  • Anne-Sophie Pic's La Dame de Pic is coming to London's Four Seasons


    Next year, luxury accommodation giant Four Seasons will open another fantastically slick London hotel, and the star of the show will almost certainly be its new French restaurant, La Dame de Pic.

    Operating out of a stunning Grade-II listed building near Tower Hill Street, the restaurant will be the first British foray of the triple-Michelin-starred Anne-Sophie Pic. One of the very few female chefs in existence who’ve been awarded three Michelin stars,

    The Holy Birds, an all-poultry restaurant is landing in the City

    The people behind The Hoxton Pony and Wringer and Mangle, The Calabrese Brothers, have their next restaurant on the way.

    Holy Birds is a restaurant bar and lounge, with the restaurant bit being upstairs. That's going to

  • Roma restaurant in the City opens on the site of an old Roman fort


    It's all change in the City where trad British restaurant Harper's has been entirely transformed into Roma, an Italian restaurant focusing on all things Roman. The site itself on New London Street has a rather lovely connection with the new approach to food - it's where an actual Roman fort used to stand back in the day.

    ​The wine list has a Roman Empire theme - so every wine is traced back to vineyards which the Romans would have known. As for the food, apparently

    The idea is that all the meat for the restaurant will be sourced from small independent farmers before being butchered on-site at sister restaurant

  • London's first Nespresso cafe is now open on Cheapside


    For true caffeine addicts, the only real coffee worth having is a single estate espresso made for you by someone who would throw you out of their cafe rather then serve anything with milk or sugar. But you know there are a lot of Nespresso fans who just flipping love their coffee pods, so they're the ones who'll be excited at the news that a Nespresso cafe has just opened in London.

    It's the first full blown Nespresso cafe, following a test run in Vienna, and

  • Andaz London Liverpool Street launches its 1901 wine lounge

    Updated 12/2/18 with opening date

  • Earl's Serious Sandwiching opens permanent spot in the City


    You may have come across Earl’s Serious Sandwiching at various festivals or markets over the past few years. But now the sarnie street food spot is moving to more permanent quarters in the City.

    Situated, incredibly aptly on Crown Place, off Earl St (behind Liverpool Street) the new place is the brainchild of Joe Gray, who trained up with Jamie Oliver's Fifteen and got help from the Prince's Trust in putting his business together.
