Tish

Opens 29th July 2018

Tish Opens 29th July 2018 Tish opens on Sunday 29th July 2018 in the heart of leafy Belsize Park. Hungarian bean soup, chicken schnitzel and challah French toast are just three of the dishes at Tish, a European restaurant with a Jewish menu in Belsize Park. In the kitchen is head chef John Ellison, previously at Bob Bob Ricard and at The Club at The Ivy. General manager is the experienced and charismatic Yuri Horpinchenko, formerly of Scott's, J Sheekey, Isabel Mayfair and, prior to coming here, general manager at Casa Cruz ("how this sexy South American restaurant became the hottest spot in town" ran the Tatler review in 2016). This restaurant has been owner David S Levin's dream since childhood. The tone is set by four grand brass chandeliers dangling from the 15-foot ceiling, mint green wood panelled walls, and a cream and green checkerboard terrazzo flooring in the dining room. It opens out onto a large outdoor terrace with patterned seating and parasols in summer, heaters and weather proofing in winter. See the chefs at work in the open kitchen, under a dramatic giant copper canopy, cooking a special Shabbat menu for Friday night dinners and Saturday lunches. 2018/07/29 Where:

Chiringuito

Opens July 2018

Chiringuito Opens July 2018 Chiringuito opens in Bethnal Green in July 2018. Azure mosaic tiles and a peseta-topped bar set the tone for this Spanish restaurant overlooking the Museum of Childhood 's gardens. Taking its name from the all-day beachfront bar and restaurants in Spain, Chiringuito is a laid back beach-style restaurant in Bethnal Green. It's the passion project of local East Londoner Alex Dehayen who has previously converted a derelict public toilet block, next to Bethnal Green tube station, into a contemporary all-day bar. Peruvian Head Chef, Marco Padilla has created a menu reminiscent of a tapas bars in Barcelona and inspired by fresh Hispanic and Latin American flavours. So you'll find all the classic dishes - padron peppers, patatas bravas, gambas al ajillo - with Mexican influences and South American signatures like seabass ceviche. Cocktails also put Latino twists on classics arriving at interesting mixes like the Bloody Maria, with a kick of tequila or mezcal. 2018/07/31 Where:

Manifesto

Opens July 2018

Manifesto Opens July 2018 Manifesto opens on Northcote Road, Clapham, in July 2018. The menu at Manifesto is short, six pizzas plus one weekly 'gourmet special'. No desserts and a wine list of two reds, two whites and one prosecco. The terrazzo style pizzeria on Northcote Road in Clapham comes from a former Natoora Director, Vittorio Maschio, who therefore knows a thing or two about provenance - he was in charge of high-end ingredient sales to Michelin starred chefs across London. Quality ingredients include flour sourced from Molino Pasini, owned by the same family for over 80 years. Being Italian, Vittorio believes quality pizza is the perfect vehicle for fine produce to be enjoyed, at a price that won't break the bank - pizzas start at six pounds. The Biga-style of dough production, which takes 48 hours to prove, is the technique used at the 30-cover restaurant, decorated in tiles based on the colours of a tomato: black, green and red. 2018/07/31 Where:

The Frog Hoxton

Opens end of July 2018

The Frog Hoxton Opens end of July 2018 The Frog Hoxton opens at the end of July 2018. In July 2018, Adam Handling launches his biggest venture to date, moving The Frog E1 - his award-winning Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurant - to a new, larger site on Hoxton Square. Under the same roof as The Frog Hoxton is Bean & Wheat, Adam's sustainable coffee shop and deli, and a new bar concept, Iron Stag, specialising in whiskies and with space for a live jazz band. The three individual venues have their own separate entrances on three different streets - the building sits on the corner joining Hoxton Square, Rufus Street, and Old Street - so each experience is distinct. The 60 cover restaurant retains everything guests love about the original Frog in Ely Yard but in a more refined style. Furniture and artworks recreate the original restaurant's personality and the signature wall panel, signed by celebrity chefs, remains. A ward-winning bartender Rich Woods (aka The Cocktail Guy) and Matt Whiley (The Talented Mr Fox, behind Scout) have helped decide what goes behind the bar and, in the interests of sustainability, customers are encouraged to bring their empty beer bottles back in exchange for free coffees. 2018/07/31 Where:

