The most anticipated restaurants of the summer and beyond

Dining spots to look forward to in the months ahead

Over the next few months you can expect to see some exciting new additions to London’s ever-changing culinary landscape. There’s Spanish cooking from a game-changing duo, a tavern from a two-Michelin-starred chef, a riverside Italian in the shadows of a London icon and so much more. Read on to discover what should be on your hit list this summer.

SaborEx-Barrafina chef breaks out alone with Sabor

When Nieves Barragán – Barrafina’s executive chef for nine years – announced he would be setting up shop with Barrafina general manager José Etura we got very excited indeed. Of course, Sabor is going to be a Spanish joint and will dish up regional food from across the country using traditional cooking methods – we’ve heard that Galician octopus and Castilian suckling pig cooked in a wood-fired oven will be specialities.

If this wasn’t exciting enough, the duo have received backing from JKS Restaurants group – the canny restaurateurs who set up Gymkhana, Hoppers, Bao, XU and Lyle’s. There’ll be a lot of buzz around this Heddon Street opening so make sure you keep up to date with all the latest.

Daniel DohertyDan Doherty branches out with Sprout

Kicking off with a four-day pop-up at Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge from 27-30 June, Duck & Waffle’s Dan Doherty hopes to go permanent with his new concept, Sprout. Separate from the D&W brand, it’ll be an all-day casual café by day and a more formal dining space at night and, as always, he’ll champion local ingredients. A green theme will run throughout the restaurant, with plants and ceramics covering the space which will be up for sale, with all proceeds going to the local community who supplied them.

Register to be kept up to date with all the latest news, but if you can’t wait that long to try Doherty’s cooking we can secure tables at Duck & Waffle and if it’s your first visit, you and your table will enjoy a complimentary glass of bubbly on arrival.

FiumeFrancesco Mazzei opens his third restaurant with D&D group

The Italian chef has been keeping himself busy recently having launched Radici in Islington in April while overseeing operations at Sartoria and he is now readying himself for the launch of Fiume at the new Battersea Power Station development. Mazzei is one of the most highly respected Italian chefs in London and there’s no doubt that the menu will focus on piles of fresh pasta, plates of pizza and homemade gelato.

The riverside restaurant will be in the Circus West Village section of the development which means it will be on the riverbank with a large terrace overlooking the water. If it opens in time for summer, this’ll be a hotspot for al fresco dining – register with us for more news on the opening when we have it.

Michel Roux JrMichel Roux Jr set to open a pub

OK, so it’s not going to be your average local boozer – this will be a high-class new opening next to the Langham hotel. The two-starred chef already runs the main restaurant in the famous hotel and his tavern will be designed by the team behind the interiors at Aquavit and Sexy Fish so expect some seriously stylish decor. The drinks menu will take centre stage and concentrate on London ales, one of which will be the pub’s own brew, and cups of punch and beer-spiked cocktails.

When it comes to the food, forget pork scratchings and bags of crisps, it will have the Michel Roux Jr touch. Development is underway and we expect it to open later this summer.

NarcissaWork begins on the Standard Hotel in King’s Cross

Construction has begun on The Standard hotel and we’re hoping for a 2018 opening. The New York original is famed for being much more than just a place to stay – it’s one of the hippest hangouts in Manhattan and a regular haunt for the A-list so we expect similar fanfare when the London version opens. The project’s founder André Balazs is the brains behind the Chiltern Firehouse, though he left the Standard board in spring, and we can’t wait for news about which restaurants and chefs will take up residency in the hotel

When work is completed it’ll join The Ned, The Henrietta and The Curtain as a hotel with a focus on good times and will cause a big stir when it opens. We can keep you posted on news when we hear it.

The Wellington HotelRobert De Niro to open second London hotel and restaurant

While the Hollywood A-lister’s Nobu Hotel in Shoreditch readies itself for its 1 July opening, we’ve heard that the actor-turned-hotelier has also been granted planning permission to build an 83-bedroom Wellington hotel in the heart of Covent Garden. Very few details of the property have been unveiled but we do know that it will feature a private members’ club and two restaurants. We won’t be surprised if at least one of the two dining spaces is taken over by a big-name chef.

If you’d like to hear more news, register your interest with us for updates. In the meantime, why not reserve a table at Nobu in Shoreditch.

1 UndershaftLondon’s dining scene gets ever higher

Our members love dining with a view and the sky-high restaurants at the Shard and Heron Tower always top the list. However, things are set to hit new heights after the 73-floor Trellis skyscraper was given the go-ahead at the end of last year. When it’s completed in 2020, it’ll become the second tallest building in Europe – standing a shade shorter than the Shard – and the top floors have already been earmarked for a number of dining concepts.

We predict there’ll be some big-name chefs taking over the top floors but news is still being kept under wraps but we’ll be among the first to hear it when it breaks, so register with us for updates.

Ivy shepherd's pie © Sim Canetty-ClarkeThe Ivy on the Square set to open in Edinburgh

This autumn, the Scottish capital is set to welcome the next addition of The Ivy’s fast-growing collection in St Andrew Square. Little detail has been released about the menu but it’s safe to say that it’ll feature most of The Ivy’s signatures – the famous shepherd’s pie included – and we predict there’ll be some Scottish classics on there too (fingers crossed for an Ivy take on haggis, neeps and tatties).

When it comes to the decor, expect more of the stylish art deco touches – think marble floors, pendant lighting and antique mirrors – with bespoke artwork by comic artist Adam Ellis. This’ll be a big addition to Edinburgh’s food scene and will be immensely popular.
