Don't you just love this time of year? When London's larders fill with ultra seasonal produce from wild garlic to gulls eggs and asparagus. We've been trawling some of London's chef and restaurant Instagram and Twitter accounts for lovely pictures of new asparagus dishes hitting London tables right about now for your delectation
City Social gets seasonal
In the City, high rise restaurant City Social adds asparagus to all manner of other seasonal produce...
Croquettes at Oldroyd
Over in Islington, Instagrammer Felicity Spector enjoyed these asparagus croquettes at Oldroyd...
With crab at Native
Native in Covent Garden has come up with the most spectacularly pretty dish...
With pork belly at Paradise Garage
Slender sprigs of asparagus make this pork dish at Paradise Garage in Bethnal Green a seasonal treat
Fresh British sourced produce. The sour dough bread was warm like it came straight from the oven and the butter looked like it was freshly churned. I thought I could eat anything and everything until I saw offal on the menu. The dishes sound pretty far fetched but they were really tasty! The set menu was also good value for money and included a glass of bubbly. Each course was yummy, I'm tempted to try the tasting menu next time and even open to trying some offal. Wheelchair access: Step free entrance with accessible toilets, but the area around the restaurant is a bit cobbly. Once you're in, you'll be fine.
On the canal with London Shell Co
Take to the water with the London Shell Co where you can enjoy this asparagus dish as you cruise down the canal...
Straight from Cornwall at Outlaw's

And with some shrimp at Lorne

Off Oxford Street with a glass of great wine
