  • Hawksmoor have a new bar snack - The steak slice

    hinster 700

    Let's hope you've eaten before you cast your eyes on this wondrous-looking item. This, my friends, is their Steak Slice - a meat pasty that knocks the original pastry item that inspired it into a distant cocked hat.

    It's available at all Hawksmoor bars, but only for the month of November. To buy one costs £20 and it consists of a 200g 35-day-aged rare-breed ribeye, slow-braised with red

  • Knightsbridge's Hyde Bar launches a luxe burger and whisky menu

    hyde bar

    Not to be outdone by London's, how shall we put it, more casual burger establishments, The Hyde Bar at The Park Tower Knightsbridge has joined the fray with a new range of luxe burgers.

    So if you're after something totally OTT - how about The Luxury Collection - featuring Wagyu beef with Vermont white cheddar in a gold leaf bun, or perhaps The Perigourdine with Angus beef, duck foie gras, Armagnac mayo and potato black truffle bun? They're not cheap mind, ranging

  • Gelupo launch a Michelin gelato range with Roux, Koffmann and more


    We're pretty partial to a scoop or two of Gelupo ice-cream so we're quite taken with their latest wheeze. To tie in with the launch of the new Michelin guide they've come up with a special collaboration - seven gelato collaborations with seven Michelin-starred chefs. Each flavour ties in with the kind of dishes you'd find at their restaurants. And they are:

    • ‘Dr Henderson’ (an unusual blend of Fernet-Branca and crème de menthe) from Fergus
  • The huge Oklava Sunday Feast headlines their own kebabs

    The Oklava Sunday Feast will certainly fill you up this weekend

    We do like the sound of the new Sunday special at Shoreditch's Oklava. Chef Selin Kiazim is putting on a, frankly huge, feast that is rounded off by some special kebabs. Apparently, the Kebab, or ‘kebap’, is something that Selin always did with her family on Sundays.  And its inspiration is drawn directly from childhood holidays in Cyprus, where her family would all get round the table and enjoy this spread, which

  • London restaurants sign up for Goatober


    If the idea of Go Sober for October doesn't sound too enticing, here's another month-long enterprise that might be more your thing. Goatober will be a month long celebration of Britain's dairy billy goat meat industry. Inspired by the US version where dishes are served up in restaurants like Gramercy Tavern, Babbo, Spotted Pig and Bar Boulud, it's been pushed in Britain by James Whetlor from Cabrito Goat Meat and they've got an impressive list of restaurants taking

  • Gizzi Erskine launches a chicken satay dish at LEON


    Here's an easy prediction. The new tie-up between fast food chain LEON and Gizzi Erskine will be a runaway success. Launching next week, the chef and food writer Gizzi will showcase the dish she created - the Chicken Satay Salad costs £6.45. It was inspired by her cookbook Gizzi's Healthy Appetite and consists of sweet potato, carrot and daikon spiralised salad, topped with LEON’s chargrilled chicken and finished with a punchy pot of satay sauce with a sprinkling of

  • Where to watch, eat and drink the Rio Olympics in London this summer

    pizap.com14700771330311We've handed over the baton to Rio, so it's time to sit back and enjoy the Olympics from a restaurant beside the Olympic stadium rather than in it. Here's what London's restaurants and bars are doing for it

  • Head to CAUnival this August for a special charity DJ BBQ burger


    We love a good cause here at Hot Dinners and no cause is closer to our hearts than Action Against Hunger.

    The summer special, illustrated by the cartoon-style graphics, is on offer every Wednesday and Thursday throughout July and August, at £15 for two courses.

  • ROKA Charlotte Street launches a kaiseki cocktail pairing menu


    We've long had wine pairing and then there was beer pairing - now London is seeing a new-ish trend for restaurants to pair food with cocktails. We recently tried the cocktail pairing menu at the Clove Club Bar. And now there's another intriguing combination in Fitzrovia with Rokas Shochu launching a Kaiseki Cocktail Pairing Menu next week.

    The seven course menu of small dishes has been worked on by the ches in conjunction with the bar team. Diners

  • Salon Brixton launches an extended experience at dinner


    Chef Nicholas Balfe has been turning out some stunning food at his Salon restaurant in Brixton since opening in 2012 - and we're excited to hear about the new 'extended experience' he's come up with for the dinner service.

    The six course set menu, with some very inventive snacks thrown in too, will change frequently: on the night we went it was full of truly

  • Royal Garden Hotel brings out 1966 anniversary Bobby Moore menu

    bobby moore menu

    It's been fifty long years since England lifted up the World Cup. But rather than dwell on how many opportunities we've had (and failed) to recapture the cup, how about eating out to commemorate the glorious game instead?

    Back in 1966 The Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington was the official host of Bobby Moore's winning World Cup team. Google it and you'll see some frankly amazing shots of the hotel completely mobbed as the team come out to show off