A former office building in the heart of west Soho has been transformed into the Z Tottenham Court Road which, in keeping with the Z hotels brand, keeps costs low and rooms small. Trading in affordable accommodation, the 121-room budget hotel offers rooms in central London for less than £100 a night. If you're on a really tight budget - and don't mind a windowless room - go for an internal double and you'll have five pounds in your pocket (the saving on the next size up). What you can count on are comfortable beds, air conditioning, an en-suite shower with complimentary toiletries, smart TV with games, apps and the complete Sky package including all sports and movie channels as well as free Wi-Fi and complimentary cheese and wine between 5 and 8pm every evening in the Z Cafe. This eight-floor Z hotel in Poland Street, a couple of minutes walk from Tottenham Court Road's Crossrail Station, is the first of two Z hotels to open in central London in summer 2018; it's followed by Z Covent Garden - joining the Z Soho nearby and Z Piccadilly, a short tube ride away. 2018/08/01 Where:

Boxpark Wembley

Opens late 2018

Boxpark Wembley Opens late 2018 Boxpark Wembley opens in late 2018 in Wembley Park. First we had Boxpark Shoreditch, the first shopping mall made out of shipping containers, then came Boxpark Croydon and in 2018 we're getting a third Boxpark, in Wembley. Bringing a slice of urban street cred to Wembley, Boxpark Wembley will no doubt become a byword for pop up shops and superior street food, just like its sister sites. Boxpark Wembley will differ slightly - instead of shipping containers, it will come with a completely new and bespoke building design on Olympic Way. There will be 29 units for food and a cultural hub where over 200 events will be held, year round. Live music, events, talks and workshops will be held in one of two spaces - an expansive 2,000 capacity events space or a separate, more intimate 300-capacity venue. 2018/12/01 Where:

Vista Hotel

Opens Late 2018

Vista Hotel Opens Late 2018 The Wanda Vista Hotel opens in late 2018. Part of One Nine Elms, a mixed-use development which overlooks the river Thames at Battersea, the Wanda Vista Hotel will be the first Chinese 5 star hotel by the Wanda brand in the UK when it's complete - expected to be in late 2018. Occupying the smaller, 45 storey (160 metre) tower at the Nine Elms regeneration site which stretches between Vauxhall and Battersea, the hotel will sit alongside a taller 60 storey high rise - one of Western Europe's tallest residential developments. There will be 436 flats and 3,600 square feet of shops next to the hotel which is expected to consist of 187 rooms at a cost of £700 million. Banqueting and conferencing facilities, a restaurant and brassiere, as well as a swimming pool and health spa located in the podium building are all part of the hotel plans. Entry to the hotel would be from the central plaza located between the City and River Towers. The vast 480-acre Nine Elms regeneration site straddling Wandsworth and Lambeth boroughs is undergoing massive regeneration with the US embassy, offices, flats, retail and leisure areas all being built, served by an extension to the tube's Northern line due to open in 2016. At the western end of the site, Battersea Power Station is being redeveloped as a mixed-use scheme by its Malaysian owners. 2018/12/1 Where:

Native

Opened 17th July 2018

Native Opened 17th July 2018 After three successful years in Neal's Yard, Native has relocated to London Bridge, a stone's throw from Borough Market. Co-founded by Imogen Davis and Chef-Patron Ivan Tisdall-Downes, who met at university, trained at River Cottage and ran supper clubs, the restaurant specialises in foraged food, rare breeds and game. Hugely passionate about nose to tail and stem to root eating, they are wild about game meat. But instead of a delicacy, game, rare-breed meats and wild food are given the street food treatment making them more accessible in both approach and price. Dishes like pigeon kebab and Southern fried rabbit are served alongside foraged and vegetarian dishes. The drinks menu puts British wines centre stage and there are sparkling wines as well as regularly-changing seasonal cocktails. Large windows allow plenty of natural light to stream in, highlighting exposed brick and trailing greenery. For the best seat in the house, book in at the chef's table and enjoy an 8 course tasting menu at the polished concrete table in the kitchen. 2018/07/17 Where:

Opened 16th July 2018

Caravan Fitzrovia Opened 16th July 2018 In the former BBC Radio 1 HQ where Reggie Yates used to run through The Official Charts, Caravan Fitzrovia brings all day dining and craft coffee to central London and introduces 'Caravan-To-Go' - great coffee and food to take away. Caravan has sites all over London - in Exmouth Market, Bankside, King's Cross and in the City, in Bloomberg Arcade - but this one on Great Portland Street is their most central yet. In a nod to the building's history, the basement (where BBC R1's music collection was stored) has a 'record room' for private dining and parties with the option to hire the space. Upstairs, a large bar weaves throughout three dining rooms, making it the perfect destination for post-work drinks and dining all day. H ealthy food like poached chicken, purple kale, greens and rice has a global flavour, inspired by its New Zealand owners and their travels. Sourdough and croissants are made in-house at Caravan's own flagship roastery and bakery (also opening in summer 2018) in a Victorian warehouse in north London. Eat in and you can enjoy one of the best brunches and coffee against a backdrop of terracotta brick walls, stone surfaces and natural light. Serious about sustainability, they offer a reusable lunchbox and coffee cup scheme - get 50p off if you bring your own reusable cups. 2018/07/16 Where:

