Asparagus dishes hitting London's restaurants this spring

Don't you just love this time of year? When London's larders fill with ultra seasonal produce from wild garlic to gulls eggs and asparagus. We've been trawling some of London's chef and restaurant Instagram and Twitter accounts for lovely pictures of new asparagus dishes hitting London tables right about now for your delectation
