  • byron launch a new brunch menu

    Twelve years is a long time in the burger business, so it’s understandable that Byron have decided to freshen things up a little. After welcoming celebrity chef and author Sophie Michell as their Food & Drink Director in June, there’s now firm plans to shake up the menu.

    Starting at the first ever Byron site in High Street Kensington, then rolling out in other branches across 2020, there’ll finally be a dedicated brunch menu. And if

    Here at Hot Dinners, we're particularly partial to a good cheese toastie, so news of a whole bunch of them hitting a menu in East London certainly got our attention.

    Red Hand opened earlier this year on Stoke Newington High Street - the bar serves craft beer and cocktails on tap, focuses on natural wines and small batch spirits.

    In the kitchen is chef Rebecca Lever from I Will Kill Again and she's the one responsible for their

  • pret new menu

    With so many Londoners flooding through their doors every day, any change to Pret's menu is kind of a big deal.

    Today the chain revealed their biggest new menu in their 33 year history. Driven by what their customers are asking for, the new menu features - as you might expect - more veggie and vegan options. But it's also going to see more products available throughout the day. So when you fancy a salad pot in the middle of the afternoon, just

    Well, what a treat for West Londoners. We hear that Andina Bakery over on Westbourne Grove is gearing up to open in the evenings with a rather special offering.

    The Peruvian bakery has teamed up with Keeling Andrew & Co, the new wine import company set up by the founders of Noble Rot. They'll be creating a series of tapas to go along with a weekly changing wine list, with dishes like:

    • Pork steamed bun, rocoto chilli

    Polpetto (from the same stable as the Polpo family) has been given a new lease of life with a redesign, a new chef at the helm and a new menu and wine list to boot too.

    It sounds like the space has had a total revamp, with an entirely new layout, styling and design. Booths will run along the walls and we’ve been told there'll be better spacing with larger tables, which will come in hand for the new menus which are designed for sharing and feasting. The chefs

    No matter what the forecasters are saying about a last minute Indian summer, Autumn is definitely on the way. And the imminent arrival of Pret's Autumn menu in two weeks time seals the deal. Here's what you need to look out for...

  • teqavo

    If Covent Garden restaurant Cantina Laredo were gunning for the millennial market, they couldn't have done any better than their latest wheeze. For National Tequila Day next week (yes, there really IS a national day for that and it's on 24 July) anyone who orders one of their Clásico Guacamoles will get a free tequila shot straight out of an avocado.

    Better still, the restaurant will then use that tequila infused avocado to make your guacamole.

    It's been an "interesting" period for Byron. It's probably fair to say that with their rapid expansion - not to mention hitting the headlines over immigration issues - they've lost some of the love that the British public had for them, back in the day.

    But the burger chain is