London Shuffle Club

Opened 4th July 2018

London Shuffle Club Opened 4th July 2018 After three years of pop ups in places like the Truman Brewery, the shuffleboard experts, the London Shuffle Club, have a permanent home in Shoreditch from July 2018. New to the game? You'll soon pick it up. The sport originated on the decks of cruise ships in the early 20th century and tasks you with sliding your weighted pucks or 'biscuits' down a long, smooth wooden board and onto a scoring triangle at the opposite end of your lane. But beware: overshoot and you'll end up in the 'kitchen'. You won't have to do the washing up but you will loose 10 points and risk being mocked by your friends. The beauty of the game is that anyone can play - not just sporting freaks or gym geeks - and it can be played with a cocktail in hand. The large, tastefully designed, colourful space features an open-air shuffleboard terrace, guest ales and cocktails on rotation, served from an Airstream, as well as live music. With places like Flight Club and the Shuffle Club, London has a whole new world of stylish sports-in-bars. 2018/07/04 Where:

Hard Rock Hotel London

Opened 2018

Hard Rock Hotel London Opened 2018 How apt that a place once frequented by guitar legend Jimi Hendrix will become the Hard Rock Hotel London. A conversion of the existing Cumberland Hotel, and a short walk from the Hard Rock Cafe, the hotel will, not surprisingly, turn up the rock n roll factor with live music events by both local and international musicians. Guests arriving at the 900-room Hard Rock Hotel, which is at Marble Arch and so benefits from those panoramic views over Hyde Park, will walk into at a vast, welcoming lobby lounge - a place that's made for cocktails and live music. As you'd expect from the Hard Rock, a brand which has made its name with this sort of thing, there'll be curated memorabilia on displayed in the hotel and a memorabilia vault, housing some of Hard Rock's 80,000 or so historical pieces. An on-site Hard Rock Cafe and a Rock Shop, spa, restaurant and speakeasy bar plus free unlimited Wi-Fi complete the package. A hotel in the spirit of Hendrix. 2018/06/30 Where:

Opened 19th June 2018

The Royal Oak Opened 19th June 2018 On 8th June 2018 Dan Doherty, chef, author and judge on BBC's Britain's Best Cook, announced on Instagram that he'd bought this beautiful pub in Marylebone. Ten days after getting the keys, following a good scrub down, a lick of paint and some fresh hanging baskets, he reopened The Royal Oak with little fanfare and some really good beers. Giving an honest account of bringing the Marylebone pub back to life via Instagram, fans of the chef - who first came to our attention when he was at Duck & Waffle - have seen the speedy turnaround of the pub with 'a good soul'. Promising "some epic beers" - we spotted cases of Duvel, Vedett, Belgian beer by Liefmans, pale ale from Orval and Hackney's Five Points Brewing Company - and decent wines as well as food in the second week... see Dan Doherty on Instagram @dandoherty_ for the latest updates. 2018/06/19 Where:

Giving an honest account of bringing the Marylebone pub back to life via Instagram, fans of the chef - who first came to our attention when he was at Duck & Waffle - have seen the speedy turnaround of the pub with 'a good soul'. Promising "some epic beers" - we spotted cases of Duvel, Vedett, Belgian beer by Liefmans, pale ale from Orval and Hackney's Five Points Brewing Company - and decent wines as well as food in the second week... see Dan Doherty on Instagram @dandoherty_ for the latest updates.

The Hoxton Southwark

Opened 1st June 2018

The Hoxton Southwark Opened 1st June 2018 When they opened their first hotel in Shoreditch in 2006, The Hoxton paved the way for design-led budget hotels, showing disbelievers that you didn't have to pay for expensive mini-bars, and rip-off rates for phone calls or internet access. Its success has led to a third hotel in London, a 192-bedroom property on Blackfriars Road in Southwark, which is expected to open in 2018, joining existing Hoxton hotels in Shoreditch and Holborn. Occupying the lower six floors of a 14-storey building, Soho House - who already run The Hoxton Grill at the Hoxton Shoreditch and Chicken Shop and Hubbard & Bell at Hoxton Holborn - will operate a restaurant on the ground floor and a bar at the top. "It's conquered east and central London and now Hoxton is poised to take the south" ran an Evening Standard headline when planning permission was granted in 2015. Where The Hoxton goes, the hipsters follow. 2018/6/1 Where:

