The Opera Tavern relaunches, going back to basics

22/7/19 - updated with soft launch details.

Originally opened back in 2011, The Opera Tavern was an instant hit. Back in the day when Covent Garden wasn't exactly blessed with decent places to eat, an actually-good restaurant was welcomed with open arms. Now, it's about to get a whole new look.

The original Dishoom is about to get a lot bigger

As it reaches its 10th anniversary, Dishoom is going back to the beginning, with a big change to its original Covent Garden restaurant. The smallest of the group, it's about to get a lot bigger as they've taken over the space left behind by the now-closed Jamie's Italian next door.
