The Chiswick Cinema

Opens late 2020

The Chiswick Cinema Opens late 2020 The Chiswick Cinema opens in late 2020. Hard to believe but the good people of Chiswick haven't had a local cinema since the 1930s. All that will change when The Chiswick Cinema opens, screening current releases and family films on the High Road where Rambert Dance Company used to be. The luxury cinema houses five screens, a bar and kiosk on the ground floor as well as a private members' bar above and offers comfortable seating and easy access. The project is overseen by Lyn Goleby, co-founder and former managing director of Picturehouse cinemas who brings with her twenty-five years' experience in the industry. Some trivia for film fans: Chiswick's Electric Cinema and Cinema Royal - now The Old Cinema antiques shop - both closed in 1933. Eighty-seven years on, the moving pictures are making a comeback. 2020/12/01 Where:

The NoMad Hotel London

Opened summer 2020

The NoMad Hotel London Opened summer 2020 Well known in the States for their stylish hotels, this is the first NoMad outside America. A partnership between Sydell Group and investment firm BTC, the NoMad London takes up residence in the historic, grade II-listed Bow Street Magistrates' Court and Police Station from summer 2020. Opposite the Royal Opera House, in the heart of Covent Garden, the 19th century building has been transformed into a 91 room hotel with much of the original architectural features preserved and woven into design. The building's original Magistrates' Courtroom has been reimagined as a space for private events and gatherings while a museum with rotating exhibitions reveals the history of the Metropolitan Police Force. A collaboration with New York-based interior design firm Roman and Williams, the design means "most bedrooms have soaring ceiling heights... softened with a theatrical drop of heavy textile curtains" (Wallpaper) while wallhangings have been sourced from both New York and London. Public areas include a casual 'booth food' restaurant, a signature library space and a 100-capacity function room in the former courtroom as well as a basement lounge bar in the old coal vaults. As with existing NoMads, all food will be directed by restaurateur Will Guidara and Michelin-starred chef Daniel Humm of three Michelin-starred Eleven Madison Park in New York who are also responsible for Claridge's main restaurant. 2020/07/15 Where:

Owned by Edwardian Hotels - the group behind the development of The May Fair hotel - it's described as the world's first 'super boutique' hotel . Boutique in feel yet huge in scale, The Londoner has 350 rooms including 15 suites, a spectacular tower penthouse with panoramic views, state-of-the-art ballroom for over 850 guests as well as subterranean spa. Among the six food and drink options are a tavern, alfresco dining on the ground floor and a top floor Japanese lounge bar with a rooftop terrace and - a rarity in London - open fire pit. The contemporary interiors are by Yabu Pushelberg, the designers behind the Four Seasons hotel in Downtown New York, with rooms featuring floor to ceiling windows and finishings offset by curated artworks and the latest technology.

The Little Orange Door

Opened Summer 2020

The Little Orange Door Opened Summer 2020 From the infamous flatmates behind The Little Yellow Door in Notting Hill comes The Little Orange Door in Clapham. Following the same theme as the original, the concept is based around a fictional flat share between friends who love to throw a good house party. This isn't just any house party though - guests can expect creative cocktails in a botanical conservatory, al fresco brunch on the garden inspired terrace and evening entertainment in the form of retro console games in the library and live music and DJs until the early hours. Eclectic trinkets, a fancy dress box and '90s nostalgia add a playful touch while comfy sofas set around a fireplace and an open kitchen filled with cookery books will make guests feel right at home. What's more, a concealed Bedouin-inspired snug draped in fabrics is perhaps Clapham's best kept secret. Let the flatmates know you're coming in advance via Whatsapp or email. 2020/06/06 Where:

