New restaurant and bar openings this winter

Temple and Sons by Jason Atherton:

Yet another home run to come for the hero of the hospitality industry with this new City site. It’ll sit right next to already renowned, City Social, and be a ‘relaxed grill restaurant’, also offering an all-day deli and cocktail bar.

Opened: November 21st


A pan-Asian hangout opening up next to Camden tube station. Immerse yourself in a temple focused solely on dining, drinking and decadence. Offering 50% off their soft launch, it’s definitely worthwhile signing up.

Opening: November

Duck, Duck, Goose:

A Cantonese canteen set to open at the beloved Pop Brixton. Affordable, tasty and traditional Cantonese cuisine set to knock your socks off. Not only is their name genius, apparently their prawn toast will “end all others”. Sold!

Opening: January 2017

Bonnie Gull Seafood:

Sometimes there’s few things better than a plate of fresh seafood and Bonnie Gull’s sure knows how to deliver. You will soon be able to reel in your favourite (sustainable) catch at their new Soho site opening up in December. While traditional fish ‘n’ chips rock, you’ll be able to treat yourself to a whole lot more than that.

Opening: December


A Washoku dining and sake cellar that’s just opened in Mayfair. Delivering unique and authentic Japanese food as well as a wide array of sake’s to be enjoyed both hot and cold. They are all about using seasonal and fresh produce to create beautiful dishes that stimulate all 5 senses. They also offer 22 varieties of Japanese whiskey, craft beers and well, everything else. Arigatou Sakagura!

Opened: November 15th

El Pastor:

Opening December is a much needed Mexican in the heart of Borough Market on Stoney Street. Dedicating a whole level to making fresh tortillas as well as a homemade, pastor marinade there’s no doubt it’ll be hit for locals and tourists alike.

Opening: December 12th

Tank and Paddle:

Do you sometimes just feel like carb loading until you can’t move? Or are you perhaps just on a strict diet of pizza and mac n cheese? Well this genius new Paddington resident is offering just that. Yep. Just pizza and a variety of mac n cheeses. If you’re bringing a health conscious date (yawn) there is also salads available, but don’t let that stop you from tearing into the nutella dough balls dowsed in a maple cinnamon sauce… Heart exploding yet?

Opening: November 28th
