    Last year, Mãos in Shoreditch won a coveted Michelin star, but just a few months later one of its founders Nuno Mendes, announced that he was leaving. Since then, even more has changed with the very notion of close communal dining around a single table (a signature of Maos) knocked to the kerb in the era of social distancing.

    Now there's a maximum of eight diners allowed, with four tables of two replacing

    Leroy in Shoreditch is now all about chicken with Royale

    Over the past few weeks, we've seen the return of restaurants to London (albeit in collection or delivery form) turn from a slow trickle into something of a torrent. And as restaurants have worked out what they're able to do - a couple of distinct camps are appearing. Either they try to deliver as close to the restaurant experience as possible - or they pivot to something else during the lockdown.
