restaurant openings in london

With a spate of restaurant openings in London slated for later this year and early 2021, there looks to be an uptick in the dining scene in the next few months. From an anticipated seafood palace by Wolseley restaurateurs Corbin & King to the fruition of Salt Bae’s Knightsbridge steakhouse and Jason Atherton’s new culinary playground, all of these restaurants are set to be highly popular. And with limited seating, it’s more important than ever to reserve your table well in advance.

Contact us for bookings and to enjoy priority access. Please note, all bookings will be made in line with government restrictions.

Our members are frequent visitors to Jason Atherton’s Pollen Street Social, so it stands to reason that this new 16-seater launch is set to be another fast favourite. The space, which is right next door to his Michelin-starred flagship, will be host to a thoroughly creative dining experience with a set menu.

We recently caught up with Jason Atherton to discuss life in lockdown, becoming an Instagram cooking star and the future of dining. Read what he has to say here.

Spread across two floors, this Corbin & King seafood destination promises an airy and spacious dining experience. The highly anticipated restaurant will offer casual dining in a contemporary, nautical-themed space with a name that’s a hat tip to the beloved Leicester Square fish shop.
