Noble Rot have unveiled their new restaurant in Soho, taking over what used to be The Gay Hussar. Will it live up to the louche charm of the original? We went along for a preview dinner.
If you missed out on dining with Chotto Matte in August during the Eat Out To Help Out scheme, fear not, they have extended their offer and you have two more weeks to come and dine on their terrace and get a taste of Chotto before they say goodbye to summer.
Offer:50% off food up to £10
Where: 11 - 13 Frith St, Soho, London W1D
You know things are getting back to a kind of normal when special collaborations appear in restaurants again - and this one should make a trip to Soho or Covent Garden well worth it.
This new creation is from grime artist Big Zuu, who is also a self-taught chef and made his culinary name with a show on Dave, Big Zuu’s Big Eats, where he heads all over the country cooking for comedians. He filmed one of the
Truffle have appeared on the South Bank, at Seven Dials and as a burger kit. Now they're taking their very truffley burgers to Soho for their first permanent spot.
A truly iconic Soho restaurant is revived by the team behind Noble Rot who are promising to be custodians of its history but bring the menu fully into the 21st century.
It used to be known as TRADE, the members' bar for people in the hospitality business, but now it's being replaced by The Black Book, a new wine bar that's open to all of Soho.
The team running things is still the same - Gearoid Devaney and Xavier Rousset (Blandford Comptoir), and will focus "rare and interesting" wines alongside a brasserie-style menu. So wines by the glass will
Now properly back in business, Soho's Sun and 13 Cantons is continuing its series of very interesting pop-ups (they hosted Darjeeling Express before Asma Khan opened their first restaurant) with its next - Tendril. This was actually due to start in late March but, well we all know what happened then. So now things are ready to properly kick off again.
It comes from Rishim Sachdeva, previously at Chiltern Firehouse, Almeida and The Dairy
Now there's a new way to start the weekend in London - with fresh waffles and bellinis at the never-knowingly-understated Bob Bob Ricard...
There are two places you can always guarantee queues outside in London - Dishoom and The Breakfast Club. Now the latter, having tied up the breakfast scene, are getting into the late-night market by opening Saint Elmo's (fans of John Hughes movies will get the reference).
Saint Elmo’s Late-Night Sandwich Bar will take over their Berwick Street Cafe every day from 5pm. As the name suggests it'll serve up a range of sandwiches which they
After pop-ups and residencies across London, Club Mexicana are bringing their vegan Mexican food to Kingly Court.
Getting into the delivery business with something that looks pretty special is Victor Garvey's Californian restaurant in Soho, SOLA. That restaurant is mainly all about its tasting menus, so the delivery service is trying to get as close to that as possible - and it's doing that with BENTŌ by SOLA.
There will be two boxes - the five-course version (£69) or the 10-course tasting menu (£109) - all presented in a
Many of the big communal dining spaces like Market Halls and Arcade Food Theatre are on ice at the moment - but that hasn't stopped TA TA Eatery. While Arcade is closed they've taken themselves down the road to a pop-up in Soho.
There you'll be able to grab yourself what is often billed as one of the best sandwiches in London - the mighty Iberian Katsu Sando. If you're katsu sando'd out, they'll also have kimchi burgers and fries which you can have with sparkling
There may be a lot of restaurants reopening at the moment - but we're also seeing brand new additions to the scene. One of them is Wingmans who, as you might guess from the name, specialise in gourmet chicken wings.
Until now, they've had a restaurant in Kilburn (launched after a series of pop-ups and residencies) and a hatch in Shoreditch but their new opening is a much bigger space in Soho (taking over
Earlier this summer, it looked as though a longstanding part of Soho society was about to become another victim of the lockdown. Balans - a part of Soho since 1987, and a particular favourite of the area's LGBT community, put all of its restaurant sites on the market.
The announcement was met with horror by its fans, many of which counted on somewhere like Balans to be open in the wee small hours post-clubbing when they most needed sustenance.
While there aren't that many people working in central London during the lockdown, other than key workers, some great restaurants are still delivering to those living in the centre of town. We round up the best.
