New Restaurants in London You Have to Visit 

King’s House

Chelsea 

Opened October 2022

£££

King’s House

King’s House, the new spot on the King’s Road comes from the people behind Chelsea institution the Jam Tree. Their new project is a basque restaurant with a mean cocktail selection. 

Masterchef winner Dhruv Baker has had his hand in the menu that ranges from smaller sharey plates, mains of elevated Spanish fare, Sunday roasts and Brunches. 

The latter there being something people are already sizing up for the warmer months given the spacious-yet-secluded garden out back. 

Until the weather picks up they’ll just have to enjoy it in the comfort of the bright, airy pub conversion taking up the ground floor of the beautiful old building King’s House calls home. 

The Viaduct

Shoreditch

Opened August 2022

£££

The Viaduct

The Viaduct is the hottest new opening in the capital. This multi-functional space boasts a restaurant, a taproom, and a cosmic cocktail bar of dreams – head to the terrace for elevated British cuisine in a beautiful setting.

Brunch is served all day (music to our ears), while there’s a hearty selection of sandwiches and mains if you’re feeling hungry. The pork belly with mash, fine beans, and cider jus along with the buttermilk chicken burger are the standouts.

Mriya

Chelsea

Opened August 2022

££

Yurii Kovryzhenko has brought Ukrainian cuisine to one of London’s swankiest neighbourhoods, and it has quickly become one of the best places to dine in the capital. This is one of the London new restaurants we are most excited about.

The menu features Ukrainian favourites, old and new, including the likes of a delicious Borsch – a soup made from tomato and beef, served with heavenly pampushkas which can only be described as giant garlic dough balls – and Chicken Kyiv with mashed potatoes and green beans.

Kovryzhenko is also keen to highlight cultural successes of Ukraine in such a turbulent time for the country – after all, the name Mriya means dream.

Granger & Co.

Marylebone

Opened August 2022

Granger & Co.
Petrina Tinslay

Aussie cafe-slash-restaurant Granger & Co. opened a fifth site in August 2022, following the huge success of their chilled out brunches and dreamy coffee.

The hottest new brunch spot in London, Granger & Co. oozes both style and substance. All day breakfast plates, fresh juices, and some of the best coffee in the capital – what’s not to love?

Sessions

Islington

Opened July 2022

££

London is filled with incredible food halls, but Sessions has come to take the crown. 

The concept? Four unique menus served for a limited amount of time, with local chefs on rotation. The result? Delicious dishes that will leave you dreaming of your next visit.

Expect everything from modern Korean burgers to Ghanian dishes – this spot is a real wild card that never fails to impress.

Sunda Kitchen

Covent Garden

Opened July 2022

£

Expect elegant South East Asian dishes at Sunda Kitchen – after all, it’s named after the tectonic plate that runs through the region.

Thai Lemongrass Chicken, Vietnamese Jelly Fish Salad, and Malaysian Red Curry are just some of the stellar options on this menu, though the entire offering sounds pretty tasty.

Save room for the Banana Fritter Speedboat pud, two slices of deep-fried banana flanking icecream and chocolate sauce.

Feels Like June

Canary Wharf

Opened July 2022

££

Europe meets California at this sunny American restaurant in Canary Wharf – it’s one of the top new trendy restaurants London boasts.

How exactly does that play out in terms of menu? We’ll tell you – with Cacio e Pepe Tater Tots, plenty of Mediterranean-inspired salads, and a killer brunch menu (of course avocado features heavily).

Oh, and a small but groovy cocktail menu featuring cool takes on classics. Pass us a Rhubarb Cosmopolitan, we’re mentally in LA.

Miznon

Soho

Opened July 2022

£

Soho seems to have been a little bit neglected lately when it comes to new restaurants – have no fear, Miznon is here to save the day. Offering delectable Mediterranean cuisine, prepare to be transported from the streets of London to the sunny Med coast.

Chef Eyel Chani has compiled an excellent menu, if we do say so ourselves. The menu is an explosion of flavour, though the falafel pitta is what the restaurant is most famous for. The (bottled) cocktails are ridiculously cheap, so this is perhaps the place to come for a boozy meal with a group of friends.