KOL

Opened May 2020

KOL Opened May 2020 The debut restaurant from Santiago Lastra is getting more than its share of press attention, well before it opens, and we can see why. Rene Redzepi's righthand man for the Noma Mexico pop-up, Santiago recently he won the chef category at the Young British Food & Drink Awards. At his hotly anticipated debut restaurant KOL, a two-storey space located in Marylebone's picturesque Seymour Street, he cooks modern Mexican dishes like langoustine tacos with sea buckthorn, lamb leg tostada cured in gooseberries with walnut oil and fermented chilis, and Kolrabi ceviche, followed by dessert of tamal served with corn-husk ice-cream. The restaurant's name comes from the Spanish word for cabbage (col) and hints at Santiago's approach to cooking - making even the simplest things extraordinary by treating them with care and attention. A tortilla station - complete with a traditional comal grill - and a specialist mezcal bar are set aside for these Mexican specialities. Adjacent to the bar, the 20-cover chef's table gives private dining customers a prime view through large windows onto the restaurant's second kitchen. Nordic minimalism combines with homely interiors to reflect the vibrant colour palate of rural Mexican where Santiago has spent time refining his craft. 2020/05/15 Where:

Bandra Bhai

Opened May 2020 2020

Bandra Bhai Opened May 2020 2020 Sitting below regional Indian restaurant Pali Hill is its sister bar Bandra Bhai, an underground drinking den inspired by the illicit hangouts that were prolific in India during the 1990s. During this period the nation had a closed economy where imported goods were rare and local items were limited. As a result, a ring of smugglers would import and deal illicit goods with everything from gold watches to foreign liquor available on the black market. Bandra Bhai pays homage to this period with a design created in the guise of a front for such dodgy dealings. Guests must enter through a hidden doorway in the basement and once inside they'll be greeted with kitsch upholstery, rich velvets and gaudy art. A menu of contemporary cocktails references the tales of India with Bollywood movies The Don and Disco Dancer forming inspiration. 2020/05/01 Where:

Eggslut Fitzrovia

Opened spring 2020

Eggslut Fitzrovia Opened spring 2020 Following the success of Eggslut in Notting Hill - where they serve over 600 eggs a day - the free range cafe for egg lovers launches a second site, this time in Fitzrovia. Signature dishes on the menu - which is entirely dedicated to eggs - make a return including the Gaucho, with seared wagyu tri-tip steak, and the Fairfax - soft scrambled eggs and chives in a warm Bread Ahead brioche bun . The key to their success is in the quality of the eggs - they only use Clarence Court Burford Browns - and the restaurant has no freezers with all dishes cooked fresh to order for optimum ooziness in the egg sandwiches. The opening comes as we learn that Brits are eating a record numbers of eggs - 6.6 billion eggs in 2019; that's a 50 per cent increase in the last ten years - and Eggslut is here to help. With options like The Slut, made from a coddled egg on top of a smooth potato puree, it's clear to see how founder Alvin Cailan first came up with the idea as a chef meal while working in a two Michelin star restaurant. 2020/04/15 Where:

Opened April 2020

The Cheese Barge Opened April 2020 World Cheese Awards judge Mathew Carver is the brains behind The Cheese Truck, The Cheese Bar in Camden Stables Market and the man who invented the world's first cheese conveyor belt - Pick & Cheese. With The Cheese Barge he's come up with another brie-llant idea - serving the best of British cheese on a double-decker boat, moored on the Grand Union Canal at Paddington Central. Carefully crafted in Somerset, the barge takes cues from the Electa bookstore in Venice, with a beautiful copper 'veil' acting as an awning for the 40 cover lower deck dining room. The cheese-y menu focuses on seasonal dishes made with British cheeses including Devils on Horseback where medjool dates are stuffed with Stilton and wrapped in bacon. Head chef Reagan Ellenbroek has worked with executive chef Ross Keeling to give us fried Quicke's Cheddar curds, curried and tossed in chilli honey as well as a cured sausage created in collaboration with Crown & Queue. Out on the upper deck, seating provides the perfect spot for a glass of wine, cheese and charcuterie in the open air. 2020/04/15 Where:

Maison Francois

Opened spring 2020

Maison Francois Opened spring 2020 Head chef Matthew Ryle, a Masterchef: The Professionals finalist who honed his classical cooking skills at The Dorchester, has teamed up Francois O'Neill to give us Maison Francois. Restaurants are in the blood for Francois. His father Hugh O'Neill co-founded Brasserie St. Quentin in 1980 with his cousin Quentin Crewe, who was the restaurant critic at the Evening Standard for close to 20 years. With Ed Wyand (previously head maitre d' at Scott's) heading up the front of house team, the trio's St James's restaurant pays homage to the grand brasseries of Paris, Lyon and Alsace with rustic house terrines, homemade saucisson and classics like Reblochon gougeres and oeufs mimosa.

