Welcome to the family! – New restaurants on toptable

Fancy trying somewhere new? Check out our round-up of some of the great UK restaurants that have joined toptable recently, including some of London’s hottest new restaurant openings.

New to TT Sept 13

New to London: Berners Tavern and 28-50 Mayfair.

Union Street Café – Gordon Ramsay’s long-awaited Mediterranean restaurant has just opened near London Bridge and tables are booking up fast. His team are using seasonal ingredients from Italy and the Med, as well as what’s available daily from nearby Borough and Maltby Street Market. The menu currently includes veal saltimbocca, fried calamari, rabbit tagliolini and homemade gelato.

Berners Tavern – Jason Atherton has opened his fourth London restaurant, a modern British ‘tavern’ at the London EDITION Hotel. The dining room is one of the best looking spaces you’ll eat in this year, complete with a pewter topped bar and huge chandeliers inspired by NYC’s Grand Central Station.

28-50 Mayfair – This French wine bar is the ideal place to refuel after a day of shopping on Regent Street, especially if you’re a wine lover. They serve over 30 wines by the glass, carafe and bottle, plus over 40 varieties of Champagne, alongside an all-day French menu.

Coal Vaults – Perfect for date nights or girly catch ups, this Wardour Street newcomer pairs quirky cocktails with small plates in a sexy subterranean setting. You’ll never want to leave.

Chop Shop – This new Haymarket hot spot is owned by one of New York’s top restaurant groups and you can definitely see the NYC influence on the menu. With its focus on steaks and chops, it’s a must-visit for London meat enthusiasts and anyone heading to the nearby theatres.

Honky Tonk Clapham – Live music, barrel-aged cocktails and an all-American menu packed with ribs, crab cakes and wings – what’s not to love? Save room for the honey bourbon s’mores for dessert.

Up North: Anderson's and Dog Bowl

Up North: Anderson’s and Dog Bowl

Further north in Birmingham, Anderson’s Bar & Grill is already getting rave reviews from toptable diners. They use locally reared Aberdeen Angus and Shorthorn beef so if you’re craving steak, this is the place to be. If you can’t manage a Porterhouse, you can snack on British tapas plates in the bar.

In Manchester, the Dog Bowl combines late-night bowling with a family-friendly Tex Mex menu. Grab your mates, spend a few hours knocking down pins and then tuck into nachos, burgers and sundaes.

Scottish curry lovers can get their fix at Khushi’s in Dunfermline and Mithas in Edinburgh. Also in Edinburgh, diners at the Khublai Khan Mongolian barbecue restaurant can create their own unique stir-fry using exotic meats like ostrich, camel and kangaroo.