601 Queen's Rd

Opened spring 2018

601 Queen's Rd Opened spring 2018 Scandinavian design and a wraparound roof terrace make 601 Queen's Rd an attractive proposition for stylish drinks and all-day dining in Wimbledon village. On sunnier days, the magnificent roof terrace really comes into its own with the pergola providing a serene space to escape city life. Even when the sun isn't playing ball, the light filled bar, decorated with bespoke furniture, hand-picked artwork, ceramic tiles and flooded with natural light from the glass dome, has a seamless indoor-outdoor feel. Open day and night, you can dine alfresco on the roof terrace, grab drinks at the central bar or snuggle up in smaller, warmer spaces next to the cosy fireplace. The Darwin & Wallace group, set up in 2012 by Mel Marriott, previously brand manager of All Bar One, has recast the pub as a new neighbourhood bar - just look at No 197 Chiswick Fire Station , No 1 Duke Street and No 32 The Old Town, where they have their own bee farm - if you need convincing. 2018/05/29 Where:

Assembly Hotel London

Opened May 2018

Assembly Hotel London Opened May 2018 Smack bang in the middle of the West End with Soho and Covent Garden are right on the doorstep, the 121 room Assembly Hotel is a fun, affordable place to stay.

Sizes go from snug - perfect for one, fine for two as long as you really like each other - to d en, the most spacious room, complete with great views of London. It's the first i ndependent hospitality venture from Criterion Capital, the largest landowner between Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square who also own the Trocadero.

Brett Redman and Margaret Crow, the duo behind The Richmond in Hackney, have moved in with the Principal London to give us this seafood focused restaurant and oyster bar. In a contemporary space within the historic Grade II* listed hotel in Bloomsbury, Neptune is a 102-cover restaurant with a 30-seater bar. Based on an informal approach to the classic oyster bar, the display of oysters and shellfish selected from independent growers around the UK is at the centre of Neptune's dining room. Order towering seafood platters or choose from Brett's signature wood-fired cooking from the a la carte menu. Steamed-to-order whole Cornish crab with spaghetti, caviar, cucumber and absinthe daquiri cocktails as well as natural and low-intervention wines are served against a modern dining room with a graphic wooden floor, peach ceiling and artworks curated as a rolling exhibition.
 
 
 

The Duke of Richmond

Opened 24th May 2018

The Duke of Richmond Opened 24th May 2018 Chef/restaurateur Tom Oldroyd, owner of Oldroyd on Islington's Upper Street, sets up The Duke of Richmond public house and dining room in Hackney, in summer 2018. Originally opened in 1841 the pub - on corner of Queensbridge Road and Richmond Road and a 10 minute walk from Dalston Junction - is restored to its former glory as a neighbourhood public house and 30-cover dining room with an outside terrace - a semi-open kitchen and an open fire for cooking make this the ideal East London summer drinking spot. Serving different menus, both the pub and dining room menus have a strong French accent. Unlike Oldroyd, the dining room menu is not designed to be shared. Dishes come in starter and main course sizes, rather than small plates, so you might opt for lamb sweetbread and asparagus vol au vent followed by roast turbot and bearnaise. In the pub, favourites like Toulouse sausages with mash and roast shallots are served with a French slant. All-day pub roasts are set to compete with the best Sunday roasts in London. 2018/05/24 Where:

Mother Clucker Exmouth Market

Opened 18th May 2018

Mother Clucker Exmouth Market Opened 18th May 2018 After five years of frying chicken from trucks, gazebos and shipping containers all over London, Mother Clucker sets down roots at Exmouth Market with its first permanent fast food joint. This isn't your average high street chicken shop. As you'd expect from an outfit that's made a name for itself as one of the best street food traders in the city, they've gone to town with eye-catching decor, delicious drinks, banging music, melt-in-your-mouth chicken strips and fiery cajun fries, all washed down with craft beers courtesy of The Five Points Brewing Co. New Orleans inspired cocktails include humorously titled tipples Sex On The Rocks, Peeking Through The Grass Skirts and Kermit's Middle Leg. Fried chicken is, naturally, the focus with Mother Clucker Signature Strips, Cluckwich, black-eyed peas and enough hot sauce to melt steel on the menu. 2018/05/18 Where:

