Opening today in Hoxton (where Monty's Deli used to be) is a new bar and kitchen (and events space) from Yann Florio, who was a finalist in MasterChef: The professionals last year (and previously a private chef). The menu is planned to be seasonal and regularly changing, with a focus on innovation. And if you liked what you saw on MasterChef, there will be regular events with a tasting menu
This Hoxton restaurant is manned by a team of both Professional and student chefs, with a view of getting new people into the business. And feeding you, of course.
The founder behind Red Dog Saloon is opening a restaurant devoted to fiery southern chicken.
Peckham’s The Begging Bowl is on the move for November, with the restaurant to close for refurbishment and re-locate north of the river temporarily. Having launched six years ago, when it quickly got a reputation as one of London’s best Thai restaurants, co-founder Jane Alty says that the time is right to give the space a spruce up and
It's a two for one at this new Hoxton restaurant where you can try the Filipino take on ceviche and a menu of artisan ice-creams served in young coconut shells.
London already has a load of new terraces and outside spaces this summer, but Bourne and Hollingsworth have several killer USPs that they're banking on to make their new Hoxton summer experience, Beautiful Allotment, a must-visit. To start with, guests who book their summer countryside takeover of the gardens at The Geffrye Museum will be able to kick things in proper Countryfile style, getting picked up in a tractor pulling a vintage trailer complete
Adam Handling's empire is expanding still further. Hard on the heels of the news that he'll be running the food side of things at the Belmond Cadogan Hotel, now we hear that his first restaurant Frog E1 is upping sticks and moving to Hoxton.

Picture the scenario: you've been given the job of booking a restaurant to celebrate someone's birthday. But you're looking for something a little different - something to make the whole evening stand out. Well, we think we may have found what you're looking for.
Orange Buffalo at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen have ditched the traditional cake for birthday celebrations and replaced it with... a chicken wing birthday cake.

If you want the best egg pasta in Italy, so they say, you have to go to the Emilia Romagna region where it was created. But if you can’t *quite* justify getting on a plane yet then Hoxton Square’s new Italian Via Emilia looks like the next best thing, and in traditional Italian style, they’re keeping it ultra simple with eight pastas, one pudding and a wine list that’s short but sweet.

The grounds of the museum will be transformed into, and we quote, “cheese nirvana” during the two-day festival, which will see 20 cheesemakers, cheesemongers and traders out in force. It’ll be the first time the festival has moved from Camden Market, where it launched
There’s something deeply enjoyable about halloumi, from the weirdly pleasing squeaking noise to the overwhelming salt hit, and of course, the knowledge that you’re essentially just eating a pile of cheese. Plus, it just looks so good on camera - you could hardly swing a cat on street food Instagram this summer without hitting a flat-lay of breaded-halloumi fries.
Cocktail bar blends seamlessly with restaurant - we Test Drive Mr Lyan's Cub.
“We want to keep pushing boundaries,” said Mr Lyan about his new concept bar and restaurant.

Summing it all up: With an emphasis on animal-free and gluten-free dining, plus a few burger and craft beers on tap, graffiti and a gallery, Number 90 Bar & Kitchen does a good job of transplanting a slice of of ultra-hip Berlin culture onto Hoxton Street, craft beers and all.
