A PR Directory for the restaurant industry featuring new openings.

New Openings
Pure Filth

Gizzi Erskine was early to right-size the whole clean-eating fad with her book Healthy Appetite. Now she’s paired up with nutritionist Rosemary Ferguson to launch Pure Filth, dishes they call “healthy food for hedonists”, that have been extensively tested to be full of flavour. Those wishing to boost their veggie intake in an indulgent way can visit the Pure Filth three-weekend pop-up at Tate Modern before the pair open a permanent site next year. Further information here.


Opening date: November 2017


Address: Bankside London SE1 9TG

Next week sees the long-awaited opening of Duddell’s in London Bridge. The Michelin-starred original serves classic Cantonese dishes at its Hong Kong site and will bring these to London: expect Peking duck, XO beef, lobster noodles and haute dim sum. In fact, there will be an open dim sum kitchen for diners to watch the intricate bites being created – and the restaurant as a whole sounds like a study in elegance.


Opening date: November 2017


Head Chef: Daren Liew

Will you do Kudu? A new restaurant in Peckham has the right pedigree to attract diners – it’s the work of Amy Corbin (daughter of Corbin & King’s Chris) and Patrick Williams, who worked at The Manor and Paradise Garage. Set to open in January, Kudu is named for a beast from South Africa, Williams’ home country, and the menu will also take its inspiration from there. Open for dinner during the week and brunch on weekends, expect savoury tart tatins, pigs’ head pasta and pot-cooked bread with flavoured butters.


Opening date: 12 January 2018


Founders/directors:  Amy Corbin and Patrick Williams


Address: 119 Queens Road, Peckham, London SE15 2EZ

GB Pizza Co

Despite (or perhaps because of) the clean eating fad, carb-heavy restaurants are on the rise again. The GB Pizza Co, has opened a site in Didsbury, with a view to expanding further in the next two years. The company, started by ex-journalist Lisa Richards and chef/writer Rachel Seed, emphasises using local ingredients along with classic dough and tomato sauce recipes. The 45-cover casual restaurant, operated by Grant Ashdown, will focus on no-frills self-service


Opening date: Now open


Founders/directors: Lisa Richards and chef/writer Rachel Seed


Covers: 45


Address: 113 Lapwing Lane, Didsbury, Manchester.

City Road gets its flame on this week with the launch of Nuala, a first site for Niall Davidson (late of Chiltern Firehouse, St John Bread and Wine). The bistro will seat 75, with a curved concrete bar and open fireplace; chef Colin McSherry (Fat Duck, Dinner by Heston) will be putting clams, spider crab, steaks and suckling pig on the open fire, while Honey Spencer, previously at Noma Mexico, will choose the wines. There will be Irish music and the open fire staying lit late – sounds like cold-weather comfort, to be enjoyed with a bone marrow doughnut.


Opening date: November 2017


Founders/directors: Niall Davidson


Covers: 75-seat 


Address: 70-74 City Road, London EC1

The Blue Posts

Big news for Soho – the long-neglected Blue Posts on Rupert Street is coming back to life. Now part of the Palomar stable, the famous pub (which has been there since 1739) will re-open, after a lot of TLC, to offer an airy ground-floor drinking space and a cosy first-floor cocktail bar called The Mulwray. Both will have bar food created by head chef Nacho Pinilla, but there will also be a rather intriguing room in the newly dug-out basement – Evelyn's Table – where a sole counter will seat eleven, with food passed direct from chefs to diner over the counter. The Blue Posts opens on 5 December.


Opening date: 5 December


Founders/directors: The people behind The Palomar and The Barbary 


Head Chef: Nacho Pinilla

A new Japanese restaurant on Charlotte Street has one major selling point – the head chef is formerly of Chisou, the de-facto canteen for Conde Nast’s glossy posse. Dham Kodituwakku (Kodi) has 30 years’ experience in total, which means Kazu’s menu promises exemplary isakaya – classics from black cod to rock shrimp tempura to wagyu all appear. Kazu is planned to open in early December.


Opening date: Early December


Founders/directors:  Dham Kodituwakku


Address: Charlotte Street






Over Under

A grilled feta and mozzarella sandwich? Consider us interested… The arrival of Kiwi coffee experts Over Under in the courtyard of the Ham Yard Hotel is welcome news not just because their brews are typically brilliant (including a turmeric latte) but their quick-hit dishes are just right for the west end, and prepared by a chef formerly of Ottolenghi and Chez Panisse, no less. The café, also in Earls Court, is cashless too, to speed things up.


Opening date: Now open


Founders/directors: Executive chef Connie Grossman and Ed Barry



 Address: Ham Yard, London W1D 7DT

The secret of the award-winning fried chicken at Butchies is, apparently, a pressure cooker imported from the US and posh poultry from a Somerset farm. From the end of this month diners will get the benefit of a full menu in their first permanent site, on Rivington Street. Founders Garrett and Emer FitzGerald will offer six different fried chicken sandwiches at an ‘haute’ version of our city’s beloved chicken shops, along with wings, craft beers and cold brew coffees.