Andina Panaderia

Opened 15th May 2018

Andina Panaderia Opened 15th May 2018 Martin Morales, the chef, restaurateur and founder of Peruvian restaurants Ceviche, Andina and Casita Andina, is behind this Peruvian bakery and the restaurant next door. Located side by side at 155 Westbourne Grove, Andina Panaderia and Andina Picanteria pay homage to the female Andean chefs who have inspired Martin and his team since opening Ceviche in 2012. Led by head pastry chef, Ana Velasquez, Andina Panaderia specialises in slow-ferment baking with traditional sweet and savoury pastries and breads alongside hot dishes, lunchtime salads and all-day brunch-style dishes to eat in or take away. The magic begins in the early hours when Andina's bakers fill the shelves with Peruvian breads. Andean black mint and sweet potato sourdough, the traditional pan frances roll and chancay bread - a cinnamon-scented take on brioche - are among the choices. Sweet treats include the Pastel de Lucuma, an Andean spin on the Portuguese custard tart, and the purple corn chicha morada muffin. Enjoy with Peruvian coffee and teas or smoothies and juices. 2018/05/15 Where:

Andina Picanteria Opened 15th May 2018 Next door to his Andina Panaderia Martin Morales owns the 40 cover Andina Picanteria , a restaurant that's an ode to the Peruvian picanterias, the family-run, roadside restaurants in the Peruvian Andes. The menu, overseen by Chef Luca Depalo, is made up of small plates such as the Sivinche, an old take on ceviche, made with yellow fin tuna, trout roe and popped kiwicha, and a purple corn tamal with choclo corn succotash and sweet kale pesto. Bigger dishes include olluco potato locro, an Andean style stew with broad beans and roast pumpkin, listed alongside feasting dishes like the braised adobo pork leg and 80 day aged Hereford sirloin with red pepper and Amarillo chilli escabeche. Echoing the traditional picanteria, the open kitchen is lined with rough granite stone surfaces and there's a home style chef's table. Rustic oak chairs and tables contrast with velvet banquettes, walls are lined with bespoke, light oak lattices and Peruvian contemporary art fills the restaurant with vibrant splashes of colour. 2018/05/15 Where:

temper Covent Garden Opened 14th May 2018 Smoked meat aficionado Neil Rankin started out at Pitt Cue Co and Smokehouse but now he has his own mini chain of restaurants and he's written a book on the art of cooking meat. This third branch of temper in Covent Garden follows temper Soho (opened in 2016) and temper City (2017) and with it Neil has further cemented his reputation as one of the UK's leading barbecue chefs. The menu here focuses on cured meat pizza cooked in a wood-fired oven, ragu, vermouth and top-quality wines. Choose from t wo types of pizza: the rectangular 'Detroit pizza' with a focaccia-esque bottom and cheese crust; or the 'Bar pizza' which has an almost cracker-like thin base. Originally served at the counter, to be enjoyed with a drink or two, Neil has turned this idea on its head with top end toppings like the Wagyu Salami and the White Clam. Hearty ragus made using game, goat and pork are served with fresh bread or gnocchi in a dining room dominated by the central counter kitchen - a feature of all three temper restaurants - with a large wood-fired oven at one end and a bar at the other. 2018/05/14 Where:

Restaurant Story

Opened 8th May 2018

Restaurant Story Opened 8th May 2018 Launched in April 2013 when the Noma alumnus Tom Sellers was a youthful 25 years old, Restaurant Story was immediately dubbed "the new Dabbous" by food critic Marina O'Loughlin and earned a Michelin star just five months after opening. Reopened in May 2018 after a major interior refit, the redesign brought with it a new menu - not that you'll see it. Rather than being given a menu on arrival, guests get to choose from two menus and each table is treated individually, creating their own bespoke 'story'. Much of the service is done table-side, so your food is prepared in front of you and a drinks trolley does the rounds. With a first rate CV which includes working under Thomas Keller (Per Se), Rene Redzepi (Noma) and Tom Aikens at his Chelsea restaurant, it's not surprising that bookings can be hard to come by. 2018/05/08 Where:

Temperate House at Kew

Opened 5th May 2018

Temperate House at Kew Opened 5th May 2018 A Grade I listed building at Kew , the spectacular Temperate House is the largest Victorian glasshouse in the world. One of seven glasshouses at Kew, it's twice the size of the Palm House and houses an internationally important collection of temperate zone plants, including some of the rarest and most threatened. Following a five-year, £41 million renovation project - the biggest in its entire history - Kew reopens the building in May 2018, having replaced thousands of panes of glass, intricate ironwork and brought in 10,000 plants. Showing the importance of plants, 1,500 species are housed here, from temperate regions around the world - the Mediterranean, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, South and Central America, Asia, and Island floras. So you might find yourself in Mauritius where the only Dombeya mauritiana tree in cultivation grows, or in Nepal where Taxus wallichiana, a chemotherapy drug grows. A beacon of plant education and a real jewel in Kew's crown, set in the most tranquil corner of the world famous gardens. 2018/05/05 Where:

