Summer is the perfect time to start a new fling, and no one ever said it couldn’t be with a restaurant. So here are four summer restaurant openings that we’re currently vibing with.
Tom Oldroyd has made a pretty big name for himself in the London food scene. If you haven’t heard of Polpo, you need more foodie friends. As the former Chef Director for the Polpo group, Oldroyd saw immense success with the expansion to six branches. His new restaurant by no surprise is named Oldroyd and has a small yet powerful menu. The small plates are inspired by French, Spanish and Italian cuisines with items like paella of squid, rabbit and broad beans. It’s an intimate setting with only a few seats perfect for close conversation.
344 Upper Street
Estiatorio Milos has already taken over the Montreal, New York, Miami, Las Vegas and Athens food scene before its much-anticipated London location. The concept and menu will mainly remain the same featuring specialties in seafood and a Mediterranean influence throughout. You can expect a two-floor stylish restaurant with a raw seafood bar, cocktail bar and designs by owner Costas Spiliadis. It’s all the rage.
1 Regent Street
Salt & Honey
Welcome to Salt & Honey, your new favorite neighborhood bistro. It’s prime location next to Selfridges and Hyde Park is only one of the reasons this eatery is awesome. Their menu consists of delicious dishes like poached peach with truffle honey dressing, wagyu beef bolognaise and skinny fries with Pecorino. Don’t even get us started on their brunch menu. It is the creating of the Manuka Group whom you might recognize from their successful Manuka Kitchen. They just upped their game with Salt & Honey.
28 Sussex Place
Nothing makes us happier than the thought of Peruvian and Japanese food under one roof. Except for Mommi, which is a Peruvian-Japanese style restaurant, but also has an open kitchen and creative cocktails. The menu consists of small plates that are aesthetically beautiful and delightfully tasteful. Here you will enjoy plenty of tiraditos of the freshest fish and Peruvian classics like giant white corn with coriander and yuzu. The ambiance is as playful as the food for an all around exciting experience.
