Park Walk SW10

Back where it all began; Gordon shows his sentimental side by taking over the spot that once housed Aubergine, the restaurant where he made his name. Opening has now been pushed back until April.

The man who can seemingly do no wrong, Jason Atherton is to launch this robatayaki and sashimi-come-izakaya-style spot in February, on the former site of Turnmills nightclub. Will his empire finally feel the strain of expansion in 2015? Only time will tell.






Portland W1

A new venture from Will Lander, co-owner of The Quality Chop House (but more importantly ex-Harden’s employee!) and Daniel Morgenthau (ex-10 Greek Street) serving food all day and over 20 wines by the glass. Expected early January.


Bleecker Street Burger E1

The first full time home for this hugely popular burger van opens in Spitalfields Market in January, further illustrating the capital’s growing penchant for pop-ups-going-permanent.


Bocca di Lupo WC2

Jacob Kenedy and Victor Hugo, the duo behind Soho favourite Bocca di Lupo, are to open a larger, more casual operation on the site of a Pizza Hut in the heart of Theatreland. Expected in March.
