Fallow are Jack Croft and Will Murray, who met while they were both working at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal and they're very much followers of a "nose to tail" and "root to stem" cooking approach with a big focus on no/low waste.
If you've been wondering what Gizzi Erskine was up to next, well she's just about to open a three-month residency at the St Martins Lane London hotel.
And we rather like the sound of The Nitery by Gizzi Erskine. It's inspired by early 20th-century Parisian niteries (which sound like they were the first restaurant pop-ups) and the more louche spots of the same name that were seen later across the pond in Atlantic City. It's going to be a mix

This time it's the turn of Alter, for an all-vegan takeover. Alter is founded by Andy Hogben, who has previously worked at Dabbous, Som Saa and Kym’s and offers vegan food with street-food influences.
The menu will change over the period, but here's
Ever since featuring on My Million Pound Menu, chef Jay Morjaria's plant-based food has been in demand. Now the chef, who is currently working on plans to open his own standalone restaurant JAE, will be previewing dishes from that restaurant in Soho.
For January Jay will be taking over the kitchens at Hovarda every lunchtime. His completely vegan, East Asian menu will include dishes like:
It's time for another change at P Franco, the tiny Clapton wine bar that manages to keep well ahead of London trends with only a few induction hobs to its name. If you're not familiar with them, they switch over chefs every six month or so - each chef completely changing the style of food and really stamping their name on the place. Most recently was Tubo Legier - and all eyes are on him to see what he does

Dalston is about to get a new burger bar, setting up shop in The Three Compasses. Filthy Buns, led by exec chef John Gladwell, will be settling down for a residency in the pub following their start on the street food scene this summer.
Here's what's on offer:
They first took over Walthamstow's Manze's pie shop (in the evenings only) for a pop-up last year and returned a few times since. Now The Jellied Eel are back in the same location for a permanent residency featuring their combination of cocktails and croquetas.