Opening date: Late November


Founders/directors: Garrett and Emer FitzGerald


Address: 79-81 Broadway Market, London E8 4PH

Wright Brothers

Seafood and oyster specialists Wright Brothers are set to open the doors to their fifth site, on 11th December 2017, at the iconic Grade II* listed Battersea Power Station by the River Thames.

Group Head Chef Richard Kirkwood has created some exciting new dishes bespoke to Battersea including his take on the classic ‘eclade de moules’ - pine roasted mussels, as well as an indulgent roast shellfish platter and grilled Galician octopus with ajo blanco and smoked jalapeño chilli oil. The menu will introduce more meat options cooked in the Josper oven, including East Sussex collar of pork with chimichurri and Bannockburn beef on the bone alongside Wright Brothers renowned seafood classics


Opening date: 11th December

A greenhouse in the City? Not quite, but new bar and restaurant Broadleaf will have something of the Victorian glasshouse to its design, courtesy of Russell Sage Studio (think ironwork and botanical prints). The November opening will offer, like the other sites in the ETM stable, modern British food as well as a large variety of beers. Stone-throwing not encouraged, we imagine.


Opening date: November 2017


Founders/directors: ETM group

EKTE Nordic Kitchen

Last call for openings in the Bloomberg Arcade! The stellar line up of the now-open centre is completed with EKTE Nordic Kitchen, a new Norwegian restaurant. It won’t open till April, but the 60-seater space sounds tailor-made for the City – swish Scandi sandwiches and pastries, and healthy lunch offerings. The man behind it, Danish-born restaurateur Soren Jessen, knows the market – he previously launched 1 Lombard Street.


Opening date: April 2018


Founders/directors: Soren Jesse


Covers: 60-seater space 


Address: 2-8 Bloomberg Arcade, London EC4N 8AR




Greyhound Café

Berners Street meets Bangkok with the launch of the Greyhound Café in January. The popular Thai brand (fashion and food) already has 17 branches but this is the first outside Asia; it will have a similar bright décor, sounds and menu. Expect ‘angry pasta’, ‘complicated noodles’ and other large and small plates inspired by, says founder Bhanu Inkawat, everything from foreign travels to midnight fridge raids. Intriguing.


Opening date: Now open


Founders/directors: Bhanu Inkawat

Granary Square Brasserie

It takes someone with quite some profile to take on the large site that was Grain Store at King's Cross, so it’s not surprising that it will become part of the swiftly expanding Ivy Collection. Conscious of being at the axis of office workers and pleasure seekers, the Granary Square Brasserie will have both DJs as a regular fixture and large spaces where visitors can hold informal meetings. Breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner are on offer in the 250-seat space, which opens on 6 December.


Opening date: December 6


Founders/directors: The team behind The Ivy Collection


Covers: 250 seat space


Address: Granary Square, 1-3 Stable Street, King’s Cross, London N1C 4AB

The Coach Makers Arms

Cubitt House has a good array of independent pubs in smart corners of London, now joined by new opening The Coach Makers Arms on Marylebone Lane. We say new, the actual pub has been there for 140 years but has will now offer smart pub food in a 50-seater first-floor dining room as well as craft beers and more from a bar on each of the three floors. The Coach Makers Arms opens in early December, just in time for the area’s hangry Christmas shoppers.


Opening date: December 2017


Executive Chef: Leigh Hartnett


Address: 88 Marylebone Lane, London W1U 2PY


Website: thecoachmakersarms.co.uk



A Wong

The restaurant line-up at Bloomberg Arcade just keeps getting stronger with the news that A Wong will open there in spring next year. The hugely popular (and newly Michelin-starred) Victoria site has been open since 2012; the second branch will be more casual all-day dining, still along Andrew Wong’s modern classic Chinese ideas. Chef-patron Wong says “I’ve been considering the idea of somewhere we would be able to open all day for a while. When the opportunity for the Bloomberg Arcade came along, we knew it would be perfect.”.


Opening date: Spring 2018


Founders/directors: Chef-patron Andrew Wong 


Address: Bloomberg Arcade, 3 Queen Victoria Street, City, London EC2R

Taking inspiration from its namesake, Pufferfish will offer an enticing menu from world class Head Chef Sakorn Somboon. Exotic delicacies and theatrical touches include sushi hand seared tableside with a blowtorch. A Raw Bar and classic Mahiki touches will ensure Pufferfish transports diners to a Polynesian Paradise. Serving dinner in the heart of Kensington Wednesdays to Sundays.


Opening date: Now open

184 Green + Grill

Not many of CODE’s readers may remember 192, a classic Portobello wine bar that in its day was ‘the’ place to hang out, and at different points had Alastair Little, Rowley Leigh and Rose Gray in the kitchen. It’s long gone, but a new independent restaurant just along the (Kensington Park) road gives it a nod with its name, 184. From next month, mother and son operators Alex Giri and Oscar Harris will offer wood-fire grilled meat and fish, but (as the sub-name suggests) also plenty of plant-based dishes – a necessity in health-conscious Notting Hill.


