We’ve got a fantastic batch of OpenTable newcomers this month, including some of London’s hottest new openings and dining destinations in Leeds, Brighton and Bath. You can find new-to-OpenTable restaurants near you by searching for your area and clicking the ‘new restaurants’ tab.
Pond – Now open in a former Victorian warehouse in Dalston, Pond has brought the bold fusion flavours of New Hawaiian cuisine to London. Expect exotic cocktails and dishes like sambal black cod, smoky beef ribs glazed with grape tonkatsu, and sake seafood udon.
Corner Room – At the Town Hall Hotel in Bethnal Green, head chef John Christie and his team serve ambitious dishes that showcase seasonal British ingredients. We like the relaxed, airy dining room and the great value lunch menu which offers 2 courses for £19.
Omnino – The team behind The Bull Steak Expert have opened a new City steakhouse serving prime cuts of Argentine, Wagyu and American beef. If you’re feeling flash, splash out on their Argentine fillet steak served with a lobster tail and black truffle gnocchi.
Pix Ganton Street – Inspired by the pintxo bars of San Sebastian, Pix serves bite-sized tapas, Spanish wines and cocktails. Try their new bar off Carnaby Street for a Basque-style evening with friends.
Contini Cannonball – Victor and Carina Contini have opened a Scottish restaurant in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town serving dishes like chargrilled venison and twice-baked crab soufflé.
MEATliquor – After the runaway success of their restaurants in London and Brighton, MEATliquor has opened a new booze and burgers joint in Leeds. Drop in for a Dirty Hippy or try new dishes like the London lamb chops and Das Schweinhund, a sauerkraut-topped pork wurst in a bun.
Ponte Vecchio – With great views of Pulteney Bridge, this is the place to go for a traditional Italian meal in Bath. Their alfresco terrace is the perfect place to watch the sun go down over the river.
River Cottage Canteen – Just a stone’s throw from the Cathedral, the latest River Cottage Canteen serves coffee, cakes, local cider and fresh seasonal dishes throughout the day and evening.
Rickshaw – Planning a late-summer trip to Brighton? Rickshaw serves Asian-inspired cocktails and dishes like Japanese gyoza, fragrant Thai curries, and Korean spring onion and seafood pancakes.
