Yes, you read that right. It might seem hard to believe given the state of the hospitality industry at the moment, but three cheers for the new restaurants opening their doors (or their takeaway hatches at least) in London this month. While we may still waiting a while for the green light to enjoy restaurants like we used to, given we’re SO damn bored of cooking at this point we’re excited to try out the tasty treats these new additions have in store.
PASCOR, KENSINGTON HIGH STREET
A new Aegean restaurant revolving around the cooking styles of countries including Bulgaria, Serbica, Greece and Turkey, with a focus on high quality ingredients and mangal cooking, the menu focuses on sharing plates infused with the rich cooking styles of the countries of the Aegean sea.

HOT STONE, FITZROVIA
We’re BIG fans of the original Hot Stone in Islington, some of the best sushi we’ve ever tasted, so to discover a new addition was coming to central was a real coup. Opening its doors on 28th February, it will bring its award-winning dishes to Fitzrovia, where Executive Chef Padam Raj Rai will be using his 19 years of experience to create an ‘at home’ menu of the highest quality. Expect unrivalled sushi with an extensive range of hot and chilled sashimi, carpaccio and razor sharp maki, hand-shaped and sliced fresh to order, plus a range of hot dishes such as 48-hour marinated Black Cod with Saikyo Miso Sauce.
Delivery will be via available Thursday-Sunday from 5-9pm to select London postcodes within a six mile radius, or collected from the restaurant.
Hot Stone Fitzrovia, 3 Windmill Street, Fitzrovia, London W1T 2HY
While plans to open its doors on West Dulwich’s Rosendale Road have obviously been put on hold, new Indian fine-dining concept Heritage is launching with a new takeaway service on 16th February. Putting a contemporary spin on traditionally grounded recipes, Heritage Home Dining will bring nostalgic family-taught dishes and unusual foods from lesser-known Indian regions and communities straight to your door.
Available to order for delivery to a range of South London postcodes, Heritage’s specially designed collection and delivery menu is the brainchild of Executive Chef Dayashankar Sharma. Perfectly packaged for two people (or more), the dedicated at home menu offers a bijou choice of set dining sharing boxes, along with a selection of à la carte dishes. The classic Heritage Rajputana box (£42 for two) features signature dishes due to appear on the restaurant menu including Mysore Bonda, Murge Makhani, Kasmiri Lamb, Masala Aloo and Dal Makhani. Vegetarian and vegan diners are well catered for with dedicated at home menus for both available (£38 for two), while meat-lovers can indulge in the dedicated Heritage Grill menu (£42 for two), which includes Chicken Malai Tikka and Lucknowi Murgh Kebab alongside a plethora of sides, breads and salads.
The dedicated menu will be available to order via the website Tuesday-Sunday, with delivery available within a 2.5 mile radius of the restaurant during lockdown
