08 Jun There’s a Few New Kids on The Block!
It’s plain to see that everyone likes to eat our nowadays and although a lot of the time we’re spoilt for choice we still like to hear of new places to tickle our taste buds. Here are 3 new London restaurants due to open in the next few weeks. Why not take our recommendations and try them out…
Morden and Lea
Mark Sargeant, who is well known for working with Gordon Ramsay over the past decade, is behind this new restaurant in Soho. The first floor offers a casual, no reservations atmosphere with an allday snacks and charcuterie menu, including a seafood sausage roll and mackerel with red onion, capers and parsley. For something more refined, head upstairs for a fixed priced brasserie style dinner menu. There is a small cocktail bar and private dining space for eight people.
New York City restaurant and late night spot, Hotel Chantelle, will be opening its first international outpost in London in July, offering American fare with a French influence that combines molecular gastronomy, comfort food and haute cuisine. Typical dishes include waffle-crusted fried chicken with maple syrup cotton candy and a tuna tartare cigar served in a vintage glass ashtray. Just off Oxford Street, near Selfridges, diners can escape the busy London streets to find a Parisian garden oasis in a 2.500 sq ft dining area, which can also be hired exclusively for events.
Chef Tom Oldroyd, who was previously chef director at the Polpo restaurant group for five years, will be offering a daily changing menu at his first solo opening, Oldroyd, near Angel tube station. The 40 cover restaurant, spread across two floors, will service locally sourced seasonal British produce, such as confit mustard duck wings and Cornish chorizo, prawn and broad paella, with cockles and aioli. The top floor will be available for private hire.
