So there was us thinking that London's Indian restaurant scene was at peak excitement with the opening this Autumn of Kahani, Kricket White City and the new Gunpowder at Tower Bridge not to mention the imminent openings of Kutir, Farzi Cafe and London Jukebox.
But then we heard about what was going on at Tamarind Mayfair. The Mayfair spot closed its doors eight months ago for a major refit. When it reopens next month it'll not only have a swish
This Mykonos-inspired restaurant is a five-storey affair in Mayfair, micing restaurant, bar and private club. And it has what sounds like a pretty great roof terrace too.
Sometimes we get a press release here at Hot Dinners where the only correct response is "I can't even...". That's firmly the category into which today's story from Burger & Lobster falls.
They've installed a £3,000 four poster gold bed in their Soho restaurant. And for two weeks Londoners can book a three-course caviar and lobster dinner on the bed, which they eat while reclining in silk pyjamas.
The meal kicks off with Veuve Cliquot and
(Updated 11/10/18 with more images and interviews) There's a wealth of talent behind this modern grill room opening up on Park Lane - with Hawksmoor's Richard Turner and wine writer Fiona Beckett on the dream team.
Dinner, aperitivo, art and Balearic DJs arrive on the ever-changing Mayfair restaurant scene from Ibiza.

We're hearing strong rumours that changes are afoot at Claridge's. A reader (who's also in the industry) got in touch to tell us that Fera is expected to close at the end of the year. And what or rather who is being tipped to replace it is what's got us all excited.
The rumour mill currently has as the front-runner Daniel Humm, who's the chef behind New York restaurants Eleven Madison Park and NoMad. EMP is currently number four (and a previous
If you're a fan of Mercato Metropolitano in Elephant and Castle, you'll be very pleased indeed to learn that they're about to open a second market - Mercato Mayfair.
This will see them taking over a former church, the Grade I listed St Mark's (just off Oxford Street) which has just been through a big new £5 mil restoration courtesy of Grosvenor. So it should look very, very
Head to this classic Mayfair restaurant for a top Spanish deal this Autumn.
CUT have had their fair share of impressive pop-ups, and now they've managed to lure over hugely influential chef Francis Mallmann to London. The Argentinean chef (probably Argentina's most famous chef) will be taking over CUT at 45 Park Lane (Wolfgang Puck's restaurant) for three nights only in October.
On the menu will be:
If you're after a new way to start the day, or need something a bit different to try the next time you have a breakfast meeting, how about booking the breakfast at Gazelle which starts service in two weeks?
From 8am until 11am, Gazelle morning menu features dishes every bit as unusual as their lunch and dinner offering. So you're unlikely to find smashed avo and poached eggs on sourdough here.
It may be one of London's oldest restaurants, but there's a new influence in the kitchen at the Guinea Grill.
Chef Nathan Richardson and the Guinea's GM Oisin Rogers go way back - they worked together first at the Ship in Wandsworth and then at Rogers' last place, The Canonbury Tavern in Islington.
After a short stay down under, opening up a restaurant in Brisbane, Nathan's now back in London and has taken on the position of Head Chef at The Guinea.
From weekend brunches to shopping lunches and ciccheti on the terrace, Richard Caring's hoping to bring a bit of La Dolce Vita to just off Oxford Street.
It wouldn't be right to end National Afternoon Tea Week without at least trying something served on china and accompanied by a lovely pot of Darjeeling. So Hot Dinners headed off to The Beaumont yesterday to check out their latest wheeze.
As you might expect from anywhere run by Messrs Corbin & King, attention to detail is all. And the new cake trolley that debuted a few weeks ago at this Mayfair hotel is totally on point.
After a successful pop-up a few years ago, Albert Adrià is coming back to London for good with an all-dessert restaurant in the swanky Hotel Cafe Royal.
