    Fucina's Panetteria Italian deli is about to open

    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:

    • Bread and pastries - five different breads, using stoneground, wholemeal naturally slow-fermented dough
    • Sanwiches made with meat from the Fucina wood-fired pit - and breakfast pizzas too (pictured
  • Maison Kayser’s artisan bakery comes to London at Baker Street

    Maison Kayser’s artisan bakery to come to Baker Street

    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

  • Veggies rejoice: The Gate’s new Marylebone branch to offer breakfast

    gate eggs

    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,

    Updated 4/10/16 with soft launch details

    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

  • Over Easy all-day-brunch comes to Marylebone

    Over Easy all-day-brunch comes to Marylebone

    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:

    • Sweetcorn Doughnuts with Jalapeño Jelly (£3)
    • Baked Eggs - spiced tomato ragout,
  • Yosma mangal and raki bar is bringing meyhane vibes to Marylebone


    Updated 11/8/16 with soft launch details. 

    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.

    Executive chef Hus Vedat is of Turkish heritage. He comes here via Barbecoa and the Caxton Grill and was in the launch team for Ceviche Old Street. His menu

    Updated 12pm 

    A surprising number of you didn't actually twig that this was our April Fool this year. We've had people contacting us about PR, wondering about soft launch dates - you name it. So if anyone's looking for a new business idea, this one's free!

    Here at Hot Dinners we've pretty much lost count of the press releases we've had in where a restaurant's menu promises to

  • The Harcourt European restaurant with Nordic influences opening in Marylebone


    Updated 24/3/16 with soft launch details

    The Harcourt from Andrew Endean (from Hotel du Vin and Malmaison) will be a new European restaurant with more than a nod towards Nordic Cuisine. And that's a nod to its past in the guise of the Harcourt Arms.

    In the kitchen is head chef Kimmo Makkonen, who’s pulling together an all-day dining menu “with Scandinavian elements”. Some of those include Swedish afternoon “Fika” (coffee break) and more. Much of the

  • Sourced Market is coming to Marylebone


    Updated 16/3/16 with news on the soft launch

    One of the best things about St Pancras station is definitely Sourced Market which has fuelled many of Hot Dinners' trips from that station. And now we hear that following a successful Crowdcube campaign, it's going to be opening two new shops in Marylebone and Victoria next year.

    The stores will stock more than 100 small artisan food and drink suppliers from across the country including

  • Bernardi's launch a weekend brunch with weekday breakfasts planned

    bernardi breakfast

    There's a new breakfast spot in town. Bernardi's in Marylebone has just launched their breakfast menu (and weekend brunch) and it does look rather enticing.

    The brunch menu, which launched this weekend, features the now ubiquitous bottomless Prosecco and Bloody Marys (£16 per person) all day Saturday and Sunday. But what's new is the breakfast N’duja, egg & basil pizette (£8) and their Full Italian – a homemade veal, pork and chilli sausage

  • Nuno Mendes puts a Christmas treat on the menu at Chiltern Firehouse


    If you hadn't already made plans to hit Chiltern Firehouse between now and Christmas, then here's a solid reason why you should. Nuno Mendes has a sensational sounding new snack on the menu. Made from the same dough as his famous crab doughnuts, the braised short rib and truffle roasted buns go on the restaurant menu after Thanksgiving.

    As Nuno explains; "The bun and its filling connects several cultures and is personally connected with my own voyage. Bun or Bao

    The Ivy continues to grow with a new Ivy Café for Marylebone

    The Ivy has had a pretty busy past year. Not only have they revamped their original restaurant to great acclaim, but they also opened the Ivy Market Grill and the Ivy Chelsea Garden. And now there's a third cafe on the way with the Ivy Cafe in Marylebone. It's notable that there's no specific area named in the restaurant title - so we would not be at all surprised to see a lot more of the cafés appear soon (although next
