  1. abc kitchens at The Emory

The famed Maybourne Group, which includes London’s most celebrated hotels The Berkeley, Claridge’s and The Connaught, has launched another.

Nestled in the heart of Belgravia, the all-suite hotel has been working with chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten to bring his acclaimed abc brand to the UK for the first time. The flagship farm-to-table restaurant abc kitchens, has views of Hyde Park and Kensington, as well as art works by Damien Hirst to accompany the dishes. Be one of the first to sample it.

  1. Chez Roux at The Langham

The whole of London cried out when Michel Roux announced that he was closing both Le Gavroche and Roux at The Landau. But he’s not been missing for long. Michel Roux is back at The Langham in May with a restaurant that brings together a mix of British classics and traditional French cooking methods. Expect refined morsels of the most exquisite flavours.

  1. Clap 

Earlier this year, Clap made its way from Dubai to Knightsbridge. The fine-dining Japanese restaurant is spread over two floors, with a rooftop terrace and robata counters. Fill your plates with wagyu beef tartare and foie gras gyozas, and wash them down with aromatic cocktails. Moody lighting and atmospheric beats from live DJS make this a lively hotspot.

  1. Kioku By Endo at The OWO

Endo Kazutoshi is a third-generation sushi master. Following his father and grandfather, he is well-versed in Edomae, a centuries-old style of sushi particular to Tokyo. And he’s been busy. Following his success at Endo at the Rotunda in White City, the acclaimed chef has just opened the Japanese grill and sushi bar Niju in Mayfair. Now he’s gone a step further with a new restaurant and sake bar at The OWO. Opening this spring, the menu fuses Endo’s traditional Japanese heritage with colourful Mediterranean flavours.

  1. The Park

Jeremy King has returned after having been forced to retire from The Wolseley. The seasoned proprietor has already launched Arlington on the site of the old 90s phenomenon Le Caprice. Next up is The Park, a new grand brasserie with similar flare. It will have all the markings of a King restaurant but be brought up to date with 21st century touches. Not much is known about the brasserie at present other than that it will sit on the corner where Queensway meets Bayswater Road.
