Best New Restaurant and Bar Openings in February 2018

If you’re giving up trying new and amazing restaurants in London for Lent, then don’t read on! We’ve got a new list of places you most definitely need to try.

Humble Grape

Calling all wine lovers (basically everyone) Humble Grape are opening a new wine bar in Liverpool Street. This will be the perfect place for those looking for a relaxing drink after work in the city. There will be 30 wines by the glass and 400 in the bottle for the times one glass just doesn’t cut it.

Santa Maria Pizza

If you haven’t made it to Naples yet, fear not, Santa Maria is sure to be just as good. Listed in the Sunday Times Top 100 UK Restaurants, this top West London pizzeria is moving central to Fitzrovia and is a must try!


Purezza, the UK’s only wood-fired vegan pizzeria is moving to Camden, perfect for the vegan veterans and Veganuary lovers. For the non-vegan’s sceptics, bear in mind that the “Mozzarella” used is half the calories of traditional Mozzarella so it might be worth a try, even if it just to help the waistline.

Farm Girl

Could it be? Healthy cocktails? Apparently so! Farm Girl, the healthy Aussie café is setting up a new restaurant in Chelsea where they’ll be serving up coconut bacon BLT’s, smoothie bowls and superfood cocktails! If you’re on a serious health kick and want to treat yourself, you now know where to go.


A second Butterscotch is coming to Marylebone and it sounds like a huge sweet treat! With a porridge bar and an Afternoon Tea that includes prosecco and bourbon cocktails from 6pm-9:30pm, who says afternoon tea can’t be an evening affair?

Passyunk Avenue

From a food truck in Spitalfields to a restaurant in Fitzrovia, Passyunk will be gracing us with their delicious American style sandwiches. If you’re the type of person who loves to just tuck in with your hands and get messy, the meatball sandwiches and pretzels will be right up your street.

Daddy Bao

Taiwanese is hitting Tooting with the opening of new restaurant Daddy Bao brought to us by the same crew who took Mr Bao to Peckham. Head down to fill up on delicious Bao buns and crunchy fried chicken and wash it all down a with specially brewed house beer.

Choki Dhani

This five-star luxury hotel is bringing a glamorous Indian experience to Battersea! There’ll be street food downstairs and fine dining upstairs as well as a giant 14ft gold elephant which is worth a visit in itself, even just for a pic for Instagram.


These farmers market veterans with nearly 20 years’ experience are setting up shop in Mayfair. Their yummy sweet treats include Truffle Squares, Pear & Chocolate Hazelnut Tart and Rhubarb & Ginger Cheesecake as well as indulgences you can take home for sneaky snacks later.


Sake and basement Karaoke… need we say more?  Jidori is bringing Japanese food and Japans love for karaoke to Covent Garden. If you fancy a sing song after a delicious katsu curry scotch egg then make sure you check this place out.
