Carousel, which knows a thing or two about organising top residencies in its airy Marylebone venue, has just announced its line up of guest chefs for the New Year.
First up, from 4-13 January, its Romy Gill, who’ll be working together with Carousel’s in-house head chef Ollie Templeton to whip up a set menu packed with "West Bengal meets West Country dishes", so expect plates like spicy crab on sourdough with
Simon Rogan's Roganic returns to the same street as the original, but this time as a permanent fixture.
The people behind pubs like The Thomas Cubitt have taken over this 140-year-old pub for a full renovation. Expect a new British menu, an underground cocktail bar and more.
Yes, you read that right - and you can see from the picture above - there's a bar in Paris where the bartenders serve drinks in their pants. While we're tempted to write something about "those crazy French" at this point, we should also point out that Le Calbar also gets rave reviews for the drinks too.
And now those drinks - and those pants - are coming to London where they're popping up for one
One of Soho's most popular restaurants is getting a sibling as Hoppers comes to Marylebone. Expect this second place to be much larger than the first too.

Coming to Marylebone this week is the next step of Fucina as it opens its Panetteria - an organic deli and bakery. It's headed up by ex-Princi Head Baker Massimiliano Porta and you can expect:
Fans of French baking and artisan bread will be happy to know that Eric Kayser, French baker and entrepreneur extraordinaire, will be opening a new restaurant and bakery on the suitably-named Baker Street.
Although you may have spotted Maison Kaysers while abroad (there are over 100 other branches, including Paris, New York and Hong Kong) it’ll be the first time one’s come to the UK.
We’re yet to see a menu, but
Vegetarians can sometimes get the raw end of the carrot stick when it comes to brunch, which can be pretty focused on stuff like sausages and bacon. Cause to celebrate then, that London veggie institution The Gate is bringing its award-winning blend of Indo-Iraqi Jewish cuisine to Marylebone. And yes - they’ll be open for breakfast.
It’s a nicely imaginative selection - scrambled tofu with smoky shiitake mushrooms, bagels with avocado and organic poached eggs,

There's a new restaurant from Kurt Zdesar on the way - he's behind Chotto Matte and Black Roe - and this time he's opening an Italian restaurant with Stefano Stecca. Stecca has worked with Locatelli and Novikov and the menu will be based on recipes from his childhood (with a bit of a modern twist).
That Italian menu will have pasta handmade on-site and stone-baked pizza from a wood-fired oven. They're
Yosma is a mayhene - which means a sort of Turkish gastropub - we went to check it out
Brunch continues to be a Big Thing in London restaurants, so the arrival of a new all-day brunch spot should go down very well. Over Easy is from the same people behind Opium and Salvador and Amanda and is opening just around the corner from Selfridges. So it'll be a handy shopping retreat.
On that brunch-heavy menu will be:

This summer there's going to be meyhane in Marylebone. Nope that's not a typo. Apparently, a meyhane is a Turkish tavern - which is what Yosma, a new mangal and raki bar in Marylebone is basing itself on. And it's got some rather interesting folk involved.