Six by Nico

Opened spring 2020

Six by Nico Opened spring 2020 Scottish-Italian chef, Nico Simeone, offers an inventive approach to the tasting menu. At Six by Nico he serves an entirely new six course tasting menu every six weeks and never serve the same menu twice. The Charlotte Street restaurant is the first London project from Nico and his seventh in the UK. Born in Glasgow to Italian parents, his inspiration comes from anywhere - places, memories and ideas - with themes to date including Childhood, Guilty Pleasures, Catalonia and Thai Street Food which, in true Six by Nico style, are only unveiled two weeks before the menu is first served. Bombas with jamon, smoked tomato compote and aioli, butternut squash spring rolls with Thai green sauce and deep-fried Mars bar with caramelia chocolate mousse are just some examples of typical dishes. With a focus on fine dining at an affordable price, the six courses are served in the 80-cover space which has a minimalist yet warm setting, juxtaposing exposed pipes and industrial elements with an inviting theatrical open kitchen. 2020/04/01 Where:

Wildflower by Adrian Martin

Opened 18th March 2020

Wildflower by Adrian Martin Opened 18th March 2020 Opening within Camden's eco Buck Street Market, Wildflower is the debut establishment from Irish chef Adrian Martin. The market uses 88 recycled shipping containers to house a number of independent businesses, and Wildflower is the first fine dining restaurant in London housed in a shipping container. Bringing his experience from renowned restaurant MacNean House and Michelin-starred Bon Appetite, Adrian hopes to redefine the fine dining concept with an affordable, sustainable experience. A seasonal menu of Irish dishes champions foraged ingredients while herbs and shoots are sourced from the market's communal Garden Terrace. Additionally, any food waste is composted and used to generate energy used to produce electricity for the market. Dishes such as onion and bacon bread and scallop with smoked burdock have been created with simplicity in mind allowing one or two ingredients to really sing. 2020/03/18 Where:

Opened 11th March 2020

Buck Street Market Opened 11th March 2020 Camden's Buck Street Market, the first of Camden's markets if you head up the high street from Camden Town Tube Station, has undergone a reinvention, with recycled shipping containers similar to those used at Boxpark and Pop Brixton.

Among twenty-six sustainable food brands, all of which have vegan or vegetarian options on their menus, are Miguel Barclay, famous for his One Pound Meals, who's opening New York style pizzeria Miguel's Pizza, and 28-year-old Irish chef Adrian Martin with Wildflower, his debut fine dining restaurant focusing on foraged food and seasonal menus. Alongside the food offering are over fifty ethical fashion traders selling everything from eco-conscious loose leaf tea to hand-painted London artwork. 2020/03/11 Where:

Padella Shoreditch

Opened 13th February 2020

Padella Shoreditch Opened 13th February 2020 Good news for fans of Padella, the hugely popular fresh pasta place in Borough which frequently has big queues out the door. Owners Tim Siadatan and Jordan Frieda are branching out to a second site, this time in Shoreditch. Famous for its short menu - there are eight handmade pasta dishes on the menu in Borough - and affordable prices, Padella was born out of a desire from Tim and Jordan to make quality handmade fresh pasta accessible and at £7 to £10.50 a dish these are prices everyone can afford. What began as a 'greatest hits' of Trullo, the duo's restaurant in Highbury, has taken on a life of its own. Padella uses traditional Italian techniques with quality British produce to make real, slow cooked sauces and Italian ragus. The signature dish is pappardelle with 8-hour beef shin ragu and other options include tagliarini with brown shrimps, green and yellow courgette, squid ink tagliarini with mussels, chilli and oregano, and ravioli of pumpkin and marjoram with sage butter. Tagliarini with Dorset crab, chilli and lemon is also an oldie but goodie. 2020/02/13 Where:

