New Restaurants Opening This June in London
iVisit London has got the inside scoop on the new restaurants opening around London!
Thomas Straker became well known for his ‘food you want to eat’ series on TikTok, and is now going to be opening a restaurant in Notting Hill!
So, what does he have planned? The venue is a little sleeve of space that was formerly a Moroccan restaurant. When it’s crammed, there’ll be room for 40 people, so it won’t be large There will be an open planned kitchen with its own concrete bar where patrons can sit and watch Straker cook in person, while the remainder of the restaurant will have a warmer, cosier feel.
With opening menu items, the menu will follow Straker’s online presence of Italian-leaning cuisine.
Chef Akwasi Brenya-Mensa has been popping up across London with his supper clubs and he is now preparing to debut Tatale as a fixed restaurant at The Africa Centre in Southwark.
Tatale draws its inspiration from a Ghanaian dish, its plantain pancake, and serves Pan-African cuisine. The restaurant’s menu will be influenced by cuisines from all throughout Africa, with Ghanaian allusions and Akwasi’s personal experiences and methods.
Miscusi is said to be Italy’s favourite pasta restaurant! After moving to London they take up two floors in Covent Garden and are now working on adding another London restaurant in Islington after the success of their first one!
Bubala, the restaurant founded by Marc Summers & chef Helen Graham, has been a sensation in Spitalfields, and now the duo is planning a second location in Soho.
They’ve taken over the former Vasco & Piero premises (which has subsequently reopened not far away) and will serve the same veggie Middle Eastern-style food as Spitalfields.
The Soho restaurant plans to seat 50 with 8 bar seats!
