Last year, Mãos in Shoreditch won a coveted Michelin star, but just a few months later one of its founders Nuno Mendes, announced that he was leaving. Since then, even more has changed with the very notion of close communal dining around a single table (a signature of Maos) knocked to the kerb in the era of social distancing.
Now there's a maximum of eight diners allowed, with four tables of two replacing
Their Soho venue has been closed throughout the lockdown but now that Bar Swift (ranked 41 on the 50 Best Bars in the World list last year) are back, they're already getting ready to open a second bar in Shoreditch (where Floripa used to be).
This venue will be an all-day affair, opening at 8am on weekdays. Of course, you won't be able to pick up a cocktail then, so they'll shift to coffee and brunch dishes in the mornings. There will be Neal's
We've been without Tomos Parry's excellent Brat restaurant for a few months - but now it's returning in not one but three different incarnations.
First up is the Brat x Climpson’s Arch residency which sees Parry going back to his roots as he had previously been in the kitchen there from 2013-2015. Brat will be there all summer
Trying to work out what you fancy when it comes to food delivery in Shoreditch? We're here to help you choose some of the best.
Big Mamma has had two huge hits with Gloria and Circolo Popolare. But how will their very extra approach translate to delivery? We find out.
News of Alex Craciun's new pop-up managed to escape us last week, but his Nori to Go pop-up continues into next weekend, serving out very impressive temaki from Smokestak in Shoreditch.
Cracuin was executive chef at Jason Atherton's Sosharu and has been developing his Nori to Go takeout boxes over the past few weeks and they all look quite amazing. You'll get a set of five for £20 and
Over the past few weeks, we've seen the return of restaurants to London (albeit in collection or delivery form) turn from a slow trickle into something of a torrent. And as restaurants have worked out what they're able to do - a couple of distinct camps are appearing. Either they try to deliver as close to the restaurant experience as possible - or they pivot to something else during the lockdown.
They've already opened Smokestak for Saturday delivery/pickup - now it's the time of David Carter and Chris Leach's Manteca. However, this isn't Manteca served from their Soho restaurant - instead, the team has headed east and are also using Smokestak as a base
They may not be back completely, but Smokestak will be returning every Saturday for the next few weeks and they're doing it in style. After a trial run last Saturday, they'll be back every week with a menu that sees them going back to basics with old-school barbecue action.
Here's what's on the menu. The first four meats are by the 100g and we want all of it, frankly.
The Lockdown isn't stopping new restaurants from starting up in London, as seen by the latest addition to the Coqfighter family. Best known for their super, fried chicken in Soho and Shoreditch (both still delivering now) they've decided to expand into beef - with the launch of Goodburger (nope - not related to the movie).
Here's what you can order right now if you're in Uber Eats range from Shoreditch (they're currently
Over the past year and a bit, the Big Mamma restaurants Gloria and Circolo Poplare have become huge hits in London. But while it might be a little time before everyone packs into a restaurant like their massive Fitzrovia outpost, that doesn't mean that you can't have a little piece of Big Mamma to take home.
During lockdown, both restaurants are being turned into a mix of deli and pizzeria as a
If you've been keeping track of our page that covers how restaurants are changing as a result of Coronavirus, you'll have seen - where possible - a great shift towards takeaway and delivery.
Latest to reveal full details of their plans are Brat, one of our
London's vegan burger scene couldn't be more enticing at the moment, particularly with the launch this week of a rather special new burger in Shoreditch.
From tomorrow, Halo Burger will be selling what they say is "the UK’s first-ever vegan katsu burger". They've teamed up with Nanban owner and MasterChef winner Tim Anderson for this one-month special, which will be available at their new Shoreditch spot.
It's made with a panko crispy
You're probably aware by now that it's a leap year so that means there's one extra day before we get to March. There certainly are a few events making use of the extra day - this Saturday - but this is the one that struck us the most.
Nobu Hotel Shoreditch's "supper bar" Nami are using the day to launch their brand new Flaming Nami Burger. As you can see from the pic above - it's exactly as it sounds.
It may be hard to believe it, but the Kelis album Kaleidoscope, with its uber-hit Milkshake, is 20 years old this year. To celebrate some of us feeling very old indeed, Deliveroo is teaming up with Kelis herself to launch The Yard which - yes - will be serving milkshakes.
Kelis herself will be popping up in London, the day after her show at the Roundhouse, mixing some of the milkshakes herself. It's