With a much larger bar than previous sites - in Soho and St Christopher's Place - Hoppers King's Cross offers beers on tap and 1960's Tiki cocktails which go well with the home cooked Sri Lankan food its famous for. Centred on an iron-clad concrete bar, with warm, terracotta-toned floors in the main dining area, this restaurant in Pancras Square stays true to Hoppers philosophy of family-style feasting and dishes including negombo crab kari, black pepper curry leaf prawn skewers and quail kari are only available at this King's Cross branch. The menu also features bar bites, seafood grills and beachside snacks inspired by the coastal journey from Colombo, the island's capital, to the historical Dutch town of Galle. Interiors too are reminders of the scenic coastal route. Article Design Studio have incorporated features from the Geoffrey Bawa-designed Bentota Railway Station and the Coat of Arms Bar at Jetwing's Lighthouse Hotel in Galle while batik-patterned designs adorn the ceiling.
 
 
 

Megan's at the Sorting Office

Opened 10th February 2020

Megan's at the Sorting Office Opened 10th February 2020 Megan's, the dog friendly restaurants popular with the Made in Chelsea tribe, continues its ever expanding march with this cafe at the old Sorting Office in Islington Square. Like the original restaurant, which opened in 2002 on the Kings Road, Megan's at the Sorting Office sets the scene for a romantic meal with fairy lights and "filthily delicious food" (Time Out). Frequently voted 'best brunch', which is available until 5pm, the Mediterranean influenced menu includes avocado on toast, baked eggs shakshouka, the famous 'posh' lamb doner kebab and cokertme Turkish steak and chips. At lunch, they have a deli bar, to eat in or takeaway, laden with flatbreads, toasties, salads and more. If you pop by between 4pm and 5pm on weekdays, they offer half price on the deli bar as they hate seeing their fresh daily-made salads go to waste. Offering a warm welcome to dogs, the restaurant lays out bowls, treats dog beds for your four legged friend. The laid back approach extends to children and freelance workers too, offering babyccinos for free and colouring sheets as well as free wifi and plenty of plug points. 2020/02/10 Where:

Dominique Ansel Treehouse

Opened 7th February 2020

Dominique Ansel Treehouse Opened 7th February 2020 Dominique Ansel, the chef who famously invented The Cronut, builds on his bakery on Elizabeth Street in upmarket Belgravia, with this two-storey affair. A takeaway bakery downstairs and a bistro upstairs, Dominique Ansel Treehouse in Covent Garden lives up to its name and looks just like a treehouse with a rope covered "tree trunk" that goes through the building. Bringing back fond childhood memories of climbing trees, with undulating wooden detailing, the all-day cafe offers seating in sunken booths upstairs in the treetops while a bakery takeaway counter serves up fresh-baked pastries, tarts, and classic viennoiserie. The Treehouse introduces a new menu of all-day savoury options including delicate handmade pasta filled with ricotta and cashew and shaped like tiny individual-sized bonbons, flaky puff pastry for pithiviers and vol-au-vent, choux for fluffy gougeres and fresh-baked breads. But for those famous cronuts, you'll have to go to the Dominique Ansel Bakery in Belgravia. 2020/02/07 Where:

Sarap

Opened 30th January 2020

Sarap Opened 30th January 2020 Ferdinand 'Budgie' Montoya, formerly head chef of Foley's in Fitzrovia, is the Sydney-raised chef-owner behind Sarap, bringing Filipino cuisine to Brixton Village. Following three hugely successful pop-ups including at The Duke's Head in Highgate and at The Sun & 13 Cantons in Soho, Sarap has its first full-time stand-alone site. It's best known for its speciality slow-roasted pork belly dish, 'Lechon Liempo' - Sarap's own take on the classic Cebu lechon - described by the Evening Standard's Jimi Famurewa as "a lust-making pyramid of fatty, flame-scorched pig hunks". Add sides of pickled carrot and daikon, plus "a pair of killer condiments" (The Guardian): coconut vinegar and a rich barbecue sauce. The food menu is coupled with a small and carefully curated drinks list of low-intervention wines alongside Filipino-branded, local craft beers and cocktails. With approximately 25 covers including outdoor seating, this is the place to go for a fine Filipino food fix. 2020/01/30 Where:

