New Openings
Bright

The team behind P. Franco will take over the space in London Fields that was until recently Ellory in May 2018. The kitchen will be headed by William Gleave and Guiseppe Belvedere. There will be a more expansive kitchen than P. Franco's two rings and a focus on seasonal food, and pasta. 

 

Opening date: May 2018

 

Founders: Liam Kelleher and James Noble

 

Address:  1 Westgate St, London E8 3RL

 

Website: brightrestaurant.co.uk

Sam and Sam Clark will open Casa Moro in Spring 2018 in Hackney Wick. It will include a private dining and event space and an outside catering arm. The East London venue is launching with a Moro Mangal dinner for which tickets are available, on 1 and 2 June.

 

Opening date: May 2018

 

Founders: Sam & Sam Clark

 

Address:  TBC

 

Website: moro.co.uk/casamoro/private-dining-room-space-in-hackney-wick/

 


Kyseri

Oklava founders Laura Christie and Selin Kiazim are launching their second site in May. Kyseri, on Grafton Way near Tottenham Court Road, will focus on the Turkish take on pasta, with Kiazim showing her expertise in both familiar dishes such as manti and more unusual ones. Christie, founder of Islington’s Linden Stores will create an expansive Middle Eastern wine list too.

 

Opening date: May 2018

 

Founders: Laura Christie and Selin Kiazim

 

Address: 64 Grafton Way, London W1T 5DN

 

Website: kyseri.co.uk


St Leonard's

Jackson Boxer and Andrew Clarke will open St Leonard’s in Shoreditch, a 70-cover restaurant radiating out from an open fire, with what they call earthy, rustic dishes, from snacks to whole roast duck, with hints of the cooking style of south-west France.

 

Opening date: May 2018

 

Founders: Jackson Boxer and Andrew Clarke

 

Address: 70 Leonard Street, London EC2A 4QX

 

Website: TBC


Bancone

Chef Louis Korovilas will open Bancone at the beginning of May. Louis previously worked at Locanda Locatelli and Pied à Terre and will be offering seasonal arancini and a variety of slow-cooked ragùs, including lamb neck and kid goat, with prices around £9-£12 mark.

 

Opening date: May 2018

 

Founders: Louis Korovilas 

 

Address:  39 William IV Street, London, WC2N 4DD

 

Website: bancone.co.uk


Hans' Bar & Grill

Hans' Bar and Grill will open this Spring in Chelsea, consisting of an all-day restaurant with a 195 bins wine list. Hans’ Bar & Grill is named not for its head chef – Adam England, late of Le Pont de la Tour – but for Hans Sloane, the man who brought cocoa to Britain. So chocolate is very much on the menu at this airy, light 106-cover space tucked away on Pavilion Road, as well as eggs benedict, veal carpaccio and confit duck. It’s from the same team as Chewton Glen and 11 Cadogan Gardens.

 

Opening date: Spring 2018

 

Founders: Adam England & Simon Smith

 

Address: 164 Pavilion Road, London, SW1X 0BP

 

Website: 11cadogangardens.com


The Wolseley at Bicester Village

Bicester Village will be the location for Corbin & King’s very first site outside London later this spring. Although CODE is aware that the founders of The Wolseley et al have been keen to expand, the company has taken its time to find the right place for an all-day cafe (with food-to-go and a shop, we hear).

 

Opening date: Spring 2018

 

Founders: Chris Corbin & Jeremy King

 

Address:  50 Pingle Dr, Bicester OX26 6WD

 

Website: corbinandking.com


Cora Pearl

The team behind Kitty Fisher’s have announced the name and location of their second restaurant. Cora Pearl, on Henrietta Street in Covent Garden, will open in spring and is named (like its sister restaurant) after a society courtesan. And rather like Kitty Fisher’s it’s a petite space over two floors, with 60 covers, and a kitchen to be led by George Barson (above), who’s been head chef at the original Shepherd Market restaurant for a year.

 

Opening date: Spring 2018

 

Founders: Tom Mullion, Tim Steel and Oliver Milburn

 

Head Chef: George Barson

 

Covers: 60

 

Address: 30 Henrietta Street, London WC2E 8NA

 

 


Kricket

Big news for the White City Television Centre residential and retail development in west London. The latest restaurant to join the line up – which includes Homeslice, Patty & Bun and Bluebird – is a second site for Indian favourite Kricket. At 3,600 sq ft and 140 covers, it’ll be the biggest space yet for founders Will Bowlby and Rik Campbell, who will bring their modern dishes that are such a hit at the Soho branch (and before that in Pop Brixton) to a space that includes an open kitchen, cocktail bar and outdoor terrace. And the best news? This Kricket, which will open in summer, will take reservations.

 

Opening date: Summer 2018

 

Founders: Will Bowlby and Rik Campbell

 

Address:  Television Centre, 89 Wood Lane, W12 8FA

 

Website: kricket.co.uk


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

 

 

 


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
