    Sabor Hamburger

    They've already been open as an alfresco restaurant for the past few weeks - but now Sabor is getting ready to throw open the doors to the actual restaurant.

    The much-loved (and Michelin-starred) Spanish restaurant by Nieves Barragan Mohacho and Jose Etura will be opening both floors, but the top floor El Asador is seeing the most changes. Before, that was all about communal dining which, for the near future at least, is not on the cards. So that's

    Some London restaurants will clearly need more time to prepare for reopening, particularly when so much of their offering includes counter dining which falls way short of even the new 1m plus rule.

    But while they work out their plans some, like Mayfair's Sabor, have ploughed ahead with offerings to bring their restaurants to your home instead.

They'll be on both Deliveroo and Supper, where they'll have a menu featuring Nobu classics. That means yes, you can get their signature dish, Black Cod Miso delivered - but it will cost you £42.50.
