    When EVERYONE you know is raving about a particular supperclub, and you haven't been, you know it's time to get in the loop. We had heard a lot about Tata Eatery. They're regulars at Druid St and also did a hugely successful rice tasting menu collaborating with Matt Chatfield from The Cornwall Project last year at the Newman Arms.

    Well Meng and Ana - along with sake sommelier Elyse Li are heading back to the Newman Arms for a Saturday residency in March.

    We're suckers for a good pop-up and the latest, interesting venture launching in London is taking over the Canvas Cafe just off Brick Lane for its opening night.

    The Potlatch has several interesting folk involved. It's the brainchild of Nick Gilkinson - a manager with D&D London and part of the team that's just opened The German Gymnasium in King’s Cross. In the kitchen is former Clove Club chef, Jonathan Williams and his four course menu for the pop-up's first

    It may be cold enough to freeze the proverbial balls of a brass monkey out there, but if you are looking for some alfresco action this winter, then head to Soho. Sipsmith gins are going to be serving gin-laced winter drinks up on the Ham Yard Hotel’s hidden roof terrace from the end of January until mid-February.

    One of the chefs doing great things in Paris at the moment is Bertrand Grébaut whose places Septime and Clamato have turned the city's restaurant scene on its head over the past few years - Septime's currently no 57 in the World's 50 Best Restaurants List. The good news for anyone who hasn't the time (or funds) to travel all the way across to France to try his food is that Grébaut is heading to London for a two day residency at Lyle's in Shoreditch. He'll be putting together

    Everyone's favourite oddball events organisers Bompas & Parr are at it again and this time they've taken their antics up to the top of The Shard. The duo are behind The Height of Winter, which has transformed The View from The Shard into an "enchanting, sensory winter experience".

    What that means in practice is that they've taken over the open-air Level 72 Skydeck, adding super-scaled crystals, gem-studded snow dunes, glowing crystal benches, a

    This rather fine looking shellfish dish is the crab burger from Claw. And if just gazing at that photo makes you fancy it half as much as we do right now, you'll be wanting to know that the streetfood folk behind it have just taken residency at The Three Compasses in Dalston.

    From this week until the end of January they'll be serving up a mainly crab-based menu with all their crab coming from Start Bay in Devon.

    There'll be five burgers on offer

    There's always room in Hot Dinners' lives for some crazy pop-up shenanigans in the run up to Christmas and B.I.B sounds right up our street. This Dalston spot will be taking over Brunswick East coffee in Dalston from 6pm every Wednesday to Saturday this November. And the B.I.B? Well that stands for Bag in Box. Yes this is a natural wine box pop-up. It couldn't be more East London if it tried.
