  • panzer's sushi pop up

    If you're stretching your legs in Regent's Park this weekend why not treat yourself, after your state prescribed exercise, and head north of the park to St John's Wood deli Panzer's.

    Why? Well, because all weekend their in-store sushi bar, which is run by the modern sushi restaurant Sushi Atelier, is going to be serving up hand rolls from a pop-up stall.

  • ASAP Pizza returns to Flor or a regular Sunday pop-up

    Before the main restaurant returned after the lockdown, Flor's head chef Pamela Yung tried something new, ASAP pizza, their own take on a pizzeria with a heavy focus on quality produce and heritage British wheats.

    It'll be the first time that Flor opens on a Sunday and the whole menu will be an