Roji

Mayfair

Opened July 2022

£££

Looking for new restaurants in Mayfair? An intimate restaurant seating just ten people, if sushi and Sake is your jam, you’ll adore Roji. Especially since there’s a particular focus on exquisite pairings to tickle all of your tastebuds. 

Husband and wife chef duo, Tamas and Tomoko, serve up an omakase menu based on Japanese principles of cooking; grilling, simmering, steaming, frying and cutting. It’s not cheap to dine here, but it’s an incredibly special experience.

The Quarter Kitchen

Hackney

Opened July 2022

£

Alright, so this is less of a restaurant and more of a food truck in a Hackney churchyard, but when Chef Rodrigo Cervantes has worked at the likes of Smoking Goat and Koya, we’re not quite sure we care. 

Mexican breakfast dishes have been pimped up at The Quarter Kitchen – expect the likes of breakfast burritos, tacos, and gorditas. Head there early (it opens at 12pm) for a chance to snag a table.

Isibani

Knightsbridge 

Opened July 2022

££

Isibani

We have patiently been waiting for Isibani to open up in London… And, boy, we were right to be excited. 

This West African restaurant opened in July and is headed up by Victor Okunowo, previous semi-finalist on BBC MasterChef The Professionals in 2020. 

Vibrant designs, bold colours of Nigerian fashion and a menu to die for. Highlights include the jollof rice with grilled broccoli and Ata DinDin, and the Puna Yam served with plantain dauphinois chips and a tangy red pepper emulsion.

Caia 

Notting Hill 

Opened July 2022

££

Another dazzling new opening in London and perhaps the most anticipated restaurant of the year in Notting Hill. Golborne Road’s Caia is a stunning new wood-fire restaurant that has got everyone talking.

The seasonal menu is often changing, but firm favourites include the octopus with burnt pepper and a spicy Nduja crumb, along with the monk fish and sweet corn plate. Save room for the ultra-indulgent chocolate eclair with tonka-bean chantilly cream – you won’t regret it.

Not ready to leave? The restaurant also has a basement where you’ll find a Kuzma R record player with some Auditorium R-25 speakers (apparently, this is a huge deal.) 

The perfect spot for dinner, ambiance and music. 

Upcoming London Restaurants Opening in 2022

These are the spots to keep on your radar this year…

Koyn

Mayfair

Opens September 2022

KOYN Restaurant
Steven Joyce

Inspired by Mount Fuji, Koyn is a brand new izakaya-esque spot opening up in London in September 2022. 

With two different dining spaces dedicated to the volcano and the lush vegetation surrounding it, this restaurant is a conceptual masterpiece. We can’t wait to devour the classy Japanese menu.

OTTO

Piccaddilly

Opens November 2022

There’s a hot new pasta bar coming to London this autumn, and it’s all thanks to Michelin-starred chef Phil Howard and business partner Julian Dyer (Pots & Co).

OTTO started off as an online pasta delivery service, but the team has decided to open a bricks and mortar store in buzzy Central London. It’s expected to be extremely popular, so get ready to fight tooth and nail for a reservation. 

Sparrow Italia

Mayfair

Opens Autumn 2022

Sparrow Italia may be opening in autumn but it’s certainly sounding like it will provide all the summer vibes in its pretty Mayfair restaurant. Chef AJ McCloud is responsible for the menu, so expect a huge European wine list and food inspired by Italian coastal towns.

This looks set to be one of the most exciting new London restaurants 2022 offers.

Raffles

Whitehall

Opens Late 2022

Raffles looks set to be one of the most exciting openings in late 2022. Not only is this hotel going to be h-u-g-e, but it’s going to boast 11 brand new restaurants and bars that are said to reflect the global culinary scene.

In fact, Michelin-starred chef Mauro Colagreco is set to take charge of three of these dining spaces, with a brasserie, a fine-dining spot, and an exclusive chef’s table.
