- ‘Shark Drunk,’ by Morten Strøksnes
By Peter Lewis - Friday Jun 30, 2017
The photos are often grainy and fugitive, because the shark, being a Greenlander, likes it cold, in the shark’s case typically 4,000 feet under the water’s surface.The Greenland shark is the totemic protagonist of Norwegian journalist Morten Strksnes’s prime, digressive — a brand of free association that knows when to rein in — entertainment, “Shark Drunk.”Partaking of the flesh in its pristine state results in a feeling supposedly similar to taking in an extreme amount of alcohol or hallucinogenic drugs.Icelanders consider the flesh a delicacy once properly prepared, which requires “repeated boiling, drying, or even burying the meat until it ferments.”The elemental Why? anyone should choose to monkey around with the Greenland shark is that its liver is a vast repository of oil, and whale oil was a big thing for a good long time: to light lamps, make soap, and as a cooking oil.[...] he doesn’t treat it like some gonzo bizarrerie, but as chromatic, investigative work, one in which you can laugh instead of feel nothing but grim.Aasjord, on the other hand, has longtime family ties to the area — for many natives of which the shark has, understandably, shamanic qualities — so even a momentary communing with the creature would be a numinous experience.Luckily, Aasjord had found the perfect bait right before the weather would bring the light air and calm seas needed to fish from a rubber dinghy in “the deep, salty black sea ... cold and indifferent, lacking all empathy” for a shark that weighs as much as a Studebaker: the rotting remains of a fairly recently slaughtered Scottish Highland bull, waiting for them patiently in the summer warmth of a nearby field.Heroically, they gather the remains in garbage bags, and it is Strksnes’s job to chum; that is, to toss most of the bull remains into the water to arouse the shark’s olefactory interest.Most bioluminescence produced by various deep-sea species is blue, and blue light is the only color most of these species are capable of seeing.[...] the equally spooky sound of the sea’s underwater, “a deep humming that emanates from itself,” long sea swells creating trembles on the sea floor.

- Suite Spot: The Westbury, London
By Jeanne Cooper - Wednesday Aug 9, 2017
Between the designer boutiques of New Bond Street and the tailors of Savile Row, amid an architectural gamut from Georgian to modern mid-rise buildings. The Westbury’s recent renovations, which reduced the total number of rooms to 225 but increased the number of suites, brought Italian fabrics, redwood paneling, marble bathrooms and Nespresso machines. In-house dining is pricey but suitably exquisite, from the inventive seasonal cuisine of Michelin-starred chef Alyn Williams to artfully presented morsels at Tsukiji Sushi and expert cocktails at the discreetly clubby Polo Bar. Prix-fixe lunches at Alyn Williams and Tsukiji Sushi offer the best values year-round, while the Polo Bar serves an elegant afternoon tea, but only in summer. [...] within a 10-minute walk, the similarly obscured Shepherd’s Market offers a jumble of quaint pubs and restaurants. For longer stays, consider upgrading to one of 64 suites, the smallest at 388 square feet, with sofa, walk-in shower and separate bath.
