53 Lexington St, London W1F 9AS

Critic reviews - total score 9.5 out of 10
One of the most successful example of street food vendors going permanent, this is one of the toughest places to grab a seat at in Soho. But when you do, the steamed milk buns that are at the heart of the menu make it all worthwhile.

One of London's oldest restaurants, the Ivy has recently undergone a big revamp and has re-built almost the entire restaurant. Chief among the changes is a new central bar area with plenty of counter dining spaces added. There are new paintings too - but expect some old favourites to appear too.

58 Brewer Street, London W1F 9TL
Critic reviews - total score 9 out of 10
This restaurant is from the founder of the Smoking Goat, still focusing on Thai food but going for simplicity. Expect a short grill menu and a daily noodle dish and a regularly changing wine list by Zeren Wilson. It's primarily counter dining too.

10 Adelaide Street, London WC2N 4HZ
Critic reviews - total score 9 out of 10
The Hart Brothers (also behind Quo Vadis and Fino) are opening a second venue of Barrafina, the Soho tapas restaurant. While much on the menu will be familiar to diners at their current restaurant with a menu made up of classic and contemporary tapas, chef Nieves Barragán Mohacho is planning some entirely new dishes. Those dishes will probably be inspired by the Josper oven that's being installed here.
Patty and Bun
Marylebone
54 James St, London W1U 1HE
Critic reviews - total score 9 out of 10
They've been one of the kings of pop-ups and residencies and have a great following. Now Patty & Bun are going permanent with a restaurant just off Oxford Street, very near both Tommi's and MEATliquor. Expect a 'short, focused and affordable menu using the best of British ingredients wherever possible' with eccentrically-titled numbers such as the 'Ari Gold' cheeseburger and 'Jose jose' chilli burger popular at previous pop-up events.
