There are a new crop of restauranteurs serving up fresh food. Let’s see what has been going on in London across 5 new tantalising spots…

Covid-19 undeniably dealt the restaurant trade in our capital city a tremendous blow. Closures have been rife and now, more than ever, restaurants have had to adapt and be creative to remain viable and trading. Still, there are a new crop of restauranteurs boldly taking on new leases and serving up fresh food for a new world. Let’s see what has been going on in London across 5 new tantalising spots…

1. The Pem in Westminster – link here

The Pem. Link here.

Named after the prolific suffragette Emily Wilding Davison (who had the affectionate nickname ‘Pem’) The Pem is a luxurious plum coloured restaurant in Westminster. Chef Sally Abés will be powered and inspired by Davison’s values of equal rights as she works to transform seasonal British produce into wonderful main dishes like Norfolk Poussin and Roast John Dory.

Open now.

Where? The Pem, Conrad, London, St. James, 22-28 Broadway, Westminster, SW1H0BH.

2. Hackney Cotorie in Hackney – link here

Duo Anthony Lyon and Kelvin opened Hackney Cotorie on the 16th July. Described as a ‘modern warehouse brasserie, wine bar and shop’ there is a lot going on. Serving up excellent looking weekend brunches on their terrace and takeaway coffees for passer-by’s, I think we will need to investigate Cotorie further…

Open now.

Where? 230 Dalston Ln, London E8 1LA

4. Bad Vegan in Camden – link here

Bad Vegan food. Link here.

Serial cookbook author, TV personality and chef, Tom Kerridge is a busy man. Partnered up with events pro Mark Emms, Bad Vegan opened in Camden’s new shipping-container-styled Buck Street Market on June 24th. With a ‘no judgements’ tagline, the site will feature a predominately vegan menu with some standout non-vegan options. We look forward to trying the Taternator (wrap), Streetdough flatbreads and especially the Cauliflyer, with its sweet chilli cauliflower florets. Yum.

Open now.

Where? Buck Street Market, 198 Camden High St, London NW1 8QP

5. Ave Mario in Covent Garden – link here

Ave Mario in all of its Negroni-colour splendour. Link here.

Ave Mario is a gargantuan new Italian ‘pizza arena’ that amazingly, can seat 295 diners on Covent Garden’s Henrietta Street. Across the rooms and two terraces, you can chow down on chef Andrew Zambrano’s Florence orientated pizza and pasta dishes. We’re definitely stopping by for the ‘asking for truffle’ pizza which is adorned with crème fraiche, mozzarella, black garlic crème and, you guessed it - black truffle. And the gelato tower cake that’s gone viral on Instagram?

Open now.

Where? 15 Henrietta St, London WC2E 8QG.
