Head to Stevie Parle's restaurant in Clerkenwell where the new Autumn menu has just been revealed.
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...
1. Power Omelettes are go!
Apparently these are some of the most popular breakfast items in Pret's US stores. There's a veggie Egg White Power Omelette and a Ham & Spinach Power Omelette to choose
It’s time for a bit of celebration this year, as not one but two of London’s most legendary restaurants and a classic bar are hitting double digits, with their 10th birthdays - Murano, the Modern Pantry and The Connaught bar - and they’ve got plenty of plans to mark the occasion in style.
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.

London's gastropub scene has been getting a real injection of creativity of late, what with Dan Doherty and Tom Oldroyd both opening their own boozers and Henry Harris bringing his skills to a range of pubs
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.

If you've been wondering why CHIK'N on Baker Street is currently closed, then let us enlighten you. The team are working behind the scenes to turn it into more of an ‘express’ Chick ‘n’ Sours with more attitude to the dishes and a restaurant that's "more chilled to sit in now". And to that end, they're bringing in three new sandwiches and one amazing sounding special.
They'll be keeping two of their burgers - the Straight Up and CHIK’N Classic but new ones
It's apparently spring (looks out of window forlornly) so we're bringing you some salad news in the hope that eating it will somehow have a knock-on effect on the weather. Which is why we were interested to hear about the team up between The Providores chef, restaurateur and food writer, Peter Gordon and Drake & Morgan.
To tie in with Peter's new book ‘Savour – Salads for All Seasons’, he's come up with five fusion salads on the menu at all of their
You know it's not all tasting menus and wine pairing here at Hot Dinners HQ. We'd be lying if we didn't admit to being just as partial as the next person to a cheeky Nando's. So it's only to be expected that our timeline totally blew up today with the news that they're about to launch two new veggie dishes.
I mean, we're glad to hear that there's a veggie stew coming - Veggie Cataplana mixes chargrilled veggies with chickpeas and beans, in a hot tomato and coconut
Whether it's the cold weather or our general need for carbs, London has currently got a bit of pash for Yorkshire puddings. Last week we reported on a new Liverpool Street pub doing bottomless yorkies - now a riverside restaurant is supersizing them.