Opening date: November 2017


Founders/directors:  Alex Giri and her son Oscar Harris


Address:  184 Kensington Park Road, London W11 2ES




The Prince

Meanwhile further west, another cluster of food offerings piques our interest. Right opposite the tube station is West Brompton Crossing, where from 15 November you’ll be able to choose between Patty & Bun, Mam, The Begging Bowl and Rabbit, two bars and a secret garden too. The self-described “epicurean avenue” goes under the group name of The Prince and is from the Pergola people, whose clever idea is that each restaurant is linked at its back to the garden, so you can eat and drink contentedly off the street.


Opening date:  15 November


Founders/directors: The Pergola team 


Address:  14 Lillie Rd London SW6 1TT

CODE thought St James’s Market was full, but the news that Ramael Scully, late of Nopi, is opening his eponymous restaurant proves there’s room for one more, when it’s of this pedigree. As you’d expect from one of Yotam Ottolenghi’s head chefs - and trusted co-author – the food will be eclectic. In fact Scully’s heritage is Chinese, Indian, Balinese and Irish, so it’s no wonder he promises a larder of interesting spices, pickles and produce. We’ll have to wait until the new year for Scully to open.


Opening date:  Early 2018


Founders/directors: Ramael Scully


Address: 4 St James's Market St. James’s London SW1Y 4QU




Bombay Bustle

This November Samyukta Nair and Rohit Ghai, Co-Founder and Executive Chef of Mayfair’s Michelin-starred Jamavar, will launch their new restaurant, Bombay Bustle on Maddox Street. Inspired by the Dabbawalas, the institution of men who use Mumbai’s famed local railway to deliver home cooked meals across the city, Bombay Bustle will pay homage to the culture and people, whose expanse of origins from across India have influenced its culinary history.


Opening date: Now Open

Cinnamon Kitchen

Vivek Singh has a habit of opening restaurants in historic buildings, so it’s perhaps no surprise that the next ‘Cinnamon’ outpost will be in Battersea Power Station. Cinnamon Kitchen Battersea is due to open in late November, offering brunch, lunch and dinner with a suitably industrial décor and terrace seats overlooking the Thames. Residents of the area will be especially pleased that the bar will be at the heart of the operation, as well as food and drink deliveries for those times the brutalist chic of the power station is too much.


Opening date: Late November 2017

Harry's Dolci

Knightsbridge is the location for a new restaurant from Caprice Holdings which despite the name, is not just for puddings (although we bet the tiramisu, panna cotta and gelato cannoli will be top notch). Situated on Basil Street, Harry’s Dolci is a spin-off from Harry’s Bar in Mayfair, itself based on the Venice original – and will be open all day from breakfast, with a menu of Italian classics, all served in a 1950s-inspired interior. Harry's Dolci is due to open on 6 December. 


Opening date:6 December


Founders/directors: Richard Caring, Caprice Holdings


Address:  27 – 31 Basil Street, London SW3 1BB


Website: harrysdolci.com


Flour & Grape

Bermondsey will see Flour & Grape open later this month. It’s a pared-down pasta-only menu from the head chef and GM of Antico, so expect good-quality Italian comfort food (itself comforting news for Bermondsey folk missing now-closed Antico). The grape comes in with a strong list of Italian-only wines but if you’re not in the market for a leisurely carb’n’booze lunch, there will also be a grab-and-go pasta bar.


Opening date: Open Now

The Kitchens

Old Spitalfields Market has announced the ten operators who will open The Kitchens, at the centre of the revamped site. These are permanent, full restaurant kitchens and mark the first phase of a total refurbishment of the old market, which will eventually have more than 100 food and drink offerings. Big names in The Kitchens include Breddos Tacos (their Kingly Street branch only opened on Saturday), Berber & Q, Dumpling Shack, Brighton favourite Flank and a new idea from Brilliant Corners, called Thousand Knives. The Kitchens open on Friday.

Koya in the City

The Bloomberg Arcade food hub just gets better and better. Latest to join the line-up is Koya, as Shuko Oda and John Devitt add a City outpost to their Soho bar. There will be Japanese breakfasts from 7am (we’re intrigued by the English Breakfast Udon) and the famous chalkboard specials each day, with speedy lunches too, aimed at the office workers in the area. Diners will have to be as canny as the Soho crowd, though, because the 60-seater will not take reservations.


Opening date: late November


Founders/directors: John Devitt and Shuko Oda of Sanuki Ltd


Design: collaboration between Team Koya and Takamasa Kikuchi.

Gilly’s Fry Bar

A simple menu and a good neighbourhood location – chef Neil Gill’s new venture, Gilly’s Fry Bar, sounds like a winner. The fish’n’chips-meets-tempura idea means soft shell crab, shitake, mackerel, onions, wings and more get the fryer treatment. Sides range from pickled radish to that chip-shop classic, scraps.
