If there’s one thing London offers us, its choice when it comes to eating out. Each month we see countless new restaurants and bars opening up and we thought you might like some help deciphering which are “must tries”.
LOBOS Meat & Tapas Bar
Who holds the Head Chef job: Roberto Castro
What to except: Lobos, the Spanish word for wolves, will leave you howling with delight from the prime cuts of Iberico pig on offer.
Vibe: A moody cave offering casual dining and fresh produce thanks to its proximity to Borough Market.
Camino Tapas Bankside
Who holds the Executive Chef job: Nacho Del Campo
What to expect: Authentic Spanish tapas washed down with equally Spanish craft beers, largers or a glass of cava.
Vibe: Casual bar style tapas with a south-facing terrace for the sunnier days.
Who holds the Head Chef job: JP Tanti
What to except: Any type of egg served any kind of way, and if eggs aren’t your thing, their experimental chicken wings are sure to tantalize your taste buds.
Vibe: Many a joke about what came first, the chicken or the egg.
Balans Kensington High Street
What to except: Indulgence is the name of the game.
Vibe: Quirky décor (there’s a tree in the middle of the back dining room) with brasserie style British dishes.
Balls & Company
Who hold the Head Chef job: Bonny Porter
What to expect: Meatballs, meatballs and more meatballs!
Vibe: Sharing plates in Soho made from only the very best ingredients.
Who holds the Executive Chef job: Jordan Sclare
What to except: Exceptional seafood with a focus on sustainability.
Vibe: Seafood tanks and a menu full of coastal charm.
Who holds the Executive Chef job: we’re not entirely sure just yet
What to except: details are few and far between but we hear eggs and baps will be a main feature on the menu.
Vibe: We presume it’ll reflect a similar style to Hubbard & Bell and Chicken Shop in the Holborn Hoxton Hotel as Ennismore and Soho House have once again joined forces.
Who holds the Head Chef job: Richard Lloyd
What to except: An all Italian restaurant, food, wine and décor!
Vibe: Based in Covent Garden, this will be a popular spot for theatre-goers and tourists passing by, as well as, London foodies.
What makes a great restaurant? Some say the décor, the ambiance or the location but for us it’s all about those in hospitality jobs. With so much choice of places to eat out in London, finding the right people to fill your restaurant’s chef jobs could be the difference between being a good restaurant and being a great one.
