It’s been a while now since restaurants, bars and pubs have opened, giving us the freedom to go out again and make up for the lost time whilst we were restricted – however you may have hit a point now where you are running out of ideas for new places to try.
That’s why we’ve created a list of new openings this October to keep you going!
Read on if you want to be the first to try the new hottest venues:
This traditional, all day setting restaurant offers a menu inspired from North Africa, as well as Eastern Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes.
Breakfast includes a Challah French Toast, lunch boasts Middle Eastern flatbreads with various toppings, and for dinner why not try the Sutton Hoo slow-grilled chicken with curry pickled radicchio.
Lonsdale Road, Queen’s Park, NW6 6RR
This restaurant is a must try and will be well worth the decade long wait – think Cornish yarg churros, Derbyshire longhorn flat rib, Arhuaco businchara cocoa.
The menu offers one single tasting menu, for £99.
The unique restaurant interior adds to the experience including wool and skins from their own animals.
14 New Union Square, Embassy Gardens, SW11 7AX.
The much loved Italian restaurant has confirmed its return offering the same Umbrian menu as before, including the traditional home made pasta dishes made up of few ingredients but tasting exceptional.
10-11 D’Arblay Street, London W1F 8DS
The high end Italian restaurant provides a menu which centres around biodiversity and organic farming – providing fresh ingredients and a “farm to table dining experience”.
The menu is still fairly secret however we know that the restaurant will also be serving their very own wines making the experience even more organic and exclusive.
15 Berkeley Street, Mayfair, London W1J 8DY
A grade II listed building in Covent Garden will be turning into multiple restaurants across three floors:
First floor – Pivot, a restaurant which uses the best British and Scottish produce. With an open kitchen, you’ll be able to see the chef creating dishes such as Beef tartar in a pastry shell, a Quail Kiev, or a Roast Aberdeen Angus beef roast.
Basement – El Ta K’oy, a restaurant that’s based on a Hawaiian tiki bar with a menu inspired by Asia and Latin America. Expect small bites, tacos, poke bowls and tiki cocktails.
Ground floor – Lilly’s, a day brunch style restaurant with indulgent cakes and pastries, as well as all day dishes such as Roasted cauliflower shawarma rice bowl, Laventine pita nachos and Rum baba.
3 Henrietta Street, London, WC2E 8LU
Originally in Amsterdam, this avocado-centric restaurant features beautiful dishes centred around the food in name. Just one of the creative dishes is an Avocado toast with a curry and mango hummus, an avocado rose and black sesame.
6 Princes Street, London, W1B 2LG.
A news build at the centre of White City is a new four story restaurant. The ground floor will be a casual pub, the second floor a more formal dining restaurant, and at the top a pergola style cocktail bar. All of the food will focus on providing local, British produce with a selection of drinks.
101 Wood Lane, London, W12 7FR