Skylight Rooftop

Opened 3rd May 2018

Skylight Rooftop Opened 3rd May 2018 From 3rd May 2018, Skylight returns with croquet lawn games, World Cup screenings and Wimbledon on the big screen on top of Tobacco Dock. The summer season brings live entertainment, croquet, one-off parties, resident DJ collectives, rooftop yoga and some scenic sunsets. Set on the top three levels of a former car park in Wapping, the 600 capacity Skylight has multiple bars, indoor and outdoor seating areas, and two street food stalls, all set against some of the finest views in the city - you can see The Shard, The Gherkin and the Walkie Talkie from here. Grab a seat on the upper level for prime views and extended sun rays before enjoying a spectacular show of yellows, oranges and pinks when the sun sets in the shadow of London's most famous buildings. Food wise, visitors can choose between burgers and souvlaki with Flip Side and Yiro taking over the kitchens and a new refreshing seasonal cocktail menu has been added alongside spritzes, pitchers, bubbly and wine. Book in for a game of croquet on the upper deck or, if the British weather isn't on your side, there's two playing areas inside. If fancy footwork is more your style, try your hand at the digital penalty shootout. 2018/05/03 Where:

Market Hall Fulham

Opened May 2018

Market Hall Fulham Opened May 2018 Taking the old Edwardian underground station at Fulham Broadway and turning it into a 200-seat food hall, Market Hall Fulham is a genius idea. Carefully choosing the food traders who go in there is the secret to its success. Yes, it's a lovely space - a glass ceiling lets natural daylight flood in and many original features remain - but it's the quality of the food that will keep you coming back. With ten traders at the launch edition, you can choose from healthy Hawaiian salads from Ahi Poke or dirty burgers from Butchies (who are also on the roof of John Lewis this summer). You're spoilt for choice with the first west London Yard Sale Pizza, Indian street food at Calcutta Canteen, Thai bites at Thima by Farang, Fanny's kebabs, Hot Box, Soft Serve Society ice cream, Press Coffee and Claude's Deli. Cocktails are served from the old 1880 ticket counter and beers are by interesting brewers like Cloudwater, Wild Beer Co and Siren Craft Brew. Fulham is the first of three Market Halls sites opening in 2018, an initiative by former property investor Andy Lewis-Pratt and Simon Anderson, the man behind Pitt Cue Co. Following Fulham, Market Halls open in Victoria where Pacha used to be in summer 2018 and - the giant flagship - Market Halls West End launches in autumn 2018 in the former BHS building, coinciding with the planned pedestrianisation of Oxford Circus. 2018/05/01 Where:

Homeslice, White City

Opened 19th April 2018

Homeslice, White City Opened 19th April 2018 Homeslice is the brainchild of Ry Jessup and brothers Mark and Alan Wogan, sons of Sir Terry Wogan so this, their fifth branch at Television Centre, is something of a homecoming. Renowned for its award-winning 20" pizzas for £20, also served individually by the slice, Homeslice began as a hand-built mobile wood-fired oven in 2011, with Ry popping-up at street food markets Kerb and Street Feast in East London.

Joining Soho House and Homeslice at Television Centre in White City, Bluebird, the famous Kings Road restaurant, adds a second branch to its name. Bluebird Cafe at Television Centre includes a cafe, bar, deli and - a major draw at the original - an outdoor terrace overlooking Television Centre's famous circular core. The cafe's colorful interior has been designed by David d'Almada's Sagrada and incorporates a mix 1960s styling inspired by Bridget Riley and Celia Birtwell and modern glamour. On Simon Gregory's modern European menu you'll find Calabrian nduja crusted yellow fin tuna with grilled onion and green sauce, and a Crispy Goosnargh duck and watercress salad. Bluebird classics such as Spiced Atlantic king prawns with lemon yoghurt and pistachio also feature, while award-winning Executive Pastry Chef, Roger Pizey, offers a sweet-toothed nod to the Kings Road with a Chelsea chocolate cheesecake and orange sorbet.

From the team behind the (now closed) Michelin-starred Ellory, Leroy is a wine bar and Bistro where the food is simple and the wine is superb. Owner and sommelier Ed Thaw has been working on a winemaking project in Campania with Michael Sager, Jackson Boxer and Stevie Parle and the 100 bin wine list is drawn from their favourite producers. Head chef Sam Kamienko returns to his time cooking at Le Verre Vole, evident in small plates of scallop 'en coquille' and confit chicken gizzards with lardons, escarole and a duck egg yolk. The 45 cover dining room is filled with old bistro chairs from France mixed with modern brass edged tables and a marble bar in a triangular space that's light and bright in the day and cosy at night.
 
