No details on the menu yet, although Adam says he wants to "draw on the heritage of the building and reinterpret it in my own way" - with Lillie Langtry and Oscar Wilde as former residents, that could mean almost anything!

Opening 01 Jan 2019
Originating in New Delhi in 2014, the Farzi Cafe chain from the House of Massive Restaurants now has nine branches across India and in Dubai. The London opening will serve up traditional Indian dishes in a contemporary style - buzzwords from the PR include "post-molecular", "laboratory-style", "playfully inspired" and "sonic homogeniser" (it's used to make cocktails, apparently). The drinks list is called The Vedika Menu, which is apparently Sanskrit for “restoring knowledge” - in our experience, cocktails often do the exact opposite...

A London location has been touted in the past but has not materialised until now. The new 'theme park' is thought to be taking over 135 Bishopsgate previously occupied by Royal Bank of Scotland.
