Hot Dinners rounds up some of the best food and restaurant pop-ups and events around town at the moment.
The late May bank holiday is our last one for a while, so you need to make the most of your extended weekend. Luckily we've rounded up the best food and drinks things going on in London for the Whitsun weekend so you can do just that.
Once again, London is getting ready for another great-sounding Meatopia festival over in Tobacco Dock. Every year (this will be its seventh), a great selection of top chefs get together to create some truly excellent dishes - all created specifically for the festival. You won't see any of these dishes elsewhere. Oh, and a lot of meat is involved.
Heading to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this year? There's a distinct G&T theme to some of the gardens at this year's show.
Updated 4/6/19 with full list of restaurants and dishes
If your idea of heaven is spending hours roaming Taste of London with a free pass to eat all the food in sight, then we have good news for you. For this year's festival, they're offering one lucky London foodie the chance to do just that, becoming one of the Best in Taste Awards tasters.
The winner of the competition will get a chance to
Jermyn Street isn't the first, second or even third place you'd think of in London as being somewhere to get a great meal deal but, for two days next week, it will be.
One of London's oldest restaurants is launching its new English sparkling wine collection. And so they've teamed up with Nyetimber to bring The Nyetimber Routemaster up to London, parking it right outside Wiltons on Jermyn Street.
Inside you'll be able to book a session to have
It currently takes upwards of 29 years to reach the top of the membership waiting list at Lord's. But if you don't have that sort of staying power, you can enjoy the benefits of eating in the cricket club's Grade II* listed Pavilion as part of the Lord's Dining Club.
While the club may be all about tradition, the chefs they've chosen to partner with this year are all about innovation. So there's Tommy Banks from The Black Swan in Oldstead, Michael Caines from
For the past few years, London In The Sky has been thrilling/terrifying diners by hosting a restaurant 100ft up in the air. And they're back for 2019 with a range of fun things planned, including letting it all hang out for charity.
Yes, that's right. If you've been thinking that the one thing you'd like more than dangling up in the sky for a great meal is dangling your bits out in the breeze whilst having a great meal, then this is 100% your thing.
International Women's Day is coming up and we can't think of a better way to celebrate - if your budget allows - than by sitting down to dinner by two world class female chefs.
The Four Seasons London at Trinity Square is hosting a one off event featuring their own chef Anne-Sophie Pic cooking alongside Clare Smyth.
Each chef will each showcase a selection of their own signature dishes as part of the five course dinner which will be paired with wine
When it comes to good causes, then Magic Breakfast is right up there. If you haven't heard of the charity before, then the premise is simple (albeit pretty depressing that the need for it exists). They raise money to provide healthy breakfasts to children who arrive at school too hungry to learn.
Over the years they've run a series of fun charity breakfast events, but this year they're stepping things up with the launch of the first ever Magic Brunch. This
You've got to hand it to Hawksmoor - when they say they're bringing a top brigade together for their annual Dream Team Dinner they've really nailed it this year.
The five course feast in aid of Action Against Hunger has just announced its line-up for 2019 and it sounds unmissable.
Kicking off the evening they'll have Kyseri and OKLAVA’s Head Chef Selin Kiazim, winner and star of BBC 2 series, The Great British Menu, creating a selection of canapés. Following her
You may be the kind of person for whom the very idea of Hyde Park Winter Wonderland is worse than spending the holidays with your in-laws, in which case there's nothing to see here. If, however, like us, anything that combines rollercoasters with hot toddies, more churros than you can shake a candy cane at AND covers it all with a sprinkling of fake snow and Christmas cheer is just the thing for you, then read on.
In previous years, it's
Following on from their TacOver series, in which chefs from all over the world popped up at their gaff and did some amazing taco mashups, the guys at breddos are doing a special seasonal version.
Their Christmas TacOver is going to be a one off tasting menu with TABASCO® Sauce and they've lined up some cracking partners for it. Joining Nud in the kitchen in Clerkenwell will be:
Who ate all the pies? You if you manage to get tickets to Dominique Ansel Bakery London's Pie Night. The hook - unlimited slices of pie.
As New Yorkers would tell you, this is one of those events you'll need to put an alert in your calendar for. Ansel has been running it there for the past four years and apparently in NYC tickets sell out in two minutes.
For £42 you can eat as many slices of the ten different pies on offer as you can manage in

If you're a fan of Japanese food and drink, then we can't think of a better event to put in your diary than The Joy of Sake. For one evening only, London's Barbican Centre becomes a focus for beginners and enthusiasts alike to try a whopping 478 sakes from 192 breweries across Japan. And if that on its own isn't enough to get you booking, 14 top London restaurants are going to be there too, putting
