Firebrand pizza has won a lot of fans in its original Marylebone site - and now they're opening a second pizzeria in Clerkenwell. But that's not all, as they're also opening Diggs, an all-day cafe next door.
Wing Shack has grown quite the following in Loughton, so they're coming into town with a new chicken shop in Clerkenwell. Expect wings, fillets, burgers and more - as well as a pretty varied selection of sides that includes plantain and cajun squid.
It's early news on this one - but we hear that Clerkenwell is getting a promising new restaurant in 2020.

London is awash with collaboration menus and cocktail pop-ups, but one coming to Clerkenwell next month sounds particularly noteworthy.
MARTINI are joining up with Italian restaurant LUCA for a month long aperitivo festival and the food sounds every bit as amazing as the drinks they'll be serving to go with them. They've roped in Michelin-starred Head Chef Matteo Baronetto of Turin’s Del Cambio, one of Italy’s oldest restaurants. Matteo has, in turn, worked with LUCA
