    Now that the weather's not quite so hellish, it feels safe again to talk about new alfresco options in town. Over in Stratford the restaurant group D&D (think German Gymnasium, Bluebird, 14 Hills) has just opened a pop up outdoors restaurant.

    Set in Endeavour Square, the summery spot is hoping to bring the flavour of the Alps to East London. It's a very tight menu as you can see:

    A Hot Dinners exclusive

    It's fair to say chefs and restaurateurs are being pretty cunning when it comes to finding ways to ensure they can reopen on 12 April. Take Tom Kerridge for example. His restaurant, Kerridge's Bar and Grill, at the Corinthia London, doesn't have any outside space. But, as if by magic, the hotel's managed to conjure some out of thin air.

    To that end, Kerridge's
