From the people behind Trishna, Gymkhana, Lyle’s, Bubbledog’s and Bao, Hoppers boasts a fine heritage. Expect Sri Lankan-style street food, cocktails and a relaxed atmosphere.

Pizza Pilgrims
Exmouth Market

Having seen pizza lovers flock to their existing sites, Pizza Pilgrims bring their legendary creations to their latest restaurant. This time it’s the uber-cool foodie hub of Exmouth Market which looks set to welcome hordes of dough disciples.

Noble Rot

A collaboration between a Michelin-starred gastropub and a popular wine magazine, this one was always going to set tongues wagging. The team behind The Sportsman will be looking after the food, whilst Noble Rot Magazine’s Mark Andrew and Daniel Keeling will take care of the wine selection.

Ivy Cafe

The Ivy needs no introduction, so any opening from its burgeoning family will turn heads. On chic Marylebone Lane, relaxed all-day dining is on the menu.

Yoshihiro Murata holds 7 Michelin stars across his 3 restaurants in Japan, so is not the kind of chef to go unnoticed on the London restaurant scene. Tokimeitē sees his modern Japanese cuisine arrive in Mayfair.

Coin Laundry
Exmouth Market

Exmouth Market may be very ‘of the moment,’ but Coin Laundry is all about looking back to the 70s. Chicken Kievs, Sodastreams and retro decor all make an appearance.

German Gymnasium
King’s Cross

A Grade II-listed building in King’s Cross, German Gymnasium lives up to the name – a former gymnasium serving German cuisine.

Wing Zone
Finsbury Park

The first UK restaurant from the popular American chain, Wing Zone serves up classic wings (of course), burgers, fries and beers. The site adds to the growing number of foodie ventures making Finsbury Park home.


A French-style Grand Cafe, Bellanger is the latest from Corbin and King, the men behind The Delaunay and Brasserie Zédel amongst others. Islington Green provides the sought-after location.

Kanada Ya

The queues outside the original branch of  ramen experts Kanada Ya suggest that this second restaurant will be a hit. This one’s a little bigger, but will no doubt fill up fast.

About Chris Tilsed

After stints in Brighton and France, Chris returned to his native London and its restaurant scene. Bringing back a love of French cuisine, Brasserie Zédel and Bleeding Heart are amongst his current favourites. When he's not eating food or writing about it, Chris can usually be found playing or listening to music.