Ampeli

Opened 15th January 2020

Ampeli Opened 15th January 2020 Taking cues from the modern wine-focused restaurants of Athens, Ampeli in Fitzrovia offers a mix Greek and Eastern Mediterranean food with a strong focus on wines. Set up by photographer and founder Jenny Pagoni, the restaurant's kitchen is led by head chef Oren Goldfeld who has previously worked at Nopi and Tel Aviv's acclaimed Toto restaurant. Oren has worked closely with Jenny to bring her favourite Greek dishes and family recipes to London. These include sharing plates of feta saganaki with tomato jam, okra and goat's cheese fritters as well as smoked cod's roe dip. Heartier dishes include pan-fried Welsh lamb sweetbreads served with spices, almond sauce and pickles or a comforting short rib stew with quince and date molasses. The wine list has been curated by Greek Master of Wine Yiannis Karakasis to champion native wines and producers from emerging wine regions. Elsewhere on the drinks menu, there are classic native spirits such as ouzo, raki and mastica, as well as barrel-aged tsipouro. For something sweet to finish with, try the poppy seed loukoumades - doughnuts with Greek mountain tea syrup - or an indulgent chocolate mahlab mousse with hazelnuts. 2020/01/15 Where:

Ruby Lucy Hotel London

Opened January 2020

Ruby Lucy Hotel London Opened January 2020 A new buzzword for 'budget boutique', the Munich-based Ruby Group has coined the term 'lean luxury' to describe its affordable accommodation for cost conscious travellers. At the Ruby Lucy Hotel London on Lower Marsh, luxury means laid-back comfort instead of formalities. They've saved on space so you save on pounds. The vibe is 'character and soul instead of polished surfaces' and while you might not get a heritage building, you do get a central location directly opposite Waterloo Station. From here it's a ten-minute stroll to the Thames, the Southbank and the London Eye, from where Big Ben and Westminster are a short walk. The decor at the 76-room hotel is paired back and minimal in the rooms, more colourful in the communal areas - the carnival theme comes from the area's bustling fairs and markets. Expect circus drums and juggling pins, rich, dark tones with bright brass fixtures. Not at home unless you're rocking out? One of the more quirky elements is a Marshall amp in each room - don't worry if you didn't bring your guitar, you can borrow one from reception where self-check-in via a tablet reduces that time to under one minute. 2020/01/15 Where:

Muse by Tom Aikens Opened 11th January 2020 A new venture from acclaimed chef Tom Aikens, Muse is a fine dining restaurant that offers every guest a chefs' table experience. The restaurant is spread across two floors in a characterful but small mews house and each level has an open plan theatre kitchen, giving a unique, experience-led meal. The interior itself is an aesthetically pleasing affair with eclectic furnishings, decadent woods, luxury fabrics and jewel-toned marble. In terms of food, Aikens has drawn on poignant memories of his early childhood and career - from the first time he tasted a warm, juicy strawberry to the mentors that have formed part of his professional journey - to create a seasonal, stripped-back tasting menu with many of the signature dishes putting the focus on one key ingredient. One dish, Conquering the 'Beech Tree' - an unconventional combination of langoustine, pork fat and burnt apple - was inspired by childhood memories of climbing a tree with his twin brother and just goest to show you should never be afraid to take risks. Another dish, entitled '­The love affair continues', inspired by Tom's French mentors Joel Robuchon and Pierre Koffmann, combines mashed potato with Koffmann's method of cooking fish in goose fat. 2020/01/11 Where:
