  • German Gymnasium gets ready to open in King's Cross from D&D

    Updated 14/10/15 with opening date

    No, it's not some kind of new fitness craze, this is the latest restaurant from D&D that's opening in King's Cross. It's absolutely huge, as anyone who crosses between St Pancras and King's Cross will tell you (it's the building that was completely covered up until recently) and promises to be D&D's biggest restaurant yet.

    Yes, it used to be a

    Londoners prepare yourself - hitting Shaftesbury Avenue this month is what promises to be the perfect fusion between two of the city's current food obsessions - burger and bao. Pho & Bun is the brainchild of Holborn restaurant Viet Eat's owner Andy Le. The new Vietnamese spot will focus on Pho and their steamed milky bun burger.

    And while the rest of the dishes all sound lovely - rare sirloin beef pho, summer roll with tiger

  • kiosk

    Looks like Paddington just got an interesting place to grab a morning coffee or lunchtime snack. Kioskafé, a newsstand and coffee bar opened last week - it's a new project from the folk behind Monocle. Inspired by the city-street kiosks of Europe, this teeny 80 sq m space will sell an amazing selection of magazines and newspapers and travel essentials. Think part great café, part street kiosk with some tables outside if you want to linger.

    For breakfast there'll be

  • 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.
