For over 40 years, the Brass Rail at Selfridges has been serving up one of London's great meaty sandwiches. Their salt beef reuben is legendary.
But changes are afoot. To tie in with the department store's new Project Earth sustainability push, they're temporarily rebranding this temple of meat as The Grass Rail - serving up a brand new vegan menu.
Available alongside the traditional menu, vegans will now be able to order a Salt
They've already achieved a pretty impressive makeover of nearby Grade 1 listed St Mark's and now Mercato Metropolitano have gone outside to Brown Hart Gardens, the raised garden area just in front of the Beaumont Hotel (most recently the Bonnie Gill seafood shack). Their latest opening is
It was one of the first big London stores to reopen its food department, and now Selfridges is getting in on the street market act. They're taking over the mews behind the Oxford Street store at weekends to create Market on the Mews.
The market will be what they're calling "a rotating edit of food, drink, magazines, plants, flowers bikes and furniture." It'll see the store take over Edwards Mews with a range of
Following the reopening of Selfridges Food Hall two weeks ago, probably the most-asked question was, "But when is The Brass Rail reopening?"
The restaurant, which first opened way back in 1966, has been serving New York-style sarnies for over 50 years. So its many fans will be pleased to hear that it's now
We've been reporting on restaurants and cafes reopening for delivery, but we're very heartened to be able to report the reopening of the Selfridges Food Hall today. It feels like one more step back towards normality, helping London prepare itself for when the lockdown is eventually lifted.
In an announcement this morning, the Oxford Street store said it was reopening to serve the local community. They'll also be making it easy

First, we had Claridge's launching their Loubi Express cocktail bar with just eight seats. Now Selfridges have unveiled their Veuve Clicquot Le Tram bar in time for the festive season.

London has started getting a few new luxe cinemas where the food is a little more than nachos and popcorn. The latest to open is a cinema right in the heart of Selfridges on Oxford Street - but alas you can't take the food into the screening with you.
The Cinema at Selfridges is now open on their lower ground floor (there's a direct entrance from the street too) and has been created
The latest Market Hall has landed just off Oxford Street. It's their largest food court yet - we went down for a first look.
The march of the food court continues with the latest Market Hall coming to Oxford Street. A huge site, this features 11 food traders, 4 bars and a roof terrace too.
There are quite a lot of changes happening all over Selfridges at the moment - and the latest is their confectionary department.

London's more fashionable foodies should hotfoot it over to Selfridges as soon as they can if they want any chance of getting hold of the latest KITH capsule collection with Nobu.
The 17 piece set just dropped at the brand's Selfridges store, but judging by the reaction on Instagram, lord knows how long it'll be in stock for.

If you've been to Anne-Sophie Pic's restaurant La Dame de Pic, you'll know that one of the highlights of the meal is the very impressive millefeuille dessert at the end. It's VERY instagrammable. Now she's bringing the millefeuille to Selfridges - but as a trio of three flavours.
They'll be on offer at The Fount Bar by Ryan Chetiyawardana (aka Mr Lyan) on the shop's ground floor. There will
If highly instagrammable desserts aren't your thing, then you'll maybe want to give new Marylebone cafe a swerve. Opened by chef Zahra Khan over the weekend - who's also responsible for the VERY pink nearby cafe Feya - this new dessert spot says it's all about offering "an aesthetically appealing vibe to be the next go-to millennial stop."
If you can look past that guff, it does sound like the
