Freak SceneFreak Scene, the pan-Asian pop-up by chef Scott Hallsworth that took Clerkenwell by storm last year, moves to Soho and this time it's for good. Expect to find miso grilled black cod taco on the menu at this permanent restaurant from the chef and author of Junk Food Japan, previously head chef at Nobu London for six years. Scott then opened Nobu Melbourne before founding Kurobuta in London which he left in May 2017. At Freak Scene in Soho Scott brings new additions to his "Insanely delicious Japanese delicacies" (Jay Rayner) including a foie gras croissant with star anise jus and crispy nori cone with tea-smoked beef fillet, pickled onions and wasabi cream, along with Fermented Thai sausages and Pumpkin som tam with pomegranate. Sit on stools around the concrete bar and open kitchen, or grab a spot at the ledge circling the edge of the restaurant where replays of Japanese gameshow Takeshi's Castle are projected onto the wall. In the summer months, outside tables provide the perfect Soho spot to grab some rays.
