more...
To be in with the chance to win this enticing prize all you have to do is follow the FRANGIPANI Instagram page, tag the person you'd like to take and comment on this post. One winner will be picked on the 13th February.
Sam lives in Frangipani which is only right for such a charming character.
We have asked Sam some question's about his Frangipani stye and his newly opened restaurant, we hope you enjoy!
How many Frangipanis do you own? Which is your favourite and why?
"I now have over 20 shirts and love them all. I guess my favourites are probably the Bomb Shell and the Palmistree. People always comment on them and tell me that they match my glasses! People ask if I specially co-ordinate them !"
If you were to design a shirt for us, what would the design be and why?
"I would probably try and match the exact colours of my glasses and maybe a print related to food and drink. Or maybe mini images of Hammersmith Bridge, where my new restaurant is situated next to"
Have you ever had any interesting comments (good or bad) while wearing a Frangipani at the restaurant?
"I get comments almost on a daily basis. People love the shirts are always asking me where I get them or telling me what a great selection I have- they love the colours. They say how well they compliment the design and style of the new restaurant"
This all about shirts, tell us a bit about Sam’s and why you’re back in the restaurant game after a few years out...
"Sam’s is my new restaurant right on the river next to Hammersmith Bridge. I call it "grown up” Sam’s. I was 32 when I opened Sam’s Brasserie and 46 when I opened Sam’s Riverside last year! After selling my last 2 restaurants in 2015 I wasn’t sure I wanted to do another restaurant, but this was just too good a site and it got me so excited when I saw it. I really believe we have some of the best views in London and also we are attached to the fabulous new Riverside Studios. It gave me the opportunity to design and build the restaurant I has always wanted"
What’s the coolest place you’ve been to in a Frangipani?
"I have had great comments about my shirts all around the world. I had someone stop me in the lift at The Ace Hotel in LA and ask me for details of where to get them. I was in Bali over Christmas last year and there are some incredible restaurants, bars and clubs. Every time I went out someone said “love your shirt!"