 
 

Kanada-Ya Upper Street

Opened 22nd March 2018

Kanada-Ya Upper Street Opened 22nd March 2018 Specialising in authentic Tonkotsu ramen, Kanada-Ya serves noodles made on site with a special machine, imported from Japan.

Added to the noodles are tonkotsu broth, secret sauce (imported from the original restaurant, and hand-made by Mr. Kanada), wood ear fungus mushroom (kikurage), finely sliced spring onion, chashu pork belly and a sheet of nori. This Upper Street restaurant - the third branch of Kanada-Ya, joining branches in Piccadilly and Covent Garden - seats 55 over one floor where you can see the chefs at work in the open kitchen. 2018/03/22 Where:

Brat

Opened 17th March 2018

Brat Opened 17th March 2018 Tomos Parry, formerly of Kitty Fisher's , has named his first solo restaurant, Brat , after a colloquial term for 'turbot'. On Redchurch Street in Shoreditch, the restaurant draws on Tomos's Welsh heritage and his experiences visiting Getaria, a coastal town in the Basque country, well known for its barbecues. Using seasonal British produce, fresh ingredients are cooked on an open fire wood grill resulting in a menu of cedar wood sea trout, slow grilled red mullet, turbot and a dish loosely based on the Welsh cawl - offal hot pot served with laverbread and potatoes. An approachable wine list is by Keeling Andrew & Co, the wine import company set up by the founders of Noble Rot with wines from old cellars and sherry. Enter the first-floor restaurant via the original 1930s stairwell to the upstairs dining room, which retains many original features including art deco wood panelling and large steel frame windows. 2018/03/17 Where:

George's Bar

Opened 14th March 2018

George's Bar Opened 14th March 2018 Following a major redesign, the bar within The Gilbert Scott restaurant reopened as George's Bar in early 2018. Marcus Wareing's latest tribute to the building's original architect, Sir George Gilbert Scott, the bar sees the chef work in conjunction with David Collins Studio to transform the 19th century surroundings.

A two Michelin-starred chef, Marcus Wareing certainly understands ingredients, and working with bar manager, Dav Eames, he presents an exciting new menu inspired by chefs to celebrate the seasons. The menu offers a rotating cocktail of the month, with each one having a story to tell and its own history. The launch cocktail is the Bee Keeper, made with lavender infused Bombay Sapphire gin, Melfort Farm honey, sloe gin, lemon, hibiscus and elderflower. 2018/03/14 Where:

Accessed via a discreet doorway on Rupert Court and with just 11 seats at the kitchen bar, four at satellite tables, it's akin to a private dining experience, with chef Luke Robinson (who's come from the Corner Room, Town Hall Hotel and Bonnie Gull) in charge. The Southern European menu includes snacks and small plates of Jerusalem artichokes and salt cod beignet with taramasalata and almond. Larger plates present dishes of tagliatelle with black truffle butter and presa Iberica with padron pepper, followed by just one or two desserts and La Fromagerie cheeses.

Amber

Opened 31st January 2018

Amber Opened 31st January 2018 Tucked away behind the Curzon in Goodman's Fields, Amber is an all-day Middle Eastern and Mediterranean restaurant serving fresh, healthy salads, Pide (boat-shaped flatbread) and a daily changing hot tray bake. You get a warm welcome and a choice of cold salads like beetroot and goat's cheese, served against a backdrop of pale wood, concrete walls and hanging plants. Set up by Murat Kilic and Pierre Aprin, Amber gets its name from the ancient amber trade route which ran from the North and Baltic coasts to the Mediterranean Sea and these areas influence the cooking too. Miso glazed aubergine is a stand out dish among a choice of five salads, served as sides to mains of salmon and chicken chop. In the evening, the place has a completely different feel. The lights go down, the candles come out and glazed lamb shoulder and whole trout are among the more sophisticated main course options. The cooking is accomplished and you can even see the chefs at work in the open kitchen so rest assured it's all freshly made on the spot. Spot on. 2018/01/31 Where:

Tucked away behind the Curzon in Goodman's Fields, Amber is an all-day Middle Eastern and Mediterranean restaurant serving fresh, healthy salads, Pide (boat-shaped flatbread) and a daily changing hot tray bake. You get a warm welcome and a choice of cold salads like beetroot and goat's cheese, served against a backdrop of pale wood, concrete walls and hanging plants. Set up by Murat Kilic and Pierre Aprin, Amber gets its name from the ancient amber trade route which ran from the North and Baltic coasts to the Mediterranean Sea and these areas influence the cooking too. Miso glazed aubergine is a stand out dish among a choice of five salads, served as sides to mains of salmon and chicken chop. In the evening, the place has a completely different feel. The lights go down, the candles come out and glazed lamb shoulder and whole trout are among the more sophisticated main course options. The cooking is accomplished and you can even see the chefs at work in the open kitchen so rest assured it's all freshly made on the spot. Spot on.
 
