Right now, we can't think of anything we'd like more than to perch up at the marble counter at Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill with a glass of fizz and oysters being shucked in front of us.

Slowly but surely, London's department stores are beginning to emerge from Lockdown. A few weeks back we had Selfridges reopening their food hall. This morning it's the turn of Piccadilly's Fortnum & Mason.

So this is a rather interesting idea. The team behind Hide Restaurant and Hedonism Wines are taking the Hide concept literally just down the road on Piccadilly to the Burlington Arcade for a winter popup.
They'll be throwing open the doors to Hideaway shop and cafe on 19 November - so this will be somewhere to try chef Ollie Dabbous' food as well as stock up on your Christmas shopping.
The look and feel will apparently be 'Parisian bistro'. They'll

XU, the Taiwanese restaurant from the Bao team, has had a big focus on its traditional teas since opening but now it's putting them front and centre. During the daytime this summer (from 12-5pm) the ground floor level of the restaurant will be given over to focus on tea, offering everything from a single cup to a full on traditional tea ceremony, all headed up by the in-house tea master.
For the full Afternoon Tea Ceremony (£39), you can try a range of Taiwanese teas,

The Hotel Cafe Royal has created a brand new first-floor restaurant - and has recruited French chef Laurent Tourondel (who's big in the States) to look after it.
Open barely more than a week and already the recipient of a lovely review in The Standard, Hide restaurant on Piccadilly - a joint venture between could-he-be-any-bigger chef Ollie Dabous and the folks at Hedonism Wines - is probably going to be the restaurant you hear most about over the