 
 

L'Ami Malo

Opened 29th January 2018

L'Ami Malo Opened 29th January 2018 Near Spitalfields Market, on Artillery Passage, L'Ami Malo combines a chic creperie with a French speakeasy bar. With vintage French linen, wooden barstools, rustic tableware and marble-topped tables, the place has a warm but stripped-back feel. A modern interpretation of a classic creperie, French owners Emilien Lesourd and Vincent Couvreur, along with Breton-born head chef Williams Guillemot, upgrade the humble galette by using buckwheat - known for its healthy, gluten-free properties. As well as tried and tested favourites - pancakes topped with confit duck leg, sausage or smoked ham - savoury galettes are given an Asian twist, delivered in 'maki'-style rolls, with Bayonne ham with Comté cheese, tomato tartare, hazelnuts and spinach as well as smoked salmon and avocado. Sweet crepes are, naturally, on the menu too, from classic lemon and sugar to apple compote, butter sauce and salted caramel. Tucked away at the back of the restaurant and with its own entrance is Le Moulin, with calvados cocktails and craft ciders from Brittany and Normandy a speciality at the bar. 2018/01/29 Where:

Frame Hammersmith

Opened 26th January 2018

Frame Hammersmith Opened 26th January 2018 Putting the fun into fitness, Frame puts you through your paces with mini-trampolines and dance classes under a disco ball but they also offer more serious workouts like power yoga and reformer pilates. It all started in 2009 in Shoreditch when Pip Black and Joan Murphy opened the first Frame fitness studio aiming to create a more positive approach to health and fitness. Nine years on and their Frame family is growing with two new studios added in January 2018, in Hammersmith and Fitrovia, bringing the total to six Frame studios in the city. Unlike a regular gym membership you're not tied into a contract and it's all about the classes which vary from sweat inducing cardio to 'ass and abs' toning plus they're all available as drop in and pay-as-you-go. The varied timetable means you can get a Frame Card and can rock up at a time that suits whatever your job, lifestyle or plans for the day. Sign up for membership and you can work out at any Frame studio - in Shoreditch, Queens Park, Kings Cross, Victoria, Hammersmith or Fitzrovia. 2018/01/26 Where:

The Coach, Clerkenwell

Opened 20th January 2018

The Coach, Clerkenwell Opened 20th January 2018 A landmark public house in Clerkenwell since 1790, The Coach has been given a new lease of life in January 2018 with a refurb, the result of an exciting collaboration between chef Henry Harris (formerly of Racine ) and James McCulloch ( The Harcourt and Three Cranes). Henry's signature blend of French and British cuisine is evident in a menu that covers breakfast to dinner via lunch and bar snacks. The pub's renovation pays tribute to its Dickensian heritage as well as the neighbourhood's reputation as a creative hub. Floor to ceiling glass floods the space with light, while the 'bear garden' - once used for animal fights - is festooned with lights and arched mirrors covered by ivy and shrubbery. That's not all, the team is also turning Maida Vale's Truscott Arms into the Hero of Maida and taking on Three Cranes in the City. 2018/01/20 Where:

Claw Carnaby Opened 12th January 2018 It popped up at London markets and in a shipping container on Finsbury Avenue Square but Claw Carnaby is the first bricks and mortar site for the seafood specialist, adding meat and vegetarian options to the menu. When he first started back in 2015, founder Fabian Clark discovered that Britain exported approximately 80 per cent of its crab to the rest of Europe and Asia. In an attempt to change perceptions of fish as an expensive luxury, dishes on the reasonably priced menu at this 50-seat restaurant include bacon and scallop muffin, trout poke and pork stuffed squid, all made with quality seafood from the coast of Britain. The team has included some of their much-loved, cult dishes - the Claw Crab Roll, Bacon & Scallop Muffin, and Claw's signature Lobster Roll. It's not just about fish, meat lovers are also catered for with pork stuffed squid and fried chicken and caviar, washed down with coastal cocktails, craft beer and soft drinks. 2018/01/12 Where:

Eric Estorick (1913-93), American sociologist and writer, began collecting works of art when he came to live in England after World War II. He had a number of Hollywood clients including Lauren Bacall, Burt Lancaster and Billy Wilder and in 1960 founded the Grosvenor Gallery in London. This Georgian villa also hosts temporary exhibitions, educational events and runs an art library. There is a well stocked gallery shop, while the garden caf is a great place for alfresco lunches in the summer. 2018/01/1 Where:
